RISKS AND CHALLENGES

On Kickstarter we are beginners, but, along with our manufacturers, we have about 20 years of experience in the watch industry! Our knowledge is a result of our activities in the watch business as distributor and producer (more than 1 million watches sold).

We are aware creating and delivering a product is a complicated process and sometimes with unexpected delays. Therefore we have selected very carefully only the most skillful and professional suppliers during the last years. We do not anticipate delays in our timeline. Nevertheless we have calculated a one month time buffer.

This project is very complex and there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a reliable production and delivery plan.

Our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products in time. We spent over 2 years designing, developing, drawing and finalizing the project.
If along the way we find that there is a setback in production, or there is a delay somewhere during process in the timeline, we will be transparent and keep all of our backers informed.
Thanks for your support! We are very excited to take the next steps with you and the Kickstarter community!
