I couldn't pull it off but that is a cool watch.

I remember having a couple when I was in high school damn wish I kept them. Holy crap! Looked up those and the prices are stupid.

Museum of Modern Art tie-in, huh. That's why the MOMA store here in NYC is so much fun - believe it or not, there are always several watches for sale there - they usually have a selection of Mondaine there as well.

Slightly off topic: I once wore a Swatch every day for a year, I think it was around 1991.

My aunt and uncle gave me a Swatch when I graduated high school ('87). I still have it, but it needs a battery. I liked it because it was tasteful. I was not into that late-'80s gaudy look...

not mine, but same model:

If I wore that I'd cut my ear off.

Got the two London Olympics 2012 Swatch watches but that's it.

Never worn either, don't even know if they're still working, probs both got flat batteries..

Too wee for me.
