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.

As a watch enthusiast and watch lover who appreciate great designed products, Andrew Oliver created the ZOID Mastermind. ZOID Mastermind is designed to be a practical day-to-day wear that is different from the mainstream. (And to let the wearers stand out!).

The watch itself is a resemblance of a modern futuristic time machine with the see-through crystal case, also the internal housing that holds the honey-comb patterned dial. A union of performance and edginess, the skeletonised movement creates a timepiece that brings out your individuality, that makes you stand out. 

ZOID Mastermind is mechanical, so the motion of your wrist is all it needs for power. Also, a mind-intriguing classic by the day and comes to life at night with green lume.

ZOID Mastermind cases are 48mm x 42mm and 9mm thick. The crown is fitted at 12'position. The curved see-through case on the sides of the watch serves no function, but it is a mechanical detail that ZOID wanted to incorporate into the design. 

The aggressively designed Mastermind case was completely designed by us and is not just another watch case. ZOID has invested time, money and effort to get the finish that he was looking for.

The Mastermind is available in 3 colour variations- Red, Gold and Black.

The honey-comb crocheted pattern dial features index markers on the most outer circumference and hour markers (3,6,9,12) on the respective positions.

ZOID Mastermind is fitted with calf leather straps that are comfortable with a reassuring stiffness.

ZOID Mastermind comes with a customised wooden watch box that comes with a detachable component in such a way that the box can double up as a storage compartment. The interior of the box is covered with carbon-fibre embossed PU leather to give you that exquisite feel. Before you use it for storage, your Mastermind will come delivered with a ZOID Mastermind warranty card and a watch cloth. 

By backing this Mastermind project today, you will be helping us fund the first ever production of ZOID watches. In exchange, you will receive a watch of your choice at a reduced Kickstarter price. 

This is how your reward package looks like! Depending on your choice of Mastermind. (MD1, MD2 or MD3)

The Mastermind prototypes have already been produced and approved with minor enhancements made to it. We are now ready to go into production. 

We will begin production once we achieve the funding goal and we aim to ship out the watches to you in June. We have been conservative and provided extended time buffer with the timeline to reduce chances of any late deliveries. 

Every ZOID Mastermind comes with a 2 years warranty but fret not, contact us should any issues occur thereafter and we will rectify them.

Risks and challenges

Product development is sometimes subjected to unforeseen delays despite us keeping very close contact with the watchmaker.

We welcome any queries from our backers (and will answer them within 24 hours). Regular updates will be rendered in forms of pictures and descriptions.

We aspire in giving all backers a good experience with SPIO PTE LTD and ZOID.
