What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 Stretched Goal

The first stretched goal was achieved! Now you can choose at the end of the campaign the Date Disk color and the Strap. You can choose between a white date disk with black printings and a date disk in the same color as the dial with white printings.

 

 

 

The Devil's Lake

Peren focus to emphasize the mystery behind its ethereal existence deeply rooted into the mythology of Transylvania. This concept is at the core of every perennial project. Peren Nera makes no exception to this rule. The Swiss Made Watch is inspired by the Devil's Lake from the Nera gorges in Transylvania.

 Inspiration

The unique color of the Devil's Lake from the Nera gorges is reflected into the dial while the cave shape of the Lake's surroundings can be seen on the cases's bezel and the dial's rim. The three-tone execution of the case with the sandblasted base and the matte and brushed black PVD coated bezel, represent the fusion of the rugged cave-like environment with the Lake.

 Born on Kickstarter

Peren is a brand that displayed its perennial state for the first time on Kickstarter. All perennial products disposed by Peren are commercialized exclusively online. Only immaterial trading platforms are suitable to respect its ethereal existence.

 

 

 Individual Design

Every perennial watch is in-house designed and conceived to promote the mystery and the mythology of Transylvania while telling a story of its own. The products are designed according to the Neo-Vintage design code.

 Premium Quality

Only premium quality raw materials are used in order to achieve the ultimate perennial product. The elements that compose the timepieces are individually selected from different suppliers and tested to withstand the harshness of time.

 Hand Assembled

Every Peren watch is manually assembled in Switzerland. Exercising control over all the aspects of the manufacturing process, confers us the possibility of producing unique products unmatched quality wise at the selected price level.

 No Retail Markup

All Peren products are commercialized exclusively online. Only immaterial trading platforms are suitable to respect its ethereal existence. To obtain the unmatched Kickstarter price, we calculate the cost of the goods and multiply it by two.

About

We have the prototypes and packaging ready and we are here on Kickstarter to raise the capital that we need for our first run. We believe that we can change the process that you have to do in order to have a hand assembled, Swiss Made perennial timepiece on your wrist. We know it's a tough goal, but with your support, together we can succeed

Schedule

Our factory partner is ready to start production and we are ready for assembling, packing and shipment immediately after our Kickstarter campaign ends. Having already a short lead time with the prototypes, we strongly believe that this will be available also for the first production. We aim to start shipping watches to our backers by May 2018.

Risks and challenges

At this point, we are in the final stages of our project and have overcome many of the difficulties related to the manufacturing and assembling process. We have an amazing manufactory partner and a professional Swiss team working alongside us.
We don't expect any major problems, but we do understand that there is always the possibility of occurring some small delays in the coming months. We will notify all the backers about our progress so far with updates, photos and videos.
