What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Modern Art Watch ™ 

 

The history of The Modern Art Watch ™ goes back to 2014 when E.Sarofim, the designer of this watch, had the inspiration for this artifact: The design consists of the tree colors white, red and black, is strictly geometric, abstract and remembers on minimal art. 

 

 

During 2015 we evaluated various options to implement this idea. In 2016 we decided to take the required steps and launch this watch under its own brand name. During 2016 a partnership with a Swiss watch company was established, who took care about the prototyping and who will produce this watch in future.      

EOYPSO®  

In order to underline the uniqueness of this watch, it will be launched under its own brand name called EOYPSO. - We are based in Switzerland. Our watches will be Swiss made and we plan to sell our watch worldwide. We are yet a very small company, but hope to grow upon time.

Why Kickstarter  

Until now we invested for the development of our watch a lot of passion and quite some time and money. - In order to cover at least some of the scale-up-costs for the series production we decided, to try to find people, who would like to support us here on Kickstarter. - Also, we love the idea, to let early supporters participate in our work. - Our early supporters shall receive our watches form the first series production basically at our whole sales price, being roughly half the price the watch will be sold later through retailers. 

Do you like what we created and want to support us? - If so, we want to thank you already here and will be proud to send you your personal Modern Art Watch™  as soon we have it produced.
