If you like to support us, we can offer you TheModern Art Watch™ from our first production in 2017 at a very low price. - We will sell our first watches to our supporters basically at the whole sales prices, which is about half the price of the later retail price. - The future retail price will be in range 250 to 280 CHF (~250 to 280 USD respectively). We offer 4 different kind of rewards with 1, 2, 3 or 6 watches.
All prices other than Swiss Francs, are only indicative.
End of Kickstarter Campaign & Production Start
The Kickstarter campaign will end March 19, 2017. Afterwards we will start of the production and get your watch/es produced until July 2017.
Shipment & Arrival
In July 2017 we will start shipping the watches by Swiss Federal Mail or by an equivalent priory service. The arrival you can then expect in Switzerland after 3 days, in Europe after 4 to 8 days and in USA, Canada & Japan after 5 to 10 days. - The delivery of the first 1000 watches will therefore be completed before end of August 2017.
Scaling of Production Capacity
In a case we can produce and deliver more than 1000 watches to our supporters, we would require for the later orders a bit more time. Our production capacity is in a range of 1000 watches per month.– Therefore later orders would be served correspondingly later. - Of course we would take early actions that in such a case the later orders would still be shipped within shortest possible time. - And of course, first orders will be served first.- The shipment of the second 1000 watches would therefore be completed 1 month later.

The idea of for The Modern Art Watch ™ goes back to 2014. During 2015 we evaluated various options to implement this idea. In 2016 finally we decided to take the required steps and launch this watch under its own brand name.
The Modern Art Watch™
It was my intention not only to make a watch, but a piece of art. I had a geometric, abstract and minimalist design in mind. In 2016 I finalized the design. In parallel I established a partnership with a Swiss watch company, who did the prototyping and who will do later the production of this watch. In 2017 we planned to produce the first series of watches.
In order to underline the uniqueness of this watch it will be launched under its own brand name EOYPSO®. - We are based in Switzerland. Our watches will be Swiss made. We will sell our product worldwide. We are a micro-company, but we may grow up-on time
In 2016 we invested a lot of passion and quite some time and money to develop and prototype The Modern Art Watch™. When we was searching ways to raise the required means, to do the series production of our watch, we discovered Kickstarter. - We loved the idea, to let early lovers of our watch to participate. - Our supporters on Kickstarter will receive this watch at our initial whole sales price, which is roughly half the price the watch will be sold later.
Your support will give us the required means to start the series production of this watch. - Additional means will be used to take the next steps towards bringing this watch to a larger audience.
We hope that you like what we created and what we plan to do. If you decided to support us, we thank you in advance and we will be proud to send you your personal Modern Art Watch™ as soon as possible.
