Swatch Shine PMK114

Today's watch looks more like I have a sweatband on my wrist than a watch (or as one colleague suggested, a bandage).

As this has a round plastic dial and unusual design, you'd be right if you guessed that it's a Swatch. This model is one of the Pop Swatch models which means it has a larger round case and removable head (that you can pop out).

The design is called Shine and comes from the 1996 Spring Summer collection. The Shine was the silver version, and there were two other similar models in different colours (the Flex in green, and Stretch in pink). The face has a holographic design which catches the light, and the watch case is set into a stretchy silver sleeve. The watch head can be popped from the sleeve, and this allows you to access the crown at the 12 o'clock position. As normal with the Pop Swatches, this is a 3 hand dial design with a loud ticking motion.
