Hi all, this is the same campaign from before, due to movement supply issue of NE15, we decided to change the movement to NH35 and make some adjustment to our goals and rewards. Therefore, please note that the movement that we use on this campaign in NH35!
Corva is an independent micro-watch brand based in Indonesia. We are a team of three people with years of experience in brand management, product and graphic design that directly work with manufacturer overseas.
The reason behind our creation is as simple as we want to share this passion with others who are also passionate with watches. We want to create a watch that you can appreciate because of the value behind it. We are hopeful that you are as excited to Saxodate as we are and can support us in this project!
What Corva uphold is the struggle how young community fit themselves in a society nowadays. Corva stands as the endeavor that people face when they first started out living in society. We believe that their achievement small or big needs celebration and we want to be part of their celebration. This is the watch for those who seek for distinction and strive for achievement.
When everybody opts for complexity, we settle for authenticity. Because eventually, that’s what people are looking for: a time teller crafted by watchmakers who understand the value of time from the very core. In this case, we believe it will not be a mere watch. Rather, a watch that speaks achievement and distinction of the wearer. And that’s what we focus on.
We take the design of Corva Saxodate from an era right before where mechanical watches hit quartz crisis, the 70’s. Yet, this was also the era where some of the worlds’ watch icons were born like Patek Phillipe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, or Vacheron Constantin 222.
While quartz competition was hitting hard, this era marked a complete turning point in watches design from a special purpose sports watches and traditional gold dress watch to the era where Luxury All-rounder Stainless Steel Sports model was born as a new watch category. We think what become our inspiration taking cues from that era is Saxodate design stands for the freedom of breaking out from the traditions.
We believe that an excellent time teller is meant to keep the wearer company at all times, at any cost. Featuring solid 316L stainless steel with water resistance of 100 meters, our 40mm monocoque case is extremely insusceptible to corrosion from acids found in the ocean and in perspiration, making the watch a reliable all-round companion.
You can also feel its luxury from the circular brushed finishing on the top part of the case with a touch of the polished finishing on its side to add character. Corva Saxodate use circular brushed for its top case to achieve sunburst effect when it is in contact with bright environment
The case is employed with single-domed sapphire glass that further give you the vintage feel. Turn it over and the watch will let you its core movement from a clear case back
Saxodate will be offered in three different color variety; Black, White, and Limited Numbered edition of Midnight Blue. The Midnight Blue dial will be sold exclusive on Kickstarter only (Limited to 150) and employed a special paint brushing technique to create subtle gradation that mimics the color of midnight sky.
Whichever color you fancy, every dial is employed with distinctively customized hand applied indices and logo that you won’t find anywhere else. Adorned with Super Luminova C3 luminous filling, every single indices offers an optimal reading from am to pm.
Japanese movements are produced much more efficiently thus have lower price tag and comparable quality and accuracy with some Swiss manufacturer. That is why we decide to use NH35 manufactured by Seiko that has centuries of experience in watch making world. NH35 is a hacking and self-winding automatic movement with duration of over 41 hours, servicing in the same cost range as standard Swiss movement with a comparable reliability.
In order to accompany the solid case, we use solid 316L stainless steel for the bracelet as well. We use different polishing finish for different parts of the bracelet to enhance its visual attraction. It is also complemented with folding flip-lock clasp that functions smoothly and flawlessly.
First impression matters. That’s what motivates us to make watch boxes that have you at hello. Made out of teak solid wood, the box stands up for elegance that it keeps inside.
We stand behind the products we create. Thus, every Saxodate comes with 2-years warranty and we will be responsible for manufacturing defect.

Risks and challenges
Despite higher production cost in comparison with other manufacturer available to us, we have decided to work with a manufacturer in Hong Kong that have decades of experience working with watch brand that have featured in Basel World(the biggest watch exhibition that takes place in Basel annually). This decision is exactly to minimize our risk completing this project.
Secondly, this project was an alteration from our first project with the same product just different movement. this decision is due to our original movement would not be available in the next 8 months. If there are still any delays our backers will be the first to know regarding this delay and updates.
At this moment, we are doing this full-time. We have a working prototype of Saxodate and will do the final quality inspections ourselves to make sure that each and every Saxodate that we shipped have the same high standard. Despite zero experience in watch project related, we are confident to successfully fulfil your order based on our years of experience working with manufacturer overseas.
Lastly, we really appreciate the trust that you have given us and we will strive to do our best to return it with great quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
