When Swatch announced the release of the Sistem51, I was of course very curious about what lurks inside! With these things, there is only one way to find out…
I went ahead and ordered one for £108, and it arrived from Switzerland 3 days later.
Now this watch isn’t usually opened, and there are of course no photos of the inside to be found anywhere, apart from the stuff Swatch releases. Time to change that … Continue reading
John sent in this watch, and they needed a 40 ton lorry to deliver it
This watch is not for the faint-hearted. It weighs in at 152 grams, and that’s quite a lot for a quartz watch. The width including crown and pushers is 51.3mm!
John sent it in, because he can’t get the crown to do what it should do… Continue reading
I wanted to share this watch with you, as the movement has many interesting and well executed features. Wynand sent it in for a service, and I’m happy to oblige… Continue reading
This is my last post before going on holidays for the week, and Mitka has started on his first customer watch as well, which he will finish for me to check over when I get back. After 4 1/2 months, and dozens of his own watches serviced, he is ready to roll!

Eric from Belgium sent in this great Heuer. It’s his fathers’s watch, and I think we can all applaud his taste!
On first sight, the watch is in amazing condition.
What an honour to be part of this year’s top 100! Talya and I attended the evening do in London, and I was very chuffed to be included in this year’s selection.
At least the broadband connection at home works, so I can write a little blog entry about this watch. Tintin from Thailand sent it in, and it’s probably the best UltraChron I’ve seen in this workshop. It’s in almost mint condition…
I love the 431 movement. Fast beating at 36,000 b.p.h, and built with the usual Longines quality. Great design, and I would wear this watch very happily indeed. Continue reading
