What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

A tried, tested and tough tactical timepiece

The BOLDR Expedition automatic field watch is a tough, ever ready companion for your next adventure. With a military-inspired design, the Expedition has some of the key features that made the field watch a tactical timepiece, dating back to World War II. So whether for work or play, the Expedition is here to join your journey.

Sturdy on the outside, sleek on the inside

Built tough, the BOLDR Expedition comes in a 316L stainless steel machined case rated up to 20ATM, with dual screw-down crowns to adjust the time/date and the inner crown bezel, used to mark countdowns, time elapsed or for use as a compass (here's a great article showing you how). The Expedition is powered by an automatic Sellita SW200-1 movement, featuring a hacking seconds hand, supported by diashock to keep it ticking no matter what the mission.

Glance at your time on the go

As a field watch, the Expedition is rugged right off the bat, with a high-contrast display that allow quick time-telling at a glance thanks to the matte dial with printed logo and subtitles and inner minute track. If night time excursions are your thing, the Expedition has you covered with swiss superluminova hour markers in two-tone lume colours for quick legibility in low light. The second screw-down crown features a bright orange rim for quick differentiation, and controls a rotating brass inner dial ring bezel with printed markings and indexes.

From formal to functional

The Expedition is stealthily stylish, great for adding an element of toughness to those formal occasions. It’s available in 6 striking colours, and comes with a canvas strap, calf leather lining, and brass eyelets for the military feel. The lens on the Expedition is our iconic BOLDR double domed sapphire crystal, with AR (anti-reflective) coating on the underside. The caseback is also sapphire crystal with our signature caseback artwork - allowing you both a look into the inner mechanisms of the watch, as well as putting an interactive piece of art on your wrist.

2 years international warranty: BOLDR offers a limited international warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of TWO (2) year after original purchase from BOLDR Supply Co.

This means that if the components or materials in your watch aren’t right, or if the watch isn’t functioning correctly, we’ll repair or replace it at our discretion. We don't cover normal wear and tear or, crystal, watch case, strap, bracelet, loss or theft. You will void your warranty if you open the caseback, or forget to screw down or push in the crown and expose the internal components of your watch to moisture.

Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims and service requests, so hold onto your warranty card and ID. BOLDR will not accept a warranty claim or repair request if a watch has evidence of excessive wear or misuse.

Risks and challenges

Backers are responsible for any Duty/VAT/GST charges for their own country, which may vary according to each country’s legal and taxation structure. BOLDR legally cannot pay for or compensate customers for their own country’s Duties or VAT or GST. Upon purchasing a BOLDR Watch, you are acknowledging that you are aware of and intend to pay for your own Duties or VAT or GST on your purchase. For more information or to calculate your Duty/VAT/GST please visit this website: http://www.thevatcalculator.com/international-vat-and-gst-calculator/

Some countries or postal services are known for being slow with customs or shipping - but we do our best to make sure our products are shipped out on time (or often, early). We always endeavour to keep you up to date on shipping information, but we hope you understand that once the product leaves our hands - there’s often little we can do to speed things up with our shipping partners or your country’s customs department. If you do run into any trouble - please contact us directly at: support@boldrwatches.com

When manufacturing physical goods, production delays are a very real problem. While we’ve never experienced that before with our manufacturers, we would like to assure you that if we do experience any delays, it would be due to us ensuring that we’re delivering the best product with the best quality possible. However, once our campaign closes, we promise to deliver what you’ve bought - and will keep everyone abreast of any and all changes in timeline (if any).
