Stretch Goal #1 - *FREE DEPLOYANT*
All backers will receive a FREE DEPLOYANT if we will reach the goal of €20,000.
Please, spread the word by sharing this project with everybody you know !
WE ARE BACK !
yes, we are back !
…because we do not want to give up our dream !
Unfortunately, the first Kickstarter campaign launched last March did not reach the goal due to several reasons (goal to ambitious, too many rewards, lack of clarity in the proposal, etc… etc…) but our Italian team and the network of artisans and designers who have cooperated on this project does not want to give up their dream and their ambitions to create a micro-brand in the “Made in Italy” artisan watchmaking industry.
Our Team after a careful evaluation of its products and offer and, in particular, after a detailed and critical analysis of the previous campaign, decided to come back with a new Kickstarter campaign that will start on June 28th 2018.
The campaign will focus on the same product, the Trident “adventure” style watch, but the colors set available for the colored ring supplied with the kit will be expanded and will now include red, blue, green and “metal” to reproduce the colorations of the stitches of the straps.
The rewards will not be four as in the first campaign, but only two option will be considered: the entry level called “Client” (watch and box) and the full optionals version called “Top” (watch, box, four straps and three colored rings).
The major novelties concerns the goal of the campaign and the cost of the two rewards. More specifically, the goal will be decreased from EUR 60,000 to EUR 15,000.
As far as the cost of the rewards are concerned, they are significantly reduced:
– The cost of the full-optionals offer (called “Top”) will fall from EUR 360 of the old campaign to the super-reduced pledge of EUR 260.
– The entry level offer (called “Client”) will keep the same pledge of the previous campaign (EUR 195). However, the cost will fall to EUR 165 for 100 pieces of the “early bird” offer and to EUR 145 for the very first 50 backers, that will qualify as ” super early birds”.
These two special offers will including a Limited Edition watch (numbered from 001 to 150, engraved on the case back and printed on the dial) and also three outer SS ring (red, blue and metal colors) to customize the watch! Shipments will remain free of charge all over the world as requested from the backers of the previous campaign.
GallioTempo company was born from the passion for watches instilled to the founder by his grandfather, a farmer from a small town close to Vicenza called Gallio, and who used to show him his collection of pocket watches handed down from father to son through generations.
Our main focus is our costumer. Our objective is to provide Gallio Tempo luxury watches at affordable prices.
How to make this possible without scarifying quality? Differently from what typically done, we will reduce prices by completely cutting out distributors, wholesalers and retails stores.
That’s the way we can offer you an Italian luxury watch for less than €200.
This is our idea!
This is what we mean by Crowdfunding!

Italy is recognized as being a worldwide trendsetter and leader in design: the architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni claims that “Quite simply, we are the best” and that “We have more imagination, more culture, and are better mediators between the past and the future”. Italy today still exerts a vast influence on urban design, industrial design and fashion design worldwide and Italy’s iconic design has emerged into the common phrase “Made in Italy”. Italy’s age old traditions of world-class craftsmanship are a cornerstone for all Gallio Tempo make – the research and the quality of each material make it the watch made in Italy par excellence.
Citizen Miyota® 821A Automatic Movement
Our timepiece is powered by Miyota® 821A movement, a mechanical movement from Japanese company Citizen®. It is considered one of the most reliable on the market. The main spring is powered by the caliber through a winding rotor excited by your daily wrist movement. The movement has a power reserve built-in, therefore our watch will keep running while not being used. Miyota 821A has 45 hours of power reserve! Rubies are used because in the movement because of their hardness. More specifically, Miyota 821A is twenty-one jewels movement.
316L Stainless Steel Case
The 42mm diamenter case is made by 316L Stainless Steel. Stainless steels are notable for their corrosion resistance, which increases with increasing chromium content. Additions of molybdenum increase corrosion resistance in reducing acids and against pitting attack in chloride solutions. Thus, there are numerous grades of stainless steel with varying chromium and molybdenum contents to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and familiar lustre make it an ideal material for many applications and it is the most used material for luxury watches.
All of our watches are fitted with sapphire crystal, the most resistant crystal there is. Sapphire is a naturally growing crystal and the second hardest substance on the planet, so hard that only a diamond can scratch it.
Our sapphire crystal is cut from a polished slice of solid sapphire made by the fusion and crystallization of alumina.
The end result is beautiful, but more importantly hardly unbreakable.
Try to scratch it!
Colored SS Rings
We decided to make our Trident watch unique by implementing a detail that we had never seen in a luxury watch until now .
The stainless steel colored rings give at the watch a sporty and easy look, but in the same time enrich it in detail.
The color of the rings match perfectly with the stitching of the straps.. this match make our Trident watch the ideal watch for every daily look.
Four different colored rings (green, red, metal and blue) are available!
One watch and many customizations!
Swiss Super-LumiNova® pigments are the first choice of the watch industry for the highest possible afterglow performance. The material is non-radioactive, REACH compatible and resistant to high temperature and enviromental agents. It works like a storage battery where light charges the battery first and , afterwards, the light is continuously emitted. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again and the material does not suffer any ageing. It is chargeable with sunlight or artificial light. Mixed with a suitable specific binder, Swiss Super-LumiNova® is applied on dials and hands.
Sailcloth Straps by iWantAStraps.com

Its durable stamped sailcloth nylon coupled with its quick drying properties makes this strap the “go-to” strap for many watch enthusiast.

Risks and challenges
We are passionate watch lovers and want to create a luxury and adventure italian watch brand, inspired by the tradition and the classic style, but looking ahead to the future and the new tendencies of horology design.
Our style and work represent Italian manufacturing tradition.
We launch this campaign to seek passionate supporters for Italian brand and quality. Our TRIDENT collection is unique for who love watches and the world of luxury microbrand.
As we are already deep in the production process, we are several steps ahead of other projects, and have greatly lessened the number of steps our project will have to jump through after our campaign ends. It is always possible for delays with production though, so we have added some extra time in our estimates to provide for this.
We'll keep you informed every step of the way.
