I love watches. I love anything personalized. Put the two together and I am the happiest kid in the world! Tomato (oh, another favorite!) released a new concept in the watch industry last year – a watch with interchangeable silicon straps and water-resistant watchfaces called SWAP.
After a year, the craze is still on and even more fun with the SWAP DIY (Do It Yourself) watches! The launch was held yesterday at Tomato Store, Glorietta 2. It was like a fun fair when I got to the store!
The Tomato Store even became more colorful with the display of interchangeable watches, fun food and yummy candies!
I was in trouble though. I am not very good at anything D.I.Y. I mean, I need a little inspiration before I can go make a masterpiece. Thankfully, there is a guide available in the store where I can select the kind of strap and watchface I want – and with just a click, I can see the preview.

I was already set and ready to complete my DIY details when I found out we can have our photo printed in the watchface! Most of the guests decided to get this design! We just had to select the color of the strap that we want and send them over the picture we want in the watchface.
I decided to try this to really feel the DIY factor of this new craze! Matet from Tomato is so awesome to teach me how to do the loomband strap. She started it and I continued. Thank you to my niece, Lhana for teaching me how to do fishtail! This one’s for the watch is a little complicated but still fun to do!
