About

  

 

Welcome to NOX-BRIDGE. We are bringing quality to the fashion industry with bespoke features and sophisticated designs. 

 

 

 

 

We strongly believe that high quality goods can still be produced cruelty-free. This sits at the core of our values and we have ensured that the products we create are vegan, including a waterproof vegan leather strap.

 We are a team of watch enthusiasts who are passionate about horology. We always wanted to create a cruel-free luxury watch that would be the first of its kind. Full of bespoke features, the NOX-BRIDGE watch is set to redefine the watch industry. 

Started in 2014

The name NOX-BRIDGE originated from the Latin word Nox, meaning night. The night sky is a source of inspiration for the brand, from its sophisticatedly understated aesthetic, to the more complex realities of the tapestry. We view each NOX-BRIDGE watch as having a timeless elegant design intertwined with intricate, quality features that have never been seen before. The ‘Bridge’ echoes the ideals of connecting two worlds as we fuse the traditional art of horology with contemporary features and quality allure that will be loved by not only fashion followers, but watch critics alike.

NOX-BRIDGE strives for excellence in both what we create and how we create it. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.

NOX ARM: The Nox-Arm is a revolutionary feature that is a first for the watch industry. By delicately moulding the name NOX onto the second hand, a high-quality, semi-automatic movement had to be used. The curved second hand showcases a unique, elegant aesthetic.

Movement: The movement used is a 6-hand semi-automatic with Day-Date-GMT sub-dials and uses up to 4 times the torque of other quartz watches. This technology has only recently been released and NOX-BRIDGE is one of the first to use it. The high-grade Japanese VH Sweep-Second movement allows the second hand to move in ¼-second increments, resembling a mechanical watch, while still maintaining the excellent precision and accuracy of a quartz watch.

Waterproof leather: NOX-BRIDGE has spent months perfecting the technology that goes into making vegan leather waterproof. We understand how important it is for a watch to not only look good, but also provide a practical appeal for longevity and an ease of use. The waterproof leather means that water and sweat won’t soak in as it does in traditional leathers, instead the straps will be easy care allowing for swallow swimming and rain resistance.

Vegan: We strongly believe in caring for animals, so we wanted to create a watch that was cruelty-free. Our watches do not use any animal by-products in the manufacture and our watch straps are made from high-quality vegan leather.

Crown & ring engraving: We use superior tools to ensure that each etching has perfect detailing by reducing the size of our engraving to microscopic dimensions. The intricacies of our engravings set our timepieces apart from others and create an appeal of quality, luxury and high-end workmanship.

Quick release straps: Our straps were created with the consideration of practicality in mind. We wanted to ensure that each NOX-BRIDGE can be adapted to suit each outfit, occasion, and season.

New Zealand design: Our watches have taken years to perfect, being carefully crafted in Auckland, New Zealand by our team of skilled watch designers and engineers.

Japan made: We put a lot of thought into where we wanted our watches to be manufactured and assembled. We decided on Japan because we wanted the best workmanship, quality and finish. Our team of highly-trained watchmakers are experts who construct our designs to perfection.

 Founded in 2014, we are a team of determined New Zealanders aiming to create a watch brand different from the rest, known for it’s high-quality, fashionable designs. All having a keen interest in fashion and seeing a lack of quality and features in the fashion watch industry, we came together to create a sophisticated watch brand that could be enjoyed by both fashion lovers and watch experts. We have a unique combination of backgrounds and expertise, from watchmaking to design and marketing, and we all share a common passion for animal welfare.

We have a great team of experts at NOX-BRIDGE who need your help! The Kickstarter funds will go toward the final manufacture of our NOX collection. We hope that the NOX collection has impressed you, thank you for taking the time to look at our campaign. 

 

 

 

 

                  

 

                     

Risks and challenges

We have already made the order and manufacturing is underway so there are no current foreseen risks and shipping is scheduled to arrive before Christmas. However, we understand that there can be unexpected circumstances so we have contingency plans in place and we have great relationships with our manufacturing and shipping partners to best mitigate any obstacles.

We will be transparent in our communication and ensure that regular updates are given with a timeline on expected deliveries. Our only challenge is not being able to meet our goal to fund these watches. We need your help to turn our dream into a reality. We promise that you will not be disappointed.
