It’s Time to SWAP Your Lifestyle with Tomato Swap DIY and SWAP Loom

Hey loves! Isn’t it about time you make your very own unique watch? If you don’t want to look like everyone else, why not personalize it? Show up stylish and on time to any event with an awesome looking Swap DIY watch from Tomato!

Well guess what? I already made my own stylish piece of wrist candy and it made me a very happy Swapper! It's been 2 weeks since the SWAP Your Lifestyle private preview event and I still can't get over all the fun I had, so here's a recap!



Tomato introduced SWAP DIY and SWAP Loom last August 7, 2014 in Tomato Glorietta flagship store. Themed as "Candy Land" bursting with pastel colors through the different paper fans and decors, guests had loads of fun in making their own Swap DIY watch while enjoying yummy treats like colorful cupcakes, heavenly pretzels and sinfully delicious Japanese donuts from the dessert slash candy buffet.

Swap DIY allows you to have your own customized clock face whether it's an artwork you made, personal design or your photo turned in to a cool Swap Watch. Even seasoned DIY-ers will learn new things to fine-tune their skills at mixing, matching and customizing. After all, DIY projects are the most fun!


First, you’re going to need a photo taken from your phone (hello selfie addicts!) then send it to them. Second option is to choose one of the pre-designed faces for your clock face and then choose any color of strap that you like!


For my Swap DIY watch, I paired a cool blue strap with a pre-designed watch face. The combination of cool hues of  this clock face and blue strap made me an instant… Swap star!  *winks*

What you need to know about Swap DIY:
  • It has 1 year warranty on Japan mechanism and battery. It's not water resistant.
  • For only P1,000, you'll have your personalized Swap DIY face already. The strap is sold separately for P350.
  • These watches are exclusively offered at Tomato Online Store and on Instagram @swapdiy
If you don't have the time to personalize it, you can always get ready made, interchangeable watches for only P1300 then simply mix and match your face and strap with different colors and designs! The possibilities are enedless because they have a lot of faces and straps to choose from.


You can also get the new Swap 5-piece strap for only P1600 and save P650! Isn't that a great deal or what?!

And to make it even more personalized, you can simply LOOM it! Tomato also introduced their recently launched product - the Swap Loom!  You can create your own rainbow loom watch with their specially designed straps, ready for looming. How cool is that?!
