About

TIMEVERSE

Inspired by time and universe. Caters to fashion forward individuals who appreciate the simple timeless classics and stylish. The Timeverse displays the time around the circumference of the circulating particles, resembling the cosmic time in the galaxy.

CLASSIC

The purest expressions of classic style. Inspired to be origin, aesthetic design that reflects classic traits and timeless forms. Comes in two very noble hues - Gold and Rose Gold.  

Why TIMUS?

Many quality watches are wasted, because they are worn or just out of fashion, and we no longer wear them. BUT IN FACT, the core of the watch - Mechanical Movement is still working well.  Hence, we created a solution to restore our watches. 

Our Concept

A quality automatic watch movement can last up to 20 years and above with proper maintenance, and we are providing an option for you to restore your watch into different design using the existing movement.

How does it work?

Purchase a watch from TIMUS and, when a new model is released in that series, you have the opportunity to send in your old model for it to be stripped back down to its bare bones and have its movement fitted into a new case with an entirely new dial, hands, and strap. We will be providing maintenance to the movement as well to ensure its' quality performance. 

Why would I want to re-case my watch?

You love your watches! We know and we do as well, but what if the exterior part of the watch has worn out? 

You might go straight and buy a new watch, but in TIMUS we treasure the value of watches as a whole, includes the internal mechanism - watch movement. Thus, we are here to provide an alternative for you, watch movement re-casing. 

How much does it cost?

This total revamping process is estimated to cost around 25% of the new watch. The watch movement contains the highest value among the entire watch, which is why we are able to keep the restoration cost low. 

A Greener Environment

We're in partnership with local recycling organizations that assist us with handling old materials that were used during the watch's uplift.

About the Company

TIMUS is a Singapore and Malaysia based company. The name comes from 'TIME+US', and the goal is straight and simple, to create a watch brand that can genuinely fits up to the words 'Sustainable' and 'Durable'.  

Our inspiration comes from one of the founders – Nick Auyong who works in volunteering and environmental related industry. He spends years working as Chief Operating Officer in a global environment MNCs, taking the lead in sustainable development in global environment. Due to his background, he emphasizes a lot on sustainability and durability. Besides, as a watch enthusiast, he realizes that Automatic watch movements have one of the longest lifespans among accessories in the world, but people would give up a watch because of its appearance, probably due to worn out or broken old parts. Hence Nick decided to build a watch brand in hope to bring a new culture into watch industry. 

The thinking behind this concept is clear: A mechanical movement, if well maintained, can last twenty years or more, but the exterior housing of a watch is unlikely to look as good as it did the day it was bought after the same amount of time. More to the point, fashion preferences change over time but we gives customers the option to always stay on trend with intermittent redressing of their timepiece.

 TIMUS is a new start-up and our resources are limited, which is why we’re going through Kickstarter to allow this meaningful concept to go live. We need every bit of supports we could get.

2. Add S$45 for 2 additional Italian Leather Straps.

Risks and challenges

As a new startup, it is always challenging to introduce a new concept to the community and watch industry. But we believe in our brand's quality and service, which will definitely help us in pushing our brand boundaries further.

Our vision is straight and simple, we wanted to cultivate a new culture in the watch industry, where people will better appreciate the value of the entire watch, especially the mechanical movement.
