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:

ABOUT THE V1-GENT
A Stunning Automatic Luxury Watch constructed from years of experience made available at a fraction of the price with our pre-selling model. Created by Ilan Srulovicz Founder of Egard Watch Company and Gentleman Warfare.
My name is Ilan Srulovicz. I designed my first timepiece for my father years ago as a Tribute to him for all the things he did for me growing up. Timepieces are far more important than just being functional jewelry. They serve as markers of the most important memories and people in our lives. They can be carried on for generations among family members. My father and I both are both the team behind this new timepiece entitled the "V1-Gent" under our new brand Gentleman Warfare. We have years of experience in all aspects of watch design in production and are truly proud of the quality and look of this piece.
There are key elements that make a timepiece a worthwhile investment. Craftsmanship, Quality and Uniqueness. All of the above were carried out in the creation of the V1-Gent.
A masculine luxury timepiece, attractive enough for both men and women. Ladies if you are looking for a cool masculine watch this is it.
Each component of this watch has been thought out to the greatest extent. From the case construction to the dial design.
Prototype after prototype allowed us to obsessively craft a meticulous piece that feels incredibly sturdy in the hand and on the wrist. No element was left unchecked. The V1-Gent come with a 2 year warranty to ensure your confidence in knowing these pieces are of the highest quality.

Go Automatic or Go home!
The V1-Gent is an Automatic timepiece. It is equipped with a Miyota 82S7 Japanese Automatic Movement which winds off the movement of your wrist. No batteries needed!
The Miyota 82S7 is a versatile stable movement that was slightly modify to create a look that was outside the framework of normal timepieces. The Subdials were switched for disks which gives the V1-Gent a slick and high end appearance often not seen. The movement also shows the beating heart of the movement on the dial and through the caseback.
Why we chose Sapphire Crystals with Anti Reflective Coating!!!
The V1 Gent finds a happy medium of case size by maintaining wrist presence and yet still feeling comfortable and classy on the wrist.
We use AA grade plating which is far higher quality than the standard method of plating. This will protect the watch from the plating wearing off over time or from impact.
The case size itself is 45m, and with it's Lugless design the timepiece fit beautiful on the wrist. The case is slightly curved on the bottom to conform to your wrist.
The caseback displays the automatic movement’s beating heart as well as information along with your individual serial number marking your piece as yours and yours alone.
The Dial is a multi Layered, Multi Textured Masterpiece which allows the timepiece to do what it was meant to do… STAND OUT. The subdial disks along with the three dimensional quality of the dial allow it to be unique while still being easy to read and clear.
