Inspiration & Design:
I have always been a fan of the diver watch. I set out to create my own diver watch that was timeless and could look great in any setting with the versatility of interchangeable watch bands.
My design first began as simple hand sketches.
Drafts led to further smart pin designs to our final system and ultimately our final product design mock up.
Why is the Field & Crew: Heritage Watch so special?
The Heritage watch is the first and only watch to feature interchangeable watch bands via our smart pin system. We have engineered a watch pin system so that you can easily remove the watch pin with your fingers. Simply interchange your Stainless Steel, Shark Mesh, Canvas or Leather stud watch band to fit your style, function, or occasion without a jeweler or tooling necessary.
The Heritage watch is a heirloom worthy mechanical watch; Vintage in design with a modern automatic movement with 25 jewel that can be worn forever. High quality components means this watch will keep ticking while keeping you in custom style.
With your pledge and support of the Field & Crew: Heritage Watch Kickstarter project, we will be able to bring this awesome timepiece to life and put people back to work right here in the United States.
Pledge! -Ditch the battery, leave your jeweler at their store, and customize your watch on your time!
Reasons you need the Heritage Watch:
- Functional - Stylish - Versatile
- No tools required
- Change your watch band in under 30 seconds flat
- You won't need a jeweler to change the battery (There isn't one!)

- It's like having 5 watches for the price of 1

State of Project:
Currently, we have a fully functioning prototype watch. We have completed the design phase and tested functionality. We have selected and secured a leading manufacturer of wrist watches that has been in business for over 50 years for our components. Should we exceed our goal, mass production will not be a problem.
We are currently seeking funding through Kickstarter to begin full scale production of the Heritage watch. We will also use funds to acquire materials, extra watch components, hire help in the USA and design our website.
It will take about 50-60 days for production. Backers can expect to receive their pledge gifts at the end of September.
That's our project! Thanks again for taking the time to check out the Field & Crew: Heritage Watch!
Risks and challenges
This project is well past a napkin sketch. It has taken a very long time and many hours to get to this point. This project was launched after a year of designing/testing our smart pin system to ensure a high quality product that was functional. This project was launched after a fully functioning prototype watch and smart pin system was complete to limit risks and challenges that are present during designing and initial manufacturing phases.
While most would worry about being able to meet demand, the manufacturer we have sought out has been in business a very long time and has ensured us that he will not have a problem meeting demand should it exceed our expectations.
The journey has been long and now we need your pledges to bring the Heritage watch into production.
