About

In 2015, we launched the first Henry & Ashe watch on Kickstarter. Our goal was simple, to deliver a stunning timepiece constructed with high quality components at an affordable price. The response was truly humbling. We nearly tripled our funding goal and because of the amazing support from our backers, we were able to bring our watch to market and deliver them across the globe. 

This year, we wanted to take everything we learned and deliver something even more amazing: The Legacy Automatic.

We believe that a watch can be more than a watch. It can remind us of a time or a place; a moment when your heart beat faster. It can bring you back to a memory, an adventure, a journey… life. We believe a watch can say a lot about who you are and be part of the legacy that you leave behind. It should be special. This is what inspired us to create limited edition and exclusive heirloom timepieces for our next collection. 

Stunning Design - We believe that a watch should make you feel as good as it looks on your wrist.  

Quality Components - Affordability does not mean you have to sacrifice quality. We use the highest quality materials including a Miyota 9015 automatic movement, sapphire crystal, 316l stainless steel, and leather straps.

Honest pricing - We’re working with leading watch manufacturers to create high quality timepieces that would regularly retail for 3–4x more.

We’ve spent the last year perfecting our design and working with top watch manufacturers to create the perfect timepiece.

Our goal was to create a watch that fits perfectly in the Henry & Ashe family. The Legacy Automatic features a distinct second hand, stunning date display and a newly designed, limited edition caseback. We have also added quick release leather bands, so that you can change your look with ease.   

The skyline of Miami is classic and clean, yet vibrant and bold. We made sure to reflect these elements in our watch and caseback design.

Never change your watch battery again. We knew that we wanted our signature collection to feature an automatic movement. An automatic movement is a mechanical watch movement that is powered through the natural motion of your wrist. This means that when you purchase a Legacy Automatic batteries are not included… or needed!

At the heart of our watch is the remarkably accurate and reliable Miyota 9015 Movement. With a power reserve of ~42 hours, 24 jewels, hacking second hand and 28,800 vibrations per hour, the Miyota 9015 is the perfect movement for our watch.

Our case measures 40mm in diameter and 9mm thick. We pride ourselves in creating versatile watches that are perfect for every setting. We found that 40mm is the perfect dial size for that versatility. The case is made using 316L surgical grade stainless steel.

Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal will come standard on every Henry & Ashe. We have seen many campaigns make this feature a stretch goal. We believe this should be a standard feature on any luxury watch.

The secret is out. A watch purchased at a retailer is often marked up to 300% and beyond. We believe that it doesn’t have to be this way. At Henry & Ashe we manufacture and deliver our watches directly to you, without the markup. This allows you to purchase an heirloom quality mechanical timepiece for a fraction of what you would pay from a luxury retailer.

Case Diameter: 40mm 

Case Material: 316l Stainless Steel

Each Legacy Automatic is limited to 1896 pieces. We believe that an heirloom timepiece should be unique and exclusive. This is your chance to own a limited-edition watch at an incredible value.

When you choose to back our project, you will receive a Limited Edition Legacy Automatic timepiece.  

By pledging your support during this campaign, you are able to take advantage of special early bird pricing. The first 100 backers will receive a Henry & Ashe timepiece for $259.00 ($140 off the retail price of $399.99). The next 200 backers will receive a Henry & Ashe timepiece for $279.00 ($120 off retail price). All additional backers will receive a Henry & Ashe timepiece for $299.00 ($100 off retail price). We've also added the option for additional savings if you choose to purchase multiple Henry & Ashe timepieces.

We look at Henry & Ashe as more than just a brand. It is truly a family. Without you, nothing is possible, and together anything is possible. As a crowdfunding campaign we are in the business of asking for pledges, but we think it’s only right to make one to you, our backers. Today, we take the pledge to deliver an amazing mechanical watch at an incredible value. 

  

Risks and challenges

We learned an incredible amount from last year’s campaign. The type of knowledge we gained through our first Kickstarter experience has truly been invaluable. We have partnered and forged relationships with reliable manufacturers that will help us bring this model to market. We’ve spent the last year ironing out all the details and making sure our supply chain is in order.

We will keep our backers up to date throughout the campaign and manufacturing process. We will always place an emphasis on quality, timeliness, and communication. We don’t take your decision to back our campaign for granted, and we will do everything in our power to meet or exceed every expectation.

*International Buyers: Please note that VAT is not included in the purchase price. Your country of residence may require an additional fee before releasing your package for delivery.
