About

This is not our first attempt on Kickstarter. We failed hard with the first launch of this campaign and took a step back to reorganise ourselves. We are now back stronger than ever, and with a NEVER BEFORE SEEN PROPOSITION.

We have renegotiated extensively with our manufacturers, reworked our business strategies, but most importantly, dedicated further resources to create unrivalled value for the community. 

The Result: An amazing timepiece at an unprecedented price. Even for our last reward tier. Not convinced yet? See the below table:

In a nutshell: Quantity and Dedication

Our campaign goal is high as we need Quantity to invoke economies of scale. Achieving this goal means we transfer savings to our backers. YOU help us to help YOU AND OTHER BACKERS SAVE.

We are Dedicated to be distinguished amongst other watch campaigns. We pledge a significant amount of capital for each and every watch backed in this campaign to lower prices for our backers. WE help YOU SAVE.

Our supplier remains unchanged so be assured that our QUALITY IS NOT COMPROMISED!

We are more interested in creating a legacy than to be a "One-Campaign" brand. This is why we have decided to keep prices unbelievably low to familiarize the market with Constellar.

Small, vintage-inspired timepieces are one of the latest trends today. We have paired what is in trend with an exceptional movement at an unbelievable price

The Constellar Epoch Series comes in 3 classic colours, namely Ivory White, Space Grey, and Royal Blue.

The case is made of surgical grade 316L Stainless Steel, which is a tried and tested material for its durability and resistance towards corrosion. The surface is beautifully polished and features curved lugs for added comfort. 

We use the prestigious Miyota Calibre 9015 Automatic for its renowned accuracy, reliability, and durability. 

The Miyota Calibre 9015 Automatic features a "high-beat" movement which allows for a smooth sweeping motion of the second hand.

The movement also features manual winding and hacking, both of which are features usually found in automatic watches many times the price of The Constellar Epoch Series. 

The Miyota Calibre 9015 Automatic is truly a beast of a movement. We pit it against other movements commonly used in microbrands and other campaigns in the table below: 

The Miyota Calibre 9015 Automatic stands out to be in the sweet spot between Price, Quality and Performance. At our Prices, expect your Constellar Epoch Watch to seriously Overshadow and Outvalue the competition. 

We use a Domed Sapphire Crystal for its remarkable scratch and fracture resistance. Paired with a layer of Anti-Reflective Coating,  legibility is enhanced while reflections are minimized. 

We use a Flat Sapphire Crystal on the exhibition case back to showcase the beautiful Miyota Calibre 9015 Automatic at work.

We chose "alligator-grained" genuine calf leather straps with quick-release spring bars for convenient strap personalization. Our Straps are currently available in Black and Brown.

The Constellar Epoch Series is designed to be small, understated, and unobtrusive. The full watch (with strap) weighs under 70 grams and is slim enough to slip under your cuffs. Show your watch only when you want to and say goodbye to awkward wrist moments!

The first 300 backed pieces of The Constellar Epoch Series are Limited Edition (LE) and uniquely numbered. The number engraved will be dependent on the pledging sequence of the backer. The earlier the pledge, the lower the number. 

We target to deliver in December 2018. Delivery can be made earlier should the campaign meet its goals ahead of schedule. 

We have a few cool ideas lined up for our Stretch Goals. These ideas shall be revealed with campaign progress. Cant Wait? Make a Guess in the comments section! Have a Good Suggestion? Let us know in the comments section!

All Constellar Watches are covered under a 1-year manufacturer warranty. Our manufacturer is backed by decades of watchmaking expertise, governed by rigorous international quality standards (i.e. ISO 9001) and supplies to leading international and e-commerce watch brands. In the very unlikely event that there is any defect, simply let us know and we will resolve the issue swiftly.

Free international/worldwide shipping. Shipping is exclusive of customs duties, import fees, taxes, duties, and other related costs incurred in the delivery of goods. These costs may apply according to destination country laws.

We need to secure our Campaign Goal in order to be able to deliver The Constellar Epoch Series at such incredible prices. Please do help to spread the word on The Constellar Epoch Series and make The Constellar Epoch Series a reality!

REWARD OPTIONS: A questionnaire on the preferred watch colour, strap and delivery address will be sent to backers within 2 weeks of campaign success. Online updates will be made to remind backers of the survey.

SERIAL NUMBER: Backers will not be able to choose the serial number engraved onto the case back of the watches. Serial numbers run from 001 to 300 and will be determined by the sequence in which the first 300 watches were backed. Please do note that your order number is not reflective of the serial number you will receive due to the way Kickstarter handles order numbers. As some backers will back multiple pieces under One order, there is a chance that some backers might 1) not get their desired serial number 2) not be qualified for an LE piece. Constellar cannot guarantee but will attempt to resolve such instances amicably.

BACKING MULTIPLE PIECES: When backing multiple pieces, please ensure that you apply the multiplier properly. "In-between" values shall be rounded down.

MEDIA: Videos, Images and Specifications in this campaign are derived from working prototypes of The Constellar Epoch Series. Constellar reserves the right to refine and improve the design to better fit its vision.

QUOTES: All quotes shown are taken from individuals who have been given a preview of the campaign. 

TIMELINE: The featured timeline is an initial projection by the Constellar Team. Delivery dates may change depending on unforeseen variations in campaign progress. We hope to be able to deliver earlier than forecasted.

EXCHANGE RATE: Values in USD are estimates (USD 1 = SGD 1.4) and only serves as an indication. Exchange rates may vary based on prevailing conditions of the foreign exchange market and intermediary agencies.

TAXES AND DUTIES: Backers are responsible for knowing and paying their local import taxes and duties if applicable.

WARRANTY: Warranty will only cover manufacturing defects and does not cover damages arising from accidents, deliberate actions, and/or wear and tear.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to our Video Director, Ryan Yong, for his hard work and dedication in directing and producing the campaign video and would like to further extend our gratitude to the people responsible for creating the media used in our campaign.

We would also like to thank Kickstarter for being such an amazing platform for dreamers to realize their dreams.

Risks and challenges

Running a campaign on Kickstarter can be an extremely daunting experience. As the name implies, crowdfunding is all about getting the crowd to love your products, and with a strong emphasis on unique and innovative products, campaigns that seem too commonplace are often cast aside and amongst the majority of campaigns that fail.

While we have a "common" product, we have decided to re-imagine our approach to bringing The Constellar Epoch Series to the market. We heavily negotiated with our manufacturers and re-worked our thought processes revolving Crowdfunding.

An idea came up and was brought to the board for discussion "What about we put capital into reducing prices for our backers?". This was an extremely wild idea that has not been observably done on Kickstarter before, but we knew it was the right answer. We threw aside our initial storyboard and started anew. And the rest is history.

We overcame our period of challenge with process innovation and the dare to do things differently.
