Oblong is a bold, contemporary take on the classic rectangular timepiece. A hybrid of past and present with a distinctly modernist edge. Oblong is made from the best, most resilient components available, such as Italian leather, sapphire crystal, steel mesh bands from Pforzheim in Germany and a Swiss-made movement with 10 years of battery life.
We believe that combining a design philosophy seeking timelessness with high-grade, durable materials, creates watches that are truly long-lasting.
We have received the working samples and they look fantastic.
Risks and challenges
We have been working with our manufacturers for more than five years and Oblong has been under way for more than a year.
The entire production is lined up and ready to go. Everything has been checked and tested in terms of technical drawings, water proof testing, prototypes and so on.
As soon as we reach our funding target, we will press the button and start production.
We're confident that we will meet - and possibly beat - our delivery targets.
In fact, we have pre-booked an ultra-express production that will allow us to produce and ship the first 400 watches before Christmas 2016.
Having said that, manufacturing always involves an element of risk and uncertainty. We will keep you updated and should anything occur that might affect delivery you will be the first to know.
Duty/VAT charges: Our watches will be shipped from Denmark, so please note that you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
Unfortunately there's not much we can do to help with this issue, so if in doubt, we recommend you check with your local customs to learn more about the procedure in your country.
