Wake Up! (It's 1984)

This is part of a four piece release from Swatch that pays homage to what kicked everything off back before most of you reading this were born. Or to quote that other noted commentator on the watch business, Marge Simpson - 

"This story begins in the unforgettable spring of 1983. Ms. Pac-Man struck a blow for women's rights and a young Joe Piscopo taught us how to laugh"

At any rate, this is the ROUGE & NOIR from Swatch and their 1984 Reloaded drop. It taps into those halcyon days of yesteryear when there was a Soviet Union, and Frankie told us to relax.

The case is BIOCERAMIC, and the strap is made of what Swatch refers to as BIO SOURCED, I am still not 100% sure what that means, but at any rate, that's the info.

It is priced a bit more than the standard 41 mms at $90.00 US.
