About this project
By popular request, We are very pleased to bring you our sixth campaign and fourth watch project on Kickstarter! Designed by pilots, for pilots!
The newest addition to our CoPilot Series;
The CoPilot GMT Quartz Aviator Watch - Take it on a Test Flight or on a Sunday Drive!
All military, air traffic control and international flight operations are conducted in one time zone. This time zone is often referred to as ZULU time, GMT or UTC time. This watch has the ability to display time in both GMT and Local time zones simultaneously. The second zone may be set to any other time zone in the world while local time is displayed in the traditional manner. The second time zone is displayed using a separate hand which can be set independently. This is particularly useful for pilots who need to keep track of GMT time or UTC time.
If you're not a pilot, but a seasoned traveler, this watch will become a very useful companion as you jet across multiple time zones. The second time zone can be used to keep track of time back at home while GMT/ZULU time is displayed using the triangular shaped RED hand. This hand indicates time in the second time zone using the 24 hour rotating bezel.
The new CoPilot GMT Aviator Wrist Watch is powered by a reliable Swiss made Ronda 515-24 Quartz movement. Having experience using this movement since 2010 in several watch designs, we are confident this watch will bring you many years of reliable service.
Crafted from solid 316L stainless steel with a sandblasted finish, the new CoPilot GMT will look great on your wrist no matter what the challenge!
We are seeking $10,000 CAD in funding from our Kickstarter Backers to bring this project to reality. Our backers will receive a generous discount off the retail price of this watch and will be the first to have it on their wrists. This watch will retail for $380.00 USD.
Take advantage of our great EARLY BIRD rewards which start at $169.00 USD. All watches ship on a black rubber strap.
You will have the option to choose your watch finish (black or stainless) once we send out the surveys after completion of a successful campaign.
FREE NORTH AMERICAN SHIPPING ON ALL REWARDS! International shipping is offered at a very reasonable cost of $25.00 USD per watch anywhere in the world, or $35.00 USD for combo rewards!
After gaining experience with three previous Kickstarter Watch Projects, our backers can be confident that we have a history of delivering the rewards we promise. We have partnered with a dependable factory with over 20 years of experience in the watch manufacturing business. We are fully aware that there can be many unforeseen delays in the production process, but we always do our best to identify any problems that may arise at the early stages of production. We depend on more than a dozen suppliers to bring this project together and we are very diligent in the quality control process. If any component is not up to our standards it goes back to the manufacturer until it meets our approval. We expect to receive the watches here at our office in Ajax, Ontario, Canada sometime in August. All watches will be inspected, tested and packaged here in Canada before delivery.

Risks and challenges
Having successfully funded and delivered on five previous Kickstarter campaigns we are fully aware of the challenges that present themselves during the fulfillment phase of a campaign.
We have backed numerous campaigns, so we have experienced both sides of the equation. We are fully aware of the frustration backers feel when things don’t go as promised.
Trintec Industries Inc. has been in business since 1984 manufacturing and producing aviation inspired clocks and watches for more than 30 years.
This is our sixth Kickstarter Campaign so we have a good understanding of the process involved in delivering on the promises we make in our campaigns.
We have proven to be reliable when it comes to delivering rewards to our backers so please review our past projects if you have any concerns.
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 schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
