About this project
My friends and I are interested in fashion. Accessories like a high quality and well-designed luxury watch are statements and truly transform an outfit. Unfortunately, with the current state of the bloated luxury watch industry finding a watch at an affordable price point makes things difficult. Brands, middle men, brokers, and retailers regularly markup luxury watches without regulation, severely inflating the true cost of a quality and affordable timepiece. We started Newton to create a new way to buy a luxury watch without the luxury markup. To do away with the frustration of paying for overpriced name brand watches. We want to offer meticulously crafted, handmade opulent watches at an approachable price point.
HOW WE DO IT
- Supply Chain - Thanks to our manufacturing partnerships and direct-to-consumer approach, we skip the industry’s middle men markups (wholesalers, brokers, and distributors) and pass these savings to you.
- Design - We’ve spent over a year working with our manufacturers to develop prototypes and perfect our designs. We obsessed over every last detail and are proud to share our first collection of elegant, classic and clean designs for both women and men.
- Customer Experience - We will do whatever it takes for you to be completely satisfied with your customer experience. We sell directly to you online so you do not have to deal with commission-driven salespeople at luxury watch outlets and department stores. We also skip the retail markups, the expensive advertising, and the promotional and marketing gimmicks.
- True Quality - We’ve leveraged our unique personal relationships to partner directly with several of the world’s leading luxury timepiece manufacturers, who for decades have hand-produced luxury watches that retail around the world for over $800. They have produced watches for many well-known retailers and luxury brands around the world.

WHO WE ARE
A group of graduate students, designers, entrepreneurs and young professionals. We are really just a group of best friends and watch enthusiasts bound by our friendship, interest in fashion, and passion for pushing the boundaries. We started as friends, before bouncing ideas off of each other and becoming business partners.
Newton was founded in SoHo New York City by several friends. It began over an email between two friends, which then turned into a phone call. An idea was discussed, and by the time we both hung up, Newton was born. Our objective: to offer meticulously crafted, handmade lavish watches at an approachable price. We started Newton to create a new model - to make luxury watches accessible. A full line of different types and styled watches that stay at an AFFORDABLE cost. So join us on this journey and be a part of it every step of the way. Our name pays homage to one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution as we hope to inspire and revolutionise the industry.
We will send out several updates throughout the entire process making sure our backers are up-to-date on any and all important information. We want to create a bond, a synergy with our backers because ultimately you are the ones turning our dream into a reality. We are excited to grow and anxious to see what the future has in store for us.
WHY WE’RE HERE
We have beautiful prototypes and packaging ready. We’re on Kickstarter to raise the capital we need for our first run. We’re trying to change the luxury watch industry. We know it’s a lofty goal and a long road. But with your support, we believe this can be the start of something revolutionary.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
In order to turn this dream of ours into a reality, we need your support. Not only does this mean pledging for one of our awesome watches, but sharing the story with a friend. The important thing to remember with Kickstarter is if we don't reach our full funding goal....we get nothing.
We are going to do everything we can to spread the word in a variety of ways. We hope through the use of social media and blogs we can drive enough outside traffic to our page which will result in us reaching our funding goal. If you could do something as simple as tweeting about our page or just liking our Facebook page, it can really go a long way. Simply click the Facebook and Twitter tabs at the bottom of the page.
Newton; because everyone deserves a luxury watch.

Risks and challenges
The challenges of NEWTON Watches will be getting the word out, and convincing kickstarter to participate. With so many great projects to choose from, we hope ours will stand apart from the rest. To reach as many people as possible, we are asking friends, families, and various blogs to help spread the word.
Once the funding is in place, the challenge will be producing on a large scale. Depending on outside help is difficult, but we have been dealing with a manufacturer for months and have established a solid relationship, which has has given us a lot of confidence in them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
