Watchmaking is an ever-evolving entity. Some watchmakers choose to stay with the classic stylings of horology while adding in little tweaks here and there. Others choose to completely renovate the look and feel of a watch to bring something exciting and original to the market. And some others, such as Swatch, aim to change their own unique way of making watches entirely. Welcome to the new and improved Sistem51 Irony watch by Swatch.
Known for their plastic watches, Swatch has changed up the Sistem51 watch, making this beautiful timepiece available in timeless, stainless steel. Made in Switzerland, the Sistem51 Irony is composed of only 51 components grouped into five parts and held together by a single screw. Every part of this movement, from the assembly of the parts, the construction of its shape, the stunning, sleek finish, and the regulation of the watch is created solely by machines; a human hand helped put not one piece into place during creation, making it the very first of its kind.
Truly, the biggest change these Swatch watches underwent was the casing. Instead of plastic molded cases, these Irony watches have stainless steel holding them all together. What was once seen as a novelty watch is now a considerable and office-appropriate watch that can be worn in everyday activities, professional or casual.
Bringing home one of your own Swatch Sistem51 Irony watches will be a reality on September 9th of 2016. The prices range from $195.00 to $235.00, depending on the model you choose. To learn more, visit their website.
