'Strap a banana around your wrist - and just SMELL the time! The Swatch, a jokey fashion idea that's already sweeping America and is about to be launched here, is a Swiss-made watch which has a strap impregnated with aromas fresh from an Italian ice-cream range. It comes in pretty pastels - blue for mint, pink for raspberry and yellow for banana'.
