WHO ARE WE?
We are a jewelry startup based in Brooklyn, New York. Our company was born in 2015 with a mission to sell high quality and great design jewelry for an honest price. This year we are excited to launch our exclusive watch collection but we need your support to make it happen.
Components and Materials
Case Size: 45mm
Case Thickness: 12mm
Strap Width: 22mm

Water resistance: 5 ATM
Each of our watches will come in a beautiful wooden box.
Getting the right manufacturer was one of our biggest challenges we had. We wanted a manufacturer that shares the same beliefs as us. It took us 6 months to find a manufacturer but the time was well spent. The manufacturer that we chose to partner with is the world’s leading timepiece manufacturer, who, for decades, have produced premium watches for high-end brands that retail for over $1000.
We are so confident in our watches that each of them will come with a 10-year warranty.
Directly to you
By selling directly to you, we are able to sell our watches that would usually retail for over $1000 for a fraction of the price.

Risks and challenges
Each project will have its own risks and challenges but our biggest challenge was selecting a manufacturer that can produce quality watches that meet our standards. The process took more than 6 months. We started by interviewing 20 manufacturers and settled with 4 that we believe could meet our standards. We gave the manufacturers our design and the specifications and it took them 4-5 months to make a sample due complexity of the watch. The manufacturer that we chose to partner with is the world’s leading timepiece manufacturer, who, for decades, have produced premium watches for high-end brands that retail for over $1000.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
