Description: Little rubber guard to go over the face of your Swatch. Came in all sorts of colors, the really rad thing to do was to get two of them and twist them together and then put them on your Haley's Comet glow in the dark Swatch.

Everyone had them. There was one for every taste. Every color and pattern imaginable.

What?! Heck yea - had the clear swatch, the pink face with the polk-a-dots w/ the grey bands - HAD TO HAVE A GUARD - a few of them - then we would exchange the watches with friends (for a week or so) and mix the guards.....To this day - which i was born in 73 - a friend of mine says when we were riding BMX(s) I lent him my swatch guard and from then on he had a crush on me. He swears it has nothing to do with me being the only girl in the neighborhood that rode a PK Ripper....ANYONE remember those? Great times....too bad they're over and we're older.

I always wore my Swatch with the buckle on the top of my wrist, I thought it was so cool to wear it that way. I didn't have a guard at first. One summer when I was 17 I coached a little kids soccer team and one of the kids said he noticed I didn't have a guard for my Swatch so he gave me a guard (I thought that was so nice!). So thats when I put the guard on. It was a "Guard Too" which was the newer version, it snaped on and had a circle around the face of the Swatch. I still wore my Swatch with the buckle on the top of my wrist even with the Swatch Guard, I thought it was so cool to wear it like that.

I don't think they make new Swatch guards, probably just the old ones that are still around. I remember alot of kids wearing their Swatch with the buckle on the top of their wrist but when they have the guard on most of them wear it the regualr way. When I was a teen I had the newer version of the guard, but I still wore my Swatch upside down as I mentioned.

I still have my Technosphere with several guards. It works perfectly, and looks like it just came out of the box. I consider it a collectible now, and hardly ever wear it. I think they should be reissued.

Remember the rubbery ones, and how we used to twist two of them together and wear them?

I have the Comet watch with a pink watch guard, the color of the second hand. I just put a new battery in it today, but the band is shot and falling apart! Anyone know what year that particular watch was made?

No, there are no new Swatch guards made any more. They are limited to whatever old stock that might be laying around somewhere. It's too bad, too; I think they could have been made with different combinations of colors as well as one solid color.

Ellery,the comet swatch was made in 1986, to go with the return of Halley's Comet that year. Hang on to it, they are selling for a fortune on Ebay now. ($100.00 and up).
