We saw others trying their hand at the perfect wooden watch, but their watches were all too big and bulky. We wanted to bring it to the next level and make a low profile wood watch while still maintaining quality. We are so confident in the Sioux City Watch that we are offering a LIFETIME WARRANTY to the first 100 Backers! (Must select the "early bird specials" in order to get the lifetime warranty.)

Design:

We put months into the design of these watches and were finally able to bridge the gap between style and mother nature. We had a very specific style in mind and it took a lot of hard work, digital mock-ups, and trial and error to get exactly what we wanted.

One of the flaws that we discovered in a traditional wood watch was that a wood band is fragile. It doesn't matter how cool it looks if it's broken. Why not use a band that is super stylish yet is going to last? We used oil-tanned leather so that it will mold to your wrist and be more comfortable the more you wear it.

We are offering two different case sizes, each with two different face designs.

The 45mm case will retail at $109.

We wanted to make the face a little different, so we created graphics that are a little different. (Left-Dia, Right-Tri)

The 52mm case BIG FACE, will retail at $130. (Left-Dia, Right-Tri)

Next Step: 

Production: As you can see from the pictures above, we have prototype samples on hand. These watches are the result of months of testing and design changes. We have established a relationship with a reputable manufacturer and are confident that they can produce these watches after our project ends. At the completion of a successful project we will put in an order and then each watch will be shipped out to our backers! This whole process should take 45-60 days after the close of the project.

Where are the funds going?

All pledges are going towards the first production run of our four models in two sizes. We will use the money towards purchasing wood, raw materials, freight, buying movements, production/assembly costs, and packaging.

We are really happy with where we have taken this design and we need your support! Please help us get Sioux City Watch into production all over the world.

Risks and challenges

We have worked very hard to build great relationships with manufactures. Our main worry is we want to get you the watches as fast as possible. Right now we have a 45 Day Period for our Manufacturer to complete production.

We will keep updated thru the whole process, we are loyal to our customers and and want to deliver a high quality product to your risk ASAP.
