About

After many months of searching for a design which would fit our idea, we finally created an innovative design which gave our watches a remarkable image.

Following the idea of a harmonious design which fits in with our watches, we created a two-level dial with a harmonous wave-shaped division which separates both the superior and inferior parts, granting the possibility of creating unique designs between both parts.

One thing that bothered us, from a personal experience, was the quality of the crystal that we wanted to use. We knew that the hardened-mineral ones were not a guarantee against shock or scratches, and our first priority was to look for quality.

For this reason, we decided to incorporate a high resistant sapphire crystal in all our watches. This crystal is strong against scrathes with an anti-reflection coating, providing the watch with both a total protection and brightness of the dial.

While the good quality Japanese movements have become very popular nowadays, we wanted to trust in the security and reputation of the Swiss movements and thus, we finally decided to implement our watches with a Ronda Quartz Swiss movement

We wanted to start with something simple, a classic Swiss movement with a small seconds dial, but at the same time making it both elegant and casual, thus we decided to launch this two collections we are introducing:

With very characteristic touches like the drilled lateral which makes it quite special, an elegant mix of fine, steel-polished bevel and brushed-steel lateral.

The back side is tighted and sealed to guarantee a 10ATM waterproof quality for the Oakland model and also incorporates all the information of the model engraved in laser.

With an urban design for the daily life and incorporating an elegant touch as well, this watch is remarkable for its versatility: for working, attending an informal dinner or any occasion you could imagine.

Everything began with the idea of a wedding gift, a special watch with both classic and modern touches, atemporal, with remarkable details that may be proudly passed from one generation to the next.

That is how the idea of the Alexandre model was conceived.

We added a Guilloché radial pattern to the subdial design that, along with the lined vertical pattern, creates a remarkable and elegan touch to the Alexandre Heritage model. This mixture gives shape to a watch with both a classic essence and modern style that along with first quality materials and elegant finishing touches result in this magnificent watch that will not go unnoticed on your wrist.

With a design inspired in the classics and adapted to the new era, we have managed to make a modern and elegant watch with a great appearance. After many designs, we managed to adapt it to both narrow and wide wrists without losing its elegance.

Following our philosophy of making unique designs, we did not want to put less effort in our case. With a minimalist appearance and wrapped in luxurius-texture paper, this box contains a unique double-face pad which allows storing your watch and its additional straps.

It also allows some space below for the instructions manual and the guarantee certificate.

To make our project happen, we need to manufacture a minimum number of watches in our factory and this can only be achieved with your help.

Having the guarantee of providing our customers with a great and unique watch, made with high quality materials, Swiss movement and sapphire crystal, get the opportunity of purchasing one of our watches with the special offers from our Kickstarter campaign:

To make our watches we did not want to risk much and decided to trust in a manufacturer with more than 30 years of experience building watches for different European and American trademarks.

For a full year, we have been monitoring step by step the whole process of design and manufacture of our prototypes to ensure the maximum reliability and quality of the final product.

After receiving some prototypes, we have been inspecting each of them and made some resistance and waterproofing tests; and we are proud and happy with the results.

Right now, as soon as we receive our manufacturing estimate, we are ready to start making our watches as soon as possible.

.

Watches are shipped with SEUR, Fedex or a similar trackable service, depending on destination country. Shipping charges to backers doorstep are included in the pledge (so called incoterms DAP – delivery at place). Customs duties, fees and VAT are not included in the pledge and must be paid separately by the backer, if applicable.

Thanks!

Thank you very much for dedicating some of your time to check this project. We really hope you liked our watches as much as we do and hope you will be able to have your Porthos watch(es) as soon as possible.

To fulfill our objective and make you have your Porthos at an incredible launch price, we need you to share this proyect with both family and friends.

Thanks to Luis Valverde and Regina Serrano for your invaluable help with translations.

Thanks to Pablo Recuenco, Co-Fundador and CEO in Morrison, to advise me.

Thanks to family and friends for the great support you have given me.

And a special thanks to Jesús Evaristo Cano, director of the audiovisual production company Videology, who together with his partner David, have made possible this reality and from whom I have a great friendship.

And thanks to my daughter Anaïs, for making me happy every day of my life.

Risks and challenges

We have already found a very reputable watch factory with 30 years experience that has made the prototypes you have seen above. The communication with the factory have been smooth and fast, this reduces the risks of manufacturing and delivery time substantially. Nevertheless we have set the delivery time in May of 2019 to make sure that all backers will receive their watches on time as promised. This will give us more time to overcome any problems that might occur during manufacturing or delivery.

To ensure that every watch is created to standard and delivered in time, we will be maintaining constant contact with the factory during the entire process of production.

We're going to keep our backers informed during the production process. We will do this with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible, for example when the watch cases are finished, when the dials are printed, during final assembly, when the final presentation boxes are made, etc…
