After requests by many of our backers we are proud to announce that we have made the winder-box upgrade available to all backers. This is an upgrade to the original wood box. The winder keeps your watch fully wound whenever it's not on your wrist and is the perfect way to showcase your Vincero. For details on how to upgrade please refer to Update #6.

Welcome to Vincero (Vin-Chair-0) - A small batch, limited release watch company. We develop luxury mechanical timepieces inspired by timeless events in the past and deliver them direct to the customer.

Here at Vincero we believe a watch should mean more than the name on the dial or the price tag attached to it. 

The fact is there are already so many unique and amazing timepieces out on the market. However, the problem is the lack of small production mechanical watches that are actually affordable. It's time you can own a truly unique watch at a reasonable price.

Because we believe a watch should do more than just tell time, all of our watches are inspired by timeless events of the past.

For inspiration on this first line, we went all the way back to the Roman Empire - An empire that truly changed the course of time. Many of their monuments still stand and their stories are still told.

The Vincero Marble Collection was developed with the same luxurious marble that was used to build some of the greatest monuments of Rome.  This marble was also a favorite of many artists during the Renaissance including the great Michelangelo for the famous 'Statue of David'.  

The Carrara

The Rosso

The Nero

                                                

Each Vincero Watch is packaged in a luxury wooden box that features marble accents like the watch it showcases. We believe a watch box is so much more than just packaging. It deserves the same quality standards as the watch itself. The interior of our box is leather and it comes with a certificate of authenticity for each watch. 

Our name is derived from the famous saying of Julius Caesar, "Veni, Vidi, Vici" which means "I came, I saw, I conquered.  Vincero literally means "to win" or "to conquer" in Latin. 

It's our mission to provide every man the opportunity to own a hand crafted watch produced with the highest quality components, without making him regret the price he paid for it (Or didn't pay ~ thanks ladies ;)

In order to accomplish this, we needed to control both the manufacturing and the supply side of the business, which we have done. When this model is paired with a company wide focus on value we are able to offer our collection at an extreme bargain to the end consumers. 

It's these things combined that allow us to develop Limited Edition watches, remove all unnecessary mark-ups and offer them at 50% OFF of market value.

We are a team of watch manufacturers. As a company, our competitive advantage lies on the supply side of the watch industry. Over the past handful of years we have personally overseen the production and quality control for thousands of watches.

We have personal relationships with some of the largest and best suppliers in the industry. This has given us a tremendous amount of insight into the production aspect of watch making. Our focus is quality control. Strict quality control is what differentiates most watch brands. For the longest time it has been our job to oversee this aspect of development for these other brands.

Vincero is us taking the next step. Bringing our experience full circle from the manufacturing of watches all the way through to the distribution. 

Risks and challenges

As you know by now manufacturing watches is our background. We have strong relationships with some of the highest quality facilities in the industry. We know these businesses on a personal level and have been working with them for years.

We understand that obstacles come with every project. We also know what obstacles to expect during the manufacturing process because we have encountered most of these problems with previous projects. In the event that we do experience production delays we are fully prepared to keep you updated every step of the way.

In the past we have had to report directly to other large watch brands and our business depended on our ability to keep smooth communication channels. Our clients/customers are at the core of what we do.

Shipping - Shipping is one of the largest challenges with any project like this because it's one of the only aspects that we don't directly control. Shipping companies can make mistakes from time to time especially when packages are traveling across borders. However, we also understand that if a problem does present itself it's our duty to work with the shipping companies until you receive your watch.

We will not leave you hanging. We don't work directly with the shipping companies, and we are not shipping watches from our homes. We work directly with a shipping agent who has over 10 years experience in shipping ecommerce products. We have personally been working with this agent for two years.
