The Swatch Sistem51 is a special thing in the watch world, because it’s an automatic mechanical movement timepiece, completely built by machines in Switzerland.
Only made up from 51 parts, all of which you can see in action at the back of the watch, adds to the aesthetic value and attention to engineering. A 90 hour power reserve with 3 Hz movement, and sealed tightly into the case, the Swatch not only wants the Sistem51 to tell time accurately, but with longevity in mind as well.
Available in four different colors (red, white, black, and blue), the Sistem51 is exclusive to Swatch stores to the Swiss, but will make an American debut during the summer, for $150 each. We’ll be sure to try it out when it releases; till then, wait for spring first.
Press release, after the break.
