First, I was won over by the SwatchPaparazzi, and now, asa recreational diver, the Swatch Fun Scuba.The Swatch Fun Scuba comes in seven distinct styles, all but one (the black "Moray'sBite"), predictably wild. Although Swatch's site warns that the Fun Scuba isnot a scuba-diving watch, and that it is meant to be used in parallel with a professionaldive computer, it looks like a fun and suitable companion for recreational divingexcursions.
