My dear friend David Rippmann from Zürich just filed me his report about the new Swatch Sistem 51 Irony. He ordered the replica watch last Thursday (the first day you could order one) and got it today.

David, reporting from Zürich …
Today, I received my first Swatch Sistem 51 Irony. After the presentation here on Replica Watch-Insider I was absolutely sold to this new replica watch. As one of the early Swatch Collectors starting 1983 and owning a collection of over 1000 pieces in 2004, I sold most of the replica watches then, as the product policy simply did not match my taste anymore. But since the back-to-the-roots strategy, I started to buy Swatch replica watches again – but this time not for collecting, but for really wearing them alternatively to the luxury replica watches of other brands.
The Swatch Sistem 51 Irony reminds me very much of the first automatic swatch replica watches back in 1991. Classic style, very well made, and yet modern. After having had two plastic Sistem 51, of which I still think that the design is quite „special” and not everybody’s taste, the Irony is definitively a winner. The look is very „luxury“ style, thanks to the heavy steel case and the sunbrush dial. Also the leather strap is of a nice quality. Nothing really reminds of the plastic replica watch, the nice see-through back shows the Sistem51-calibre which is in a more refined style, as you can see from the comparison pictures.
I am curious to see how people will react on this replica watch when I wear it. However, this first Swatch Sistem 51 Irony will for sure not be the last I will buy.
Congratulations, Swatch! Old love never dies.
Thank you David for your report!
