The Watch

Since 2016 Hodinkee has worked with Swatch to create fun and affordable pieces, highlighting Swatch Group's involvement in the revival of the Swiss watch industry. The Swatch Sistem51 Hodinkee Generation 1986 reflects the pop culture of its day, with events in 1986  like Crocodile Dundee, Aliens, Platoon showing in cinemas, and pop idols like The Police, Billy Joel, Simply Red, Madonna playing in the charts. At this time, Swatch could be seen on many teenagers ‘/young adults' wrists with the likes of The Serpent, The Emerald Diver, The Classic, Vasily.  With this in mind, Hodinkee worked with Swatch to create their interpretation. Using The Emerald diver as their base, they removed the green case and replaced it with a more versatile black one.  A much more prominent bezel is used. Outer minute track, lumed circles, and red rectangles and triangles to indicate the hours. Slim baton hands and a date window at 6 o’clock. On the reverse of the hermetically sealed case, you find Automatic Swatch Sistem51, which caused a storm at Baselworld back in 2013. It is completely machine built and uses a streamlined 51 component movement, an interesting bi-directional peripheral rotor in black along with black & grey with interlocking “H” detailing across the backplate. 19 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour. It has an incredible 90-hour power reserve. The watch comes fitted on a Swatch integrated 24mm silicone strap.
