Let’s MAKE TOGETHER 100 top grade mechanical watches to complete last year DWISS R1 collection. We only need the funds to purchase the movement - Caliber ETA/PESEUX 7001.

Why a hand-wound movement? To keep the watchmaking tradition and make users to interact with their watches. We want to give you a real feeling of how mechanical movements used to be in the good old days. These movements are charged by winding the crown and give you an autonomy of 42 hours. And you can even engrave your name on it, only during the Kickstarter campaign

Caliber ETA/PESEUX 7001 is used by some of the most claimed luxury watch brands and keeps alive the best of watchmaking tradition. It is a hand wound movement of only 2,5 mm, 17 jewels, Incabloc shock protection system, 42 hours of power reserve, that nicely beats at a rate of 21'600 per hour (3Hz).

This masterpiece movement will be inside a sophisticated 316L stainless steel watch case with 40mm x 8mm dimensions, sapphire crystal with anti-reflection, and Italian leather (and Italian made) straps, with the option to have a stainless steel 3-link bracelet. The watch is 10 ATM (100 meters) water resistant. It will be available in Kickstarter for a limited time of 12 days.

Help us with the campaign, and we will be able to purchase the movements and deliver you a REAL high-end timepiece, giving you simply the best value for your money!!! With no fat, no add-ons and no markups!!!

We selected this article if you want to know more about the movement and compare some prices, that usually start at CHF 1,500 (CHF 1.00 ≈ USD 1.04).

All our straps are 100% Italian made, respecting Italy’s tradition in leather goods, handcrafted by artisans in an authentic leather workshop. Produced by the same manufacturer that supplies for the most renowned Italian luxury brands. Equipped with quick-release pins, the straps are easily interchangeable.

Every watch will be numbered on the caseback from 00 to 99, making 100 pieces per each model. You can make your watch unique by asking us to engrave on the movement any word you want up to 20 letters.

All watches come in a luxury wooden black mat box, with DWISS logo printed in black glossy, protected by a cardboard box. Inside you find the warranty, manual and a travel bag.

DWISS (Design Watch Independent Switzerland)  is a multi design-award-winning company founded in Switzerland in 2011, by Rafael Simoes Miranda, a Brazilian born naturalized Italian designer. He has been designing watches for more than a decade. With a portfolio of more than 300 different watches designed for 15 different brands, he was also a watch designer teacher in Milan and won important design awards, like the Red Dot Design Award.

DWISS has been in the market for more than 6 years and has participated of the most important watch fairs worldwide, such as BaselWorld (2014 and 2015) and Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair (2014 and 2015). In 2016, it cut the retails and distributors, and concentrated on online direct sales, making it possible to implement its selling proposition to provide watches with no mark-ups.

In a normal retail channel, the price of our models could go as far as CHF 1,500. Because we have cut the retailers, we are able to sell online directly to clients for CHF 900. However, we will reward our Kickstarter backers with watches for half of the price (and less than 1/3 of the price if the watches were going through a normal retail channel), just during this campaign, that will last for 12 days. THE REAL DEAL!

DWISS R1 – The Greatest Crowdfunding Watch 

Funded in 4 MINUTES and reaching CHF 212'582,00 in pledges, DWISS made the greatest watch into crowdfunding history by presenting for the first time a Swiss made tourbillon. The collection also have automatics and quartz watches. You can PRE-ORDER the previous models here.

Automatic Swiss Watch With Innovative Time Reading System 

Funded in less than one hour and reaching CHF 407'837,00 in pledges, DWISS presented the most innovative Swiss made timepiece in crowdfunding. A watch that won two design awards in 2017, becoming the most awarded watch in crowdfunding.

Risks and challenges

DWISS's team is composed by established watch designers with a decade of experience. Company has partnered with producers in Switzerland in a reliable collaboration. Watches are produced under our supervision since 2011.

We made two successful Kickstarter campaigns in the last two years, and we are ready to this third one. All the tooling needed to produce the watches have already been made with the funds of our previous campaign. This third campaign has to generate funds to purchase solely the new movements and the new caseback to make the 100 limited edition mechanical watches. We are ready to go, how about you?
