Hi my name is DJ Heider and I am the creator of the Heitis Watch Company.  Here at HEITIS, we started out with a passion for timepieces and collecting watches. As a lot of you probably know a nice watch is pretty expensive. Other watches with comparable specifications can retail for over $500 dollars. With that being said, we started to build watches and quickly realized we could make quality, classic designs at affordable prices... HEITIS was born!  

​We set out to use quality components that we would want in our own watches, Swiss made Ronda Movements, 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel for cases and buckles and scratch resistant Sapphire Crystals just to name a few... ​ I hope that our passion for timepieces shows in our work, materials and designs. Each watch was carefully made with timeless etiquette in mind.

The HEITIS AVIATOR is inspired by the clean look of altimeters and other cockpit instruments, which are ergonomically designed to facilitate reading both in daylight or in the dark, with large digits and bold hands that have a super lume coating, this sturdy yet elegant watch leaves quite an impression. It is guaranteed to draw compliments. The movement is manufactured by Ronda, a renowned movement manufacturer, in Switzerland. With a 44m diameter, solid surgical grade 316L stainless steel case, and genuine leather band with solid stainless steel butterfly clasp buckle, this elegant watch has a notable presence. On top of all that it lies beneath a Sapphire Crystal with AR coating.

The perfect blend of function and style, this men's timepiece is constructed with a Sapphire Crystal and a OS20 Chronograph Movement. This Movement has all functioning sub-dials unlike fashion brand watches that are just for show. Each sub-dial has a function: one for seconds, minutes and hours. This movement also has a stop watch feature and Tachymeter function.The Genuine Leather band & Stainless Steel mesh bracelet round out the impressive list of features.

The "Classic"... the design is truly elegant.  The HEITIS CLASSIC mens timepiece features a 316L Surgical Stainless Steel case with a scratch-proof Sapphire Crystal and Genuine Leather strap. This classic-designed timepiece has a minimalist dial with easy to read hour markers, and a dedicated sub-dial for the seconds hand.

Whether your wearing a suit at the office or having a casual weekend, this watch is a versatile option.

MATERIALS - 316L STAINLESS STEEL 

316L Stainless Steel is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion. Its is easy to buff and polish. 316L is also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201 or 304L. With Molybdenum added, it gives 316L a better overall corrosion-resistant property than 304L. Therefore the material is ideal for a great watch case.

MATERIALS - SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

Did you know sapphire crystal is not really a glass, rather a synthetically made crystal? It has superb transparency and is extraordinarily scratch-resistant. To give some comparison, sapphire has a value of 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Diamond is a 10! That is why you will usually find sapphire crystal on more expensive luxury watches. Now you can find them on Heitis watches at an affordable price.

MATERIALS - QUALITY SWISS RONDA MOVMENTS & OS20 CHRONOGRAPHS 

THE HEARTBEAT OF A WATCH.. Time is our constant companion. But even the most extravagant watch needs a reliable movement to keep it in regular motion. Switzerland has earned itself an enviable reputation as a manufacturer of the finest watch movements. Ronda has been committed to time for decades now and that is why we chose to use their high quality movements. Their quartz movements tick away in a vast range of watches from the elegant to the sporty, and in exclusive timepieces produced for the luxury market sector. Now you can have the same luxury movement in a Heitis watch at an unbelievable value.  

We also use the OS20 movement in the Heitis Chronograph. It is unbelievably well built and reliable. It features Powercell Saving Reset Mechanism (PSRM) Over-loading Compensation Device (OLCD) and Digital Frequency Control (DFC) for time adjustment. It also features fully functional subdials, Chronograph minute hand, second hand, 24 hour hand, tachymeter and date function.

 GENUINE LEATHER STRAPS WITH QUICK CHANGE FEATURE 

Here at Heitis Watch Company individuality matters. So we have used a nice quality Genuine Leather Strap that is soft and comfortable. We have also equipped the straps with a quick change function so you can change the look of your watch in seconds. No tools required, just use your finger tip to easily change your strap.

SWISS SUPER LUMINOUS

Super-LumiNova is a strontium aluminate based non-radioactive and nontoxic photoluminescent or afterglow pigment used for illuminating markings on watch dials, hands and bezels, etc.   The material works on the principle of “phosphorescence” and is charged through exposure to light. It is non-radioactive and slowly decreases in brightness until recharged again.

STRETCH GOAL !!!!  I am excited to announce that I have partnered with AGUE TRADING CO to bring a really nice stretch goal to the backers.  If we reach $35,000 in funding on this project every backer will receive an Italian Leather Strap for their watch or watches purchased through the Kickstarter campaign!! These straps are an awesome way to easily put a new strap and look on your watch very quickly...I will even throw in a few extra spring bars so you don't have to worry about getting them on your own. Check out the picture below to see the straps (Its a $20.00 value that i would love to be able to throw in for you). So lets get to the $30,000 goal! Help spread the word so everyone can get their Stretch goal reward. 

The picture below is the actual strap you will receive if we reach our stretch goal.  I will send out a survey to backers and see which color option is the most popular between brown and black and the color choice winner of the survey will be the strap color you will recieve.

Risks and challenges

Creating and delivering a new product may come with unexpected delays or setbacks. I have strong relationships and a history of working hard with a reliable supply chain. This gives me the confidence to be able to say that i have minimized these risks for myself and ultimately you the customers.

You have my word that i will provide complete transparency and inform backers every step of the way.

I'll update you as much as humanly possible about the progress, and if there are any delays, I'll let you know ASAP!

After all is said and done, I will deliver the best quality timepieces to each and every one of my backers.

Thank-you so much!
