The Blackest Watch Ever Made

€378,775

878

We set sail to manufacture the blackest watch ever made, delivering the most fascinating and best time reading experience in the history of watchmaking.

Our super-black coating is up to hold the world record as the darkest man-made substance. It was originally developed for satellite-borne blackbody calibration systems, but its unique physical and optical properties have resulted in it finding to create the best readable watch dial.

The Chronotechna watch face absorbs virtually all incident light, making it ideally suited to addressing a host of light-suppression and light-management problems, such as under water or under extreme sun. It reflects so little light that it is often described as the closest thing to a black hole we'll ever see.

Super Black Technology at Harvard University.

We teamed up with the Swiss company RC Tritec, a world leader in lume technology since 80 years. And we are using their latest patented formula the Grade X1 for longer and stronger lume.

We exclusively use the best available materials such as Marine Grade 316L Stainless Steel which is used in the harshest earthly environment and optional - at no additional cost - DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating which makes the watch case almost absolute scratch resistant.

Swiss Automatic Self-Winding movement from Sellita (SW200-1) with a Vibration Frequency of 28'800 beats per hour. 38h Power Reserve and -10/+10 sec. Accuracy per day.

Forecasting & Supply Chain Risk

All of us have backed various project on Kickstarter and we are very aware of the values that backers bring to the project. We have spend countless hours in the preparation of this campaign and have chosen carefully our partners to guarantee a seamless timeline to deliver your watch from factory to your home without any luxury retail markup.

But sometimes forecasts don’t always work as initially planned. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know and solve the problem immediately.

Furthermore we promise complete transparency, and we will communicate on a regular basis with our backers.
