Risks and challenges

The major risk is that our goal of reaching 10 000€ is not met.

However, thanks to you Kickstarter community, William L. 1985 has the support of a lot of people: first time backers, customers, watch lovers. We know we can count on you to back our new exciting projects. We are now available in over 600 points of sales across 50 countries and we are confident about the future.

Next, the watches we are launching are complex, equipped with innovative features. There might be some unforeseen issues.

Luckily our suppliers are professional and serious and we have been working with them for several years now. They are used to handling production issues and we are confident that we will deliver on time.

Thank you very much for your support Kickstarter community!

--

Le risque principal de ce projet est de ne pas atteindre l'objectif des 10 000€.

Cependant, et en partie grâce à vous, communauté Kickstarter, William L. 1985 bénéficie de nombreux soutiens : backers de la première heure, fidèles clients ou encore inconditionnels des montres. Nous savons que nous pouvons compter sur vous pour soutenir nos nouveaux projets. Présente dans près de 600 points de vente à travers plus de 50 pays, la marque s'est aujourd'hui faite une place dans le paysage horloger mondial et nous sommes très optimistes pour l'avenir.

Cela dit, les montres que nous lançons sont complexes et innovantes. Et il pourrait y avoir des complications non-anticipées.

Par chance, nos fournisseurs, avec lesquels nous travaillons maintenant depuis plusieurs années, sont sérieux et très professionnels. Habitués à gérer toutes sortes de délais de production, ils sauront répondre rapidement à la moindre problématique et nous sommes de notre côté très confiants quant à notre capacité à respecter les échéances de livraison.

Communauté Kickstarter, merci beaucoup pour votre soutien !
