    Wow! Hands made on the full moon, and only available to purchase one day month on the full moon.

    That's properly mental stuff!

    Swatch is in a total win-win position on this. Even the hate generated by their marketing techniques and the moonswatch products themselves result in more publicity and even more sales!

    Lame-o. But the morons are on their way to the four cities because, well, it's fun. Swatch has caught on to a way to relive the 1990s, this was how it was 30 years ago, craziness in pursuing a plastic quartz watch. And that was before the internet.

    I don’t get the hate. It’s a cheap, fun, plastic watch that’s relatively cheap.

    I have no desire to own one but I like them and can see why they’re hot with a lot of folk. Fair play.

    The hate is massive on moonswatches in Reddit, they call themselves purists, every single picture of a moons watch or moonswatch strap will get called out for being the ugliest bioceramic POS ever made. Swatch knows what they are doing, crazy thing is this watch probably helped them stay afloat for the time being, gotta love the swatch group lolol.

    I would buy one, if I ever walked into a store and found it in stock. I wouldn’t go above and line up for one at 8am or travel worldwide for one though.

    Scalpers love this already:

    I have thus far bought nine of the bloody things! It was more a cry for help, having patiently been ‘queuing’ for a Snoopy since September 2021 to no avail, and with no one listening…

    I hope this full moon business is the beginning of Swatch focusing more on astrology. Maybe we can expect a bioceramic "Aqua Tarot" series next year?::rimshot::

    I'm glad when an anti-moonswatch is furious.

    I just went on eBay UK and read this from someone who has listed one for £5,000!

    Swatch X Omega Mission To Moonshine Gold MoonSwatch. Brand new, will come with original receipt and untouched. 2 watches available.
    Currently very early in the queue at London Store, will have in-hand in London today (7th March), ready to post in the morning.


    He’s there now, in the queue! Ludicrous!:(

    Just seen someone post a (very poor quality) picture of it on Ebay...Curious to know if the queues are as bad as the original release of these watches.
