But if a leftfield partnership for the subject of today’s post. Quintessential British menswear house Hackett have teamed up with iconic Swiss timepiece brand Swatch.
The Swatch x Hackett Sistem51, has been designed and crafted by Swatch in collaboration with Jeremy Hackett to create an essential gentleman’s accessory. Only 1,983 watches have been produced paying perfect homage to the birth year of both brands, 1983. Sistem51, is a mechanical watch for everyone. It’s made not by hand, but on a fully-automated assembly line.
A tough leather strap is gently hugged by brown and green leather loops which form the letter ‘H’ as well as holding a fierce brushed stainless steel buckle. Jeremy Hackett’s Sussex Spaniel, Muffin, is the star of the sun- brushed green dial with the date window and superluminova hands. The brushed stainless steel case has an engraved bezel, filled in light green.
Jeremy Hackett, Founder and Chairman of Hackett London comments: “Watch this space! I am absolutely thrilled to be collaborating with Swatch to create an exclusive Hackett design for the limited edition range”
