STORY BEHIND FIRST WATCH SERIES
When Captain James Cook – generally regarded as one of history’s most ambitious explorers – came upon New Zealand in 1769, he met the Maori people and was inspired by their durability and strength. His ship at the time was called the HMS Endeavor – an apt name for an adventurer’s ship. Captain Cook became so impressed with Maori people that he would return to New Zealand three times, often commenting on the resolve and dedication of the people who lived there. The Aquacy™ Logo is inspired by the Hei Matau, an at least 2000 year old symbol. Each Aquacy™ 1769 has on the dial the 1769 in distressed font reproduction from James Cook's original map of New Zealand. Each watch will be individually numbered (Limited to 1769 Pieces) with a ceramic bezel insert among other highly desirable features.

Risks and challenges
There are always some risks in involved in manufacturing but we did spend months finding the right factory and refining the design. We had prototypes made of watches and packaging to check quality, function. Aquacy was founded by a 13 year veteran of the watch industry so we know watches. Each piece will be individually quality controlled prior to shipping to backer. The only real challenge we can See possibly occurring is if we have a very large number of backers it could make production take longer thus delaying delivery. If this occurs we will keep backers updated and will likely get at least partial shipment in (for example 1/2) and ship to the earliest backers and then get in the second half of production and ship those out to the remaining backers shortly thereafter. We can ship anywhere in the world by UPS and have 13 years experience exporting watches to other countries. All watches ship from the USA by UPS.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
