With successful careers in the Silicon Valley, the central hub of technology, we’ve always had a passion and appreciation for classic horology. With the rise of smart-devices surrounding us and managing our lives, our appreciation for classic horology had grown even further. 

With our addiction to classic horology, we found ourselves struggling to find an elegant, luxurious watch that fits within our price range. We were coming across beautiful, elegant designs, with steep price tags, or affordable watches that boasted nothing but that… affordability. 

... and that is why we are on Kickstarter.

As our story unfolds, one thing that will never change is our obsession for designing elegant, luxury watches with premium components, and making them accessible to as many people as possible. 

    

From the inception of our vision, to the delivery of our timepieces to you, we’ve been able to perfect our prototypes and designs by connecting with watch designers throughout the world and going through several iterations to ensure we offer a timeless, luxurious, simple yet elegant timepiece that will complement your look.

Different collections carry a different charm, and the colors we offer will allow the versatility for you to change your look based on the occasion. We are confident that you will find your favorite!

At Ethereal Timepieces we understand the importance of maintaining a reliable supply chain with manufacturers that believe in our vision. To ensure the quality you can trust and the premium standard you deserve, we are collaborating with world renowned manufacturers that have been creating elegant watches that are built to last for several DECADES. 


Ethereal Timepieces are built to last, utilizing 316L Stainless Steel for the premium weight and lasting prominent finish. The way we have tapered the sides of the case ensures that it feels comfortable and reflects the light in all angles, giving it that beautiful elegant shine. 

The caliber of the watch represents the heart. When we were studying amongst the watchmakers of Switzerland, the answer became clear. Their fearless mechanics and reputation is unmatchable. Once the heart stops beating, a watch is just a dead body, and we wanted to bring to you luxury timepieces that are built to last.

The inspiring confidence of the soft premium feel of Italian Leather will make these watches the first thing you reach for as you start your day. Available in multiple styles and colors, the straps are equipped with a quick-release spring bar so you can swap them out in a matter of seconds! 

The way the the watch industry currently operates is the reason why people look for more affordable options and sacrifice the luxury aspect they deserve. Here's how it works: 

We believe you shouldn't have to spend a fortune to own a beautiful luxury timepiece. Therefore… we do things the honest way.

 By leveraging a direct to consumer business model, we cut out all the excessive markups. We are disrupting the luxury watch industry, by offering you a limited edition Swiss-caliber luxury watch at a cost that you deserve.

Does this all sound too good to be true now? Yes... but there is one CRITICAL FACTOR to keep in mind. In order to express our gratitude, our supporters will receive a highly-exclusive experience. All of our designs are limited to 2,000 pieces. Once these are gone... they will be gone forever. So act NOW. 

A modern evolution of one of the oldest complications in the history of horology. The Artemis Moonphase is praised for its subtle design yet focus on the mystique of the moonphase subdial.

For those of us who love dress watches that are quietly commanding, the Dionysus is designed for you.

Like a fine, aged wine, the Dionysus is only appreciated by those with a fine taste and a keen eye for classic, timeless craftsmanship. A vintage-inspired cambered dial, with slightly curved hands to conform to the dial shape and reduce parallax error.
