BACKER GOAL 3 (SPECIAL REQUEST) $67,000

This is one massive reward and comes by special request.  With this request you get to trade the two high-end leather bands that come with this watch for one very high-end stainless steel custom band. 

(Click Image For Close-Up)

In addition to this you have the option of upgrading your band to the same high-end black or blue plaiting to match the case of the watch for only $30.  Which is incredible as we use an expensive plaiting process.  Each piece that is plaited spends over 5 hours in the plaiting machine.  The plaiting includes at least .8 microns of Tin and .1 to .2 microns of Gold.  Then plaiting is tested to withstand 72 hours of salt spray.  All of this cost more, but the end result is a much better product!

**Also, upon completion backers will be given the option to purchase additional leather straps with with their choice of deployment buckles or traditional buckles.

WOLFE WATCHES - Be Rare, Go Dress-Rugged

WOLFE WATCHES has been 15 years in the making! Now with your help we will be impacting the watch community and delivering exceptional watches for the money.

Our goal is to give to you value on top of value. The initial watch we are offering is an exceptional opportunity for the watch connoisseur and enthusiast alike! However, we are not stopping there. We are on schedule to make WOLFE WATCHES a well sought after brand; making this our very first solid stainless steel production run, a profitable investment for the collector as well. Each watch will have the production number of the particular watch/s you acquire on the side of the case. This way you will know the production number of your piece, giving you and the collector alike a more valuable watch.  The first watch off the production line will be inscribed 001.01 on the side of the case.  The next watch will have 002.01.  If this same model is produced again in the future the numbers will be ***.02.

We have put a lot of thought into this model as we plan on using it as a launching pad for future models and to set the tone for future expansion. We refer to our styling as "dress-rugged" which employs details of a superior refined watch packed into a rugged case and quality set that is up for the adventures of life.

We Are Heavily Invested - You Reap The Benefits

We have been in the business since 1999 and have invested 2 years in getting WOLFE WATCHES trademarked.  After watching many companies do things right and wrong we have observed a real need in this segment.  The ability to bring well thought out and conceived designs to the market, at a price point that makes sense, was our en-devour and we are very excited with the results.


The Movement

After years of experience and research there was one movement that made sense.  This is the SeaGull 2502.  There was an ETA movement and a higher-end Miyota movement that were very carefully considered; however, for this watch the choice was clear.  We choose the SeaGull movement for several reasons.  The 2502 combines the best of several different design concepts.  It has the quieter and more luxury feel of the very high end Swiss Movements, while at the same time giving us the ability to produce a watch of quality that is below the $700 price point.  Upon testing, these movements perform like Rock Stars with incredible accuracy and reliability.  You add all of this up with the breath taking beauty of each piece and the decision was easy. 

Addition info: Go to google and search for “Gear Patrol Seagull Movement” then do a google search for “Worn and Wound Seagull Movement” which is a third party watch review site and see all they have to say about Seagull. Dig deeper and you will find watches ranging from $119 to $370 retail with the occasional lower end selling on ebay for less. Also, it is important to note that after reviews these watches were typically valued higher than selling price by third party reviewers. Call, email, or message us with any questions or concerns you might have. We are dedicated to product quality and customer satisfaction!

Our Thanks!

First, we want to say thanks to everyone who dedicated time, money, and resources to get to this point in time as it is greatly appreciated.  Next, we want to thank absolutely every person that is helping to bring this dream to life through funding, social media, or word of mouth.  We look forward to hearing from you. 


BACKER GOAL #1 (Let’s Get Social) $40,000

Per backers' request we are putting in a stretch goal for WOLFE WATCH traveler cases. These will have a place to store one watch and an extra band. All of this will be at no extra cost to our backers! Tell everyone you know let's make this one happen...

STRETCH GOAL 1:  Unlocks at $53,000!

This is an exciting reward, as it is actually two rewards wrapped up into one! This goal gives everyone who helped fund the project the choice of two bands for every watch they are receiving. You get the original premium WOLFE WATCH band with traditional solid stainless steel engraved buckle, plus an additional premium leather WOLFE WATCH band with engraved deployment buckle already installed. This reward will be offered at the price of zero dollars and is just another way to say thank you so much for all your support!!!
