STRAP UPDATE

Posted by Filippo Cima (Creator)

Dear Backers, Finally the update for the strap!! We have received the samples from Morellato and we are extremely happy of the quality. The racing strap looks amazing. We are wearing them all the week and we can say that they have a perfect fit. The quality is great and it looks amazing on the watch.. so much better. We are really happy to be able to offer them with our watches.

Saffiano has been changed with a new leather, hand made strap. The quality of the leather is premium, incredibly soft. It’s a light strap, very comfortable to wear. It’s fantastic choice and it fits perfectly with our Apollo.

About the delivery. We will be able to deliver the new straps in April, probably mid April. We are going to place the order this week. The replacement for the saffiano is hand finished so it will take time, but we are sure you will be very happy about the quality.

We have selected some straps for the next collection also. These straps will be available to be purchase on our new website (we will launch it in mid March).

These straps has a superior quality compared to the ones for the Kickstarter campaign (which is already really really good). Thanks to the partnership we closed with the supplier we will be able to offer them at almost half of the price.

 IMPORTANT NOTE!!!

We are receiving blackmailing messages about few hungry backers that are not happy with straps and are trying to get some freebies. We are not worried about blackmailing, we are enough open with everyone about suppliers and company choices. 

For the god ones, we want to reassure you that we are doing our best in our possibilities to make all happy. We have shipped the watches directly from China in order to save time for you and to deliver asap. The strap error is costing us a lot of our personal money. the new straps has a cost that nearly triple than before and we have also 470 new shipment to dispatch. So we want to tell you that we care about you and we are doing our best to maintain our word.

Thank you for understanding. Filippo Cima

      What ever happened with the leather straps ? I thought I had ordered a tan leather one but have never received it.
      Watch is really cool but it doesn't deserve the plan black plastic band.
      Tks

      Hi Filippo, I had a problem filling out the survey to make my selections. I emailed a couple of times but didn't get a response. Could you please help as the survey is now closed and I'd like to get my watch. Can you please advise? Thanks a lot.

      Thanks for the update! It's there any way that we can change our strap requests since there is a different strap now?
