Hi Backers,  

Yep! We're shipping the final batch of Rebel-DDCs.

To thank you for your patience, we have upgraded all Rebel-DDC shipping to second-day air in the US and FedEx Express internationally. Regardless of the expense on our end in doing so, we feel that it is only right that you all have your watches as soon as possible. You've waited long enough! We look forward to you all receiving your DDCs within 5-12 business days.

If you have yet to receive a tracking number, you could expect one within the next few days.  

If you have any questions regarding your particular order, as always please feel free to email us at info@LIVwatches.com, chat with us at rewards.livwatches.com or give us a call at 718 548 9282 - We're here to help!

THANK YOU ALL!

As we wrap up this Kickstarter project, we'd like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your unwavering support in making the incredible Rebel a reality.  We could not have done it without you!  Thank you for believing in us, and most of all, the product.  Thank you for appreciating the quality, time and effort that it took to create such a unique timepiece.  Thank you to our suppliers for working with us to create a watch that is different to anything anyone has seen before.

LESSONS LEARNED

As stated in previous updates, the Rebel was more successful than we could have ever imagined, and with four variations it was an incredibly complex project. It's been a long journey, filled with trials and tribulations, but what a rewarding one!  We have learned so much, and we wanted to share the lessons we've learned with you.

Changes we have made to take us to the next level:

1. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

Always overestimate the time it will take to complete a project. Our new motto is: "Look at what could go wrong versus what should go right."  

2. The team is everything

Over the last six months, we have added three new fantastic team members in the areas of fan experience and fulfillment/logistics. Now our original team can focus on product and production.

      Very disappointed. My Rebel-A is not staying wound up on my watch winder and the automatic winding mechanism is not smooth so does not turn on the watch winder. I have twice used the Liv website to report this and ask for advice and not had any response so would not recommend this watch or company
