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.

Renzo Watches are an affordable option made for watch lovers looking for a classic Swiss-Made timepiece. 


Attend your next business meeting or enjoy a night out on the town with a Swiss-made timepiece as stylish as you are.

How to Set Date & Time 

Basic Use of the Chronograph

How to Reset the Chronograph

We produce quality timepieces without the need of onboarding logistics partners, distributors, and boutique sellers. By cutting out the middlemen, we can focus on providing the most tasteful and high-quality Swiss-made watches for the true aficionados at unbeatable prices.

At the completion of the campaign, backers will be able to choose their watch model through a backer survey from the 35 different options shown above. Extra quick change straps are available to customize any watch.

All the details and component performance you’d expect in order to take your watch collection and style to the next level without breaking the bank.

Treat yourself to the finest Swiss industry standard chronograph movement that displays a variety of counters for measuring elapsed time. The counters can effectively register hours, minutes, and seconds.

If you ever find yourself in need of a way to measure intervals of time, the Swiss 5030D Chronograph comes with stopwatch capabilities.

Because Swiss precision should never be compromised, we entrusted in the efficiency and reliability of the quartz movement instead of a mechanical movement. 

Studies by the Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute have shown that with mechanical movements there is a drift deviation of up to 6 seconds to maintain the status of being precise. 

On the other hand, quartz movements are held at a higher standard with an allowed drift deviation of 0.07 seconds.

We understand the importance of durability when it comes to purchasing a quality timepiece. As a result, each Renzo watch is built with Sapphire Crystal glass that is highly resistant to scratches paired with an anti-reflective coating for easy readability.

Renzo watches are the ideal option for aficionados looking for a pristine quality Swiss-made timepiece that is both affordable and versatile enough to complement their ever-changing style. You can achieve all of this and more with a Renzo watch because we bring the same quality as the big name brands without the hefty price tag and more versatility of style.

Why spend all your money on a single expensive watch when you can have one that is versatile enough to change looks as much as you do. 

Renzo watch straps are made from the finest quality full grain Italian leather and high-end mesh materials paired with quick release spring bars located on the back of each strap. 

There are no tools required to change your straps, simply press down on the quick release lever and remove the strap from the body of the watch...all in less than 1 minute.

The Ideal Size - We were sure to avoid creating a Swiss timepiece that is not overbearing and bulky but instead designed with an optimal lug to lug size of 48mm to compliment any wrist. 

Renata 395 Swiss Battery - At Renzo, we know that you value your time which is why each Renzo watch is paired with a Renata 395 Swiss battery to ensure up to 54 months of consistent use without the need of maintenance or having to visit a store to service your watch.

Durable Body Casing - We understand life can be unpredictable, that is why we have built Renzo watches for the long lasting durability using 316L surgical grade stainless steel for solid weight and feel. 

Dial Finishing - Each Renzo watch dial is handcrafted with individually applied indexes by a team of highly qualified watchmakers who hold their craftsmanship to the highest standards.

Waterproof - We understand that accidents happen that is why we made sure that each Renzo watch is individually tested to withstand water resistance up to 50 meters.

3 Year Warranty - We are confident in the quality construction and materials of Renzo Watch. So much so, that we are providing a 3 year warranty against all manufacturing defects on every watch.



Factories (and some of the biggest names in the Swiss Watch Industry) have been producing here since the 1800's and continue to the present day. It is important to us to ensure that we produce our watches where the best time pieces in the world are made, Switzerland.

All of our watches are handmade in a respected principality in the district of Franches-Montagnes in the canton of Jura. Our team oversees the creation of each Renzo watch to ensure you will receive a high-quality Swiss-made timepiece from artisan watchmakers from the Watch Valley where watchmaking is more than just a job. It is a way of life. 

This is the area that is responsible for forging the world recognized reputation of the Swiss Watch Industry and this is why we were adamant that Renzo watches be produced here.

We are on a mission to bring you the best possible quality at a price that will not make you regret your purchase. Traditionally there have been many players in the pipeline who mark up prices when bringing high-quality Swiss-made watches to market. 

While this may seem beneficial to business owners, ultimately this model was not designed with the end consumer at the core of its focus. With Renzo, we avoid adding additional players so we can ensure that everyone can have access to a timepiece that they can be proud of. 

           
       
        
                                            

Risks and challenges

As of now, we have been able to mitigate any issues thus far but understand that we may encounter the usual quality assurance issues during the manufacturing process. We have already hired a specialist to do spot checks during the process before finalizing products for shipment. Another hurdle we may come across includes assembly delays and/order fulfillment delays. Nonetheless, we are actively prepared to address any of these situations that may arise in order to make sure our backers receive their orders in a timely manner.
