The Brand: Swatch
In the 1970s, the Swiss watchmaking industry was in crisis. At a time when the world market was expanding strongly, Swiss exports were falling.In the space of just a few years, the number of persons employed in the Swiss watchmaking industry fell to less than 40,000. The Swiss had missed the boat, despite the fact that it was they who had developed the first quartz wristwatch. But the Swiss watchmaking industry was focused on traditional movements and continued to rely on proven sales methods. In 1982 the first Swatch collection is ready and sees the initial production run of 300,000 watches. In 1996 Swatch serves as sponsor and timekeeper at the 24th Stramilano in Italy, with 50,000 runners participating over the course of the two-day event. A Italian marathon runner and winner of the gold medal at the 1988 Olympic Games, accompanies Swatch, offering advice to participants in the races. The event also serves to promote the role of Swatch as Official Timekeeper at the upcoming Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games.
It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.
Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.
This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.
Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent
When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!
Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.
How to measure your wrist
You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:
You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.
In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.
Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.
Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally
If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
