UPDATE : Swatch Sistem51 now on sale

Sistem51b

Further to my post earlier this year about the groundbreaking Swatch Sistem51, this much anticipated watch has finally been released, a few months later than originally expected.

The Australian release date was meant to be October 2013, but a local Swatch boutique told me in early November that it was due to be released in Switzerland on 22 November 2013, with the rest of the world to follow in June 2014. It is now officially available, albeit still only in Switzerland, as of Monday 16 December, after a launch held on Sunday 15 December with Swatch Club members at La Cité du Temps.

The ‘rest of the world’ launch is now estimated to be ‘early next year’. The colours avilable in this first release are blue, red, black and white. Click on the images above for close-ups. The price of the Sistem51 is 150 CHF/ 120 EUR.
