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.

ABOUT US

In 2010, the Compañía Relojera Especializada Para Actividades Subacuáticas (Specialized Watch Company for Underwater Activities) was born with a mission: rescue vintage diving watches from oblivion to reinterpret and adapt them to current technology. The first brand was CREPAS WATCHES. CREPAS has made memorable watches, has collaborated with forum and groups, has been a pioneer in designing a watch according to their followers’ opinions in social media and, nowadays, is making a watch of the biggest watches group in Facebook: Diver's Watches.

A year later, in 2011, TACTICO WATCHES was born, whose aim was creating military-inspired watches, especially pilot ones, although over the years we have made other types of watches. 

In summer 2015, we were pioneer in launching a successful project in Kickstarter: the Tactico GEOMASTER. Today, three years later, we are launching a new brand and its first model.

ALMIRANTE WATCHES presents the model Navegante 120 Brazas

PROJECT IN KICKSTARTER

We present this project in the simplest way possible. You won’t need a day to get to read the project. Our intention is you only need 8 minutes to understand everything.

The model Navegante will have retail price of 349 euros for non-EU citizens; for UE and Spanish backers, it is mandatory to add to this price 21 % VAT, for a total of 422 euros.

Because of their trust in our new brand, backers from Kickstarter will benefit from great discounts on the official marked price. The first sponsors will benefit from a very special price, whose aim is to make this project successful, so the first 50 units will have a price of 199 euros for non-EU citizens (plus 21 % VAT for the EU citizens) Take it easy, if you're late you’ll still have a good price. Once the promotion period is over, the watch would be ready for delivery in about two/three months, although we will duly inform of every step we take in the project, so we keep you updated on every detail. We want you to take part of the production of this model. Don't miss the opportunity of owning the first model of ALMIRANTE WATCHES.

PROJECT NAVEGANTE

The first precision timepieces were created to control the position of the boats in the high seas. These timepieces, called sea chronometer, were imperative in every ship.

Our inspiration
Our inspiration
Dial and hands were our inspitarion
Dial and hands were our inspitarion

Our version is based on a French chronometer of the Navy Service Hydrographique. In a classic case designed by us, we have located a self-winding caliber with only time function and we have added an inner bezel to control 60-minutes intervals. This device is controlled by a second crown located at 2 o’clock. We have made it as always: with passion and care. High quality stainless steel 316L, sapphire crystal, Viton and Tefzel sealing gaskets, Japanese self-winding caliber, bluish hands, sandblasting dial and ultra water-resistant. The “braza” is an old Spanish unit for measuring the depth equal to about 6 feet.

The model in detail:

Measures:

• Bezel diameter: 42,50mm

• Thickness: 12,80mm

• Length: 53mm

• Crystal thickness: 2,50mm

• Crystal diameter: 35,50mm

• Space between the lugs: 22mm
