Buckle broke the first day. Swatch replaced it but it broke again causing me to loose the watch.

The flimsy plastic piece in on the band broke during the second week of use... and is not covered by warranty. Not worth it to buy a $25 replacement band for a $50 watch.

Band buckle broker the second day, and retailer says band not covered by exchange or repair warranty. Really? Now I own a pocket watch for $50. Cheapo thin plastic buckle. Unbelievable. Going to buy a Timex.

this watch is not getting one star for the watch itself, but more for swatch. returning this watch has been incredibly painful. Returns cannot be made in stores unless exchanged and while reading instructions on how to make returns, we not only have to write reasons and quantity which is outdated, but the instructions website provides a link for return via ups, however the link is to the same page you are already on. i am never ordering a swatch watch again.

Great classic watch. Had them for 25+years. No need for anything else. Never take mine off whether sleeping, swimming or just working. Understated but classic. Strap needs replacing around every 12-18 months but still worth it.

I bought this watch from the Swatch store in Zurich, Switzerland this summer and I have worn it every day since. I wanted a classic Swiss watch as a souvenir and I'm very happy with my choice. I like that is is easy to read the time and that it shows the day of the week and the date as well. A great classic watch.

JUST WORKS Review by Bird Man

I have had a Swatch on my wrist 24/7 since the mid 80s. They just work!!

My wife, girl friend at the time, bought me my first Swatch for my birthday. Black band, easy to read, not flashy and it had a date!!! With absolute confidence I have corrected people as to the time, day and date. If you take your time and set it exactly this masterpiece of form and function will maintain amazing accuracy!!

When I got my new "Once and again" I was as happy as I was in 1986 when I received my first. I try to treat myself to a swatch at least once a year and when I get to go buy a Swatch store I stock up on batteries bands, accessories and they usually clean and polish the one on my wrist. Some 25 years later everyone in my family has at least 2 Swatches.

Cheers!

I have had this watch since the 80's. Very good watch face, durable. The only problem since the 80's to now is the watch BUCKLE. Always breaks. I bought one this year 2013 and the buckle is thinner plastic than it used to be. Broke in one month, the buckle. Love the watch face itself, disappointed in the craftmanship on the watch band buckle, very flimsy.

Great watch! It is my first swatch I bought 15 years ago. The watch still keeps perfect time but the plastic band broke and I can't seem to find a replacement. The band is connected to the case in a way that requires the case to be replaced as well.

This watch fills in nicely for a very similar swatch I purchased in 1984 and still use. It keeps great time, is almost bullet proof and looks great either in the gym or boardroom.

I love this model so much that I couldn't help but write this review. This was the second time I bought this same model; the fact that I am not the only one who has bought this same watch repeatedly is testimony to its awesomeness. Granted it is not as big as most men's watches, I still love it more than my bigger manly watches; it is very easy to read and the most basic watch in the world. I am handicapped and only like the most basic, simple watches. This watch really does suit my style!

It's hard to go wrong with an affordable, minimalist, classic watch. Just a reminder that compared to current styles, this watch is small. An update to a bigger size would be a great addition. Thank you.

I have worn Once Again since high school - got the strap of my second watch replaced today. It's all you need really it's simple and functional. I always give this away for birthday. I also bought a Black Rebel today but I know I will be wearing this model as long as Swatch makes it.

I have had this watch for 3 years. At this moment only the band has been replaced which is also cheap. I have used this at the office, hiking, swimming, and skiing and has worked perfect. The plastic face has not scratched at all despite all the use it has had. Highly recommended if you want a durable, classic, practical and an excellent quality watch.
Absolutely Positively Best Watch Ever! Review by Teri

I have had this watch FOREVER! Past photos of when my daughter was born shows the watch on my wrist 19 years ago. I think I replaced it once -- with the same watch. Replaced the battery once. I work in the fire service so it has definitely stood the test of --dare I say -- time.

Today I think it finally met it's demise. Thank God I can still buy the same watch. And did I say it was absolutely positively the best watch ever!

I bought mine at the airport store in Switzerland and had it for years and only had the buckle break and they replaced it for free. It went through a rough day at work and it died so I am going to get the same watch again.

This watch is great for someone that is looking for a uncomplicated time piece. It tells time like a charm the miniscule ticks on the sides makes it so that you can be as accurate as the guy next to you wearing a digital watch. Simply with this watch there is no guessing, squinting or need to estimate the time. It looks great on girls/ladies as well not big or clunky at all. Plus for all you germs conscious people out there this watch is a breeze to clean!

P.S - The watch does make a ticking sound which oddly enough is quite evident, not a major deal breaker for me but odd none the less.

I have had this watch before. When the watch band went bad, I replaced with a white band one time. Had a very sharp look. Wish they would make the exact one in white. Also, would love a bigger version. What a show piece that would be!!!!!

This watch is thin, light weight and easy to read. The quality is evident. I have not had to adjust the time for 5 months. It is spot on accurate. The night view in darkness was a bonus that I found out after the purchase. It is my casual watch of choice.

I like this watch because the face is very easy to read. Plus, I like having the day and date function to glance at. Also, each hour of the watch as well as the hour and minute hands glow in the dark, so that is handy at night. Price is affordable and the watch is understated enough to be appropriate for work. I would highly recommend purchasing this model for a casual, basic watch without the high price seen in other brands for a similar style.

The face is easy to read and I like having the day and date function. Plus, there are markers around each hour that glows in the dark, as well as the hour and minute hands. Price is also very affordable at $50.00. If you want a watch that is appropriate for work and play, then I would recommend that you buy this model.
