Pocket Watch and Pendant Accessories for the Apple Watch

$30,264

Developed exclusively for the Apple Watch, the Pendulum Collection is a series of premium accessories designed to be worn off your wrist.

At Bucardo, we bring a fresh twist to classic designs. The Apple Watch inspired us to reflect on timepieces of the past and the values and aesthetics they represent: Sophistication. Integrity. Quality. We drew on this inspiration to create a collection that seamlessly integrates technology and fashion.

“Marries the high-tech approach of the Apple Watch with the old school fashion of pocket watches and pendants” – ABC NEWS

“A new accessory that turns the Apple Watch into an off-the-wrist piece of jewelry, making it more Sherlock Holmes than Inspector Gadget” - POPSUGAR

“Inject some old-school style into your wearable tech device.” - COMPLEX

“Giving an air of timelessness to the modern-day wearable.” - HYPEBEAST

“We like the core idea: Stick your Apple Watch on the end of a chain, like a pocket watch or pendant, and rock your new-school iOS device in a very old-school way.” - Macworld

“It's easy to see how crazy popular these chains could become.” - BUSTLE

“Takes the modern functionality of a smartwatch and combines it with a classic aesthetic quality.” - TRENDHUNTER

“This stunning, classic design brings together the old and the new, and does so in quite a stylish and rather eye-catching fashion.” - STUPIDDOPE

Embrace wearable technology while staying true to your style. 

Our accessories reflect who we are. We enjoy technology but want it to reflect our style, not the other way around.

We invite you to wear your Apple Watch in a different way -- a way that speaks to your unique style. The Pendulum Collection is perfect for everyday and for those occasions when you need space from the constant buzz of your virtual world... when being present is most important.

Inspired by the original way that men wore their timepieces, our patent-pending technology transforms your 42mm Apple Watch into a classic, vintage-inspired pocket watch. Engineered to interface directly with the band slots of your Apple Watch, simply slide your wristbands out and slide your Bucardo accessory in. Our Pocket Watch protects your Apple Watch, and opens to give you easy access to the Apple Watch face.

Choose between a classic engraved pinstripe cover or a hammered metal cover. Pocket Watches include a detachable chain and are plated in 18K gold or sterling silver.

Inspired by vintage jewelry, our patent-pending technology transforms your 38mm Apple Watch into a pendant necklace. Our collection includes two styles: one that allows you to wear your Apple Watch covered, for a more discreet look, and another that leaves the Apple Watch face exposed and adorned with charms.

Our Locket Pendant Necklaces feature stylized covers that open to reveal the face of the Apple Watch and include a 38” adjustable chain.

Our Charm Pendant Necklaces allow you to wear your Apple Watch with the face exposed and personalized with a selection of thoughtfully designed, interchangeable charms. The charms are suspended from the bottom of the Apple Watch. These pieces include a 38” adjustable chain. Additional charms will be sold separately.

We worked hand in hand with skilled artisans in downtown LA’s jewelry district to develop the Pendulum Collection. We are very excited to announce that our Kickstarter orders will be MADE in the USA. Constructed of a premium alloy, our pieces are hand polished and plated in 18K gold or sterling silver. Our embellished pieces feature crystals from Swarovski®.

The Pendulum Collection is engineered to integrate seamlessly with the Apple Watch. After removing the bands, our covers and charms slide in and out of the band slots located on either side of the Apple Watch. Once in place, they are firmly secured by the Apple Watch latch mechanism. Our pocket watch and locket pendant covers open and close using our patent-pending hinge and closure system.

Our collection marries top-tier engineering with eye-catching contemporary design. We have worked alongside our hand-picked team of designers and engineers to bring the Pendulum Collection to life.

We collaborated with world-class designers who have developed collections for Marc by Marc Jacobs, Coach, Kate Spade and Bottega Veneta. Our team drew inspiration from vintage and turn-of-the-century pieces, thoughtfully crafting our collection to showcase Apple’s signature aesthetic.

In designing our packaging, we have paid special attention to our environmental footprint. Each Pendulum accessory will be packaged in a custom fit cedar wood block which is designed to be used as a free-standing docking station for the Apple Watch. 

Your support will help us bring this one of a kind collection to market. Our designs are completed. Your funding will allow us to finalize the development process, pay for tooling and fund our initial production run. This is also your chance to pre-order pieces from The Pendulum Collection at special prices before they become available at retail outlets. Exclusive to Kickstarter, your Pendulum piece will be made in the USA.

A huge thank you to everyone for supporting the Pendulum Collection, our success depends on you! Please share this project with your friends and family.

Risks and challenges

In pioneering this new category, we face a range of obstacles in order to deliver the highest quality accessories to the marketplace. The main risk to you as a backer is the manufacturing schedule. Tools and molds need to be custom-produced to ensure that our goods conform to precise specifications. We have established relationships with an outstanding network of suppliers and factories. We therefore expect to deliver the product to you on schedule.
