About

Model T is a high quality luxury watch. With Model T our goal is to create a great looking modern mechanical watch that does not break the bank. That's the reason we are offering this AMAZING watch on KickStarter.

  • Beauty that a conventional mechanical watch brings can never be replaced by a smart watch. 
  • A good mechanical watch has a real potential to become heirlooms and be handed down almost forever 
  • It does not become obsolete over time.

Our work has identified an obvious gap in the watch market – a modern, cool looking & artistic mechanical watch. Together with our core team of designers, we have designed our first collection of automatic timepieces called Model T.

High Level Details:

  • 3D multi-layered, multi-textured dial with and an open heart to showcase the movement along with a star shaped rotating seconds hand
  • Exhibition case-back showcasing the movement
  • Unique and modern case design
  • Automatically recharges itself with the motion of your daily life: No batteries needed. Ever.

We are a young company founded on principles of providing exceptional value to our customers, we are always looking for ways to make that happen. We don't have a lot of overhead as most of the big companies do. We have a lot of experience with watches that helped us design a piece that looks as amazing today as it will in a hundred years. We believe style and exclusivity does not have to come at a high price.

We value Kickstarter as a way to reach those who value creativity and vision. We want to bring our stylish and innovative products to those who share our dream.

October: Products will be shipped out to us by end of September, and it shouldn't take more than 7~10 business days for us to start shipping those products to our Kickstarter Backers worldwide.

We’ve been working with manufacturers and finalizing prototype to develop our product to what you see today. We have a functional prototype ready. We’ve created a product we’re really excited to share with you and we hope you’ll love.

We've tweaked our initial prototype, finalized the design, and selected manufacturers for strap and watch inserts.

Over the years now we have developed relationship with some very reliable manufacturers who have the capacity to deliver what we ask without compromising the quality. We have ensured they'll be committed to a timely delivery of our orders.

As far distribution is concerned we have partnered with multiple carriers who can deliver our products anywhere in the world. We'll be choosing appropriate carrier depending on the destination of delivery.

The next step is to get these watches on to your wrist. It's very exciting to see when your vision of a product becomes a reality. But this is where you, the Kickstarter Backers come in to save the day.

We need your help. Your support will drive where this product goes. The important thing to remember with Kickstarter is, if we don't reach our full funding goal....we get nothing.

Our reach only goes so far beyond our networks. By simply liking or sharing us on your Facebook page, following us on twitter, or sending a few quick emails to your friends and family goes a long way. Ultimately, our hope is that you will love this watch as much as we do and pledge your support in order to receive one of the very first from us.

Money raised with your support will go directly into funding of all the required materials for our first production run, packaging and shipping so we can bring these beautiful watches on to your wrists. If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to send us an email.

We are two friends Munish Sethi and Bobby Srivastav who have founded Waves Design Studio. We have successfully delivered 2 crowdfunding projects and taken our watches to market successfully.

We know what exactly it takes to conceptualize, visualize and produce a quality watch. With Model T we are taking a giant leap forward. We are really excited about this watch and can't wait to have these out there on your wrists as there's nothing out there that exists quite like it.

With Waves Design Studio we have brought together our strengths/expertise in designing, manufacturing and distribution of products that are unique and innovative. We are inspired to create products that are not usual run of the mill products. We have proven that with our first two successful crowdfunding campaigns.

Risks and challenges

We have spent over a year on this project already designing, prototyping, refining and testing the prototypes. We wanted to make sure that the prototype is complete. We are very confident that we will deliver our products in superior quality by the projected dates.

MANUFACTURING
We have established relationships with experienced contract manufacturers to mitigate the risk of delays by material suppliers and to ensure quality control is implemented to the highest level. While We know there will still be unexpected challenges along the way. We will always be transparent and inform our backers of potential hurdles along the way.

SHIPPING
We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.

PRODUCTION
We have taken the numerous steps so far to ensure that we deliver the best quality product. We have built many working prototypes with the established contract manufacturer. Extensively tested prototypes for performance and durability.
