Swatch Dreamwater SDB113

There are many ways I choose which watch to wear - it may be based on an event, which have batteries, but today it was because the colour matched my top.

Today's watch is the Swatch Dreamwater, and this was a Swatch watch designed for surfing (and is part of the Scuba range) . The main difference is the strap which is a long fabric and velcro one with a neoprene strip as the backing (with the Dreamwater name printed on it). This strap is actually long enough to to be used over a wetsuit and the material will also be good under water.

The case is a thicker watertight case which is rated to 200m. It has a rotating bezel with minute markers which I guess can be used for dive timing. The hands are also easy to read with the minute hand having an arrow at the end, and all hands being glow in the dark.

This model has the number SDB113, and came with two strap lengths (which add an L or S to the end of the model number). It is part of the 1998 Autumn Winter collection, and was designed in 1997.
