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.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
