With your phone always an arms length away, few people use a watch to tell the time anymore.
So why are mechanical watches still so desirable?
Mechanical watches are a reminder of a simpler, less technology obsessed time. When a watch was a work of art, not just a timekeeper.
Their craftsmanship and uniqueness make them extremely valuable to own. There’s nothing you can wear that makes a bigger statement than a mechanical watch.
However, this comes at a hefty price. Until now...
Uncompromising Quality, Without The Price Tag.
Creating a high-quality mechanical timepiece (at a fraction of the market price) was our challenge.
How did we do it?
To make our dream a reality, we spent 12 months working with the best British watch designers and world-leading manufacturers who specialise in producing luxury mechanical watches that retail for thousands of pounds.
With their help, we managed to innovate the design and manufacturing process using state of the art materials.
Every style of Ape-X is limited to 1717 pieces and hand-crafted with it’s own identification number. This makes each timepiece unique and the only one of its kind.
Ergonomically Designed One-Piece Case
Most mechanical watch cases are built using multiple (unnecessary) pieces of stainless steel, driving the price up.
The Ape-X case is built with a single-piece of 316L stainless steel giving it superior strength.
The World’s Easiest Interchangeable Straps.
Most mechanical watches use a fixed-pin strap that without complicated tools or trips to the jewellers is impossible to change, driving up the cost for consumers.

Risks and challenges
We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan.
We’re not new to production. We’ve spent the last 5 years working hard to produce great mechanical timepieces. This meant building a very capable team who work hard to ensure smooth delivery of all our products.
We have built solid relationships with professional suppliers over this time period who we know well and trust. Prior to our Kickstarter campaign, we have already prototyped the Ape-X and rigorously tested it.
We're confident that we'll meet or beat our projected delivery dates. We’ve planned ahead and done our research, however, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterwards.
Thank you for all your support! We’re excited to bring you the Ape-XLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
