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.

Watch movements are arguably the most important part of a watch: as the heart and brains of our timekeeping devices, you need to have a movement if you want your watch to work. Quartz watch movements are the new style of movement, they are built to last and extremely accurate. We use Miyota quartz watch movements on AstroHelm which are made by the Miyota division of Citizen LTD.

 DIAL DESIGN

 

The definition of a 'California Dial' is very simple. It is a watch dial that consists of half Roman and half Arabic numerals. Numbers 10 to 2 are Roman, 4 to 8 are Arabic with 4, 6, 9 & 12 changing design from brand to brand.

HIGH DOMED GLASS

 

Hardened Mineral glass is a scratch and impact-resistant glass most commonly used in watchmaking. It has superb reflective properties, strength and clarity. The AstroHelm uses a high rise domed glass which need special processing during the production. 

Luminous Index & Hands

 

In bring out the vintage elements in the design, we selected luminous vintage, old radium material on the index and hands

We have engage a strap specialist whom have being used to make watch straps for luxury brands. Each AstroHelm comes with soft handmade full grain genuine leather straps.
