About this project
Welcome to SCURO Watches
SCURO watches is a new watch company with a simple philosophy: create a timeless dive 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 watches.
Dive watches are some of the most popular and historically important watches. However, some are just too expensive for many buyers and “affordable” dive watches are often big and heavy while also disappointing with the movements they offer. By cutting out the middleman, SCURO watches are able to provide a rugged yet handsome watch made of titanium, in a thin 11mm thick case. The signature bezel adds a touch of contemporary styling while being discreet enough to allow SCURO watches to exemplify dive watch design. Our design goal was simple: create a no-compromise dive watch that respects history but utilizes cutting edge materials.
In the Press
The SCURO watches mission is simple: -
We are the no-compromise, timeless looking, titanium dive watch that is designed to last.
Quality : Built to last and backed by a one-year warranty.
Aesthetics : Timeless design with a modern touch and contemporary
Affordability : Premium in quality yet affordable in price.
Versatility : Designed to accompany any outfit, occasion or activity.
The Titanium Case
Titanium is a very popular material choice for high-end watches for three main reasons: -
First off, it is about five times stronger than steel, making the SCURO watch far more durable than even costlier alternatives on the market.
-Titanium is about half the weight of steel with a density of 4.5g/cc vs. 7.8g/cc for steel.
-Finally, titanium is highly corrosion resistant. This means no rusting and has the added benefit of being hypoallergenic.
Measuring 40mm in diameter with a thickness of 11mm, the model S Titanium watch case is fitted with a scratch resistant anti-reflective Sapphire crystal and a solid Titanium screw caseback. These dimensions make for a very wearable piece that is ideally proportioned and allow for versatility while allowing a water resistance of 200 meters. It’s dive ready with a nicely gripped and simple dive bezel. Thanks to the titanium case, the SCURO model S watch weighs just 40 grams. The SCURO Titanium is features a Miyota 9015 caliber movement. This solid, reliable movement has a 42 hour power reserve, 24 jewels, and a classic three hand display with discreet date display at six o'clock. The spec of the Japanese 9015 is a conscious one that brings with it many benefits. For starters it’s more than a match for its Swiss counterparts on all levels; from accuracy to reliability. Smooth with a decent power reserve it’s an automatic movement that can be hand wound and features a hacking seconds hand for syncing to your chosen time zone. The movement runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 42 hours. Granted, there are movements out there with bigger reserves and faster sweeps but they come at a price and tend to spend more time on the work bench. We simply want the model S to spend more time on the wrist. It’s also a nice thin movement, which means we can keep things slim in the case without losing strength.
IMPORTANT FEATURES OF THE MIYOTA 9015 AUTOMATIC / MANUAL WINDING
The 9015 is powered up by either an oscillating movement of it’s weighted rotor through natural counter clockwise movements. Or manually winding it by the crown. Just pull the crown to position “A” and turn roughly 20 times
HACKING SECOND HAND
Hacking function allows the second hand to completely stop while setting the time. Crown must be pulled to time setting position for the second hand to stop. This is done for precise synchronization between multiple time keeping sources
VIBRATIONS PER HOUR
The standard for modern watches is 28,800 vibrations per hour. Our Miyota 9015 is no different. Beating at 28,800 per hour allows for more precision and greater likelihood to keep accurate time. Higher rates on the other hand can effectively maintain greater accuracy but also lead to more time on the work bench
This particular movement can last, on average, 42 hours between complete power ups. After a days work once you remove your watch and place it back in your black leather roll it can sit motionless for roughly 42 hours before being completely out of power. But you’re not going to let this baby sit are ya?

STRETCH GOAL 1
Once our campaign ends, we will immediately place the orders with our manufacturers. Depending on how large the orders are, production will most likely take between sixty to ninety days. We want our backers to receive their watches as quickly as possible without sacrificing their quality. The watches will be individually inspected once they arrived. There will be full disclosure with our backers and they will be updated every step along the way. Thank you so much for being a part of this project!
We Need Your Help !
In order to keep costs reasonable, we need to order a minimum quantity of watches. By becoming a backer of our project, you will help cover a portion of production costs in exchange for a cool, fun & premium quality timepiece at a highly discounted price!
How the funds will be used
Our Plan & We Need Your Support to build SCURO watches!
We are now ready to make the SCURO model S Titanium watches available to our backers. We have completed the final design and all specifications. We have been testing several prototypes and are fully satisfied with the look, feel and quality of the watch. Our manufacturing partners have confirmed that they are ready to start production as soon as we give them the go-ahead. Once we place the order with our suppliers, they will start the manufacturing and assembly of the different parts of the watch. The completed and assembled watches will then be shipped to us for final inspection and testing. The only thing missing is the initial order fee. I need to order a minimum quantity of watches in order to get the best deal and that's where you come in to make this mission to become a reality and it will not happen without your support. By becoming a backer for this project, you help us fund the first production run and to make this awesome watch to life, not to mention you score an cool & premium quality watch at a huge discount!
Risks and challenges
We realize creating and delivering a product is a complicated process and often comes with unexpected challenges. That is why we have been preparing. We gained tremendous experience through our previous SCURO watch project before with the manufacturer.
We have spent the past several months making sure our supply chain is in check. We have well-established relationships with reliable watch manufacturers. We have experienced and we are prepared to deal with fulfillment of goods. We also have contingency plans for all the steps that are out of our control.
We are going to keep our backers informed during the production process. We'll do this with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible, for example when manufacturing of the watch cases is completed, during manufacturing of components, during final assembly, when the packaging is produced, etc…
If somewhere along the way we find that there is a setback in production, or that we cannot make the timeline, we will keep all of our backers informed.
In the end, we want to make SCURO a long-lasting brand of affordable watches. We will do whatever it takes to fulfill our promises and to deliver watches that will exceed our backers’ expectations!
