About this project

 

 

 

    

 

Founded in 2016 Ackurat is a independent Swedish watch brand strongly influenced by its Scandinavian origin. Each Ackurat timepiece is underpinned by an uncomplicated love of minimalism and we approach design in a simple manner. We avoid the unnecessary but are obsessive about details and the finishing touches.    

We understand the importance of collaborating with those who have the experience and expertise, and our watches is a result of uncompromising craftsmanship provided by each one of our gloabal manufacturing partners. 

Last year we launched our first collection and now we proudly present our latest creation, the Minimalist Collection exclusively on Kickstarter. A 38mm diameter three hand calender watch in our signature lugless case design.

  

With our second collection we have further refined and developed the signature elements from our first model, keeping a consistent design language. For us, it´s all about the details and the Minimalist Collection contains several design elements that gives the watch a detailed, yet minimalistic look. 

The smaller diameter and the 8,1mm thin case, combined with a high quality Italian leather strap manufactured in Switzerland or a stainless steel Milanese mesh strap, makes it easy to pair the watch with any outfit, providing a sophisticated look.

The watch takes inspiration from Scandinavian minimalism and our own personal desire for a watch that combines high quality swiss components with a high level of detailing and craftsmanship.

  

From precision Swiss movements to scratch-resistant sapphire glass and soft Italian nappa calf leather, we only use the highest quality components for each Ackurat timepiece. We pay close attention to every step of the manufacturing process, from the first draft on paper to the final step in the assembly so that every surface and every angle can grant our watches a sincere beauty. 

  

The movement is the beating heart of any watch. Although hidden from sight this essential mechanism will determine the precision of your timepiece. That is why the Minimalist Collection is housing a Swiss Harley Ronda 705 movement that will ensure perfect timekeeping for many years to come. 

  

Scratch me if you can. All of our watches are fitted with sapphire crystal, the most resistant crystal there is. Sapphire is a naturally growing crystal and the second hardest substance on the planet, so hard that only a diamond can scratch it.  

To ensure true clarity we use a scratch-resistant doubled domed sapphire with anti-reflective coating. Compared to the more commonly used single domed crystal, a double domed glass will give you a clear view of the dial from all angles.

  

Italy has a great tradition and knowledge of producing high quality leather. That´s why we exclusively use Italian nappa calf leather, a full-grain un-split leather that is very soft and pliable. The leather develops a patina over the years that adds to its beauty, and even if the leather is soft, it is very tough and durable. 

To guarantee the highest possible quality, all of our leather products are handcrafted by our swiss manufacturing partner. A family-owned and run business that has been making leather goods for generations.

If you prefer to wear your watch with a steel band, don´t worry, we got you covered. We also offer three options of stainless steel Milanese mesh straps. Whether you want a stainless steel, classic gold tone, or a sport black PVD finish, your watch will take on a whole new look.

  

  

Just like the simplicity of our design, our pledge offers are simple. You can choose between one, two or three watches. If you´re an early backer you will save up to 45% off the expected retail price, depending on the number of watches you order.

Risks and challenges

Developing new products can be extremely complex but we have done everything we can to identify potential or unforeseen risks or delays. The entire production is lined up and ready to go.

Everything has been checked and tested in terms of technical drawings, water proof testing and prototypes. We also have a great team of manufacturing partners that we have worked with for more than a year with our current collection that was launched in 2016.

While we do not foresee any major setbacks there is of course always the possibility of small delays and setback in manufacturing. We consider that transparency is key and will keep all backers up to speed with frequent updates.

Duty/VAT charges: Our watches will be shipped from Sweden, so please note that you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
