Silver & Black - The time is telling by the silver-tone luminated hands. Circular case in polished silver-tone with rounded bezel in sandblasted black tone equipped with black genuine leather strap with tone on tone stitching/ black Milanese Strap.
Human have used constellations for thousands of years for a variety of reasons. And these reasons have changed throughout history. In agriculture, constellations made the patterns of the stars could help determine when the seasons were coming before the birth of calendars and watches. Constellations also helped navigators and explorers to find their way across the planet while keeping track of the time.
Celebrating 50 years since man set foot on the moon, a milestone in space exploration. NORNIR introduces the first tourbillon project, the “Celestial collection” to all watch addicts! Our designer curates this authentic collection by translating the space constellation essence into grand modern design with historical craftsmanship and inexhaustible creativity. The time-tested automatic co- axial multi-function tourbillon movement at its core, coupled with grand modern designs with well-proportioned cases and sapphire crystal mirror. We also offer interchangeable genuine Italian calf leather and milanese strap for you to choose.
We are offering directly via Kickstarter, we are able to cut out the retail channel, middlemen markups, brand exclusivity/scarcity, and offer a US 599 automatic multi-function tourbillon watch with the most premium materials and grand modern design watch.
Seriously, try to find a better watch for a better price, and we’ll match it.
Welcome to our 11th Kickstarter Campaign!
LENVINO Watch Co. was started in 2017 Jan, a group of watch-addicts with the passion and constancy of the traditional watch craftsmanship. We believe that the most timeless and desirable timepiece must be the traditional one. We would like to awaken people’s mind about the core function of a watch, thus create our brands.
In 2017 Dec LENVINO Watch Co. launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the World’s First Minimalist Design Rectangular Tourbillon Watch. After 40 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 427,860. The result is the most backed tourbillon project on Kickstarter history that year. In 2018 April, we returns to Kickstarter to launch our second project “US$149 Japan Automatic Vintage Racing Watch”. After 30 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 1,344,752. It was such a great success and surprise result for us.
Since then we’ve launched 11 projects on Kickstarter and totally funded over 3 Million worldwide. All products are successfully delivered to the backers and received positive comments.
With the passion of the previous projects. We returns to Kickstarter to introduce the new project to you, the first tourbillon project of our sub-brand NORNIR, the “Celestial Collection”
“NORNIR” in Norse mythology are three gods’ beings who rule the destiny of human.The watches are designed in a space-constellation thematic style to reflect this powerful brand name. We strive to create luxury timepieces by combining historical craftsmanship and and inexhaustible creativity to all watch-addicts.
Initially, NORNIR “Celestial Collection” will offer you 4 color combinations for you to choose from. All watches are equipped with an automatic multi-function co-axial tourbillon movement and sapphire crystal.
You will be able to choose the strap or milanese version after the campaign conclusion.

To differentiate the design from huge luxury watches that are going out in same, our designer draw inspiration from the aesthetics of space constellations while still emphasizing traditional watch craftsmanship.
Stars Pattern Skeletonized Dial Ref
The distinctive dial structure places emphasis on a star-pattern motif on the bridge in the front and on the use of skeletonization to bring out the inner nuances of the finely made, engine-turned “Perlage Manuelle” pattern on the main plate of the tourbillon movement.
The Co-axial tourbillon mechanism is floating at 6 o’ clocks on the dial and surrounded by a brightness and sharpness metal edge completes one revolution every minute. The day & night and 24 hours indicators are relegated to recessed sub-dials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, respectively
The time is displayed by the Syringe Hands and painted with Super-LumiNova, large and legible enough for ease of time reading in the dark.
In the NORNIR “Celestial collection” features a well proportional case with curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a flatted sapphire crystal on the front and a screw-down exhibition case back with a vintage telescope-printed pattern, allowing you to enjoy every motion of the movement.
Viewed from the side, the curved bezel ring joins the case back flawlessly through a mirror polishing surface. The streamlined case is more than just an elegant design feature – it also allows for a slimmer profile.
The case that houses it is a very wearable 42 mm-wide and 14.5mm at its highest point. It is water resistant to 50 meters. The metal parts are made from 316L stainless steel, which translates to greater corrosion resistance and durability in high temperatures.
Our interchangeable watch straps are made from genuine Italian calf leather. The strap will also come with the polished 316L stainless steel buckles and engraved with our brand name “NORNIR”. The straps have a width of 20mm x 18 mm for gents, a unisex functional length suitable for most customers, and 9 holes for adjustment. The wristband contains a quick release spring bar, so that the straps can be swapped in seconds without the need for special tools.
They are available in two different colors (1) Brown, (2) Onion Blue, (3) Navy Green and (4) Black
Our Milanese straps are made from 316L stainless steel and come with an adjustable buckle which can be adjusted for every wrist size and engraved with our brand name “NORNIR”. If you selected the Milanese straps, the plating color will be same as your watch case color.
They are available in three different plating colors: (1) Silver, (2) Gold tone and (3) Black tone
The NORNIR "Celestail Collection" in powered by the HZ 3C10 Automatic Coaxial Multi Function Tourbillon Movement, with a 24 hours and day & night indicator functions, power reserve of approx. 40 hours and mechanisms gleam with 25 jewels as it vibrates at 28,800 beats per hour. Its providing accurate and reliable time-keeping functionality to this collection.
We believe that luxury timepieces should be exclusive and unique. Therefore, the first 50 pieces of each design variant of Rewards #1,#2,#3,#4 will be initial Edition and individually numbered. The watches will come engraved with “N’ xx/50” wording on the caseback.
Remarks: Please note that your Backer number may not correspond with the watch number you will receive, since every backer may have the right to change / give up the reward before the project end.
We will confirm your unique number with you once the campaign has finished. NORNIR "Celestial Collection" produced after the first 50pcs of each design variant will not be individually numbered.
We believe that a high quality, exclusive, well-designed watch should come in premium packaging. You will feel satisfied when you receive your order.
1. Hand Sketch and Concept Generation Process
At the first step of the product development procedure is the hand sketch and concept generation process. After the marketing research, we targeted to design a traditional watch which are combined with the space constellation aesthetics and historical watch craftsmanship.
2. Graphic Design Process
After the hand sketch and concept generation process, our designer using the most popular graphic design software (Illustrator) to figure out the watch design and formulate the color combinations of the whole series.
3. Computer Aided Design Process ( 2D Technical Drawing & 3D Modelling)
After confirming all the dimensions from the 2D technical Drawings, we have to go to the 3D computer aided design process by using the 3D modeling and simulation software to build the watch structure in actual dimensions and optimizing the watch structure by using different types of simulation tests e.g. stress test, thermal test and drop test.
4.Rapid-prototyping and Working Prototype
Our manufacturer using the rapid prototyping machine to produce an actual size touchable sample to make sure the watch size and the coordination of each watch parts, it is the most time-efficient and cost-saving way to evaluate all sizes and dimensions.
Confirmed all the dimensions and sizes are correct by our engineering manager. Our manufacturer using the CNC machine to create the stainless steel case sample and produce all watch parts samples e.g. strap, dial and hands then send back to us after assemble to be a working prototype.
5. Prototype Testing
The final stage before starting the Kickstarter campaign is the sample testing. In order to ensure the watches well functioned, our engineering manager will rigorously test all watches, e.g. through air pressure water resistance test, movement winding test and movement timing test etc.
Our partnered manufacturer follows strict procedures to ensure the quality of the watches they produce. Generally, those procedures can be divided into three parts: Technical Control Check, Quality Assurance Check and Final Quality Check.
During the Technical Control Check, a watch engineer will ensure the watches are in the safety structure from the technical drawing to predict and avoid the potential risks.
For the Quality Assurance Check, the QA engineer will ensure that the dimensions of each individual component are 100% identical to the technical drawings and that all components pass the QA test, e.g. drop test and movement test.
For the Final Quality Check, the final QC engineer will rigorously test all watches, e.g. through water resistance and plating tests. In order to ensure the watches well functioned, all should pass the 240 hours burn-in test before dispatching the products to customers.
Select the desired reward option, followed by your shipping destination. Upon conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign, we will send out a survey request where you can indicate your choice of strap (Leather or Milanese strap). At that time, you can also confirm your shipping address and other relevant details with us.
Actually, our watches are offering with a perfect specification and rewards package in this price range. We still thinking about this issue. Will have an updated soon.
We will ship the watches worldwide. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable in your region.
We expect to ship the orders from Dec 2019. While we will make every effort to ship your orders on time, we ask for your understanding that slight delays in production may be possible. We will keep you informed of any changes as they arise.
All of our watches will come with a 1 years international warranty. The warranty will cover all parts against manufacturer defects, for which the watch will be repaired or exchanged free of charge.
1. Keep your watch wound. Winding keeps the watch working, spreads the lubricants and the accuracy should be best with a fully wound watch.
2. Please avoid any Bumps and Shocks of the watches. Shocks can damage any watch mechanism, scratches to the case or break the mirror. Remember your watch is a mechanical watch consisted of more than hundreds tiny parts.
3. Cleaning. If your watch has become dirty, the best way to clean it is with a soft damp cloth.
4. 5ATM Water Resistance. Applicable for swimming, washing hands and wind splashing. Diving, showering, bathing, taking a jacuzzi or sauna, or any submersion in deep water whilst wearing your watch should be avoided.
The more details of the watches care and maintenance will mark in the instruction manual and come with your selected watches.
