After the guy in the Swatch Store restored my Sir Swatch to its former beauty, something inside me snapped. All the love for Swatch came back in full force and I wanted to buy more. Sure, I had spent almost sixty dollars just in batteries to bring all my old Swatches back to life, but I wanted a new Swatch that felt like one of the old ones, so I chose Color The Sky.

The bright colors, stripes and those funny numbers that look like someone wrote them on by hand all remind me of the Swatch of the 80’s, so I bought it. Even though I just bought this watch, I already love it. I have a clear blue Swatch guard that matches the body of the watch perfectly and I love the stripes. Most importantly, I bought two replacement bands for it, so I don’t have to worry about ruining the bands just by enjoying the watch.



  1. I just bought one too and LOVE it! Gotta get used to the loud ticking though, but its a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l watch! :) Makes me smile every time I look at it! Not bad for my first swatch!

  2. Hehe! When my elder sister went to London, she came back with this swatch on! She loved it very much but after pretty much a week she started fretting if it looked too childish (she was 16 years old). So she gave it to me :D! So I’m 13 at the present and I’m loving color the sky ;D my only other wristwatch is this gorgeous one from Disneyland but since CTS is waterproof I can bring it places like Playland :P (wow long comment)
