Pictures of Bill Gates and Mischa Barton and their big watches

In October 2004, Microsoft and Swatch partnered to create the Swatch Paparazzi, a smart watch that delivered news, sports, and lottery information straight to its owners' wrists, through integration with MSN Direct. Bill Gates and actress Mischa Barton were on hand for its release.

Here, Mischa gives a grateful look to someone off camera:

Soon after, Bill throws a knowing glance at presumably the same person:

The two soak in the glory after Bill explains the watches features:

Here they are looking proud of their watches:

Here they are with some guy:

Here is a collage I made of other photos from the event, my favorite being the one in the middle, with Mischa's casual stance:

This is an animated gif of Mischa and Bill where Mischa is doing a dance and Bill is shaking his head:

I can't believe it's been over four years since the Paparazzi was released and these images were burned into my consciousness forever.
