About

A watch is a piece of architecture that you can wear. Combining form and function in design, precision in the manufacturing, and accuracy in timing, it should come as nearly no surprise that architecture and watchmaking could go together. We often speak of beautiful buildings and structures, and we often swoon about incredible timepieces and complications. Few watchmakers have tried to bring the two worlds together.

Inspired quite literally by the aesthetics of skyscraper and architectural landmarks,  incorporating force and strength into elements of our design. MARBONNI introduces the “Architect collection” to all watch-addicts! Our designer curates this collection by translating the architectural aesthetics into grand modern design with historical watchmaking craftsmanship and inexhaustible creativity. The exquisite architectural dial design at its core, powered with time-tested multi-function automatic movement and the well-proportioned cases coupled with the domed mineral crystal mirror. We also offer genuine Italian calf leather strap with Croco pattern for you to choose from.


For decades, its either you have to spend a lot of money to purchase that luxury, high quality timepiece or forced to buy cheap replicas or low quality watches. Today, MARBONNI is here to solve that problem.

We are offering directly via Kickstarter, we are able to cut out the retail channel, middlemen markups, brand exclusivity/scarcity, and offer a US 129 automatic multi-function watch with the most premium materials and grand modern design watch.

Seriously, try to find a better watch for a better price, and we’ll match it.

                                         Welcome to our 12th Kickstarter Campaign!

LENVINO Watch Co. was started in 2017 Jan, a group of watch-addicts with the passion and constancy of the traditional watch craftsmanship. We believe that the most timeless and desirable timepiece must be the traditional one. We would like to awaken people’s mind about the core function of a watch, thus create our brands.

In 2017 Dec LENVINO Watch Co. launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the World’s First Minimalist Design Rectangular Tourbillon Watch. After 40 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 427,860. The result is the most backed tourbillon project on Kickstarter history that year. In 2018 April, we returns to Kickstarter to launch our second project “US$149 Japan Automatic Vintage Racing Watch”. After 30 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 1,344,752. It was such a great success and surprise result for us.

Since then we’ve launched 12 projects on Kickstarter and totally funded over 3 Million worldwide. All products are successfully delivered to the backers and received positive comments.

With the passion of the previous projects. We returns to Kickstarter to introduce the new project to you, the first project of our sub-brand MARBONNI, the “Architect Collection”

“MARBONNI” integrate the elements of art, creation and innovation. We strive to create luxury timepieces by translating the architectural aesthetics into grand modern design with historical watchmaking craftsmanship and inexhaustible creativity.

Initially, MARBONNI “Architect Collection” will offer you 4 color combinations of Italian leather strap with croco pattern and 2 color combinations of solid stainless steel for you to choose from. All watches are equipped with an automatic movement and domed mineral crystal.

You will be able to choose the design variants during the funding period.

You will be able to choose the design variants during the funding period.

To make it special from huge luxury watches that are going out in same, the watch finds inspiration in the aesthetics of skyscraper and architectural landmarks, incorporating force and strength into elements to our design.

The immediate focal point of this watch is the massive sectorial architectural bridges which sit on the opposite each other of the dial. The hands are passing through under the bridges in every revolution that increase the stereo perception of the dial design. The colour of the bridges is matched on the outline of the sub-dial and the markings on the hour track. The base of the dial is decorated with the pinwheel guilloche pattern, giving it a grained texture effect.

The Day and night indicator is located at 6 o’ clocks on the dial and surrounded by 24 hours marks. The day and month indicators are relegated to recessed sub-dials at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock, respectively.

The time is displayed by the Sword Hands and painted with Super-LumiNova, large and legible enough for ease of time reading in the dark.

In the MARBONNI “Architect collection” features a well proportional case with curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a domed mineral crystal on the front and a screw-down exhibition case back from the rear, allowing you to enjoy every motion of the movement.

Viewed from the side, the curved bezel ring joins the case back flawlessly through a mirror polishing surface. The streamlined case is more than just an elegant design feature – it also allows for a slimmer profile.

The case that houses it is a very wearable 43 mm-wide and 14.8mm at its highest point. It is water resistant to 30 meters. The metal parts are made from 316L stainless steel, which translates to greater corrosion resistance and durability in high temperatures.

Our straps are made from genuine Italian calf leather with Croco pattern. The strap will also come with the polished 316L stainless steel buckles and engraved with our brand name “MARBONNI”. The straps have a width of 20mm x 18 mm for gents, a unisex functional length suitable for most customers, and 9 holes for adjustment.

They are available in two different colors (1) Black (2) Brown and (3) Chestnut Brown 

Our solid bracelet are made from 316L stainless steel with fine satin brushed surface finishing and come with an adjustable links which can be adjust for every wrist size by our provided tools and the double push buttons engraved with our brand name “MARBONNI”.

They are available in two different plating colors: (1) Silver and (2) All Black

The MARBONNI "Architect Collection" in powered  by an in-house tuning LT28 self-winding mechanical movement, with a day & night, day and month indicators, power reserve of approx. 40 hours and mechanisms gleam with 22 jewels as it vibrates at 21,600 beats per hour. Its providing accurate and reliable time-keeping functionality to this collection.

We believe that a high quality, exclusive, well-designed watch should come in premium packaging. You will feel satisfied when you receive your order.


1. Hand Sketch and Concept Generation Process

At the first step of the product development procedure is the hand sketch and concept generation process. After the marketing research, we targeted to design a traditional watch which are combined with the architectural aesthetics and historical watchmaking craftsmanship.

2. Graphic Design Process

After the hand sketch and concept generation process, our designer using the most popular graphic design software (Illustrator) to figure out the watch design and formulate the color combinations of the whole series.

3.  Computer Aided Design Process ( 2D Technical Drawing & 3D Modelling)

After confirming all the dimensions from the 2D technical Drawings, we have to go to the 3D computer aided design process by using the 3D modeling and simulation software to build the watch structure in actual dimensions and optimizing the watch structure by using different types of simulation tests e.g. stress test, thermal test and drop test.

4.Rapid-prototyping and Working Prototype

Our manufacturer using the rapid prototyping machine to produce an actual size touchable sample to make sure the watch size and the coordination of each watch parts, it is the most time-efficient and cost-saving way to evaluate all sizes and dimensions.

Confirmed all the dimensions and sizes are correct by our engineering manager.  Our manufacturer using the CNC machine to create the stainless steel case sample and produce all watch parts samples e.g. strap, dial and hands then send back to us after assemble to be a working prototype.

5. Prototype Testing

The final stage before starting the Kickstarter campaign is the sample testing. In order to ensure the watches well functioned, our engineering manager will rigorously test all watches, e.g. through air pressure water resistance test, movement winding test and movement timing test etc.

Our partnered manufacturer follows strict procedures to ensure the quality of the watches they produce. Generally, those procedures can be divided into three parts: Technical Control Check, Quality Assurance Check and Final Quality Check.

During the Technical Control Check, a watch engineer will ensure the watches are in the safety structure from the technical drawing to predict and avoid the potential risks.

For the Quality Assurance Check, the QA engineer will ensure that the dimensions of each individual component are 100% identical to the technical drawings and that all components pass the QA test, e.g. drop test and movement test.

For the Final Quality Check, the final QC engineer will rigorously test all watches, e.g. through water resistance and plating tests. In order to ensure the watches well functioned, all should pass the 240 hours burn-in test before dispatching the products to customers.

Select the desired reward option, followed by your shipping destination. Upon conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign, we will send out a survey and you can confirm your shipping address and other relevant details with us.


Actually, our watches are offering with a perfect specification and rewards package in this price range. We still thinking about this issue. Will have an updated soon.

We will ship the watches worldwide. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable in your region.

We expect to ship the orders from Jan 2020. While we will make every effort to ship your orders on time, we ask for your understanding that slight delays in production may be possible. We will keep you informed of any changes as they arise.

All of our watches will come with a 1 years international warranty. The warranty will cover all parts against manufacturer defects, for which the watch will be repaired or exchanged free of charge.

1. Keep your watch wound. Winding keeps the watch working, spreads the lubricants and the accuracy should be best with a fully wound watch.

2. Please avoid any Bumps and Shocks of the watches. Shocks can damage any watch mechanism, scratches to the case or break the mirror. Remember your watch is a mechanical watch consisted of more than hundreds tiny parts.

3. Cleaning If your watch has become dirty, the best way to clean it is with a soft damp cloth.

4. 3ATM Water resistance. Applicable for swimming, washing hands and wind splashing. Diving, showering, bathing, taking a jacuzzi or sauna, or any submersion in deep water whilst wearing your watch should be avoided.

The more details of the watches care and maintenance will mark in the instruction manual and come with your selected watches.


We are a group of watch-addicts who have already worked in the Hong Kong watch industry for over 28 years. We specialized in the design and manufacturing of high quality quartz and automatic watches. We have established good relationships with the world’s leading watch manufacturers specializing in luxury watches for high-end brands that retail for over US$1,000, as well as renowned watch companies in the retail market with over 400 chain stores world-wide

Our ambition is to create our very own brand, which we can share with watch enthusiasts around the globe. Through “MARBONNI”, we are offering high-quality products with unique and exclusive designs comparable to watches at department stores and luxury brands, but at only a fraction of their retail price.

We want to share our love for watches with you. But in order to do that, we need more than just having innovative and tradition designs, quality support from a world leading manufacturing partner, and 28 years of industry experience. Your support will be instrumental in helping us achieve our dream, and we are confident you will be impressed with the design, workmanship and value that our watches offer.

Risks and challenges

Although we are new on Kickstarter, we have over 28 years of solid experience in the watchmaking industry. We are aware that our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues. However, we are confident that our professional manufacturing partners can help us minimize the potential risks by deploying strict quality controls during the manufacturing process.

Our manufacturers stand ready to begin production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal. Including the time needed to acquire the necessary parts, assemble the watches and perform all necessary checks, we anticipate that the first batch of orders will be delivered to you in about 4 months’ time from start of production.

We will, of course, keep you updated on our progress throughout.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the project from the start and to all our backers.
