Without question, Swatch‘s Sistem51 has earned its status as one of the most iconic movements in contemporary horology and watchmaking, using just 51 components and just one central screw to construct a fully automatic movement boasting a power reserve of 90 hours and an accuracy of +/- 7 seconds a day — a rate incredibly close to the COSC chronometer requirements of -4/+6 seconds deviation per day. Now, further developing its technology, Swatch has released Sistem51’s first-ever small seconds movement, coming in the form of a new Petite Seconde model.

Available in both a black and blue color options, the new watch utilizes a 42mm stainless steel case holding a segmented and highly textured dial for a playful yet refined aesthetic. As mentioned, the heart of the watch is a new Sistem51 with small seconds at the 6 o’clock position and date complication at 3 o’clock, operating at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 90 hours. A windowed caseback offers wearers a view into the truly magnificent 19-jewel movement, built entirely by machines. Finally, rounding off the watch is a black or blue leather strap seamlessly melding into the case.

For those interested, Swatch’s Sistem51 Petite Seconde is now available over on its website for $215 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Todd Snyder has reunited with Timex to craft a mid-century-inspired Liquor Store timepiece.
