At BOLDR, we’re dedicated to building lasting products that accompany you on your journey through life. We’re proud of our high-standards of quality, and trademark style. In each BOLDR Watch, you'll find that:

Boldness runs deep: BOLDR watches are always more than meets the eye - each product is engineered to look good, while also being functional in more ways than one. 

Sense of spirit: Each BOLDR watch possesses a unique personality, something that makes it as unique as you are. For example, the BOLDR watch line comes with a unique caseback art that ties into the spirit and personality of each timepiece

Style and substance: BOLDR watches are always produced to exacting quality, while looking pretty damn good too. Meticulously designed and always delivered in a distinct, stylish package - we can’t wait for you to unbox it for the first time.

This watch was built to measure our most, most precious resource: time. The Journey is based on the popular BOLDR Voyage concept, with a vintage, aviator-inspired design. The Journey has a unique Seiko meca-quartz movement that keeps impeccable time, beneath a durable box mineral glass lens. It’s the first BOLDR watch to feature a limited-edition art piece on the caseback, and only on the first limited-edition Kickstarter run.

Watch Movement

The Seiko VK64 Meca-Quartz Movement is a hybrid of quartz and mechanical movement for the chronograph, combining the best of both technologies. The timekeeping mechanism is quartz, with a crystal regulator, powered by a battery. This gives the watch a mechanical feel, while still containing a quartz crystal so you never miss a tick. 

Limited Edition Caseback Artwork

The BOLDR Journey was designed to celebrate first steps. In line with that, the custom art on the Journey’s caseback is based on the theme of taking the first step in your adventure - crafted by Malaysian tattoo artist Kevin Tan. Each BOLDR line of watches will possess a unique, custom-designed artwork on the case back - carefully created to represent each BOLDR line of watches, and what it represents.  

Unique Domed Mineral Glass Lens

The domed shape of the box mineral glass lens lends the watch a vintage look, while creating a curved canopy, reminiscent of antique aviation dials. The mineral glass lens brings out the dial characteristics and highlights the watch face, while also scattering and breaking the light on the sandwich dial, creating a soft, even tone of light on the textured watch face.

Vintage, Aviation-inspired design

Mixing the best of the old and the new, the BOLDR Journey uses different textures on the double-layer sandwich dial to bring out the watch’s character. The watch face features a classic “Disc-Track” texture on the subdial to further highlight and accent the layers, while the numerals take inspiration from vintage aviation instrument arrangements, found in planes during the 30’s and 50’s.

The Journey Chronograph come in a variety of colours to suit all styles. To honour their vintage aircraft rooted design, each model is named after mechanical aircraft from yesteryear. This also celebrates the BOLDR Journey commitment to accompanying you on every journey you take.

 

 

  

Manufacturing Process 

We work with an industry-leading manufacturer in Hong Kong with more than 50 years of timepiece manufacturing and assembly experience to ensure the top-notch quality of our watches.

Our components are hand-finished to a high standard, on par with the top brands in the market - to ensure the personal attention and touch when it comes to the mechanics of our watches. On the other hand, we make use of high-tech CNC-machining for the production of the watch case to ensure the most precise and accurate dimensions.

We use certified materials and components that are free of harmful chemicals that are used in some other factories - we only employ nickel-free metal components for the watch manufacturing process. We’ve personally visited our manufacturers factories before and during production to personally review and oversee the production of BOLDR.

We adhere and insist upon a high standard of compliance - every component that enters the production plant and goes into your watch is controlled to the finest detail - to ensure that its dimensions, aesthetics and quality are flawless.

Each BOLDR is made to exacting detail and impeccable quality - we’re so certain of this, we offer a one-to-one replacement should any defect be found (but you won’t find any!)

International Warranty

We are committed to deliver the best quality product to our wearers. Every BOLDR Watch comes an international limited warranty of flaws in workmanship and materials for TWO (2) years after original purchase date.

Risks and challenges

Team BOLDR has come a long way in our journey to create the perfect product for our backers. We do not anticipate delays beyond our timeline above, however unanticipated situations could occur during production. Team BOLDR is known for transparency and communication with our backers, rest assured that we would keep our Kickstarter community in the loop.

Our previous project was fully backed, however due to unforeseen we were forced to cancel the Kickstarter campaign before the deadline was up. When that happened, we endeavoured to be honest and transparent with our backers, and returned all the funds to the backers promptly, with our sincerest apologies.

In any case, feel free to drop us an email at support@boldrwatches.com for any queries you may have and we will be glad to answer them.
