About

 

 

 

 

Our journey began with a desire to create beautifully designed and bold watches, while building a strong and giving company. We have worked hard creating strong and eye catching designs and getting as much feedback as we could. But in our design process we knew that we didn’t just want to make watches that looked great and were high quality. We wanted to do something more, we wanted to be something more. Because of that desire to be something more we began to look around our communities and began asking our self “who can we help and honor with these watches, and why?” We began to look to those who serve our communities as fire fighters, police officers, EMS, and military personnel. 

We saw that these men and women risk life and limb for people they don’t ever know. They put their lives on the line running into burning buildings, stopping rogue gunmen, pulling victims from car accidents, and fighting in service of our country. Discovering our passion and heart behind these watches, we began to get increasingly inspired and had more and more people want to help. We knew we could make a difference, but with your help we can put our plan into action and begin to help and honor those who serve it. For more information about who we are and why we do what we do, please visit our website Zerodarkthirty.us

Our Name:

Zero Dark Thirty is used as a way to say, when everyone is asleep, or when no one wants to go out, when it is inconvenient, the men and women who serve our communities are willing and ready to go on our behalf. They put their lives on hold in emergencies and serve others. 

Our Logo:

Yes we think our logo looks strong and cool, but there is more behind the image we chose. The skull represents all the men and women who have paid that ultimate sacrifice. We wanted to honor them in a way that shows their sacrifice and our individuality. 

 

Our Designs:

The Entrepreneur Series The Entrepreneur has a clean and classic chronograph design. We were inspired by the clean and stylish look of the new business man. We wanted to provide a watch that could be worn during all occasions.

 

 

The Assassin Series The Assassin is a beautiful bold black chronograph design. We wanted to create a bigger watch, and a bold statement. Created with a clean outer bezel and an all black brushed steel housing and band we were able to create a beautiful watch that will stand the test of time. This watch is perfect for a night on the town, but also still has the clean look to wear on the job.

 

 Watch Specs:

Our future designs include a minimalist design, women’s watches, strong and bold designs, digital watches, and a few more chronograph watches.

 *Shirt designs will be chosen by our backers once we are completely funded.

Risks and challenges

There are many challenges when it comes to starting your own company, however we have done our research and have met with many business owners who now mentor us on this journey. We have taken as many precautions as possible, from having multiple manufacturers to building financial plans in case we are not fully funded to allow us to still begin our business.
Our financial goal will allow us to order your watches, create a beautiful box, provide you with a free shirt and sticker/decal and have it all packaged and shipped to you for your enjoyment.
We have worked hard to provide you with a quality timepiece with the hopes that you will continue to allow us to provide more watches for you in the future.
Once our kickstarter is complete, we will place our final order to our manufacturer and they will begin our full production. We project 3 months for production to be finalized and watches at our warehouse, where we will inspect every watch for defects and begin packaging them for shipment. Our goal would be for everyone to have their watches in hand by end of April.
Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!
