Hi everybody, thank you for visiting our kickstarter page! We are a couple of guys who share a passion for watches and vintage motor sport, therefore we decided to create an elegant and timeless watch brand in spirit of vintage motorsport.

Camber Watches are all about fine watch making and vintage motorsport. We are planning to create different chapters of this story. Our first chapter tells the story of one of the oldest forms of motor sport: The Hillclimb

Hill Climbing is one of the oldest forms of Motorsport. It is a branch of Motorsport in which drivers compete against time to complete an uphill course and is therefore a battle against time. As the drivers climb toward the summit, the thin air slows reflexes and reduces muscle strength. The thin air also robs engines of to 30% of their power. Competitors and vehicles must be in top shape simply to finish…let alone win!

In hill climbing every tenth of a second counts; therefore we decided to create a timepiece with a special chronograph movement which is able to measure time down to one tenth of a second. It’s dial is inspired by the early mechanical stop watches who where used at motor sporting events.

Roségold plated combination

Especially for this kickstarter campaign we managed to create great watch sets complete with matching cufflinks and original packaging for all backers for only €88 ($98) including free world wide shipping! Sets of multiple watches are even less expensive

  • Water Resistance : 3 ATM (50 m) Dial: ivory and black
  • WE RECEIVED FEEDBACK ON THE SIZE AND WE DECIDED THAT YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE FOR A SMALLER SIZE : 42MM CASE DIAMETER 

 
To complete you appearance we designed a special vintage steering wheel shaped cufflinks, matching the watch.

Because it’s such a great story we designed a special book shaped watch and cufflinks box. This Book shaped box will give the perfect shelter for your watch and cufflinks. Also we are planning to keep this packaging for future editions so it’s a great feature to collect all the different chapters next to each other. We put a great deal of details in the design of the box, such as linen cover, marble printed inside cover, embossed details and vintage high gloss photograph.

We spend a year to find the right manufacturer for our watches, cufflinks and packaging and we found great partners, after thorough inspection of there quality standard and supply chain reliability. We are a 100% confident that we can deliver a great products in a short amount of time for just the right price!

 To start this brand we need a plede of 18 800euro (approx. $21000) Please help us by backing this project and become one of our first brand ambassadors and we will not let you down for great future editions.

                             

All the ideas we had for camber watches came to life with the amazing work of Bart de Keyzer of www.3rd-floor.org and all the great pictures are made by Eva Meijer www.evameijer.com
