Combining simplicity with class and affordability.

Our Story

Our inspiration is our father, who taught us that being a gentleman was the only way to be. Growing up, class and sophistication has always been something that has been important to us. We wanted to build something based on the person who has influenced us the most. FREEBODY is created to carry on our fathers vision of simplicity, elegance and class.  

The Design Process

Over the years we have all collected several watches, and although we have always appreciated the different styles there was always an aspect which we would do differently. Years of searching for the "ideal" timepiece we decided who better design our ideal watch than ourselves.  We discussed the main aspects of a timepiece that we love and narrowed it down to 3 main points ; A big face, slim design, and a minimal look. After 18 months of going through every single aspect of the design process we were able to start our classic KR series collection.  These watches capture the brand FREEBODY as a whole, and are a strong representation of what we love in a watch.

Risks and challenges

With all product design projects, the greatest risk is in manufacturing. There are countless variables to consider and wrenches that are thrown in along with way. We are far enough along in the process, however, that these risks are relatively low.

A strong, working relationship has been developed with the manufacturer as we have spent months working with them. CAD drawings are all ready and confirmed via samples which would mean that production can begin immediately.

If somewhere along the way we find that there is a setback in production, or that we cannot make the timeline, we will be as transparent as possible to keep all backers informed.

We want to make FREEBODY watches a long-lasting brand of affordable luxury. We genuinely love watches and producing timepieces is our dream. We will do whatever it takes to fulfil our promises and to deliver watches that will exceed our backers’ expectations!
