A Unique German Made Automatic Watch for an Affordable Price

 After launching the MOTION V1 last year, we are on Kickstarter this time again to introduce our new MOTION V2 series. Watches are part of our daily routine, but there were none that aroused emotions in us. That was the foundation of MANYEARS. Our watch isn't just a watch of displaying time, it also reminds us to use every second in our lives useful. 

 Time. Everyone knows how fast it goes, but only a few of use it properly. Life is constantly in MOTION. The years pass, the pointer turns, time flies. Our life is like an hourglass, every hour you spend is like a grain of sand, once it falls, it never returns. 

The hour you've spent is now in the past and it won't turn back. MOTION is not just a watch, MOTION is an emotion.

 You've got the chance to choose from the following options before we ship them to you. We offer 4 different variations and 8 different straps as you can (read below – "The Straps") 

Every watch features a 316L Stainless Steel Case, Sapphire Crystal and is 50 M Water Resistant. 

The MOTION V2 is assembled in Pforzheim, Germany. Each component in this watch is crafted with extreme caution and workmanship. Our goal was creating the perfect quality timepiece.

  It was important to us that the MOTION V2 is not just a conventional watch. We wanted to introduce a watch to the community – modern, a bit futuristic and timeless. We chose a circle as an hour hand and a semicircle for the minute hand. The red crown sets a minimalistic accent that gives the watch a sporty touch. 

we worked 10-16 hours a day for the MOTION V1, 2 years ago. We made the design of the watch, the video, the photo, the website and all other stuff all by our own. We used my sleeping room to pack all the watches. It was the first launch of our MOTION V1 and it was awesome! This time we will improve our quality and get new team members to manage the work even better. 

 Our watch is 5 ATM water resistant and can be worn during swimming without jumping from a diving board. It is not qualified to snorkel or dive. 

 The first 2000 pieces of the MOTION V2 will be limited and individually numbered. First backed, first served, meaning the earlier you back us, the lower number you will get. 

MOTION V2 watches produced after the first 2,000 watches will not be individually numbered anymore. 

We decided to use only high quality, anti-reflective Sapphire Crystal (Front & Back) for our watch! Why Sapphire crystal? Read below.  

The main feature of the watch is that we use plates instead of pointers to display time. This type of hour and minute hands is a unique feature of our watch. The plates are made of lightweight aluminum.   

 One of the most important things is the movement. This is something that had to be taken into strong consideration to keep the price point attainable without sacrificing quality. We researched all of the available options on the market that would be the best choice for quality, function and price. A long lasting and precise movement. A robust and dependable engine. 

 Our watch can also be hand winded by turning the crown in "A" position. Wind 15~20 times clockwise until second hand starts to move naturally. 

Built with quality in mind, this watch is constructed using 316L stainless steel casing, case-back. It is more resistant to general corrosion and pitting than conventional nickel chromium stainless steels such as 302-304. 

 You've got a chance to choose from the following straps before we ship them to you. Please note that these options are available, Silicone, Leather and Mesh straps. 

 Every MOTION watch comes with a limited international warranty protecting you against any possible flaws in manufacturing and mechanics for 2 years after original purchase date. 

 We need your support to succeed. By purchasing a watch, we get one step closer to our goal and you'll be part of our MOTION. Our manufacturing and our packaging partners are set and waiting for a go. So everything is ready to start production and will do so immediately after our Kickstarter campaign ends. We really hope, that you share our love for this great watch, get involved and join the MOTION! 

Risks and challenges

PRODUCTION:
Our primary challenge is the production but we developed a strong partnership with our suppliers and they know exactly what we want and how important it is to deliver the watches on time.

DELIVERY:
We know that it is difficult to meet the delivery times exactly. In the case that any delays do arise, all backers will be informed immediately and kept up with all updates.
