This is a great place to go if you want a gift, specifically a watch, of a quality label and an affordable price.

Swatches designs have matured a bit since their brief stint as ruler of the cheesy watch market in the mid-eighties, but have still kept their flair for the humorous and the unusual.

The funkier ones with plastic bands go for around 1450Kc, while their cleaner, silver-banded cousins, with designs at once functional and decorative, range between 2150Kc and 4550Kc. G-Shocks and other chunky wrist-weights, including the new transparent beat line, will run you around 3000Kc.
