    Where to buy in person Swatch (the brand, not company) and where to find info online

    So I'm looking at getting a Swatch for someone. Not Swatch Group. Swatch. There's no Swatch boutique near me. So I was wondering if you guys know of any department stores that sell Swatches in person? I need to see if they would be reasonable on the wrist (as you gather, the recipient is somewhat young). No, I'm not going to think about a Hamilton or Seiko or whatnot. I know what they want.

    I'm located in the Pacific NW, so the I5 corridor of Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia/Portland/Salem/Eugene area is where I'm looking, but also Spokane is reasonable (I've got a few months). I may be around Monterey (unfortunately not able to make it up to San Jose/SF) and Charlotte as well. I can't recall seeing any in department stores in the US.

    The other thing is, do you guys know anywhere that actually has info about their watches? I'm looking at Swatch's site, and there's NOTHING! Some of the watches have the "functions" (complications) listed but no size. The only ones with size are the ones without functions.

    Edit: I just found one with "functions" that showed size. But a good lot of them don't.

    The Squiggly website is good for looking at all Swatch models, both current and historical.

    Thanks. Now I just need to find a place to see them. Though if worse comes to worse I can look at similar sized watches and guesstimate.

    I know Tourbillon has a swatch models display in store. Call them and ask.

    Thanks. I'll do that tomorrow. Could use an excuse to return to Seattle anyways.
