Deux Janus - NE86 Automatic


Redefining the Chronograph

A well-crafted chronograph watch offers the perfect meld of engineering and style. 

But sometimes, all those complex mechanics can feel somewhat overbearing. 

Especially when all you want is to know how much time has passed in the day without having to worry about anything else.

Of course, not to get a chronograph would be to miss out on the cutting-edge precision such a device offers.

We looked at the current range of chronographs out there and we couldn’t find a reasonably priced watch where you could turn off and on the complexity at will.

So, we decided to create one of our own… 

One with all the features and professional look of top-end high-street watches. 

Now, we’re proud to present the Deux dual-faced automatic chronograph.

A Watch You Can Change to Suit Your Mood 

We’ve engineered into the Deux Collection a one-turn adjustable diaphragm

Simply twist the front face clockwise to close the aperture, revealing a sleek, zen-like design.

So, no matter if you’re in the mood for simplicity or precision, the Deux Collection will cater to your needs.

Designed for collectors or those who appreciate fine things, this automatic chronograph is an essential item for any distinguished collection.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that the Deux Collection is a limited edition.

OUR WARRANTY

Deux Watches offers a two-year warranty. If your watch is suffering from any mechanical or structural defect, simply send your watch back to us for a free replacement.



It’s All About the Movement

A great watch isn’t just about the design, but the mechanics that power it.

The Deux Janus is powered by the brand-new 34-jewel Seiko NE86 movement with a power reserve of 45 hours. This lightweight movement vibrates at a rate of 28,000 Hz an hour, offering intense precision, both for the watch and the chronograph. 

And we've taken things one step further by introducing the Deux Janus Elite, with a superior Swiss Caliber SW500 movement, for those who want the absolute best out of their watch.

After a lot of market research, we came away impressed by the specifications that Seiko and Swiss Sellita offer in their movements. Their technology combines a column wheel and a vertical clutch, which gives the watch great vibrations, without the jerkiness that you often find in similar watches.

It took us a long time to find the ideal movement for the Deux Janus Collection which wouldn’t drastically increase the cost of the watch.

We believe we made the right choice with the Seiko NE86 and Sellita as it helps keep the watch lightweight, while still being amazingly accurate and feeling great on the wrist as it ticks away.

Other Features

We’ve worked hard to design a watch that has the high-quality of much more expensive high-street brands without costing the earth.

The Deux Collection has everything you expect from a top-of-the-range watch, including:

  • Sapphire scratch proof glass to protect your watch from wear and tear
  • Highly durable tempered stainless steel with laser-cut engravings on the back face
  • A premium hand-crafted Italian leather strap with an optional add-on metal strap
  • A low weight
  • And a great look and feel that will make you feel proud to wear the Deux Watches, whatever the occasion


Deux Janus Elite - Swiss Movement



Deux Chimera - Automatic 9122

For those on a lower budget, we’re proud to offer the Deux Chimera. This has the high-quality diaphragm and build features of the Deux Janus and a lower-spec Miyota 9122 movement in place of the Seiko NE86 or Swiss SW500.


Will I be forced to pay high VAT / Customs fees?

In short, no. 

When we send out the backer surveys, we will give you an option to pick a low declared value so you pay little to no VAT / Customs fees, or the option to pick a declaration of the full amount you paid.

We will work with our couriers to make sure you pay as low a price as possible when it arrives.

Use of Funds

We’ll use our funds to order in bulk, allowing us to deliver more watches at lower prices. We’ll also put funds towards distribution and marketing, both nationally and globally.

Customer reviews


Our Process

We worked hard to design a high-quality luxury watch at a reasonable price. We went through many prototypes and examined many different movements until we found the right design combination.

We take great care in assembling our watches using professional watchmaking techniques to ensure high precision and quality design aesthetics. We continuously monitor quality throughout the process, from design to delivery. 

At the end of the day, we want to ensure we’re delivering the highest quality at the fairest price.

Risks and challenges

We’ve worked on watchmaking projects before and we’ve also thoroughly analyzed the market to anticipate any risks. This has allowed us to create a solid delivery plan.

We’re working with top-of-the-range suppliers (including big names like Seiko) and we assess everyone we partner with to make sure that they are skilful and professional.

In the extremely unlikely event that anything goes wrong, we’ll keep you informed at all times and work hard to resolve all issues in the shortest possible time.

We’re excited to provide our brand-new range of Deux watches to you first here on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your continuing support in being part of the Kickstarter community.
