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 :
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 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.
Custom matt carbon fiber dial with special effect on the side.
We used only high quality, anti-reflective coating Sapphire Crystal (Front & caseack)
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.
Each watch case is meticulously constructed with the latest CNC technologies. It is then individually handcrafted to bring out the contrasting brushed surfaces.
Deep concave dial rim with applied 3D indexes filled with superluminous.
Supreme Quality Miyota Automatic Skeleton Movement 8N40 with Small Second Running Time 42 Hours power reserve.
A) WINDING THE MAINSPRING Automatic winding watch can also be hand winded by turning the crown clockwise in Normal position. Wind several times clockwise. It will start to move naturally.
B) SETTING THE TIME
1. Unscrew the crown and pull out to the 1st Click Position.
2. Turn the crown to set hour and minute hands.
3. After the time has been set, push the crown back and screwdown to the Normal position.

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.
