In what has become an annual tradition at HODINKEE, we’re excited to announce our latest take on Swatch’s modern classic, the mechanical SISTEM51. For the third year in a row, we worked with the Swiss brand to produce a timepiece that is fun, affordable, and highlights the company’s key role in the revival of the Swiss watch industry. The fact that it also contains the SISTEM51 movement, one of the most interesting mechanical developments in the watchmaking world this past decade, ends up as a pretty great bonus. Say hello to your new weekend watch, the SWATCH SISTEM51 HODINKEE GENERATION 1986… More here.
I’m not a fan of the continual Hodinkee limited edition runs, but this watch is beautifully designed for the price.
