Swatch Unveils Sistem51 Collection

With SISTEM51, Swatch has opened up an exciting new world. The first mechanical movement ever to be made not by hand, but on a fully-automated assembly line, SISTEM51 was presented to an astonished watch industry in April of this year. Now, the first four models are here, and the voyage of discovery can begin!

There is much to explore in this intriguing new world. Unprecedented technological innovation (17 pending patents) enabled the development, in less than two years, of a self-winding mechanical movement with only 51 components in five modules. SISTEM51 is 100 percent Swiss made and features an exceptional 90 hour power reserve. Hermetically sealed within its case, the 3 Hz movement delivers precise, long-lasting, maintenance-free performance.

SISTEM51 opens up a universe of beauty, too. The dial side reveals six of the movement's 19 rubies, and from the back one gazes through a transparent oscillating weight into the heart of this fascinating microcosm. Design is a key part of the Swatch DNA, and SISTEM51 extends its reach into the innovative depths of the movement itself. The visible surfaces of the movement's five modules present a new canvas, a new field of creative expression for graphic designers and contemporary artists.

The first four models set out to discover SISTEM51's expressive potential: Sistem Blue, Sistem Red, Sistem White and Sistem Black.
