Swatch Men’s Watch GB743 Review


Swatch GB743 Watch Review Summary

My rating: 8.5/10. Great watch. Simplistic design.

Today I’m doing a Swatch GB743 review. If you’re after something simple, reliable, and inexpensive, this little beauty could be the ideal watch for you. The ever popular Swatch have once again proved that simple design can still be highly effective. This model was designed with a reliable Swiss quartz movement, a standard day / date function, a water resistant resin case, and a simple to change battery cover. It has a very easy to read design and includes a date magnification bubble in the acrylic glass.

The watch is smaller than your standard men’s watches these days so if that’s something you were looking for, then this could be great for you. The dial has a diameter of 33mm, if you have a smaller wrist and wanted something more suited then this could be ideal for you.

With a plastic style strap and water resistant resin case, this Swatch watch is easy to clean which is another nice benefit. A customer who works in a microbiology lab and has to wash their hands 20 times a day said it was ideal for them.

My Final Thoughts On This Swatch GB743 Review:

The Swatch GB743 really is a very nice simple watch at an affordable price point. If you don’t want to wear one of your fancier watches to work all the time, this little timepiece is perfect. I’m a big fan of the Swatch brand, you can get a monochrome watch like this, or you can go for some of their more colourful designs from our top 10 Swatch watches for men.
