About

 

By cutting up all the profits of the middle men who gain by marking up the product price, our team at GUFO made for the first time ever a honest luxury timepiece made by wood, offering the same quality of a 5.000$ luxury watch for less than 150$, directly to you.

We have spent the past years working directly with leaders in the watchmaking industry to come up with a unique, high quality, limited watch collection that we know everyone will love.

You will have a unique beautifully handcrafted in Italy piece of design. Coming with a japanese automatic movement, that will never need any battery. As long as the watch is being worn it retains energy. This means that it automatically winds itself as the wearer moves the wrist naturally.

    Every design fit very well for both men and women. To make sure you have the best fit possible we will use a premium wood that will drastically reduce allergies and irritations. The Wood will make your watch more stylish and more unique. 

 

Taking great care to every single detail, Such as the back of your watch, the clock hands, and the case. Unique details, never seen in any watch.

We're so confident with the quality that we guarantee them. Each timepiece is backed by a 10 year warranty.

Your watch is strictly limited edition. We believe that luxury timepieces should be exclusive and shouldn't be mass produced. You will find the serial number of your watch on the back, this will mean that you are one of the lucky to have one of the new GUFO wooden luxury watch collection.   

On the back of your watch, you will also find an amazing and unique engrave of the italian cities we love: Florence, Taormina, Milano, Catania. You have just to choose wich one you want to have on your back.

 

 

 

Watch material: depending on the model we use premium wood of the following type: maple, koa, ebony or zebra wood.

Water resistant: 5 ATM, 50 meters  

Glass: Sapphire coated crystal with anti-scratch surface finish  

Strap size: 22 mm, best fit for 14 - 23 cm wrist  

Strap lenght: 24cm adjustable to fit with any wrist width.

Movement: Japan automatic Miyota 8215 produced by Citizen

Buckle: Stainless steel (grade 316L) ,  deployable buckle  

Warranty: 10 years limited warranty against manufacturing defects.

 

To ensure its quality we used a high quality wood and stainless steel, handcrafted by our italian artisans. Lastly we used a strong sapphire crystal glass, resistant to any bump and made to last 100 years.

 

 

 

Wood is not steel, fortunally. The contact with the skin is much confortable with the wood and you won't have any irritation or sign made by your watch. 

What’s more, your watch will weigh less than a ring. The wood is incredibly light and your wrist will be so comfortable since it feels like you are not wearing a watch at all.

 

 

While we manufacture our watches to the highest standard of quality, they may not be a perfect fit for everyone.  

If you feel that the watch did not meet your expectations, simply contact us and we will send you a 100% refund.

We have a great customer care who will drive you through the refund process.

 

 

We have worked very hard over the past years to reach this stage. We will continue to do our best until you are have received your GUFO watch and are fully satisfied!

This is more than a watch, it’s a concept. A concept we want you to be a part of.

Risks and challenges

The more we raise, the more we can do.

The idea is to manufacture watch collections in a limited quantity. Each collection will have unique details different by each other.

We have 3 stores in Italy, Milan, Catania, Taormina, (you are welcome to visit us, we will offer you a cup of expresso) and a warehouse equipped to send hundreads of products every day. We just need to be funded to start the production of this beautiful limited collection.

Once Kickstarter releases the funds, we can pay the initial deposit to begin a big production. Production time takes roughly 30 days depending on the quantity of the order. Our team will then ship the orders to our awesome backers! We have experience with shipping software and thermal printers which should make for a very smooth process.
