Steel Artisan Designed Watches - Carrnegie Watches

Every facet of the sword shaped hands, sun-ray brushed sub dials, and sloping tip hour markers are designed to reflect every single ray of light. 

This creates a sharp and crisp aesthetic that shows you're wearing something special and premium.

               

          

        

Carrnegie watches are crafted using our customized 316L grade stainless steel, an optimized formula for a beautiful metallic texture.

Each detail of the satin brushed and mirror polished finishings are done entirely by the hands of steel artisans, giving every Carrnegie watch a unique and sophisticated look that’s usually associated with watches priced over $1000.

           

            

In August of 2016, we began working with jewelry and product designers.

This was an exciting process to create our stainless steel focused case, connecting the lug and the straps seamlessly.

We made sure that the watch was ergonomically designed to be comfortable on the wrist and easy to use.

           

         

          

The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal, the most premium and scratch resistant crystal for watches.  

The straps are made using premium handcrafted Italian leather, leather that ages nicely over time that you can see and feel on your wrist.  

We also use natural caoutchouc rubber, superior over the usual silicone strap. This rubber looks and feels premium, and is usually used by many other famous watch brands as well.

          

              

             

Attention-to-detail is key in the manufacturing of Carrnegie Watches.

Every single component is carefully positioned through hand assembly by expert watchmakers.

We go through strict quality control to ensure a high quality standard in our timepieces that will last on your wrist for years to come, and that is why we offer a 5 year warranty for all our watches.

          

           

All automatic watches come with an open crystal case-back.

Both the First & Fusion Series offer two different Japanese precision automatic movements with 28,800 beats per hour, 24 and 26 jewels, and a 42 and 40-hour power reserve respectively.

           

                            

            

By skipping retail, wholesalers, and distributors, we save all middlemen mark-up costs.

That's how we can provide our watches for under $150, half price off future retail price exclusively on Kickstarter.

We need your support to continue our passion in design and watchmaking!

                

            

              

It took us 477 days to fully refine our stainless steel case.

Our watches are strictly limited to 477 watches for each model, offered exclusively on Kickstarter.

Each watch will receive a limited edition engraving with a unique number "First Edition 000 / 477” and Eads Bridge engraving on the case back.

The first step to deliver exceptional watches is to have full confidence in our own products, the next is to guarantee your satisfaction.  

That’s why all our watches are backed by a 5 year international warranty and an easy 90 day return policy.  

So in any way if you feel that the watch did not meet your expectations, we will provide a 100% refund.

   

 

             

             

                                       

 

 

                  

                            

                      

         

          

 When you back two or more watches, you will receive our First Edition watch box as a special bonus for supporting our Kickstarter.

          

             

                

 

 

 

 

 

 

          

         

           

                        

 

 

 

 

 

      

Risks and challenges

Even though we may be beginners on Kickstarter, we know we need to fulfill two things with our very best efforts:

(1) High quality products
(2) Delivered to our watch lovers’ hands on time.

This is why we at Carrnegie Watches work closely with the most experienced partners in their fields such as manufacturing and shipping. Furthermore, we have planned ahead to face problems that may arise.

We already carry the finalized version of our products on hand, began part of our production, and prepared for international shipping. All of these are to ensure high quality products delivered on time.

Exceptional customer experience is our top priority. The customer service team is always available through online chat to answer your questions. We will keep you updated frequently at every stage of our progress. Thank you Kickstarter community for your support and we’re very excited to step on this journey with you guys!
