About this project
For the past year we've been working together with jewellery experts developing multiple prototypes and perfecting our designs.
Italy’s age old traditions of world-class craftsmanship are a cornerstone for all that we make at Filippo Loreti - the rich Italian culture and history is the inspiration for each design.
Different series vary in complexity and style - we're sure you’ll find your favourite!
To ensure a premium quality standard of your timepiece, we partnered directly with some of the world’s leading timepiece manufacturers, who, for decades, have produced luxury watches for high-end brands that retail for over $1000.
Filippo Loreti watches are made from 316L stainless steel, offering high strength, durability and long-lasting visual appearance.
The way how case is designed you can be sure that the timepiece will fit comfortably on wrists of all sizes, both men's and women's.
In fact, we are so confident in the quality of our watches, that each timepiece is backed by a 10 year warranty.
The feeling of the soft, premium quality Italian leather touching your wrist. Size, that that feels just right... as if the strap was crafted for you individually.
Colour, that matches your watch perfectly - creating a look of a thousand-dollar-timepiece.
That is precisely what you are getting.
After you have made a pledge, we’ll ask for your wrist measurements.
Then, our professional craftsmen will tailor a stylish strap for your personally, so you have the perfect wearing experience.
We believe that luxury timepiece should be exclusive and shouldn't be mass produced.
Therefore, every watch model from Filippo Loreti is assembled by hand and is limited edition to 1641 pieces - you will be sure you own a watch that is rare and unique, something you can truly own.
(models that are no longer available will be marked as sold out)
Traditional way involves various middlemen standing in between the product and the customer.
We do things differently.
By using a disruptive, direct-to-consumer model we cut out distributors, wholesalers and retails stores.
This way, by avoiding all the middlemen we can offer you a limited edition Italian luxury watch for less than €150.
The glorious building that is St Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco) in Venice began modestly in the year 828. Over the following centuries the fantastic interior became completely covered with opulent gold mosaics telling the visual biblical stories with wondrous iridescent effects. The incredible details throughout this architectural masterpiece secured St. Mark’s as a symbol of the Republic of Venice’s wealth and power. We have based the inspiration of our newly introduced Venice series of timepieces on this illustrious Basilica.
A masterwork of urban planning, the Piazza del Campidoglio reshaped the Capitoline Hill of Rome into a monumental civic plaza. Designed by Renaissance artist Michelangelo, the sacred ancient site organized Roman government buildings into a dynamic piazza. The bold geometric rosette which unifies the inspiring landscape of the elliptical courtyard captivated us, as evidenced in the compelling design of the dial pattern for our new Rome series of timepieces.
Designed in 1861 and built by Giuseppe Mengoni, the soaring Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Milan’s glorious edifice to bravura architecture. One of the oldest shopping malls in the world, this impressive architectural wonder was affectionately dubbed, “Il Salotto di Milano” – the living room of Milan. This radiant meeting place is the inspiration of our newly introduced Milano Collection, blending superb precision with comfortable splendor.
On the back of your watch you will find a unique artwork that encapsulates the inspirational design of each series.

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to start your own watch collection?
Introducing Filippo Loreti collectors box.
When backing for 2 or more Filippo Loreti watches we’ll add this luxury box as a special bonus for supporting our Kickstarter.
These are built to last - made of strong wood construction with high gloss polished lacquer finish, and black leather interior.
Normally $200, yours free.
While we manufacture our watches to the highest standard of quality, they may not be a perfect fit for everyone.
If you feel that the watch did not meet your expectations, simply contact us and we will send you a 100% refund.
Does that sound fair? :-)
Then you should hurry up and reserve your watch. Each model is strictly limited edition, we would hate for you to miss out on your favourite model.
We have worked very hard over the past years to reach this stage. We will continue to do our best until you are have received your Filippo Loreti and are fully satisfied!
And to do that, we sincerely need your support! Together, let's make Filippo Loreti the major 2016 Kickstarter a success story!

Risks and challenges
We are beginners on Kickstarter, but we and our manufacturing partners have years of experience in the industry! We are aware our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a rock-solid production and delivery plan.
Firstly, our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products on time. We spent over 2 years designing, developing, and receiving finalized samples.
Secondly, we have very skillful and professional suppliers and do not anticipate delays to our timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterwards.
Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
