Women's Watches Reimagined

$27,076

I’m Axelle, the founder and creator of Tulipe Noire Watches for Women. Tulipe Noire is a rare deep purple tulip, and is my inspiration for a unique women’s watch collection that’s mechanical, limited, and always sprinkled with genuine diamonds.  

I’m a watch designer and gemologist with a dream. While I have created many collections for famous brands and fashion houses, I’ve always wanted to design a collection, truly feminine, that doesn’t look like a copy, a piece of dainty jewelry doubling as a watch, or a takedown of a men’s timepiece.   

With Tulipe Noire, I created every piece in the collection to ensure each detail was exactly what I wanted in a watch.  

I have completed all my design work. I have reviewed the samples, and paid for them.   All models are set for production with trusted and proven factories who are ready to begin producing.   

Thanks to your support in achieving the funding goal, the first production run of Tulipe Noire watches for women has started.

As many of you know from your own social media experiences, sharing and exposure is the best and sometimes only way to get traction on a story or cause we passionately believe in. 

And, as we know, crowd-funding success stories work in the same way. Crowd-funding allows participation in being a part of bringing someone’s dreams and passion to life. So please visit our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and web pages. Please share and tag us – @tulipenoire.co, #tulipenoire on your social media platforms with your friends and family and tell them what we are trying to do with Tulipe Noire. 

We will be on the lookout for the lucky few who shared our project the most…with a special surprise for them when we become fully funded. This campaign is about you, our customer, our backer. I am only one person hoping to make a difference by creating a brand that thinks about women’s tastes, differently. But, at the end of the day, our backers are our most valuable intangible asset, as only they will bring this dream to life. I’m doing this because I passionately believe that in creating Tulipe Noire, we continue to think about everyone’s needs and desires along the way. It’s been a fun journey so far and I hope we can have some fun together along the way. Now, I ask you to join me in bringing this dream to life.

Risks and challenges

While I have completed all my design work and all models are set for production with trusted and proven manufacturers there are always possible risks in the supply chain, most notably delivery dates. However, I see this as minimal as I have already secured delivery contracts for the most important components of our watches: our movements, diamonds, cases,…
My only other risk is funding the project. While I have also put my own investment into Tulipe Noire, it’s you, our backers that will be the tipping point and bring this dream to life. If we make and exceed our goal, you will be rewarded with the incentive you picked. The risk of not being funded will result in not being able to deliver the reward we offered for your pledge. So, it’s even more important that you share and tag us on your social media platforms and spread the news and help make Tulipe Noire a huge success!

Thank you so much.
Axelle
