    Swatch Body and Soul

    Can anyone give me an accurate size of the Body and Soul? I have seen 38 mm to 43mm.

    Well... yeah... let's see your pics too. Lol

    Educated guess it's 36-38mm in diameter; straps tend to taper to 18mm on some models. I can find out for sure, just have to dig it out sometime.

    Here's mine,

    I'll try to find mine as well, it's been stashed since one watchmaker said it can't be fixed (accidentally dropped it). And, if anyone knows who CAN fix these, let me know. It has sentimental value.

    It definitely can be fixed; however, you'll have to get the plastic cover on the back off first. Then the movement can either be fixed or replaced. It use to be possible to source a suitable ETA 2842 replacement movement. A local watchmaker could replace for you. Good luck!

    I accidentally broke the plastic caseback, and was able to remove it (this is relatively easy to do on the Irony Automatics). This provides access to the movement, which should then be serviceable like any other mechanical movement. I repurposed a pressured fitted acrylic crystal with a tension ring as a replacement caseback.
