Extremly nice but with flaws Review by FroLOnn

The watch are so great! The look, the feel etc. I like them so much!
However after 5 month of use the crown became impossible to pick up without external tools. I came to SWATCH shop, gave the watch to them and after a month of inspection they told this was an internal flaw so I were able to change the watch for a new one for free.
Since I linked the model so much I decided to chose the same again, thinking it is impossible to get the second flawed watch in a raw.
Surprise! After 7-8 month I had the same problem with the crown! It became a true nail-breaker for me so it is almost impossible to adjust time!

I may be wrong, but I think the model itself has an internal design flaw causing th problem. Being beautiful as it is, it should not be being sold anymore in this case...

Such a pity... I'd happily have a working model of such a nece watch...

It's a great looking watch, but it gains a few minutes every week. One problem I had was that sunscreen on my arm caused the plastic back to loosen, but when it was still under warranty, Swatch replaced it without charge. But now the crown somehow got pulled out, and the local dealer told me since it's no longer under warranty, it would cost 70% of of a new one to fix it.

Very nicely made. Very comfortable on my wrist.

My only gripe is that it is a bit difficult to see the hands against the background of the works.

Recommend the addition of a 1..12 ring (like on some of the other see though watches) to help with setting and telling the time.

Although a Movado doesn't have numbers, at least you can see the hands!

I fell in love with this watch the moment I saw it at Manor Luzern, Switzerland. My husband bought it for me for my birthday present and to remind us of Switzerland. (He likes the watch too btw). At the beginning I thought the size of the diameter might be too big for my tiny wrist. But I gave it a try and it just sits perfectly. I love the design and the price is so reasonable. I also read reviews saying that over years the watch will add a minute or two or even five minutes each day. But hopefully this is not the case. If it's true, I hope Swatch Company would invest more in fixing this problem. But at the meantime, I'm one HAPPY CUSTOMER with an inexpensive watch that looks expensive that I wear everyday. :-)

The first time I saw this watch I felt in love. It was just the watch I'm looking for. I did not like metal watches until I saw this. Its awesome.

But the downside is, I scratched the watch and I'm troubled because I thought it was scratch-proof!

I got this watch back in 1999 and never took it off until 2010 or so. I'm really tough on it and broke the band several times (where metal band attaches to strap pins are plastic covered in thin metal so has a tendency to stretch) It almost always broke when thowing punches and sometimes during other strenous activity (I wear it while playing hockey).

Face is hard in my opinion, it takes a serious scratch to mar the surface, and even when scratched the indent seams to fade away over time.

Internals are bulletproof, literally. I've had this watch fly off my wrist and really take some hard hits. Direct paintball hits and hockeystick slashes didn't faze it. It did start losing about an hour a month after 6-7 years, but I had it looked at by a watchsmith in the philipines and they fixed it for $10. I didn't wear it for the last 3 years due to it rubbing while slaving of a keyboard all day, and it sat in a desk. I just took it out and put it on and it works perfect (not sure if its going to lose time though)

Is a bit loud though, it makes a nice "boioioioing" spring sound that you can hear all night if you sleep with it near your head. But it actually seams more soothing than a straight ticking.

Have always gotten ALOT of compliments on this watch, and it has been the basis of many conversation starters. Also when killing time you can easily sit and watch the internals

My husband and I have had this watch for 14 years and still wear it and love it! It is a great size for both of us, looks incredibly expensive, still runs great, gets compliments on a regular basis. The only down side is that you have to be really careful not to scratch it sense it is plastic instead of having a crystal.

I have to say this is my favorite watch. Aside from the obvious that I'll never have to replace it battery wise, it's just different from other watches. I've gotten lots of compliments already from it and love the fact that it's functional through motion. I would like to say however, that I wish swatch would come out with a bigger selection of automatic watches.
Good watch - but has some limitations. Wish there were more styles. Review by DdH

I have had a couple of Automatic type watches. Been very impressed with them. They look great and offer a traditional movement that is similar to a Rolex.

This particular watch I own and although I like it a lot, it is a little hard to read at night. Using a light to shine on it to read the hands gets you to see all the movements and is hard to actually see the "right" moving parts. But, that is just a little inconvenience for a greater product.

The bad thing about this watch is that it will only last for about two and a half years before it starts to slow down. By three years, it is not keeping very good time any longer. I had this experience twice (identical). I was told by a store staff that it is out of warranty and to repair it would cost more than buying a new one.

At the time, the price was a little lower than now, so it was just time to replace it.

Again, it is a great watch with some limitations. I would recommend it if you like traditional watches without batteries and enjoy the power of the engineering that goes into a watch like this. But, if you are looking for a light weight, ever lasting digital or quartz watch, this is not for you.
Is Swatch Irony, 'Body and Soul' # YAS100G Here To Stay? Review by KNMN**$*
(Posted on 12/8/12)

I surely hope & expect that Swatch Ltd. will make a major announcement, if the Dreaded Day EVER Comes, concerning the company's long range
plans for the wildly popular, inexpensive Wonder of Wonders in the World of Fine Automatic Timepieces, the Swatch Irony Skeletonized Automatic 'BODY and SOUL.'

More directly, is Swatch Ltd. going to continue to produce this piece indefinitely, or are its days as a major sales competitor in the world market numbered? I would surely imagine it sales figures
remain rather stable worldwide since its introduction in the U.S. market in 1996.
I can't really relate in words the tremendous place of importance this timepiece has doggedly
held onto for so many years the world over. I would also surmise its major area of importance among wristwatch aficionados is in bridging the gap between the $30.00 quartz model to the major purchase, generally years down the road, of a piece valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases. My opinion is KEEP THE "BODY & SOUL" AROUND for as long as possible, and allow it to continue to be a successful catalyst between the wristwatch 'Newbie,' and the serious collector of fine timepieces.

I love this watch. I have had one for probably 15 years. I have gone through 3 though, and don't abuse them; I actually take very good care of them. The crown on the first got stuck in the closed position, so I could not set the time; I would literally break my finger nails trying to open the crown. Swatch would not replace or repair. So I bought a new one- that one would lose an hour a day and was replaced. The third was the same way. On my fourth now, and I love it. It keeps great time. It's gorgeous. But I am scared of it breaking again.

In short, I will always have one of these - I just hope I don't have to replace it every few years.

Got this watch at Frankfurt airport in 1999. Love at first sight. Paid about $100-120 USD equivalent of German marks. Gave to my husband as a gift. He loved it and kept using it for 10+ years, daily (until I bought a high tech Casio for him about 2 years ago). He still wears it occasionally and treasures it very much. A great piece of investment -- the quality, utility and style matched those $3000+ watches.

I bought this watch I late 1998 since it was self winding and has a movement almost like a Rolex. These things along with the see through case caught my eye. I have used it as a work watch and dress watch over the years and have had many compliments. Only drawback is plastic face scratched fairly easily. Would be worth twice with a crystal glass instead of plastic.
