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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
SCURO watches philosophy is simple :
Create a timeless sport watch in a super lightweight and strong titanium case that is powered by a high quality automatic mechanical movement. The result is a versatile watch that can fit in at the office, the beach, or out to dinner. After a year of designing, finding a manufacturer capable of producing the design, and product testing - we are proud to present SCURO Volante watches.
Titanium is the most commonly used for aircraft or military applications due to its high strength and low weight, the best among all metals.
Titanium is also hypoallergenic, meaning it is perfectly safe for the human body. In fact, doctors use it for hip and knee replacements for this very reason.
Forged carbon is created under extreme pressure to offer the lightest, yet strongest material available. It is created from carbon fiber strands and forged to achieve its legendary strength to weight ratio, unmatched even by titanium.
Scuro Volante watches are made from the same materials used in a Fighter jet, F1 Race Car, Lamborghini, Bugatti Veyron and many ultra-luxury watches. The Volante is extremely strong, but also deceptively light. ( Watch weight - 65 grams with forged carbon case sides and rubber straps )
DLC - Diamond-Like Carbon coating
A DLC-finish will harden your timepiece, making it more resistant to shocks and scratches. The finish will also keep its polish or sheen no matter what kind of abuse you subject it to.
What makes the Scuro Volante different?
Each watch case is meticulously constructed with the latest CNC technologies. It is then individually handcrafted to bring out the contrasting brushed surfaces.
Concave dial rim with applied indexes filled with superluminous.
Supreme Quality Miyota Automatic Skeleton Movement 8N40 with Small Second Running Time 42 Hours power reserve.

B) SETTING THE TIME

There will be a few small changes from our prototype watches to the production pieces that you will receive. See the list below for improvements made for production.
Improved lume - Swiss Super-Luminova
Caseback, buckle and crown - free upgrade to titanium.
How can we offer this price?
We do things differently.
By using a disruptive, direct-to-consumer model we cut out distributors, wholesalers and retails stores. This way, by avoiding all the middlemen we can offer you
a limited edition luxury sports skeleton watch for less than US$276.
The Kickstarter prices are a one-time offer and are only possible because this is a pre-sale campaign. You are getting the watches practically at factory price. We, on the other hand, are able to finance production thanks to your pre-payment and make our new watch collection known on the international crowdfunding platform. A true win-win situation, don’t you think?
The combination of the Kickstarter offer and the new concept has lead to a price that is almost revolutionary. Never have there been a watch made of such unique material at such a comparable price.

Apart from the Stretch Goals showcased below, this time around we wanted to make an effort to show how the watch will be delivered to you!
4 Styles Available
We have 4 different models in this line of Scuro Volante :
SV - 1 : Brushed titanium with red hands.
SV - 2 : Brushed titanium with blue hands.
SV - 3 : Black DLC with red hands.
SV - 4 : Black DLC with blue hands.
3 Styles Available
We have 3 different models in this special edition of SV - R :
SV - R1 : Heat treated titanium case with rose gold hands.
SV - R2 : Heat treated titanium case with red hands.
SV - R3 : Heat treated titanium case with blue hands.
Each and every heated ti case has a different color effect.
As a result, every single watch we have ever produced, and will ever produce, is entirely visually unique in it’s appearance, due to the variations of heated process.
That means, even if you own two watches of the same model, there will still be visible differences between them – and forms a big part of what we consider to be the charm of owning a Volante S.E heated ti case.
Our working prototypes have been rigorously tested. In fact, we have spent the past year advancing our working prototypes to production quality.
For the Final Quality Check, the final QC engineer will rigorously test all watches, e.g. through water resistance and plating tests. In order to ensure the watches well functioned before dispatching.
After the Kickstarter campaign concludes, we will send out surveys gathering backer information to begin production. Meanwhile, we want to continue R&D for the watch. We will rigorously source, test, and research the materials and production of the watch. While the watches are being manufactured and packaged, we will be preparing for large scale shipment to our backers.
We have worked very hard over the past years to reach this stage. We will continue to do our best until you are have received your Scuro Volante and are fully satisfied!
And to do that, we sincerely need your support! Together, let's make Scuro Volante the major 2018 Kickstarter a success story!

Risks and challenges
There are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that arise when trying to bring a new product to life. There are so many moving parts that must be managed. However with this being our third product launch, we can confidently say that we are experienced in this process and have developed systems and processes to mitigate the risks and obstacles that will arise. We will work hard to ensure that we deliver what we promise and to go the extra mile whenever it is possible.
In the event of delays to milestones or reward deliveries please note they will be shared promptly and a revised schedule provided.
Our production samples are ready, tested and approved. Now, all we need to do is reach our goal and start production. And, like in every Kickstarter campaign, if we do not reach our goal you will not be charged.
