We love reading HODINKEE, the site dedicated to serious watch coverage, but we’d be lying if we said it didn’t feel a tad cost prohibitive. As much as we enjoy reading about them, we can’t afford a huge collection of Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Cartier timepieces. Luckily, the team at HODINKEE saw the opportunity to bring their know-how to a watch that’s accessible to all. The result is the Sistem51 Blue Edition, a contemporary timepiece with simple, old-school elements. It’s fun and playful without being goofy. The hand-drawn numerals on the face are an ode to classic dress watches of the 1940s, so while this Swatch is modern, it’s also rooted in history. The Sistem51 movement is visible through the transparent caseback and is eye-catching in its red, white, and blue pattern. At $150, it’s a steal.
