Let it realize
STAGE is a brand with a long term goal. We hope to create a series of watches with extremely affordable retail price and Despite the price of STAGE’s product is not expensive, but all its models are limited edition and only produced once. Every year, we only focus on producing 2-3 models, so as to ensure that the quality of our products is best of the best and to maintain the rare amount of each model. And our first project is Phase One.
The concept of Roman Colosseum
It is the greatest and the most familiar architecture among the world wonders sitting in the center of Rome. View from the top, it has a bowl-shaped design which you can see a hint in many modern designs: such as large football stadium, the interior design of concert hall and so on. The gradient, stereoscopic impression and layering of Phase One's surface are evolved from such design. The outer wall of the Colosseum formed by arches with fine craftsmanship, and we evolve it into the embroidery on the watch surface on top of the calendar disc. We have used a brand new timepiece display in the middle of the Colosseum. The long hand represents the Hour, the circular roulette represents minute, and the triangle on the top represents second. It reflects the spirit of the warriors in the Colosseum who were willing to challenge themselves and break the limit.

Our project has adopted Swiss movement Sellita SW200-1. Nowadays, Sellita has been used by many top-tier brands. We will carry out accurate adjustment to it in order to guarantee that at the time when the watch comes out, the Accuracy will be at an average of within -+6s/d. The watch will also go through a 240-hour examination and accompanied with a test report so as to achieve top brand quality.
*Backers also can upgrade to Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement.
Quick Interchangeable Bezel
We have infiltrated custom-made element in the bezel of the watch. As a breakthrough we have used a quick interchangeable bezel which allows our customers to change the color of the rings themselves at home, thereby highlight their own taste and allow them to wear the watch at different occasions. We hope our watches are not only for telling time, but also can be played by our customers which make them more interesting.
*THE QUICK INTERCHANGEABLE BEZEL ALSO CAN SWAP WITH THE COMING MODEL*
9 hour position iron plate laser engraving service
We offer free laser engraving service of at most 12 English letters on the 9 hour position iron plate of Phase One. If no engraving service is required, the design of “Limited No.” will be applied on the iron plate.
Sapphire Crystal and Calendar magnifying glass
Our watches come with sapphire crystal which can greatly improve its anti-weariness. Moreover, a magnifying glass is also installed to allow our customers to see the date more clearly. Watches without magnifying glass are also available if customers prefer not to have the magnifying glass.
Inspiration of STAGE
STAGE is a stage of time, a stage of history of everything, and the different stages of evolution.
Using a variety of historical footprints left behind, with modern design to express in the timepiece inside. STAGE contains five elements:
The first element of our brand is strong personality. We insist each of our project will only produce once with limited pieces. We do not want to scrape the barrel. Each of our model will be infiltrated with custom made elements to turn the watch into a personalized product.
We will keep producing new models with an aim to maintain its rareness and also let customers with different tastes of design can buy their own favourite piece from our brand. Each piece of watch will undergo a 240-hour examination before coming out from the factory, and we insist that we will ensure our watches has achieved a very precise quality before delivery.
STAGE has a great determination and insist to produce watches which are extremely excellent from its design to the precision of its movement. The most important thing is that we will control the retail price of each timepiece to USD 1200 or less, hoping to provide the best quality and the most affordable price for our customer to buy their favorite watch.
Clear visual is one of the most important topics in the design, therefore we apply geometric lines and stereo perception to create every piece of our watches to provide the greatest visual design to our customers.
Regardless of sports or elegant style, each type of our watches has an epochal feeling without losing its elegance, so that customers wearing STAGE can highlight their own personality and taste.
The founders’ philosophy of STAGE
Our team has only two members. Yes, two. However, as compare with certain mid-price big brands or famous independent brand, we have greater passion on watches and stronger insistence on quality. Under the rapid changes and the trend of the recent watch market, both of us has determined to express our own definition of a good watch by establishing a brand.
Evolution of the top-tier watch market
From the peak of the watch industry in 2014 to the present downward momentum, the industry has come to the time for re-positioning. It is believed that this is the most difficult winter after the period from the quartz watch revolution to the early 90s. Under the rapid expansion in the past 10 years, the price of most of the top-tier brand have gone up to a very high level, causing a lot of people deterred from buying watches. The retail price of the brand has gone far beyond the basic elements of a handicraft. In light of the aforesaid, many customers have shifted to buy mid-price brands.
The influence of the mid-price watches
In the recent two years, many mid-price brands has developed rapidly. Due to their cheap prices, they are much easy to get and therefore attracted a lot of attention. However, the risk of such watches is relatively higher as the quality varies among the products.
The rise of crowdfunding
The rise of the great internet crowdfunding brings along a trace of hope of success to those ambitious founders with limited funds. Many brands which are passionate with watches, including us, are given a chance to manufacture their ideal timepieces.
