- The Gibralfaro Watch -
The Gibralfaro is watch inspired on the motorsport atmosphere of the 70s/80s, looking for that cool and powerful look, with profusion of sharp edges and brushed stainless steel, but updated with the best components and nowadays measurements. Designed to be extremely comfortable in any wrist size, while keeping all the racing and tool-watch feeling!
The Gibralfaro is made by watches enthusiasts for those who really appreciate quality watches. Every little detail both in the design and technical aspect has been taking into consideration in order to obtain a consistent product which we are completely sure it will not disappoint you.
The double domed sapphire glass with inner anti-reflective coating, the modern and high-end movement Miyota 9130 with power reserve indicator to emphasize the motorsport look of the watch, the engraved caseback that shows you the customized rotor of the movement or the blue Swiss SuperlumiNova BGW9 on the hands, are some of the high quality specifications that you can expect in your Gibralfaro.
The Gibralfaro watch is available in two color combinations. A classic deep black dial with sandblasted texture and white hands and accents, or in our stunning glacial white dial with a metallic shine and Laguna Seca blue hands and accents. Both combinations can be paired with black and brown high quality and handmade leather straps.
- The Equipment -
During the last years we have gained an invaluable experience working with the best leather artisans to produce leather complements for our watches, and all this know-how has been used to create the leather complements of the Gibralfaro.
We have designed a two pieces perforated racing strap, and a full leather NATO (not the usual ones with steel buckles) Both will be offered in two colors, black and chocolate brown and are handcrafted only with the best premium leathers.
We think every detail counts, and the packaging is not a minor detail because it will represent a big part of your "unboxing experience" That is why we have designed two different options for the Gibralfaro, not only extremely well-made and beautiful but also really useful. The Gibralfaro as standard will be served in a handmade leather travel case with room for two watches. In addition, you can choose as an extra our stunning leather watch roll with room for two watches and two extra straps, handmade with superb quality, simply beautiful.
To conclude, your leather case will travel protected in a vintage look cardboard box with reminiscence on the boxes design of the spare and tunning parts for sportcars of the 60s/70s. Every Gibralfaro watch includes a short brochure with the warranty terms, user manual and detailed drawings of the watch. The included warranty card has the same design of the chassis number plates that you could find in a classic Abarth 500 of the 70's, isn't it cool enough?
In addition, only during the Kickstarter campaign you can get our Super Special Stage Limited edition pack, which includes our Gibralfaro with full equipment and our vintage style leather driving gloves!
- Gibralfaro Rally -
The Gibralfaro Rally is one of the most popular race events in our hometown thanks to its antiquity and hardness. The first edition was celebrated in 1969 as a nocturnal rally, with more than 500km length mixing both tarmac and gravel stages, it became from this early first edition in a truly demanding event for drivers and cars. The rally has lasted to the present, having been celebrated in 2017 the 32º edition as part of the Spanish National Historic Cars Championship, in which we had the pleasure of been involved as an official partner. So the Gibralfaro watch is our personal tribute to this mythical event of our city which awoke our love for cars and motorsport.
- Warranty and project timeline -
This is not the first watch we produce and, in addition to our personal experience, we have chosen trusted suppliers with long run experience in the watchmaking industry to produce our Gibralfaro. Our technical service is located in Spain, and we personally inspect here every watch by a double check quality control process together with our skilled watchmakers. Just in case you find any problem in your watch, you should know that it is covered by our 1 year international guarantee (2 years for EU buyers).
In mid June, when the campaign come to an end, we will send you a survey to choose the combination of your Gibralfaro (dial color and strap). We estimate about 3 months of production for the watches and leather complements, so we will receive the watches at the end of September, make the quality control and ship to you at the end of October or first November.
We ship all our stuff from Spain, if you are outside the EU, you will need to confirm any import duties you may be required to pay with your local customs office.
We can ship you our watches nearly worldwide. When backing the project simply select where would you like that your new ToW would be shipped, and the pertinent shipping fee will be automatically added to your pledge. If you do not find your country in the shipping list, tell us, and we will see if there is any way to ship to you.
Risks and challenges
With our engineering background, our more than 2 years of experience in the watchmaking industry and the strenght relation with our suppliers, any big risk is been taken in this project. We have made several prototypes to ensure the feasibility and production quality of each component so, at the most you could find a little delay in any stage of the production process.
From the beginning of our brand, communication, service and attention have been our three maxims in our commitment with our customers and the creation process. So you can be confident on we will maintain you updated with the different stages of the production and in case any problem or delay could arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
