After the amazing success of the first Kickstarter campaign when I manage to raise more than 500% of the initial goal.

I teamed up with a Swiss Manufacturing Company with over 30 years in the watchmaking industry to produce the ultimate perennial watch developed and individually assembled In-House in the watch capital of the world Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.

  ''There is something about Peren watches that I like, the idea of direct purchases from the company right to your wrists, simply fantastic''

 wristreview.com

We bring to the next level the trendiest ‘’Direct to you’’ feature of the most Kickstarter watches.

IN HOUSE DESIGN AND ASSEMBLING

At Peren Watches we exercise control over all the aspects of the manufacturing process. This particular approach confers us the possibility of producing unique products unmatched quality-wise at the selected price level.

The design of the watch has its inspiration from the Transylvanian tradition and mythology combined with the distinctive legacy of elaborate craftsmanship preserved throughout generations.

 After spending more than one year in the designing process under the guidance of Red Dott award winning Swiss designers.

 We managed to integrate a revolutionary moon-phase indicator at 6H inspired by the astronomical phenomenon of Blood Moon.

 The SOD Logo is inspired by the same representation of a Dragon at the house where Vlad Dracula was born in the city of Sighisoara, Transylvania.

The special elements that define the Transylvanian design of the watch are the two hemicycles at 12H and 6H with holes for both the Date window as well as the Moon-phase indicator. This particularity has its inspiration from the medieval Transylvanian castles.

 Another key aspect of the design is the double layered dial with red indexes on the first layer and fangs shaped excisions on the upper layer. The center of the dial is built to emphasize the bat shape of the embossed inner dial carved with wooden horizontal lines pattern and inspired by the Transylvanian mythology.

 Because we pay the utmost attention to the details, we choose to print our dials at the same Swiss Company as renowned brands such as Omega, Zenith, and Tudor.

The Swiss Made ISA 8171 Movement with its patented double rotor motor and central chronograph trotteuse with five steps per second, it operates similar to an automatic or mechanical movement, giving a smooth motion to the unique chronograph central hand with the counterweight logo harmoniously aligned with the Peren, Transylvania inscription.

 If a certain level of the funding process will be overpassed every perennial timepiece will be individually engraved with the production number on the side of the case.

Emphasizing a distinctive quality expertise within the watches, it is achieved by using only premium quality raw materials and only after conducting a various number of tests throughout the complete manufacturing and assembling process.

Peren is a distinctive Transylvanian brand producing perennial timepieces. 

The name of the brand originates from the Latin word perennis, meaning perennial, everlasting, perpetual. 

 The logo of the brand represents a watch strap buckle with fangs and it is the depiction of Transylvanian mythology combined with the art of watchmaking. 

Son of the Dragon is the signification of Dracula and originates from Vlad The Second also known as Vlad the Dragon, member of the medieval chivalric Order of the Dragon 

SOD is an acronym for Son of the Dragon and it is also known in medical terms as an enzyme within the red blood cells  

 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

 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 June 2016.

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.
