You Can Help Breathe Life Into Marina
We've made complex watches in the past, but Marina presented us with unique challenges. We already put more into developing her than all our other watches combined. It's not simply a case of, "Draw up a watch and find someone to make it." We had to find a way to put all our features into a single watch that would also live up to it's water resistance rating. Extensive investments were also placed into locating high quality parts from highly reputable producers. Having worked with our manufacturers to prepare for our first-run order of Marina, they're now ready to put Marina into production, and thanks to everyone who participated in our Kickstarter project to create marina, Day One of production is coming soon!
Thank you to all of The Crew and our backers!
From our staff and family, to our friends and customers... Each of you have helped us along on our journey bringing Marina to Life!
Marina - the first women's dive watch from The Abingdon co. - Will be arriving in June 2015! Get yours before our Kickstarter ends, and save up to $300 off Marina's final retail price!
And once again.... Thank you everyone!
Risks and challenges
On Receiving Your Incentive :
Like every company, a small risk exists that our timeline can be delayed due to 'acts of nature'. That being said, we've been fortunate enough to have completed all development work for Marina prior to launching this campaign. Our manufacturers are prepared to start producing Marina immediately once we've reached our funding goal. This allows us to guarantee delivery of Marina and all other incentives by May of 2015 if not sooner (baring any catastrophic acts of nature Massive Earthquakes, Fires, etc).
On Our Funding Goal:
The Abingdon Co. has thousands of loyal customers across the globe. We began reaching out to each individual customer since the first day of this Kickstarter campaign, and we will continue this practice until we've reached every last customer. Their love for our products and the innovation of Marina has given us great confidence in our ability to reach our funding goal.
Given our confidence and the fact that production & delivery is a non-issue, our primary challenge stems from our being a smaller boutique company attempting to raise $75,000. If we do not meet our funding goal you would not be charged for the money you pledged, however you also would not receive the incentive you had hoped to receive. That fact is the sole risk you run. Again though, we are confident in our abilities to deliver your incentives on time and built right.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
