Swatch unveiled an Occupy Wall Street–themed watch last week. It's lime green, with the word "Occupy" in big orange letters and a smaller phrase—"your wrist"—across the face. Chief Executive Nick Hayek says this isn't just a crass attempt to cash in on a political movement, even though the Swiss watch brand also produces banker favorite Omega. "Swatch has always been a big defender of long-term, real businesses," he told the Wall Street Journal. [WSJ]
