Swatch Sistem51 – Mechanical Watch Multifaceted

The Swatch Sistem51 is a watch for everyone – with respect to the design and especially the price. At least for some of us, the interest in watches began in the 1990s by a Swatch. And even if we might today have more expensive watches, there is no reason not to come back to Swatch, especially since the arrival of the Sistem51 on the market. This timepiece to the unusual design, rich colors, celebrated his debut in 2013. He won prizes and over the years many versions of the model have expanded his choice.


Swatch has attached great importance to the fact that the design of the dials reflect the composition of the movement initially.New versions score points with more traditional designs; the markers on the dials have yet remained.

The Swatch Sistem51 is operated by a mechanical self-winding movement. The rotor, which feeds the energy watch, moves with each movement of the wrist. If the watch is not worn for a certain period of time, it’s not bad, because the Sistem51 has an impressive reserve of 90 hours.
The movement is swiss-made – it is entirely designed, developed and produced in Switzerland. It is composed of 51 spare parts and its Assembly is fully automatic. the implementation of this process took a lot of time to Swatch. The movement parts are partly in metal and some plastic. Unlike other movements, it does not to be dismantled and more later reassembled.
all watches Swatch Sistem51 using three central hands show the hour, minutes and seconds, and are – according to the design – with various date apertures at different positions on the dial.

The housings of the Sistem51 are plastic. Most models have a diameter of 41 mm and a thickness of 13.6 mm.

The Sistem51 is a watch that is on the market in different versions, offering thus the possibility of purchasing a large number of fans and is affordable for small budgets. Prices are about 140 euros at vintageinconfidential.com, which is respectable for a Swiss watch with mechanical movement.
