BEST WATCH EVER! Review by Layne

I got this watch for Christmas last year, and I loved how it was neutral yet different because of the clear face. I've worn it EVERY DAY since I've bought it and I love it. It's held up extremely well through school days and even the occasional lacrosse practice. Buy this watch, it is fantastic :)
Nice, Classic Watch Review by KL

I used to love the more colorful designs of Swatch but now that I am older and in the workforce, I tend to gravitate towards the classic designs. I prefer the leather bands vs. the plastic bands, since the leather bands tend to get softer over time. I also like the fact that the watch glows in the dark. Another perk I like is having the day and date on the watch.

I have always liked Swatch, ever since I bought my first one (Jelly Fish) in a department store for my birthday, way back in 1987. 26 years later, I still have this model and wear it periodically. I would recommend "Croissant Chaud" for any individual of any age who wants a no frills, easy to read, classic style of watch without the high cost of some other brands.

Lastly, with Swatches, you save on having to bring it to a watch repair store to have the battery changed. Just buy another battery at a store and change it yourself (hint: a nickel seems to work well in opening the battery cover without damaging it).

I love the simple, classic face. The hands and numbers always glow in the dark, which is nice. It is also extremely comfortable and seems to blend with everything in my wardrobe.

I'm now wearing my second "Croissant Chaud." My first was a gift from my parents I finished college / started working full time in the late '90's. I wore it working overseas while working in the Peace Corps in the tropics for two years and through 5+ years of teaching school. The band became worn, flimsy, and discolored, but the face remained good as new for years. I replaced the band in 2002, and scuffed the face badly i a biking accident in 2005, after which I sadly could not easily read the face, and I stopped wearing it.

My husband found this model in an airport in 2010 and bought me my second copy. Today, I am replacing the battery of the 2010 model for the first time. The band of my "new" Croissant Chaud is now almost as shabby and discolored as the first, but the face is still in perfect condition, and the band is wearable. I can't decide if I want to replace the band now or wait for for the buckle to break entirely. I kind of like the shabby look, and the feel of the band now it is worn and flexible.

I gave the quality 4 stars due to the band's inability to hold up to many years of water or sweat. Don't let that hold you back - this watch is a classic you could love for decades.

Very happy with this purchase Review by V

I bought this watch about a year and a half ago and I wear it everyday. I really like the look and the glow in the dark hands are convenient. I recommend it!

I had this watch for about two years and I absolutely loved it. I found it to be quite versatile with both a casual and more-dressed-up wardrobe.

I don't think I ever took it off unless I was in the shower or the swimming pool. (I would recommend taking it off even though it is waterproof as water wears on the leather band and discolors it).

I only gave this watch up once it was so damaged (water / fights with my hair straightener which melted half the face) that my sweet husband bought me a look-a-like replacement. A for effort, love, but I don't think I've ever loved another watch more than this one.
