Hey, you remember the Swatch Big Bold line, right? We reviewed one of the “Jelly” options not that long ago (you can see that here), and the brand has kept iterating on that design, bringing us some big blasts of color in the form of Swatch Big Bold Planets.

More than just a simple change-out of the resin feeding the injection molding machine, we’ve got the similar colors showing up on the movement tucked into the watch (which makes sense since it’s an open dial), and the dial and chapter ring has had some changes made to it. And actually, each of the four colors have some slightly different designs on there, so you’ve got some choices to make if you’re looking for this pop of color for heading on into winter. And while the colors are pretty intense, they’ve toned it down with the included straps, so it’s not like you’ve got neon screaming away from your wrist.

Regardless of whether you opt for the blue ‘Second Home’, orange ‘Oops’, purple ‘Touchdown’, or green ‘Come in Peace!’ you’ll be paying $135 to strap one of these colorful creations (along with it’s spare strap – and strap changing tool) onto your wrist.
