The main concept behind Swatch was, to create a lower priced products, to regain the importance of Swiss watches by generating a much larger market for them, in order to compete the Japanese watches which gained popularity from the Eighties all around the world.
Swatch watches were not only a new sort of watches in the 80ier and 90ies but created a completely new fashion trend and a watch movement in order to adapt the easy-to-use watches in the world of complicated watches. Swatch was in real created as a teenage brand of watches.

Swatch is not only a trendy watch though, as it is the creator of several novelties in the world of watch making by creating the world’s thinnest watch the Delirium which was created in 1979. Since then Swatch has created the "skin" concept of wrist watches which means watches that absolutely take the form of its wearers’ wrist.
