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.

Risks and challenges

They have said that to be a great watch company you have to be around for a hundred years…… They also have said you need to have been to the highest mountain peaks and to the depths of the deepest oceans….. They also have said you need to have your watch worn by celebrities and sports stars.

Well, we beg to differ!

When we decided to create our own watch brand, we wanted to develop watches that adhere to the strictest in Swiss horological standards. That means precision tooling, perfect assembly and thorough testing. They also had to have functional simplicity, extreme reliability, durability, accuracy, COSC certification and serve a purpose.

Introducing the RISTOLA Professional Series of watches. They are completely designed, tooled, hand assembled and tested in La Chaux-de-Fonds, a city in the Neuchatel Canton of Switzerland, in the heart of the Swiss watch making industry.

RISTOLA watches were created for the discerning individual who saviors the highest in quality and craftsmanship from a Swiss watch. From the surgical grade stainless steel cases to the chronometre grade automatique movements, our Professional Series watches have been purpose-built to last a lifetime. Quality is paramount and we achieve this by adhering to the highest in Swiss watch making standards, as set by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH.
