Watches have always been more than just a time piece. They are a personal statement. When selecting a watch you are looking for something that appeals to you on several levels. It goes beyond shape, colour and function. It's about personal preferences. It's about image - the one you have for yourself and the one you want to convey to others. You select the watch and the watch says something about you. Something that expresses the unique individuality of those who wear them all while simultaneously inspiring them.
We’ve grown tired of classic watch designs so we created a line that’s bold, daring and smooth, just like you.
You stand out. Make sure your watch does too!
Part of Aiverc's rigorous market testing was sending samples to a few influencers prior to our campaign, this is what they say:
The ‘Jørn Utzon’ Collection
Aiverc "Jørn Utzon" Collection combines the grandeur of prominent structures with premium components to produce the ultimate fashion statement in three stunning watch designs. With your support, Aiverc can finally roll out its first line of elegant timepieces
Deriving its look from the Sydney Opera House, this watch is a tribute to Jørn Utzon and all the architects who invigorate our day-to-day lives with their stunning work.
As the first design, the Opera is deeply associated with the love of our designer in architectural and minimalist ways.
The crisp white and abstract dial is associated with the world famous structure’s curved building on the Harbour.
The Faena Art Center, which is located on the majestic South Beach boardwalk in Miami, integrates a dynamic combination of art, culture, and design at the building’s core. We fell in love the moment we set our eyes on this magnificent structure
Drawing inspiration from the Faena Art Centre, this watch is perfect for those with clean-cut personas who are eagerly searching for their next bold adventure.
The grey and concrete look represents the artistic, adventurous and fashionable mind. The unique crackling face and clean body is thoughtfully designed to represent the feeling of a breakthrough, unlike any other watch line.
Just like the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, which inspired this unique look, the ‘Ontario’ excels at being different with a sleek black design.
What’s amazing about this building is the “crystal”. The DE constructivist crystalline form is clad in 25% glass and 75% aluminium, sitting on top of a steel frame.
In this design, we changed the crystal into black mother of pearl which shows its beauty with the lustrous colours of green, purple, aubergine, blue, grey, silver or peacock, a mix of several shades, like a peacock's feather. This amazing all-black design comes with alligator black genuine leather straps, which also enhances the design.
The most accurate watch on the market:
We have chosen Citizen Miyota 2035 which is well known for it’s accuracy. Miyota was founded in 1918 and is now one of the largest producer of movement. The Miyota movement 2035 are considered to be one of their most famous and most reliable movements.
We utilise electronic oscillators in our watches that are regulated by quartz crystals. This technology means that our watches only lose roughly 15 seconds a month, compared to automatic watches that can lose up to 15 seconds per day.
We use 316L stainless steel for all of our watches. This long-lasting metal resists corrosion, meaning the beauty of our watches will stand the test of time. 316L Stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion such as seawater or acidic liquids. Therefore this material is widely used in diving equipment due to the materials high corrosion-resistance.
Most major luxury watch companies apply 316L for the overall well-rounded advantages. The stainless steel grade chosen by most luxury watchmakers is 316L (most notably Omega, IWC and Patek Philippe). Due to its superior qualities, 316L is often referred to as surgical grade stainless steel (it is the grade preferred in biomedical applications) or marine grade stainless steel (since it’s beneficial in marine environments).
Sapphire crystal glass
Probably the most desirable watch glass on the market. Sapphire rates 9 around the MOH scale, (that’s the measures of relative hardness of materials) and it are just behind diamond, which measures 10. Of all of the glass, sapphire crystal is the least prone to shatter or be scratched. Contrary you ought to be more concerned that the watch may scratch another surface!
Sapphire crystal is among the features that push up the price of top end watches. This is because of the need for expensive tools, which use diamonds to cut and shape the sapphire and the craftsmanship involved.
Valentine's Day Couples Charms
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Aiverc has added a special limited 'SUPER EARLY BIRD' discount for couples to receive custom charms to accessorise both of their watches. Since this is a time sensitive offer, it will be limited to the first 99 backers on Kickstarter, which aligns with other similar deals.
The charms utilised a two-sided magnetic design on both the top and bottom. Attaching the charms are extremely easy when using the supplied 5mm hole punch tool (similar to a leather belt hole puncher), so you can punch the hole anywhere you like on the watch’s leather. Then, simply insert the bottom of the charm through the hole and attach it to the top.
In the future, you will be able to design your own charm collection to make your statement. We refer to this collection as "Decoratifs".
Time Well Spent
Years of research, testing and revisions have brought Aiverc to this stage in its prosperous lifecycle. Now, in order to enter our first round of production we need the assistance of the crowd (aka you!).
Our goals for Aiverc extend far beyond designing a watch that catches your eye. We’re also committed to building watches of the highest quality and luxury, at an affordable price.
Everyone deserves a watch they can be proud of. You shouldn’t have to make sacrifices when you’re trying to express yourself. That’s why we’ve scoured the world for the best partners and suppliers. We’ve formed relationships that have allowed us to build premium luxury watches for an affordable price.
And it’s our pleasure to pass those savings on to you. We promise to always build watches of the highest quality, that are bold, unique, and most importantly, affordable.
No Corners Cut
Aiverc needs to reach its funding goal of AU$ 20,000 in order to take the next step towards its first round of production, including the tooling, manufacturing and labor. Up until now, we've only been able to sample our unique designs, but it's finally time to kickstart the next step.
About The Creator
Aiverc is the brainchild of Crevia.
Starting from a young age, she has always been fascinated by the works of contemporary architects, such as Jørn Utzon, and was inspired to take up her own creative pursuits.
Tired of classic watches that hadn’t seen a significant update in centuries, she created Aiverc. Her goal was to push the boundaries of art and fashion in the same way her favourite architects have.
Thanks to her drive and determination, Aiverc is on its way to creating innovative new watches like nothing the world has seen before.
Risks and challenges
We are beginners on Kickstarter, but we and our manufacturing partners have years of experience in the industry! We are aware our project is complex and that there are always unforeseen issues, but we have anticipated and planned for potential risks and have built a rock-solid production and delivery plan.
Our production is quite advanced and you can be very confident about our capacity to provide high-quality products on time. We spent over the last year designing, developing, and receiving finalised samples. We are glad to say that we have everything aligned and are ready to get our first batch produced and just need your help to get it started!

We have very skilful and professional suppliers and do not anticipate delays to our timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterwards.
Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
