About this project
I have decided to manufacture a watch that I see to be the next technological step for the auto-mechanical watch.
I used to have quite a number of watches. And although I cherished every single one of them, I felt most of them, which were standard automatic watches needed upgrades suitable for the present.
What about upgrading an auto-mechanical watch with better features electronically? This may not be a novel idea, but I feel that the natural characteristic of an automatic should be enhanced and not just added in as an afterthought.
To execute and develop the features and enhancements I have designed and researched, I would have to have better prototyping tools.
Enter the first stage of my plan, which, is actually paradoxical. I offer you a limited, elegant auto-mechanical watch to purchase that would in turn finance my research and prototyping tools.
The model “Wulfstan” and “Wulfstan Y” would be limited to a total of 250 units, world wide.
- Limited to 275 units.
- Engraved serial number.
- Tried and tested Japanese Citizen Miyota automatic movement.
- Quality Swiss Lume.
- Sapphire glass cover.
- 10 ATM water resistant.
- Stainless steel case and bracelet.
- Booklet( Manual and certificate)
- Day/ Date function
- Screw-down crown.

The watch is 45mm in diameter, 12mm high and has an inner lug width of 24mm.
The accompanying booklet is the manual and certificate. The page with the certificate has the model, serial number and my signature.
Risks and challenges
A problem that I have to overcome when developing and designing watches is not having the right tools to do the research and prototyping. On my list are a high detail 3D Printer, a small CNC machine and a 3D scanner for the watch-case prototypes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
