This 80's Swatch watch was submitted by John Kenny. instagram user @jerseycityjack

'A swatch watch is disposable, once broken it can only be fixed in an Eastern European county that charges ten fold of the watches original msrp. I've had this watch since I was in highschool, late 90s. I've never sent this watch to be fixed in fear I'll never see it again. My first swatch was given to me in the 80s because that is all my uncles wore at the time. This specific watch was given to me from a friends uncle because I had a mutual respect for swatch. It didnt hurt that I was extremely submersed in car culture at the time and the tachometer face sold me. It is an 88/89 swatch to my understanding.'
