Our Story

We are a team of independent watchmakers located in Boston, Massachusetts. With originality, quality and craftsmanship at our core, we’ve created limited edition watches for like-minded folks who believe that these qualities are what define a modern, sophisticated timepiece. We struggled to find an elegant watch that can be used either for business or casual occasions, so we decided to create our own brand. We offer a luxurious and affordable mechanical watch that’s inspired by propeller blades. It goes far beyond the basic function of telling time, and it doesn’t require you to sell your house to afford it. In consideration of many tastes and styles, we’ve created three different models of the Mach series that work for both women and men.

We Believe in High Quality

Communication

In every aspect of life, communication is key. Once our project becomes funded, we will maintain open communication and update you every step of the way.

From the Drawing Board to a Masterpiece 

​Every elaborate design starts off with a single line on a drawing board. The direction you choose to take your line determines the destiny of your design. The initial line eventually becomes the CAD model, followed by the prototype and eventually, a timeless masterpiece: the watch.

Origin of the Mach Series

While inspiration has no limits—the idea for a new design can happen at any moment.  We combined spontaneous influences from daily life, the classic ideas from the art of horology and our passion of Aerospace Engineering to come up with this state of the art design. 

The most noticeable difference in our Mach Series, the upper layer dial and hand movement, is inspired by the propeller engine blade. The second and minute hands take the shape of a propeller blade.  They constantly rotate with our movement to simulate the propeller blade rotation.

Ever Wonder How Something So Small Can Accurately Keep Time Without A Battery?   

Wonder no more! To put it simply, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy it possesses due to motion. This means that the watch works and accurately keeps time based on the motion of your hands.  

We chose the durable, slim Miyota 82SO Automatic and Manual Wind Movement, built by Citizen, to power our watch.  Not only does it provide us with a high standard of excellence when it comes to craftsmanship, but also, it gives us the accuracy we are looking for in a movement—an accuracy that is comparable to the Swiss ETA movement’s counterpart. The movement has a vibration frequency of 21600 Hz and 21 Jewels. Furthermore, it has an accuracy of approximately -20 to +40 seconds/day, a posture of less than 50 seconds/day, and can accurately keep time for more than 40 hours when it is fully charged.

If You Want Something Extraordinary And Unique, You Have To Create It.

The creation of something truly remarkable stems from a solid design and material choice. Upon the completion of the design, one must determine the necessary materials needed to produce a timepiece of the utmost quality and finish. 

Our research led us to select the austenitic stainless steel 316L—surgically graded with impeccable corrosion resistance, cryogenic strength and toughness and excellent formability. The stainless steel 316L comprises of 10 chemical elements with the majority being Fe (Iron), Cr (Chromium) and Ni (Nickel), so it’s no wonder why it’s one of the top choices for high end watch manufacturing.

Schedule and Timeline

We expect to commence the delivery by June 2016. Quality assurance will take place in conjunction with delivery, ensuring we ship impeccable watches in a suitable manner.

 Why KICKSTARTER?

We need your help! In order to launch the first production of the Mach Series, we need to make a bulk order of at least 300 watches.

--------------------------------- SOCIAL MEDIA ----------------------------------

Risks and challenges

One major hurdle will be to get our name out to the world. With the use of social media and endorsements from well-known watch enthusiasts, we've worked to ensure that this isn't an issue. Also, our watch is being sent to several websites and blogs to be reviewed and spotlighted.

Because we already have the prototype in hand and are thrilled about how it turned out, we're confident that we'll reach our funding goal of $30,000 and beyond. We are fully committed to the success of this project and cannot thank you enough for your support.
