    I, unfortunately, own a failed Sistem 51 watch. It sat in my watch box longer than on my wrist as I wear different watches all the time. If i have to estimate, I probably wore this watch continuously for about 8~12 months. I discovered one day that it had stopped working. I tried contacting Swatch but they refused to deal with me as it is out of warranty. I'm very disappointed with this watch. This is the only failed mechanical watch in my decent mechanical watch collection. If you're a potential buyer and you're reading this, stay far away from Sistem 51. It is a total waste of money. You're better off getting a Seiko 5, an Invicta with Japanese movement, or an Orient, which also use their in-house movement. I own a few other Swatch Irony with automatic movements. They all seem to work fine. However, I'm done with Swatch after the Sistem 51 experience.

    It cost you less that $200. Did you really think you were buying quality? They're designed to be quirky, disposable, accessories to your outfit. Not a quality time piece... I can't believe you didn't know this...

    Why would you even bother to review such a cheap watch? Reviews only matter on quality items. Quality costs money. No one buys a watch for $200 and thinks it will be good. Well, idiots do....

    What a fantastic review. The fact that you cannot repair it and just have to dump it. The 3 year review from Singapore shows how the watch just stops working : jpgo.info/bideo/ZZVpz6apqWWmupI.html.

    I have the Sistem 51 irony. Stainless steel case. The metal case became available in late 2016. These ironies you can replace the unit. Hermetically sealed movements are not that new and robotic or automaton assembly is not that new either.

    It's a modern interpretation of the TIMEX mechanical watch from the 60s which was also unserviceable, except the TIMEX was $10 ($89 today, inflation adjusted). You can buy one hell of a Chinese watch for $200, or better yet, a Vostok for $50.

    I came here, because some ''watch expect'' told me about how good these watches are because they have 90 hour power reserve and their ''special and innovative'' mechanism are keeping -+10 sec a day and I had to look this up, because if a 120$ watch have all of that and if it's that good then I must be a complete idiot for spending hundreds of $ on watches that have less power reserve and have the same accuracy and in some cases a little bit worst. Like they say, if it's too good to be true...... Awesome review, I hope it helps others like me that were interested in this watch.

    I am extremely disapointed by Swatch as a whole. I remember very well that my dad, who was an avid watch collector back in the days (and still own a few incredible pieces, including a Swiss System-Cartier watch with the rectangular curved dial - good luck finding a crystal for that...!) told me that Swatch was the best watch brand for the money. I really think it was, back in the days. So when I first arrived to New York City, the first thing I did? I got into the Swatch store and bough myself a NY city limited edition Swatch. One of the biggest thing about this particular model is the strap, which features the city's skyline in stunning white ink over the black material of the strap. Which material is probably the cheapest shit I have ever hold in my hands. One of the part of this beautiful custom band, justifying a 30$ increase in the price of the regular model, broke in half. I was sad, but I thought - being a total newbie - that I would have a go at replacing the strap and keep the watch which, after all, was the most important part : a solid timekeeper. Well, guess I was wrong : Swatch is the only watchmaker on the planet with a proprietary strap design, not a Nato nor w tradition two-pieces. So I couldn't replace the strap. I don't know where the fuck the watch is no more. My dad bough me a beautiful Casio with a quartz movement and it's still my daily-driver. Now I tend to shop for watches that are not so well known, such as Manfred Cracco and Martenero (looking at their fantastic new diver which is one of the most beautiful and functional diver I've seen, and it costs less than 400$ with 200m resistance and top notch finishing job through and through, proving again the power of marketing). I also own a chinese Amitron Pro sport instalight. It is one reliable watch. I love the fact you can push a button and the entire dial lit up for a few seconds. It is discreet and actually more luxurious that the big, bold, in-you-face tacky luminescent hands and numerals that you find on a lot of high-end divers. Also, what's up with sizes??! No one have the wrist to wear a 50mm watch for hell's sake. I now buy "women" watches because anything else feels like a portable clock. Having said that, I am still looking for Nautec No limit watches - you know, THE chinese brand which took everyone by storm with their stunningly beautiful and affordable divers? I want one, but seems like they've been shut down by the industry's giants. It sucks. I'll stick to Casio, Citizen eco-drive and Amitron for daily drivers, and Manfred Cracco and Martenero for dress watches. Also I just found a Cartier copy by Guess which looks and performs the same for 20 bucks. The watch industry became one big hoax and that's sad.

    Do not bother with the sistem 51. They look great but the movements are absolute junk. Mine is 3 years old the power reserve is below 10 hours and it sometimes even stops on the wrist. Once it's out of warranty it will start to fail. Piss poor when swatch claimed the movement should last 20 years.

    My wife collects Swatch watches, but only has those made in the 80s, and some made in the early 90s. One of hers is an Irony automatic that she wears daily, which has an 80s dial (face), a lightning bolt minute hand, and the seconds hand is changed as well. The model that her custom is made from is called Flumotions. The case of it broke when she tried to change the band--that part that holds the band broke. She sent it off to a guy who built her Irony, and it's a great looking watch. She's had it for 7 years now. The Sistem 51 she was not interested in, since it isn't repairable. I was going to get her one for her birthday a couple of years ago. I got her a vintage 80s one that she didn't have. And that one works fine, as all of hers do. She has 47 Swatches.

    Here are some reasons I, as a non-watch collector or fanatic, bought a system 51. I really hate smart watches - I have too much technology already I love the idea of having a purely mechanic device on my wrist that could keep running for a long time. I love the sound. And I hate replacing batteries in my previous watches. It was such a pain in the ass and watch repairers never would re-seal the watch properly. Meaning Id get moisture in my watches when swimming. It would also cost too much. I love that it's automatic, uncomplicated and sounds nice. If it stops and I have to replace the whole thing outside of warranty, that would be a great time to look for another cool watch :) In other words: it's simple, cheap, fun and a good intro to automatic watches for me :)

    but ALL mechanical watches do that. You can buy a seiko 5 automatic for less than $100. Not only that, but you can actually CHANGE the straps on the seiko. And it'll come with mineral glass (hardlex) vs the plastic scratch-magnet of the Swatch. Seiko was actually THE japanese company that forced the creation of Swatch by the swiss watch makers.

  40. Supertomiman

    Supertomiman6 ヶ月 前

    Here's the thing, most of the cheaper Seikos are made in Malaysia, the ultimate cost cutting measure. But in spite of that nobody thinks of them as Malayan watches, they're universally regarded as Japanese watches. And as for the ones actually made in Japan, nobody can attest what % of the watch is actually Japanese. That's why the Swiss can't compete with them on level ground.

    Yes, it's held together with a single screw (note that the screw does nothing but hold the winding rotor), but keep in mind that the entire movement is riveted together quite poorly. The Sistem51 Irony is not sealed together and can be serviced, but it still has the plastic pallet fork.

    My first and last swatch was a '1996 Aquachrono swatch watch Red Snapper SBM105 '. It was a gift from a family member. I lost it in 2002 during one of my sea trips when the flex metal/resin band broke, probaby due to age. Its really heartbreaking then. I would not recommend buying a swatch for everyday use especially at sea. I guess my Seiko SKX wins hands down in this situation

    If you complain about the cost, then you may as well buy a quartz Swatch. You could even argue that the quartz models look better because they’re thinner. This system51 watch will obviously cost more than other affordable mechanical watches which are assembled from generic parts.

  57. 72duvla

    I personally prefer the look of the most of the Sistem51 to any of the cheaper Seiko or Orient series (Snowflake is not in this league, of course), and don't mind paying a little extra just to have something I like on my hand, but that is up to everyone's taste, isn't it? You did make a great review, but you deliberately trashed the watch from the beginning, forgeting some of the good things about it, it is really more accurate then most cheap Seikos and the 90 hours (in reality more like 70) power reserve is not normally found for 160 euros...

    Exactly I have the sistem chic it's now 3 years old. I brought one purely out of impulse. When I got to take a closer look I was shocked at the plastic escapement and the fact the balance wheel cannot be regulated as it's done by laser in the factory. Obviously it being sealed would prevent regulation anyway. The single screw holding the entire watch together false by the way. Its actually soldered/welded together the screw holds the rotar on. Cheap crap sold with a huge mark up. I love the quartz swatches and the eta fitted irony models (uncle charly body and soul etc) but these sistem 51s are absolute shite being sold to unsuspecting hipsters.

    What do you mean that it is a Chinese watch at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="197">3:17</a>? It is made in Switzerland, so it’s not a Chinese watch get it? And why do you have to bring up the nationality when you are just trying to make the point there are 2 ways of looking at it, one is that it is made with good quality, one it is cheaply made? In fact, you get what you paid for, there is no such thing as poor quality stereotype in Chinese product nowadays, you look at Xiaomi, Huawei, Seagull and Geya, which are just a tip of the iceberg of Company (the later 2 are watch company) owned by China and made in China which are of some of the most superior quality in the world. The point here is you should stop spreading and imposing such biased, false and racist opinion on JPgo community or on anyone.

  89. Marc Yaptinchay

    Marc Yaptinchay年 前

    The problem is that a lot of Chinese products have bad QC and some are notorious for cutting so much that it affects functionality . And for a known watch brand like Swatch and with it's reputation will have more stringent QC . Does it cost cut ........yes , just like a Toyota rehashing old tech or platforms but asking modern prices for new cars but in the end is very reliable (basically everyone in more than one way cuts cost). The watch is made to introduce mechanical watches to the younger generation , a generation that is most likely to buy a quartz or smart watch. This watch will help the whole industry and not only the watch brands under the Swatch group. IMHO there will be a time when mechanical watches will enter another crisis as more and more younger buyers buy quartz or smart watches. This watch will either prolong that time or soften the blow in the future.

  90. Marc Yaptinchay

    Marc Yaptinchay年 前

    @Watch Geek Swatch was the watch to have during my time . Don't get me wrong having a sealed disposable watch is weird , but this might not be weird for some as this is more of a starter watch and should not be taken too seriously. Yes quartz has less moving parts and less chances of breaking (like traditional computer hard drives vs static drives) . But for what it is, being sealed is not a problem for me as it is more of a serous toy "like" gadget than a serous watch . Maybe they initially used this design because the repair (if not under warranty) might cost almost as much as a new one. Maybe Swatch realized or have been getting reports of more watches crapping out more than expected and replacing them under warranty is costing them more and is better to leave a caseback for repairs. Will never know what's in the mind of their execs . But putting a caseback will add more problems too as these watches will be bashed around and with the type of watch it is, adding a caseback is adding a fail point for moisture to get in unlike a sealed case . But again i do not know their business so all i can do is guess.

  91. Watch Geek

    Watch Geek年 前

    Quartz swatches are A LOT more reliable than any mechanical watch as quartz simply is, by construction, a lot more reliable, so not being able to open a quartz swatch is ok, but mechanical watches are much more complicated and sensitive and THAT is why a sealed case that can't be open is a bad idea. But there are now models of swatch 51 that come with the screw caseback

  92. Marc Yaptinchay

    Marc Yaptinchay年 前

    @Watch Geek There will always be duds (my high horology watch stopped after a few months, good thing it was under warranty) 2 friends of mine had theirs brought in under warranty too (AP, and a Patek) . Don't these have warranties? If not then that would be a problem and would damage their reputation. I seriously would not get a Chinese watch (the way they do business now). If this was a bet i would put my money on the swiss (because they have more to lose) , and as much as possible at my age i would not want to buy headaches. When my kids get a bit older i will be getting them one of these or a seiko (depends how responsible they are), not as just a gift but also a learning tool as my watches will go to them eventually. If i remember correctly my Swatch could not be opened too ....i think. Just a latch for changing batteries. But this is just me and how i see it.

  93. Watch Geek

    The problem is that this is NOT RELIABLE, and unlike a Chinese mechanical watch that CAN get repaired even 20 times in 20 years, this CAN'T. The watch in the video is not even 2 years old and it stops after a few seconds. It might be a simple fix but we'll never know, as you CAN'T open it. This watch is as disposable as a watch can get, but unlike the disposable quartz Swatches, this is not as reliable nor as cheap. If ONLY THEY GAVE IT A CASEBACK THAT CAN OPEN, I would love the watch

    Imagine this at $50, a serious no-brainer.

    actually a 50 to 100$ world wide price would be perfect for this watch. Great for automatic and also a replaceble product when stops working.

    As much as I love swatch, there’s no way around it that this idea is brilliantly stupid. Sure, the watch will be permanently sealed which, if not being a lemon, will prevent contaminants. On the other hand, it’s a throwaway mechanical watch... now if one wants a throwaway, would they buy a quartz or mechanical watch? Heck, even a quartz watch can be a heirloom item, because you can FRICKING MAINTAIN THEM!

    That being said, it’s worth investing in a few of them and never use them as a piece of horological history.

    I wish this watch was like $80. I like the unique look of it but spending $150-200 on something that to most people looks like a child's toy is just too much.

    The dial itself reveals little secrets, in fact on the dial represents the Pleiades star cluster, visible from the constellation Taurus, which counts 51 stars, as well as the movement has only 51 members,

    $150 is too much. This watch should have been priced at $49.95
