Hodinkee & Swatch Team Up for a Pair of Summer Watches

Factoryif

The Hodinkee x Swatch joint efforts around the special times of year have become a practice of sorts throughout the most recent couple of years, with the watch media site and Swiss brand known for the sake of entertainment, moderate, and collectable watches presenting to us another Sistem51 every one of the most recent three years. These watches will in general be motivated by vintage plans and exemplary Swatch signs, and will in general be amazingly mainstream, according to the way that they’re frequently hard to find not long after being reported. This year, they’re accomplishing something somewhat unique by presenting another watch directly at the tallness of the summer season, impeccably styled to complement sitting by the pool, hanging out the sea shore, or just for the most part unwinding in the warm summer air. They additionally haven’t halted at only one new watch. Here are the all new Sistem51 Hodinkee Summer Edition, and the Flik Flak Hodinkee Summer Edition.

Let’s hop directly into the Flik Flak, the primary item Hodinkee has at any point made explicitly for youngsters. Obviously, I don’t think anybody anticipates that kids should effectively sign on to the Hodinkee Shop and purchase this all alone. Or maybe, it’s an item for watch devotee guardians to purchase for their kids, filling the double need of showing them how to read a clock, and, maybe, beginning them on the long way to watch fixation. It’s a virtuoso thought, and honestly now that it’s here I’m somewhat shocked it’s taken such a long time, yet here we are. 

The Flik Flak has been around since 1987 and is considered by numerous individuals to be the best children’s look out there. It’s kid measured at 31.85mm in breadth, simple to peruse, worked to withstand stuns, and comes with a game intended to be utilized by guardians to build up time telling abilities with their children. It’s fueled by a quartz development, and is even machine launderable, which is certifiably not a promoted include that I can review seeing on some other watch I’ve had the joy of composing about. 

Moving on to the Sistem51 Summer Edition, the marginally more develop watch in this matching, we have a fresh white interpretation of the “Generation 1986” discharge from this past November. Fall blacks and reds have been traded for a more cheerful white and blue, with similar intense hour markers in round, rectangular, and three-sided shapes. 

As with other Sistem51s, the plastic case is 42mm in breadth and houses a development made altogether through a robotized interaction utilizing only 51 components. The development can be seen through the caseback and has been done with the interlocking “H” for Hodinkee logo. This watch is energetic, lively, and doesn’t pay attention to itself at very, which truly should be the pith of any summer watch. 

While the Flik Flak and Sistem51 have been reported as a couple, they are accessible to buy independently, with Flik Flak selling for $40 and the Sistem51 for $170. In any case, there’s something beguiling about the two of these watches together that is truly engaging, with comparative colorways and a similar simple and easygoing style.

The summer versions of the Flik Flak and Sistem51 seen here can be bought today at the Hodinkee Shop , the Swatch site , and Swatch’s Times Square lead store.
