Sistem 51

Beautiful, well built and accurate watch for essentially being a disposable automatic in my opinion.

In reality it wears smaller than in photos. The only downside for me: Hands legibility which is a struggle to say the least, but I guess it's part of the design.

is the system 51 serviceable?

love the brushed finishing on the case.馃憣

Unfortunately not. The case and movement are sealed as one piece

I was pleasantly surprised if the finishing quality. Even the rubber strap and the buckle are top notch.

How鈥檚 the accuracy of the movement? I owned the Sistem51 Irony and it was running at -16 seconds per day :(((

Nice looking Swatch! I went for something a bit simpler in design, but it has been a reliable watch for several years.

I had it for one week and I do not own a timegrapher to measure the accuracy.

But I set the time against a Casio and so far hasn't lost a single minute.聽

I know it's not the most accurate measuring method or duration, but it gave me a rough idea.

Great piece! My first experience with a Sistem 51 was with the Hodinkee 1986. Beautiful watch for everyday wear. I find it wears large on my wrist however not in the realms of unwearable. I think it's a great way for the general consumer to get into Mechanical watches.聽

Now Swatch needs to get up and turn one of their bioceramic watches into a Sistem 51!

I agree. It's a bit high but flat and no overhang on my 7.5" wrist.

And you are right Swatch has the capability to do whatever they fancy and I think they should have more fun 馃槉
