These are very attractive, will be going down to London to pick up a Pluto if I get the chance. My fear is that the first load of stock in the stores will be emptied out in a day or two before I get down there.

More like an hour or two.

You're probably not wrong. Super desirable from the pics and I'm sure collectors will want the 'set'.

These look great, and even had me browsing the Swatch store for other models. If I can't get one of these then I've got my eyes on a swatch automatic that looks good value smile

Lot of money for a plastic swatch with only 3atm water resistance. Even the Chinese speedmaster copies are better than that and less than half the price.

Hmm. Last time I looked the Speedmaster only had 5atm WR, and the Chinese homages didn’t have Omega on the dial.
These are going to sell out instantly.

Limited to 2 pieces per customer, but yeah ... I imagine they will sell out quickly!

Just popped in.

They are £207. They are not limited, they are not numbered and are available from 9am Saturday.

They won’t reserve, limited to 2 per customer and they will be restocked but they don’t know when.

I will get a couple maybe even the set but no way of getting to a store so will probably have to let the hype die down and get in a few months.

Glad to hear they aren’t a limited release.

Will be people trolling the seller with no intention to pay at the end.

Many thanks for getting in touch,

If you are contacting us regarding our Bio-Ceramic MoonSwatch Collection then I am afraid we can not answer your emails due to high volume.

However, we launch on Saturday 26th of March 2022.

The store will be opening earlier than usual that day at 9am and we do recommend customers interested in purchasing to make their way to the store early, as we are expecting large queues.

Please be aware that purchases of our special products are strictly limited to 2x per customer, and we can not reserve stock under any situation, these are purely first come first serve, in person.

Many thanks for your understanding and we hope to see you on Saturday the 26th.

Kind Regards,



SWATCH STORE
99a Princes street,
Edinburgh

United Kingdom

Not going to be an easy buy I’d imagine.

Popped into the Edinburgh shop this morning to have a look. They have the full set in the window - same story, no reservations, 2 per customer and they might be opening earlier in the morning on Saturday

The photography on the website, as with all things, is very flattering. They don't look quiet as good in the flesh, the straps don't look that great. The darker colours look better so the Moon & Mercury in particular. The other brighter colours do look a bit too plastic, but then they are!

I really liked the Saturn one from the images on the website but in real life the colours look a bit washed out and I much preferred the Mercury.

If you go in expecting way more Swatch than Omega then you'll be fine. It's definitely not an Omega speedmaster with a quartz module as someone suggested (possibly in jest)

It's an interesting collection and a nice everyday but if it's not limited then probably not much point in trying to get one on Sat.

Just noticed there's one on Ebay currently sitting at £61,600! Seems a bit optimistic!
