  Peren is a startup founded by a watchmaker and watch enthusiast, with the purpose to create products unmatched quality wise at the selected price point. The main goal is to provide to each individual, the chance to express their character and personality through an accessible, high quality, Swiss designed timepiece, made using only the best Swiss movements and top quality raw materials.

 The dream started to grow in my heart at the age of 10, when I had the opportunity to de-assemble my first mechanical watch, which belonged to my father and it was set to see the fulfillment day after meeting the most special girl, who made me follow her in the famous watch capital Biel/Bienne. There being selected for various traineeships, at some famous Swiss watch brands and after successful accomplishments, I was forced to return in my home birth country due to the latest Swiss voting.

Having the famous Swiss know-how in the watchmaking domain, I decided to start a small workshop, in order to give the opportunity to the people all around the world to have a high quality, Swiss designed and Swiss hearted timepiece at a low price.

Thanks to our direct-to-consumer approach and our hand assembling technique, we skip the middlemen markups such as brokers, retailers, distributors, and we give you the chance to have a unique timepiece at the lowest price possible.

Because we want everybody to have unbounded access to our watches, we introduce the direct on the wrist feature, which allows you to buy the watch directly online from our website and to avoid dealing with commission-driven salespeople from the watch outlets.

 To ensure that all the watches are prepared for perenniality, a rigorous quality testing is to be made and all the watches who pass this process  are granted  2 years warranty by our workshop.

 Having the brand's philosophy in my mind, the design of the watches had to be the characterization of perfectionism. For this the Reddot design award won in 2009, have made of Francois Zahnd and Stefan Geringer, two of the best Swiss watch designers that proved their ability of turning dreams and ideas into works of art.

Giving the passion for flying instruments from an early age, the inspiration for the timepieces came with ease and the historical background provides a great help in order to fulfill the dream. The  second world war IAR-80 fighter aircraft, first presented in the autumn of 1939 at the king's day, His Majesty Carol the second Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, was the best choice giving the similarity between the construction process.

Surgical grade Stainless Steel 316L brushed, matte or PVD gold coated case, that measure 40 mm in diameter and has a thickness of 10 mm. The case is tested to withstand up to 3 ATM.

Swiss Made Quartz Chronograph Ronda 5030D Startech movement, gold plated version with 13 jewels, powered up by a Swiss Made Renata battery, with a standard life of 54 months.

Hardened Crystal Mineral scratch resistant glass, treated with anti-reflexive layers for a better view of the dial in all angles.

Black Metal dial with 3 chronograph indexes and hands treated with Super-Luminova, for better visibility in the dark.

Genuine double layered leather strap with contrast stitches applied/Stainless Steel.

2 Years Warranty

 WHY WE’RE HERE

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 designed timepiece on your wrist. We know it's a tough goal, but with your support, together we can succeed.

WHO WE ARE

We are a group of young professionals from different countries, but with the same Transylvanian roots, having the same vision in terms of accessible quality products. The name of the brand comes from the Latin word perennis, which means perennial, everlasting, perpetual, durable. The logo of the brand  is a vertical semicircle, oriented north with sharp peaks in the southern part, symbolizing the teeth of the legendary character ''Dracula'', a character inspired by the former great ruler and warlord of Transylvania, Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad the Impaler.

THE 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 the beginning of February 2015.

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 support 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 even videos.
