Uniform Wares Wrist Watch – The Swatch Of Now

In 1983 I was strutting my stuff in a Benetton pull-over and acid-wash jeans, listening to Houdini “Escape” on my Sony Walkman, and if you had to ask I always knew what time it was because of my Swatch Watch. I was one of the fortunate few who had one of the the first series of Swatches, pictured below. Little did my 8 year-old self know that this very watch would be worth $2000 Buckaroo Banzais in less than 20 years.

As much as I might like to kick myself for not recognizing the collectible nature of 1980′s plastic kitch, I try to remind myself that I was, am and hopefully will continue to be a creature rooted in the now. For this reason I feel a sense of joy by the Uniform Wares line of minimalist wristwatches that harken back to those days of sunny nostalgia. No more will I require my cell phone to tell me what time it is. So uncivilized. I long for the days when a man could be judged by his timepiece, and as everything old is new again I see that I may get my wish.

    I have both a 3G and 3GS and the blatant disregard that Apple has been showing this last year for a nyone for 2010 product owners has me more than halfway convinced that it may be time to drop Apple and their products altogether.ryszar Man, people are really offended when you make a suggestion, If so they whats the point of having a blog like this . . . . FOR ALL THE KNOW-IT-ALLS? Then again maybe it”s just iOS 4.2 IMMINENT RELEASE Making people crazy.and i would also like to say that many of the people posting are very wrong, i have android and it runs the exact same games as iOS, literally. NFS Shift is identical, and so is angry birds and the sims 3 and asphalt and so on.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
