About this project
BAU Watches born out of the idea that distinctive, minimalist and modern design can be affordable. Our first creation, BAU 963 was carefully designed to balance modern and elegant elements in a classic setting.
BAU 963 model was designed for empowered new Generations willing to transmit confidence and style.
BAU 963 is available in two different settings: leather and NATO straps. For confident professionals, for fashion-aware people willing to gleam up while sportive, for minimalist design lovers, BAU 963 provides the setting that best fits your spirit.
For over a year we have worked in the concept, functional design, factory audits and prototype manufacturing.
We started working on more than a dozen designs, and we refined the definitive one over and over, taking out all ornaments to finally get to the basic, minimalist and functional combination, the BAU 963, a design based on the purpose and function.
We have carefully considered all details: hour and minutes hands visibility and proportion, seconds hands, hours and minutes lines, size and relative position of all elements, case material and geometry, movement and finishing...
The result? An eye-catching, smart and minimal piece that will shine in any context. All this with minimal, ultra-functional design: you just can´t help staring at it!
Materials. We choose the classic, well tested 316L Stainless Steel for the case. Polished by hand, our solid steel case it will shine forever.
3ATM Water Resistant: A great companion for all situations.
Size. 40 mm width. Great for both men and women, with the space that a great design requires. Height: 8 mm, giving a solid feeling without compromising comfort.
This size can be worn casually as well as in a formal ocassion. Great for both men and women.
Dial Colour. Is it white? Just white? Of course not! it´s a lovely, elegant eggshell white, with a superb and delicate fine grain.
Straps. We have 3 options! The classic genuine leather black (included by default in all the BAU 963 watches), and two stunning Nato Nylon options: the GALIA strap, and the NAVY strap.

Movement. The best and yet cost effective: Citizen Miyota 2035. The fresh battery supplied with the watch will run for years.
Glass. Mineral-hardened scratch-resistant domed crystal.

Risks and challenges
Any design & manufacturing project faces a series of challenges... Will suppliers deliver on time? Final product will have the required quality? Did we consider all possible hidden costs in the rewards definition?
Although this is our first project in Kickstarter, we have over 10 years of experience in sourcing, manufacturing and e-commerce.
Thus, we can reduce the risks to levels of excellence, applying best practices, as large companies do (well, because we do that sort of things in those large companies ;-))
What´s next? Get the funding to reach Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ), and that´s what rewards are all about.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
