Vintage Swatches

Matt and I purchased "new" vintage Swatches at Union Station in DC.

Mine is called Vintage 1995 SWATCH WATCH new Kimiko GR123
Here's what Matt found out about my Swatch:

"Kimiko" is Japanese for "your girl". So the Japanese lady on the top part of the golden strap is your girl. On the bottom side a Japanese text and a red design are depicted. The red transparent case has a golden sunbrushed dial with no further markings. Blue hour and minute hands and a red arrow second hand mark the time.

Here's info on the artist, Jennifer Morla of San Francisco, who created Matt's Swatch Dotchair GR115.

We scored in a very big way as we only paid $35 for these watches.
