Wil Wheaton Loves His Swatches

Filed under: My Life in Swatches — Laura Moncur @ 11:15 am

I love this photo of Wil Wheaton. I can always depend on him to be overly watched.

Wil Wheaton Swatches

Here is the extreme closeup of his watches:

He’s wearing Big Eclipse, just like he did in this other photo:

Nautilus Swatch 1986 Spring Summer CollectionHe’s also wearing a Nautilus from the 1986 Spring Summer Collection. I was shocked to realize that I don’t actually HAVE this Swatch in my collection. I was sure that I had, but it’s not there. Here is the listing at Squiggly:

It was an incredibly popular watch in its time and if you can find a new in box one now, it’s worth over two hundred dollars. Not bad for a watch that was supposed to be disposable.

Back to Wil, I’m always so sad when I see these old pictures of him. In almost every photo, he was smiling for the camera, but his eyes looked incredibly sad. His eyes didn’t match the smile. Now, when I see photos of him, he always looks really happy. I guess the teen years are hard on everyone.
