    How are these watches performing 5 years later? I've read several places that performance declines rather soon (closer to two years rather than 20 years.)

    I bought a NOS blue one with the desire to test it out, but I find, after two weeks, I cannot get used to the cluttered dial. Selling mine on the ‘bay. I’ll try out one of their Irony models instead.

    Nice looking junk is still junk. Ignore the regurgitated sales patter in the OP review. They are hopelessly innacurate, non-hacking, overpriced dog shit. The minute hand jumps when the crown is pushed in so it’s impossible to set the time accurately.The plastic cover attracts scratches like crazy. Worst of all, they are sealed cases so they can’t be repaired or serviced. Seiko-5 watches are vastly superior in every way and cheaper. Orient watches are also better.

    this is worse than chinese watches. you can't repair this watch because the caseback is sealed. if something is wrong with it, you are expected tothrow away this $150 watch. what a joke!

    Very expensive junk, bought 2 of these, both not working after less than 2 yrs. Do not buy unless you just want to add it to your collection.

    Your excellent review finally convinced me to NOT waste my money on an irresponsibly disposable piece of plastic. It being in a large rotation of watches means even it’s best feature, 90 hour reserve does nothing for me.

    Do you hear this ticking as you wear it? Thank you

    In a quite room you can hear it as far as 10-15 cm from your ear. Definately not so loud as a Timex....but on a normal night you can put it beside your will not be disturbed by it imho.

    I think these watches would be OK if they cost around 80 USD. First of all they are plastic, plastic looks cheap. Second, they are sealed, meaning once the movement breaks the watch can be thrown away as it's now worthless. Third, they are very inaccurate, if you are lucky it is +/- 10 seconds, but +/- 40 seconds a day is not unheard of. The movement can't be regulated either, so you are stuck with the inaccuracy for good. For around 200 dollars you can buy automatic Seiko and Orient watches, that are stainless steel, they look much more classy and expensive, they are serviceable, meaning theoretically they can go for hundreds of years with proper maintenance, and they are more accurate as well (+/- 5 seconds or less) Also they can be regulated in a matter of minutes to make them more accurate over time. I would never spend my money on this mass produced plastic Swatch when there are much better alternatives out there for a similar price.

    The advertisement says that it is 100% Swiss made, but I'm really sure that according to the "laws", 50% and more of the components in the watch are from Swiss then it would technically "Swiss made", no matter if the rest are from an unknown sweatshop in northern china.

    Unfortunately, my sistem51 runs extremely inaccurately. Now for me it isn't the biggest deal since I have other watches, but I am reluctant to wear it is it often runs over a minute slow a day and is not reliable. It is a cool idea and I bought one for that reason, but I would NOT recommend it as your "daily wearer".

    Would it be “basically crap” if it was in a metal case with the ability to “service” the watch replace the movement...guess what?You can buy them that way now.

    I took it into swatch who polished the crystal for free. I now drop in to the shop when it gets a scratch problem is I always end up buying another lol just got the Sistem Irony Boreal.

    I agree. Unfortunately, all Swatch "crystals" are plastic and if you bang them against anything metal you're in trouble.

    To remove scratches from Swatch plastic crystals all you need is a tube of Poly Watch Plastic Crystal Glass Polish & Scratch Remover for about $10. It will remove all scratches and make it look new.

    With 300 bux- $40 Casio MDV 106 and a Seiko SKX 009 for 250$. Casio is a quartz but good classic and reliable nonetheless.

    For 300 hmmm? Vostok (Russian in-house movement) or Seiko SKX007j1 or Flightmasters SNA411p1 or SNA413p1

    I was considering to buy this or a Seiko 5, chose the latter one. Even though I am a big fan of swatch, and use a irony scuba 200 for the past 14 years, the plastic in this watch didn´t convince me. Thanks for the review!

  45. Malik Martin

    Check out the SEIKO 5 SPORTS SNZH57 from Amazon at 135 bux. It has a unidirectional bezel, hardlex crystal, display case, 100M rating, its metal, straps are interchangeable and the watch can be customized to look like a FFF and is serviceable/repairable. Its too much watch for the money the swatch can't even come close.

    For Anti-magnetic balance wheel and escapement, read plastic. The fabled centre screw that holds everything together just holds the rotor on. This watch would be fine if it where cheaper - there's a lot of plastic involved and its machine assembled. A Seiko 5 can be had for half the price with metal case, metal balance wheel/escapement, a standard strap that can be changed, a mineral crystal. It can be also be serviced

    The movement is interesting, I just wish they at least stuck it in a metal chassis, if even $20 wal-mart watches can manage that.

    I use the Swatch Sistem51 every day from 8 to 10 hours per day. On every 24 hours the watch he stops. I try to use manual winding maybe 20 winding plus 8-10 hours per day on my hand and I have the same problem, the watch he stops on every 24 hours. Can anyone tell me what should i do?

    return it. it should have come with 2 year warranty if you bought it at an authorized dealer. mine has been losing 5-15 minutes a day, going to return it for a new one.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="277">4:37</a> I was looking at them in a Swatch shop in two different occasions. Very tempted, but decided not to buy one because I don't like the dial design. It is also very difficult to tell the time. I know I would find it annoying to use.

  62. Tomasina Covell

    Wrong, I think they started out with cheap mechanical designer watches in the 80's, then switched to quartz movements after that.

    Even if you could get it repaired or regulated, at $150 would it be worth it to throw down $50 for a repair?
