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.

INTRODUCING RENEGADE

Carbon Renegade is racing inspired, utilizing high tech composite materials to combine it’s ultra lightweight qualities with sleek modern design.

Coupled with an option of perforated Aero Suede or Quake leather straps - no matter which option, we believe it’ll be a Sleek combination. All sets are bundled with a Watch Roll Case - Free!

DESIGN + PROTOTYPING

For the past year we've been working together with carbon fiber experts developing multiple prototypes and perfecting our final designs. Comfort and luxury styling were the main drivers for our concept - and of course that added sleekness that comes naturally with the carbon fiber design.

Designs that offer multiple styles with each timepiece - we're sure you’ll find your favourite combination from our collection!

Dial Stamping Process > Deburring Process > Raw Material

 

 

THE COLLECTION

Renegade Carbon Fiber Case Series are equipped with Aero perforated Suede Leather straps with deployment clasp type. Non-tapered for a more comfortable, natural feel.

 

Renegade Stainless Steel Case Series are equipped with Quake textured Leather straps with an contoured pin and buckle type closure. Bezel material is 100% aircraft grade carbon fiber.

SEMI-AUTO/MECHANICAL REWARD UNLOCKED (OPTIONAL)

We're currently finalizing all the details, but we'll open up a new reward pledge with full details soon - don't miss out! So check back for updates!

Note: The dial design is updated slightly to adopt our chosen Movement - ST1903. We've removed the date function, to keep focus on the time alone. Everything else remains pretty much the same! We're excited to release this, artist's impression below.

CARBON FIBER

To ensure premium quality and standards of your Rival timepiece, we have partnered with very experienced manufacturers - who for decades have produced exceptional watches from steel, brass and carbon fiber for high-end brands that retail well over thousands of dollars.

Carbon Renegade watches are made from 100% aircraft grade carbon fiber composite with our signature twill weave, providing maximum strength at minimalist weight, offering high durability and striking visual appearances deemed one of a kind.

Also offering a 316L stainless steel option for those who prefer the added weight feel, that is designed to fit any wrist, with any attire.

QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP

All Carbon Renegade models also feature 5ATM water resistance, A/R Coated Hardened Sapphire Crystal glass, 316L Stainless Steel Screw-type Case back, Matching Stainless Steel Hardware, Square Pushers and an Embossed Screw-down Crown.

We are so confident in the quality of our watches, that each timepiece is backed by a 3 year international warranty*.  

RETROGADE CHRONO MOVEMENT

The unique retrogade 3-Dial chronograph movement, made by Miyota (Japan) - was selected for our final design - as we truly believe that it’s a high quality timepiece. Dial counters for milliseconds, minutes and hours respectively.

Every elapsed second is measured through a unique 200 degree reverse-sweep method compared to the conventional 360 degree rotation.

As it moves back and forth, its motion is in “Retrogade” - the progress of motion reverting to an earlier and inferior condition as used in describing astronomy. Carbon Renegade is definitely one of a kind.

LUME TREATED DIALS

All Carbon Renegade models are treated with high quality lume applications*, Supernova C63 was our final choice. Allowing the treated elements to glow strong in low light conditions - and providing good contrast in daylight for an easier to read dial.

*Please note our Sinful Black models will not be treated with lume.

AERO/QUAKE STRAP SYSTEM

Too often do we see uninspiring plain straps, so with Renegade we decided to go for a bolder, sportier approach.

All Carbon straps are equipped with a Q-Release system, making them interchangeable on demand - changing straps never have been easier.

Aero perforated straps were designed to stand out, allowing a cooler wearable on wrist. While our Quake textured straps can match almost any outfit - featuring our unique deployment clasp system - it not only provides luxury - but pure class.

GO RENEGADE

Go Renegade with Rival, we understand that you are always busy, on the move - so we designed Carbon Renegade to be travel-ready.

When backing for any Carbon Renegade watch - we’ll add this luxury watch roll case as a special bonus for supporting our Kickstarter.

These are built to last - made of genuine leather with our signature twill construction with a luxurious matte finish, lined with soft red flannel interior.

Normally $69, yours Free.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULE

 *Please Note that models may vary slightly in campaign, due to the time the photos of prototypes were taken. Photos/Illustrations are to be used as references only, final production models may vary slightly.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is delivering on schedule as from experience with working with Carbon fiber composites, we've found that having a working prototype is not enough. In order to accurately calculate manufacturing time, a production run is needed. We've done this and planned for any deadlines the best we can.

We will work closely with our suppliers and this allows us to keep prices down and have control over the processes involved – keeping you in the loop every step of the way.

If you have any concerns regarding your pledge, feel free to contact our customer service team customercare@rival-collective.com.
