I am rather partial to a Swatch watch, for those
that follow me on Instagram you may have seen my Bengali Swatch pop up on
there. For me Swatch offers something rather unique to the market with their
huge range of watches from the most simple to some of the most unique. Swatch
often brings out watches for special occasions, for example, there is one for
the Chinese New Year of the Snake, along with the fantastic Kid Robot
collection of which my beloved Bengali Swatch belongs.
Today I’m going to be featuring the Swatch
Valentine’s watch for 2013 as Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us and well, I
felt I just had to share this with you all as it is pretty fantastic in my
eyes! The watch has been called ‘A La Folie’ which loosely translated means
‘madly’ as in ‘madly in love’. I’m rather overwhelmed with all this
love…on to the watch!
Presented in a sturdy white box it arrived in beautiful presentation, of which once
opened you’re presented with a bright pink ball with a cute white heart on it. For
me this is brilliant packaging and presentation, thumbs up to their design team!
A La Folie for me is a stand out piece amongst the many Swatch watches available. It has a transparent front which allows you to see the working parts of the watch through the heart shaped window. The band is bi-colour with the top being white and the underside pink, it also has a vanilla scented band…I wonder how they did this.
