“LEVILLE is inspired by the words of Luxury and Vision, the meaning of ‘The City’ in French. We strive to create luxury timepieces by combining traditional craftsmanship and innovative design to all city lifestylers.
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 worldwide.
Our ambition is to create our very own brand, which we can share with watch enthusiasts around the globe. Through “LEVILLE”, 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 traditional 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.
We believe that every city has its own uniqueness. It represents the best of its own culture, values and traditions. Our designer curates this authentic collection by combining traditional craftsmanship and innovative design for all cities. We have worked tirelessly to ensure every detail of our watch has been perfected and made to the most premium quality in the world.
LEVILLE introduces the first “Régulateur collection” to all city lifestylers! The watch is a perfect union of modern and tradition, of technology and simplicity, and inspired by vintage regulator watches. Featuring a beautifully curved case, sapphire crystal and a regulator dial, we also adopt a reputable Japanese quartz movement and multi-dials display for extreme precision time readout. In addition, we offer interchangeable Italian calf leather strap, Nato strap and Milanese strap, which are perfect for all occasions for both men and women.
What is the regulator watch?
The regulator clock is a historic complication originally designed to provide the accurate time readout for the watch precision adjustment. The first of the regulator pocket watch issued in the middle of the 18th Century. A regulator dial design features the hour and minute hand on separate axes and subdials thus allowing the most accurate time readout at any moment, unlike regular watches where the hour and minute hands fully cover each other every single hour.
Initially, LEVILLE “Régulateur collection” will offer you 3 color combinations for men and 3 color combinations for women to choose from. All watches are equipped with a Japanese quartz movement and sapphire crystal.
You will be able to choose the case color and strap color after the campaign conclusion.

To differentiate the design from huge fashion watches that are going out in same, the dial design finds inspiration from the 18-century regulator dial display which the seconds, minutes and hours indication are separated into sub-dials and combined with the modern minimal design.
The base of the dial is decorated with matt-sandblasted finishing, giving it a dedicated texture effect. The indicators are printed in elegance Arabic numerals and tracks and displayed by the baton-shaped hands. To improve the design features and legibility of the time telling, we designed a dice with red halo mark which floats over the arcs to encircle the minutes.
The main dial is used to indicate minutes and seconds. The 24 Hours and date are relegated to recessed sub-dials at 7 o’clock and 4 o’clock, respectively. The day is indicated by the retrograde dial design at 10 o’clock.
In the LEVILLE “Regulateur collection”, sports a circular case with a curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a flat sapphire crystal on the front and a fine circular brush finishing caseback from the rear, the crown is located at 4’clock providing comfort, and easy ability for adjusting the watch.
Viewed from the side, the arched bezel ring joins the case back flawlessly through a smooth curved surface. The streamlined case is more than just an elegant design feature – it also allows for a slimmer profile.
The metal parts are made from 316L stainless steel, which translates to greater corrosion resistance and durability in high temperatures.

The advantages of Quartz Movement
1. Much accurate timing compare with any mechanical movement (Quartz +/- 15s per month, Mechanical +/- 15s per day)
2. Quartz movement needs no winding- Power by the battery
3. Thinner watch case - Quartz movement normally thinner than the mechanical movement.
4. Low maintenance cost
We believe that a high quality, exclusive, a well-designed watch should come in premium packaging. You will feel satisfied when you receive your watches.
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 request where you can indicate your choice of watch colors and strap colors. At that time, you can also 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 May 2019. 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 2 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. 5ATM Water resistance Diving, showering, bathing, taking a jacuzzi or sauna, or any submersion in water whilst wearing your watch should be avoided
2. Temperature Your watch works with stable accuracy in a temperature range of 5°C (41°F) to 35°C (95°F). Temperatures over 60°C/140°F (50°C/122°F for some calibres) may cause battery leakage or shorten the life of the battery (Quartz Watch Only).
3. Shock and Vibration Light activities will not affect your watch, but be careful not to drop it or hit it against hard surfaces, which could cause damage.
4. Magnetism Your watch will be adversely affected by strong magnetism, so avoid close contact with magnetic objects. (In the case of a quartz / mechanical watch, normal accuracy will return once the watch is moved away from the magnetic field.)
5. Chemicals Be careful not to expose your watch to solvents (e.g. alcohol and petrol), cosmetic sprays, detergents, adhesives or paints. These could cause the case, bracelet, etc to deteriorate or become discoloured or damaged.
6. Care of Case and Bracelet To prevent possible corrosion of the case and bracelet caused by dust and moisture, wipe them regularly with a soft, dry cloth.
The more details of the watches care and maintenance will mark in the instruction manual and come with your selected watches.

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.
