How Much Longer do I Have to Wait for a Wonderful Self-Winding Swatch?

By Mario Aguilar on at

It has been nearly a year since Swatch announced it's innovative Sistem51 watch. It's a self-winding timepiece that has only has 51 parts. Forget smartwatches, get this simple dumbness on my wrist right now.

Every so often I take a 10 minute stroll from our offices to the nearby Swatch store. And every time I go, I'm told the same thing: a few more months! Currently, you can only purchase the Sistem51 in Switzerland. I'm hearing that maybe it will be released more widely this Spring? And that the price tag won't destroy my wallet? Please Swatch?
