About

Important  communication: 

We have made this decision because we feel crowdfunding may not be the best way to bring Passo to life.

That being said, we have made a difficult decision to cancel our Kickstarter campaign.

The Passo Watch is a timepiece that combines Italy’s trendsetting design with Switzerland's renowned watch craftsmanship. With a completely custom design, stainless steel casing, and automatic movement mechanism, Passo elevates your style while delivering a watch that’s as uniquely built as you are.

This line of Passo Watch is designed by award-winning Italian designer Odoardo Fioravanti and carries no standard parts, unlike many other watches. This beautiful combination makes Passo Watch a one-of-a-kind accessory perfect to accentuate style, confidence, and status.

                          

The Passo Watch is exclusively designed by award-winning Italian designer Odoardo Fioravanti, whose work has included projects for Land Rover, Toshiba, Pedrali and Invicta. The watch’s design is inspired by the sharp curves of the Alpine valleys and the majestic, timeless elegance of the glaciers of Switzerland. Feel confident knowing that wearing a Passo Watch elevates your style with an unparalleled and trendsetting timepiece.

Every single piece except the movement inside of a Passo Watch is completely custom to the exquisite Italian design that it’s inspired from. Because of its design, the elements that make up a Passo Watch aren’t standard pieces like you’ll find in other watches; they’re completely exclusive and as uniquely built as you are.

PASSO is a “Swiss made” genuine watch, assembled with the best materials of the Swiss watch industry, allowing you to treasure this handcrafted timepiece for generations. Each watch is built with reinforced stainless steel casing and bezel, a water resistance of up to 50m, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, and a stainless steel metal band for durability. It’s a watch that executes Swiss precision and technology with Italian design and style.  

Every single PASSO Glacier watch will be tested on water resistance and precision of the mechanism. PASSO is an independent manufacturer based in Switzerland and will produce the watch according to law prescriptions and can therefore apply the “Swiss made” mark. All tests will be performed internally in his laboratories, and the results proof will be included with the watch pack.

Assembled with an automatic movement, Passo harnesses energy through the natural motion of your wrist and does not require you to wind up the watch. To complement its mechanics, the movement is a genuine Swiss-made Sellita SW200, making it one of the most durable movements in the industry.

Each Passo watch is hand crafted and custom built to last for generations. Because we believe timepieces like ours should be exclusive and not mass produced, each Passo watch sold through our Kickstarter campaign will be a limited edition watch, and we will limit them to 999 pieces.

On the back of each Passo watch, there will be an engraving marking its exclusivity: Kickstarter - Founder Edition 2018.

You will feel confident knowing that your Passo timepiece is something that is truly one of a kind.

  
          
                          

Passo was founded with the spirit of Italian design and Swiss precision and technology to create a watch that’s as unique as you are.

We started from one simple word: Passo. It’s an Italian word that indicates the measure of a mechanism, as well as the pass that joins two sides of a mountain-- Italy & Switzerland.

You deserve a timepiece that's built as uniquely as you are, and that was our mission: to provide you with a watch that not only accentuates your style and personality, but that communicates the story of two cultures creating one beautiful, custom watch.

We will continue to blend Swiss made precision and Italian style design in future models here at Passo, but with unique characteristics:

  • Every watch will be designed by a different designer (we have already some ideas about the next designers!)
  • Every watch will have a different complication (grand data, chrono, power reserve)
  • We will be producing one to two collections per year
  • For every collection we will have different styles of Passo watches (just as the Glacier has four styles). This is because we want our watch to be an element of design and work of art, just like the designers had imagined them.

This campaign came out of the mission of two friends who wanted to create a watch that tells the story of two cultures, Italy & Switzerland; a totally "designer" watch with all the components custom made instead of choosing from a catalog. This radical choice requires a minimum quantity of production and therefore requires an initial investment. An innovative project like Passo requires an equally innovative form of financing, so we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to give the world a completely custom watch that conveys the best of both worlds of the style and watch industry.

The funds will cover everything we need to deliver your own unique Passo Watch right to your doorstep. Every dollar counts towards crafting an exquisitely designed and high quality watch to last for generations.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Passo Watch a reality.

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase a Passo Watch, if you’re a supporter of Passo, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!

    

Risks and challenges

There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to produce and have taken all necessary measures. We have a highly qualified team and have partnered with a leading Swiss watchmaker. We just need your help to bring Passo Watch to life!

We’re completely prepared to deliver Passo Watch to your home, and we have the manpower to make it happen. As the journey to launch Passo Watch develops, you’ll always be in the loop with our regular updates.
