What's for sale?
This is the Swatch "Coffe Break" unisex stopwatch from the Swiss maker's Autumn/Winter 1992 catalogue. The model number is SSK100.
It's a funky design and one of Swatch's best sellers. It has a luminous yellow crown and quarter hour markers. The dial is a mix of black and grey and luminous purple and orange. The numerals and the hour and minute hands are blue.
The plastic strap has a tactile finish in black, with orange and blue strap retainers.
Inside is a reliable ETA quartz movement powered by a 390 battery. This movement also provides stopwatch functionality. However, unlike most stopwatches, it uses the hour and minute hands, so that when reverting to normal functionality, they'll rotate rapidly until they show the current time again.
Press the crown to start and stop the stopwatch. When the stopwatch has been running for about three minutes, the watch will revert to show the normal time, but the stopwatch will still be working in the background. To see what the stopwatch is doing, press the crown again to show the current time for the stopwatch. Press the crown when in stopwatch mode to stop it and press it again to reset to zero. After 5 seconds left at zero the watch returns to normal mode. Don't lose the instructions!
