About

 What is Covair?

In short, Covair makes classic timepieces with a twist--all of our watches are completely interchangeable.

With Covair, you can easily rotate in and out different colors and styles.

And we made straps with quick-change clips, so you can painlessly go from a leather band to a stainless steel bracelet in just a few seconds.

The end result is a product that can adjust to your outfit and activity, not sit on the sidelines if it doesn't match or look right.

How does the Covair Watch work?

The Covair inserts lock into the watch base using a combination of strategically placed magnets and an O-ring. We've exhaustingly tested the magnet positions to make sure they don't effect the time or movement in any way.

The Covair inserts pop in and out of the of the base with ease, but once locked in, they're extremely secure. 

What are the quick-change clips?

We were frustrated by the difficult and time consuming process of changing traditional watch straps, so we did something about it.

Our quick-change clips latch on and off the Covair watch base with extreme ease and have met vigorous standards for strength.

What do I get?

We kept things ultra-simple, offering just one reward--our Covair Watch Starter Kit.

 It comes with the watch base, the Covair Tuxedo insert in white, the Covair Rover insert in grey, our genuine leather strap with quick-change clips in brown, our stainless steel bracelet with quick-change clips, and our NATO style strap in grey. Our watches are powered by a Japanese Quartz movement and are 40mm in size.

This will normally retail for $255 but we're making it available to Kickstarter backers at a special price.

What's the timeline for this?

We made an infographic that quickly explains the work we've already done and when you should expect your Covair Starter Kit in the mail.

What's next?

We're currently developing a dive watch with rotating bezel insert, a vintage-inspired watch insert, and a smart watch with fitness tracking insert. Our post-Kickstarter focus is on providing an entire marketplace of watch inserts with various colors for each style, so you can easily upgrade your wrist without having to buy an entirely new timepiece. Here's an example of an alternative Covair Starter Kit--something we may offer as an option later on.

Risks and challenges

We are planning and prepared to start full-scale production of the Covair Starter Kit as soon as this campaign closes.

We have produced dozens of products over the years and have extensive experience in manufacturing and fulfillment. We will do everything in our power to produce and ship products of the highest quality but are aware that creating and delivering a product can sometimes lead to unexpected hiccups.

We have developed a fantastic relationship with a manufacturing partner and have a contingency plan for every step of the process in case of a bump in the road.

We plan to keep our backers updated as often as possible with photos and news on the process and expected delivery.
