What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

SCURO watches philosophy is simple :  

To create a timeless sport watch in a lightweight and strong titanium case that is powered by a high quality automatic mechanical movement with the goal of bringing you premium quality products at fair pricing.  

Since 2016, we have launched 2 Kickstarters successfully, raising over 160K and delivering to over 500 backers.

 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  

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   

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.

CURVED CASE DESIGN 

We opted for a 4 pm crown position, this design allows for your wrist to move and flex naturally without even the slightest abrasion. We custom made the case with a convex design for optimal fit and comfort in everyday wear.

Prior to this Kickstarter campaign, 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.

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$247.   

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for believing in us!
