    Sistem51 rollout

    I just found out that the new Swatch store in Indianapolis will be launching the Sistem51 this coming Wednesday. Sounds like they're finally trickling down to the rest of the country this month. Guess I know where I'm going to go after work on Wednesday!

    Was thinking of getting blue but my wife thinks I should get red since I already have blue-dialed (but not cased) watches. Any strong opinions about the best color?

    Blue is the one true Sistem51 color and all others should be found, thrown into a pile in the town square, and burned. The watches, and the people that wear them!

    Actually, the red is pretty nice too. But I'd still go blue.

    Long live Watchuseek. You asked for a "strong opinion" and you got one.

    The blue Sistem51 is probably the most Swatch-like, and that's the reason why it's the main design that is featured in most of the Sistem51 advertising. The black Sistem51 is the most atypical of a Swatch, and is the choice of a person who likes the Sistem51, but doesn't really like Swatches. The white Sistem51 is quite quirky and fun, and might be a good choice for a summer watch.

    Got mine in Miami early this last week, so they are out already.

    Looking at the Swatch website, they are only in a handful of major metropolitan areas. I think it's strange that they would be sold online before being available in Swatch stores outside the major coastal cities.
