Swatch Irony XLite Watches New For 2015 Watch Releases

Swatch is a design machine and probably produces more new watches each than any other Swiss watch maker; and for 2015, we see the Swatch Irony XLite collection. Of course, Swatch’s prolific design lab makes sense, since Swatch is a major money maker for the larger Swatch Group where the Swatch watch brand sits as the stable base. Because there are a lot of people around the world who buy Swatch watches, and because they make fun and affordable gifts, we like to cover them. Also, even high-end watch lovers like to get a Swatch every once in a while, given their fun designs. Swatch timepieces also have the unique benefit of being an inexpensive watch you can wear around watch snobs without them snickering at you.

In the watch industry, Swatch watches are also seen as one of the few timepieces you can wear to any brand that they won’t get upset about despite it being one of their watches. No, Swiss watch makers aren’t at all competitive… Those who don’t know might also find it interesting that in order to not look as though he is favoring one brand or another, Swatch Group Chairman Nicolas Hayek almost exclusively wears Swatch watches (often one on each wrist) while making public appearances and during major watch industry events such as Baselworld.

Swatch Irony collection timepieces have a huge amount of variety and tend to be the slightly higher-end Swatch models, as they use some metal in the cases – most of these watches, for example, have aluminum and plastic cases. These models further focus on futuristic design, which I think is pretty cool. Given the “XLite” name, it is also safe to say that the Swatch Irony XLite collection timepieces aren’t at all heavy on the wrist.

For Swatch, the entire point of the Swatch Irony XLite collection is to focus on the light-weight design that uses plastic and aluminum, as well as the colorful contemporary (yet still familiar) designs. There is a light playfulness to the designs that is both modern and attractive. What I like about most Swatch watches is that while they can get abstract in their designs, most all retain the core elements that make up what a time-telling watch dial should be.

The Swatch Irony XLite collection includes both three-hand and chronograph models in various colors. The chronograph models are my favorites, and for the money, these are pretty cool. Each contains a Swiss quartz movement, with varying specs. Basic details on each of the models is below, including the model name and reference numbers. Prices for the new Irony XLite timepieces are between $120 – $175 and are available on store.swatch.com.
