Swatch has designed a new line of revolutionary watches called Swatch Sistem51 which is 100 percent Swiss made and features a 3Hz movement and a 90 hour power reserve in a hermetically sealed case.
The Swatch Sistem51 can either be wound or left to self wind when worn on the wrist and is equipped with a revolutionary mechanical movement with only 51 parts in five modules, says Swatch.
The new Swatch Sistem51 watches are available in either blue, red, white or black and their design is made up of 17 pending patents. However when it comes to smartwatches Swatch is quite happy to bide its time and wait to see whether anyone actually wants to buy them. Swatch Group AG (UHR) Chief Executive Officer Nick Hayek explains :
“You won’t see us participating in a race of who’s going to introduce what first,” -“There’s still big resistance from the consumer, so we’re going to wait.”
The new Swatch Sistem51 range of watches started shipping in small limited quantities last year, but now Swatch is gearing up to push the new range out to stores worldwide.
Enabling anyone to be able to purchase the watch and its new revolutionary mechanical movement for below $200. For more information on the new Swatch Sistem51 watch jump over to the Swatch website for details.
