My friend David who lives in Switzerland already bought the new Swatch Sistem51 for 150 Swiss Francs yesterday. Let me show you his first pictures of his blue Swatch Sistem51 and let me resume his first impressions…
David was amazed about the lightness of his Swatch Sistem51. “In the beginning”, he says, “you can not believe that you are wearing a mechanical watch.”
The 42 mm size seem to be ideal for me and this is also what David confirmed me: “The watch just fits perfect on the wrist.”
You can wind the Swatch Sistem51 manually but you cannot stop the second hand from ticking (hack the watch), so it is difficult to set the exact time if you wish.
In terms of accuracy the official seven seconds a day seem to be the worst case. David says, “the deviation actually is much less.” For all the official technical details please click HERE
You also clearly hear the new Swatch ticking (21.600 A/h = 3 Hz) when it is silent around you, “but it is not a noisy timepiece.”
The feeling David says, “was like in 1983 when I bought my very first Swatch. The Sistem51 is a great watch and it´s 100% Swiss made.”
David is collecting Swatch for more than 20 years now and says: “As a Swiss I am happy and proud to see Swatch being back on the track so strong, a couple of years ago I thought it´s over and we Swiss have to say good-bye to Swatch…”

Thank you David!
