    Swatch Sistem 51 factory burned down, erm what?

    Hey Gang,

    So I'm downtown San Francisco, and I head straight to the Swatch store, like I have for the last 4 months to see if thy finally have in stock the Sistem 51, and todays reason was a corker:

    The staff said that the factory has "burned down" and it won't be coming until Mar/April in the US, can anyone shed any light on this or was it random excuse day?

    It was "just" a galvanizing building in the ETA campus ... It wasn't an entire plant

    A part of the ETA factory shouldn't give 51 a problem though, right? I thought the entire gig is that it's advanced mechanized production, which presumably means it's in a different manufacturing line from the standard ETA stuff.

    Also, the delayed release dates for the US market had already been announced prior to the fire.

    Indeed. If you plot our arm of the Milky Way in 3D, you'll find that the Sistem 51 jewel placement really is a star chart, of Ursa Major as seen from the aliens' home planet.

    Yea they were just lying to you. The factory fire had nothing to do with anything.
