Swatch Lin Air Chronograph 2005

 

After its phenomenal success in the 80s the Swatch watch looked to diversify a little. We saw the square swatch, the Aqua Scuba and this, the chronograph.

This model from 2005 is also different in that it is constructed in aluminum, the Irony range that this is part of is made from materials other than plastic.

It’s name is Lin Air and I think it’s a great looking watch, the stripes on the strap gives it an even sportier look. It’s a three register chrono with a dedicated sub second hand and a date.

A great find

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
