Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Swatch Story

My watch band broke a while ago. It has taken me a longer time to fix it than I thought it would. It’s a Swatch, so I thought I should find a Swatch store to fix it. It took me several days to remember to look for Swatch stores in LA. There are no Swatch stores. Dang. But I did see that there was a regular watch store that did repairs in a mall nearby.

After another several days, I finally went to the mall. The watch store guy said Swatch bands are specialty items, and he couldn’t help me. Dang. But he said I could look online.

After another several days, I looked online for Swatch bands. The Swatch site didn’t have the silicone band I was looking for. Dang. But I looked on Amazon, and China appeared to have something that would work with Swatch watches.

The new band came in the mail yesterday. I didn’t wait several days to put it on my watch. Yay!

    Wow! I am impressed! Did it come with that little tool or did you have to buy it at the watch store?

      It did come with the little tool, which made it quite easy to swap the bands.
