What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

316L Stainless Steel

Our case, case back, clasp, crown, and quick release spring bar pin are all made from 316L stainless steel which is a steel alloy that is known for is strength and corrosion resistance. The same steel is used in jet engines and military tanks.

Sapphire Crystal

Our watch crystals are made from Sapphire which is a top of the line crystal and is know for its scratch and shatter resistance. Sapphire is next to diamond on the hardness scale and is rated a 9 out of 10 for hardness.

Swiss Movement

For the movements, the heart of the watch, we partnered with a Swiss company called Ronda. Ronda has a long track record and reputation of offering reliable, accurate, and quality timepieces.

 

Top Grain Italian Leather

Our straps are made from top grain Italian leather; the best you can get. The are vegetable tanned which allows them to wear naturally over time. The more you wear them, the more comfortable they get.

All Natural, Responsibly Sourced Wood or Bamboo

Our watch dials are made from all natural wood or bamboo. Our wood is responsibly sourced and replenished. We use wood because it makes each individual watch unique. Each wood grain pattern is different from the last. We love promoting individuality.

 

Quick Release Spring Bar Pin

Each watch comes with a quick release spring bar pin wich makes changing bands quick and simple. Each watch will also come with an extra silicone sports band for water and sporting activities.

 10ATM or 100 Meter Water Resistance Rating

The watches are rated at 10ATM or 100M water resitance so you'll never have to worry about water damage. 

 

 

We started our design process with the goal of a good looking wood and stainless steel hybrid watch. We completed our first round of prototypes but after putting them on, we knew we had a long way to go. They looked great but they didn't fit our reputation of offering lightweight and comfortable watches.

We spent over a year researching and testing ways to keep the watches lightweight and comfortable while using stronger and more durable materials like stainless steel, sapphire, and Swiss movements. Three designs and countless samples later, we nailed it.

25% More Mobility Than Traditional Watches

Unrestricted mobility
Unrestricted mobility

Traditional flat cases restrict your wrists natural movements. Our ergonomic case design rises from the movement at a 30 degree angle which matches the natural concave of your wrist. This provides your wrist with a comfortable 100% range of motion.

 While Calvin was not involved in the design or manufacturing of these watches, he was very instrumental in founding Luno. When we started designing our first line of watches over 2 years ago, Calvin was very helpful in answering questions, and giving feedback/suggestions. We wouldn't be here today without the passion he instilled in me (Bo) and the help he offered while we were starting. 

Luno Lifestyle

At Luno Wear we work hard and we play hard. We're students, fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, friends, and everything in between. Our watches are designed to work well in whatever life throws our way.

 A to Z, Raw and Uncut: 

These are photos taken throughout the design and manufacturing process. You will see many variations of the case designs, dial style, color schemes, leather types, etc. This exemplifies the trial and error period of our design process.  

 

 

Risks and challenges

We know as well as you do that crowdfunding has a wide variety of challenges. From timeline setbacks to quality control issues- there is a lot that can go wrong with your first round of production.

Luno Wear was born on crowdfunding and we have already been through this process. Two years ago we successfully launched our first line of watches. We sent thousands of watches all around the globe. Since then, we've manufactured and shipped thousands more.

We know what to expect as far as time frame goes. We have strict policies and procedures surrounding quality control. We have established relationships with material suppliers, production facilities, shipping carriers, and fulfillment centers. While unexpected issues are an unfortunate possibility, we have the experience and resources to quickly and effectively solve any issues, should it arise.

We promise to do everything we can to ensure that your watches are made to the highest standards of quality and that you receive your watches on time.
