About this project

 

 

The distinction of this collection lies in its simplicity and adaptability. Every Dexter watch includes two customized limited edition bracelets, designed especially to be worn with our Metropolitan Collection. Our Dexter Key Wrap and Beaded Onyx Pull bracelets are placed side by side in a beautiful and protective custom wood grain box. The Dexter Metropolitan Bracelet Collection is made to dress your watch to any look, outfit, or situation. Stacking them behind your watch on your left, or solo on the right, the bracelets add an unmistakable charm to any outfit.

In order to ensure an unparalleled standard of quality for Dexter, we have partnered with manufacturers in the watch industry for generations. At the heart of each Dexter lies a Swiss Ronda Movement, a company with over a century of history in Switzerland—the watch movement capital of the globe. Both the Metropolitan timepiece and Dexter Key Wrap are made of surgical grade 316L Stainless Steel. We decided on a beautiful 41mm casing with a two-toned 6 screw backing, waterproofing the timepiece up to 5 ATM. All protected by a nearly unbreakable Sapphire Crystal Glass and marked with an individual serial number to verify Dexter quality. We are so confident in our watches, that we are backing each Dexter timepiece with a 10 year warranty.  

We have been hard at work for years consulting with timepiece experts around the globe, perfecting the design of The Dexter Metropolitan Collection. We decided on a small seconds dial normally only seen on high end evening watches and a stunning split stainless steel dial—guaranteed to turn heads. With the matching key wrap and beaded onyx pull bracelet, The Dexter Metropolitan Collection is truly one of a kind. The bracelets match the watch beautifully and allow you to fit your Dexter to absolutely any outfit and occasion.

The Dexter Metropolitan Collection is strapped to your wrist with custom fit premium Italian leather, making sure you have the best fit possible--without sacrificing style, comfort, or durability. If you’d like to switch the look of your Dexter for the day, each strap is equipped with easy open pins, allowing you to change your strap in seconds with no tools.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dexter Key Wrap emphasizes the Dexter Key found at the top of each dial. Each key is created with custom molded 316L Stainless Steel to match the color and quality of the timepiece. The leather wrap will circle your hand multiple times with genuine leather, adding a layered look to your outfit. Adjust your bracelet to your preferred size and secure it to your wrist by sliding the leather loop through the pins of the Dexter Key. The Beaded Onyx Pull Bracelet is made up of polished and matte real onyx beads, linked together with more custom molded 316L Stainless Steel ensuring a perfect match throughout your set. All bracelets are adjustable, creating a custom fit on any wrist size.

 

Risks and challenges

Following funding, we will need to do everything in our power to make sure everything goes as planned and promised deadlines are met. It is common for projects to have troubles meeting set dates in production and shipment, but we have spoken to all our manufacturers and are ready to go as soon as the campaign ends. It is always possible for some units to not be up to quality, so we have set aside time to personally inspect each unit before sending them out to our backers. We will not be outsourcing our quality check to another company. While we have planned ahead for risks and challenges that are the most common, there are always unforeseen issues that may present themselves during fulfillment and we are ready and able to tackle those problems. We are eager to take this next step together with the Kickstarter community.
