We believe that vintage is timeless. It represents the best of its kind and denotes its high quality from the past. We applied this philosophy in making our watch. We used the most premium materials, traditional craftsmanship and unique design to create this authentic timepiece.
Since we have a huge passion in classic rock music, we curated the ‘Rock for Vintage’ collection. Every detail in our watch is a nod to the features of classic music instruments. The original microphone featured a case design, juke music box featured a dial design and classic speaker featured a case back design at its core, equipped with a reputable Japanese automatic watch movement. Besides, we also offer interchangeable Italian calf leather strap and Milanese strap for you to choose.
We are offering directly via Kickstarter, we are able to cut out the retail channel, middlemen markups, brand exclusivity/scarcity, and offer a US 199 automatic watch with the most premium materials and vintage-inspired design.
Seriously, try to find a better watch for a better price, and we’ll match it.
Welcome to our 8th Kickstarter Campaign!
LENVINO Watch Co. was started in 2017 Jan, a group of watch-addicts with the passion and constancy of the traditional watch craftsmanship. We believe that the most timeless and desirable timepiece must be the traditional one. We would like to awaken people’s mind about the core function of a watch, thus create our brands.
In 2017 Dec LENVINO Watch Co. launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the World’s First Minimalist Design Rectangular Tourbillon Watch. After 40 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 427,860. The result is the most backed tourbillon project on Kickstarter history that year. In 2018 April, we returns to Kickstarter to launch our second project “US$149 Japan Automatic Vintage Racing Watch”. After 30 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 1,344,752. It was such a great success and surprise result for us.
Since then we’ve launched 7 projects on Kickstarter and totally funded over 2.5 Million worldwide. All products are successfully delivered to the backers and received positive comments. (You can find more information from our homepage)
With the success of the previous projects. LENVINO Watch Co. returns to Kickstarter to introduce the LECRONOS second collection-“Rock for Vintage Collection” for you all

This collection is inspired by vintage rock music in the 50s- 60s century. The watch line is characterized by a creative dial designed to resemble the box outline and music panel from the vintage music jukebox.
To differentiate the design from huge fashion watches that are going out in the same, the domed sapphire crystal mirror decorated with the jukebox featured design print and the stratified dial printed with minutes (outer part) and hours (inner part) numerals in hemicycle pattern. The time is indicated by the colored minute and hour hands and the seconds disc. The spinning of the seconds disc resembles a turntable.
The “Rock for Vintage” collection sports original microphone featured a case design with the inner-curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a domed sapphire crystal that is known for its excellent scratch-resistant on the front and a screw-down transparent caseback with vintage speaker design prints pattern from the rear, allowing you to enjoy every movement of the laser brand marked movement rotor and balance wheel motion.
Viewed from the side, the dome crystal joins the case back flawlessly through a smooth curved surface. The lug-less design trucks the strap to be flush with the caseback, giving the watch a more streamline fit on the wrist. The strap also feature a quick change spring bar system allowing you to swap out different straps for every occasion.
The metal parts are made from 316L stainless steel, which translates to greater corrosion resistance and durability in high temperatures.
We are offering two kinds of straps for the backer to choose 1. Italian leather strap and Classic Milanese straps. You will be able to choose the strap colors after the campaign conclusion.
Our interchangeable watch straps are made from genuine Italian calf leather. The strap will also come with the polished 316L stainless steel buckles and engraved with our brand name “LECRONOS”. The straps have a width of 20mm x 20mm, a unisex functional length suitable for most customers, and 9 holes for adjustment. The wristband contains a quick release spring bar, so that the straps can be swapped in seconds without the need for special tools.
They are available in four different colors: (1) Navy Blue, (2) Black (3) Dark Brown, (4) Brown
Our Milanese straps are made from 316L stainless steel and come with an adjustable buckle which can be adjust for every wrist size and engraved with our brand name “LECRONOS”. If you selected the Milanese straps, the plating color will same as your watch case color.
They are available in three different plating colors: (1) Silver, (2) Bronze tone, (3) Black tone
We believe that luxury timepieces should be exclusive and unique. Therefore, the total 450 pieces of watches in Rewards #1,#3 and #5 will be initial Edition and individually numbered. The watches will come engraved with “xxx/450” wording on the caseback. The (1-450) initial numbers will refer to the pledging sequence of Rewards #1,#3 and #5 altogether.
Remarks: Please note that your Backer number may not correspond with the watch number you will receive, since every backer may have the right to change / give up the reward before the project end.
We will confirm your unique number with you once the campaign has finished. LECRONOS "Rock for Vintage Collection" produced after the first 450pcs will not be individually numbered
We believe that a high quality, exclusive, well-designed watch should come in premium packaging. You will feel satisfied when you are received your watches.
The Seiko NH35A movement is known to be a reliable and high accurate automatic movement which is the one of the most popular automatic movements for many watch brands. Most notably are Invicta and Seiko SAR collection, who features this caliber in a large range of their automatic watches.
It is a self-winding mechanical movement, with a hacking function and bi-directional winding system, an accuracy of -20 to +40 seconds a day, power reserve of 40 hours and mechanisms gleam with 24 jewels as it vibrates at 21,600 beats per hour. Seiko NH35A providing accurate and reliable time-keeping functionality to the “Rock for Vintage” collection.
Our partnered manufacturer follows strict procedures to ensure the quality of the watches they produce. Generally, those procedures can be divided into three parts: Technical Control Check, Quality Assurance Check and Final Quality Check.
During the Technical Control Check, a watch engineer will ensure the watches are in the safety structure from the technical drawing to predict and avoid the potential risks.
For the Quality Assurance Check, the QA engineer will ensure that the dimensions of each individual component are 100% identical to the technical drawings and that all components pass the QA test, e.g. drop test and movement test.
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, all should pass the 240 hours burn-in test before dispatching the products to customers.
Select the desired reward option, followed by your shipping destination. Upon conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign, we will send out a survey request where you can indicate your choice of strap colors and/or additional accessories. At that time, you can also confirm your shipping address and other relevant details with us.
Actually, our watches are offering with a perfect specification and rewards package in this price range. We still thinking about this issue. Will have an updated soon.
We will ship the watches worldwide. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable in your region.
We expect to ship the orders from Oct 2018. While we will make every effort to ship your orders on time, we ask for your understanding that slight delays in production may be possible. We will keep you informed of any changes as they arise.
All of our watches will come with a 2 year international warranty. The warranty will cover all parts against manufacturer defects, for which the watch will be repaired or exchanged free of charge.
1. Keep your watch wound.
Winding keeps the watch working, spreads the lubricants and the accuracy should be best with a fully wound watch.
2. Please avoid any Bumps and Shocks of the watches
Shocks can damage any watch mechanism, scratches to the case or break the minor. Remember your watch is a mechanical watch consisted of more than hundreds tiny parts.
If your watch has become dirty, the best way to clean it is with a soft damp cloth.
4. 5ATM Water resistance
Applicable for swimming, washing hands and wind splashing. Diving, showering, bathing, taking a jacuzzi or sauna, or any submersion in deep water whilst wearing your watch should be avoided
The more details of the watches care and maintenance will mark in the instruction manual and come with your selected watches.

Risks and challenges
Although we are new on Kickstarter, we have over 28 years of solid experience in the watchmaking industry. We are aware that our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues. However, we are confident that our professional manufacturing partners can help us minimize the potential risks by deploying strict quality controls during the manufacturing process.
Our manufacturers stand ready to begin production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal. Including the time needed to acquire the necessary parts, assemble the watches and perform all necessary checks, we anticipate that the first batch of orders will be delivered to you in about 4 months’ time from start of production. We will, of course, keep you updated on our progress throughout.
