To celebrate its 30th birthday, Famous Swiss watch maker Swatch, has launched an automatic mechanical watch movement with exactly 51 components, exactly the same number they used to build their very first watch.

Swatch-Sistem51-3

The 51 components are secured by a single screw

Named the Sistem51, this watch seems ironically simple. But behind simplicity, the company’s innovation and expertise is astonishing.  The watch, entirely assembled by robots, features an  hermetically sealed case (meaning  the mechanism will never need maintenance), but its main particularityand the technical prowess is one single screw holds all the 51 parts together.  The result is one of the most geeky, simple yet impressive wearable tech!
