Swatch - Date In View GW404

Today's watch is one of my Swatch watches, but this one has quite an unusual shape.

The watch is one of the Swatch Standard line of watches and is quoted as being in the Standard Gents line but also as being a unisex watch. It is called the Date In View and was part of the 1998 Spring Summer collection (and has a design date of 1997). The watch case is a standard shaped white plastic design, and has a transparent strap with white and silver panels. The unusual part is the shape of the glass which is the normal depth at the bottom of the face, but is angled so it is sticking out about 1cm at the top of the watch. The front face of the glass is painted with a crosshair design aimed at the centre of the dial, and there is a small date window at the bottom. Behind the glass, the watch face is transparent, so you can see the quartz movement and the full date wheel around the edge. The watch is a two hand dial design, and the hands are transparent with silver around the edges.

The model number for this design is GW404.
