About this project
rvndsgn is a new boutique watch brand started in 2011 as the unique vision of american industrial designer zach raven. rvndsgn watches are the first of their kind, completely built using the latest in 3d rapid-prototyping technology. designed in stainless steel, the beauty of the manufacturing process shows the story of its creation through subtle grain on the case, allowing each watch to be unique. our watches are completely hand assembled in the united states using high quality swiss eta movements, solid rapid-prototyped stainless-steel, and genuine italian leather.
we have come to kickstarter to ask the community to help fund our project. pledges will help support us by finishing development and design, building an inventory, and creating advertising. your donations will receive the incentives at the right, our way of saying thanks.
rvndsgn watches will be produced by shapeways, a leader in rapid prototyping manufacturing. we have no machines to buy, nor any engineering to accomplish. 3D CAD data is fed directly to the machines and our parts arrive at the door ready to be assembled.
we believe that good design tells a story and is accessible to everyone. our story is revisiting the classic timepiece using the latest manufacturing techniques. we look forward to providing our customers with well designed affordable timepieces soon, and for years to come.
thank you for your support!
heres a small offering, check out the website for the full line.
domestic orders are 3-4 weeks, international orders are 4-6 weeks. however if the project gets funded we can build an inventory and cut delivery times in half.
our watches are designed and assembled in grand rapids michigan. the rapid prototyping process is done in the netherlands.
our watches are made of solid 3d-printed stainless steel. we offer a natural (steel color), matte bronze, polished gold, black and white powder coating. if you pledge $500 or more we can powdercoat in many different colors to match your style.
we will be designing the watch to incorporate a water resistance/water proof aspect. so, yes.
