About

We're very excited to be back with the Kickstarter Community to offer two unique and original watch designs; The NAV-03 Horizon & Directional Gyro.

Trintec Industries Inc. was founded in 1984 and is well known among watch enthusiasts and pilots everywhere. We have been creating projects on Kickstarter since 2014 and have been extremely fortunate to have acquired a very loyal following during that time span. We truly enjoy the relationships we have developed with our Backers over the last few years. For those of you who are unfamiliar with our Kickstarter history, please have a look at our previous campaigns. We have successfully funded and completed five previous watch projects.

These two new Watch Designs are very dear to me. I have spent several years  tweaking and perfecting both designs to reflect as closely as possible the flight instruments they are inspired by. These watches are a reinterpretation of two of our original watch designs produced in 1993. Both watches are among the most unique I've ever created.

The NAV-03 Series are inspired by primary flight instruments which can be found in virtually every aircraft cockpit. Every pilot would be very familiar with the use and importance of the two instruments these watches are inspired by.

My objective has always been to capture the essence of original flight instruments as closely as possible. It was very important to retain the functionality required for a practical wrist watch, without sacrificing the primary design objectives of the project.

Both watches are available in a black PVD sandblasted or stainless steel finish. With the addition of the stainless steel finish, we are breaking with tradition to offer a new twist to our already popular Instrument Inspired Watch Series. 

These watches won’t just look great on your wrist they are packed with quality components and features that are usually only found on watches costing significantly more.

The NAV-03 Directional Gyro is a Single-Handed Watch. Below is an animation and video to help you understand how the watch works. All small dial markers indicate 5-minute intervals while all larger dial markers are indicating 15-minute intervals.

We are experienced Kickstarter creators. We have successfully funded and delivered five previous Watch Campaigns. Our backers can be confident that we have a history of delivering the rewards we promise. Our supplier has over 20 years of experience in the watch manufacturing business but we are fully aware that there can be many unforeseen delays in the production process. We always do our absolute best to identify any problems that may arise at the early stages of production. We depend on more than a dozen suppliers to bring our projects together, if any component is not up to our standards it goes back to the manufacturer until it meets our approval. All watches will be inspected, tested and packaged in Canada before delivery.

You are responsible for any duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region.

Risks and challenges

Having successfully funded and delivered on seven previous Kickstarter Campaigns we are fully aware of the challenges that present themselves during the fulfilment phase of a project.

Having also backed numerous campaigns, we have experienced both sides of funding process. We are fully aware of the frustration backers feel when things don’t go as promised especially when compounded by a lack of communication. We promise to keep our backers up to date throughout the Campaign and especially during the fulfilment process.

Trintec Industries Inc. has been in business since 1984 manufacturing and producing aviation inspired clocks and watches for more than 35 years.

We will be using a company that has a proven track record with us and a 20 year history in the watch manufacturing business.

Even so, there can always be hiccups when it comes to production and on time delivery is always the biggest challenge. We always insist on approving final samples before the production run goes into full swing to try to catch any issues that we are not satisfied with and solve any problems before delivery.

If our campaign is successful we will keep all our backers up to date with the production and delivery schedule.
