Automatic Movements

A-56©

A-56 ETA 2824-2 Automatic

The A-56© is one of GRD's 'Early' Series of watches. Made for the racing enthusiast - a stylish individual who takes pleasure in automotive history. 

The ideology at the forefront of this project is the combination of passion and precision.

GRD specialise in One-Hand watches with a uniquely innovative way of time telling.

The watch face is broken into large hour, medium 30-minute & small 5-minute intervals. The singular hand of the watch is used to tell the hour and approximate minute. 

For example, the A-56 below is set to 5.30.

0 = 12.00

10 = 1.00

20 = 2.00

etc.

    Our LD-AB© is an extension of our Rally Series of watches. Inspired by the Lancia Delta Integrale, which dominated the World Rally Championship in the 1980s and early 1990s. This piece has been re-imagined as an Abarth spec tacho with the Red/Orange numerals and increments.

    Production Timeline

    The prototypes of each watch have already been produced and approved and we are ready to go into production. We will begin production once the Kickstarter has ended. We have been conservative with our timeline as we would rather overestimate than underestimate:  

    Kickstarter Launch: Mid-April 2018

    Kickstarter completion: Mid-May 2018

    Manufacturing begins: End of May 2018

    Final checks/Packaging/Shipping: Third/Fourth Quarter 2018

    Shipping worldwide, customs duties and taxes are buyers responsibility upon delivery, EU customers your delivery will come from within the EU therefore no duties/taxes for you.

    Risks and challenges

    GRD has developed as a successful watch brand over the past years with multiple designs currently for sale. (https://www.grd.watch/)

    We realise creating and delivering a product is a complicated process and sometimes with unexpected delays, however this is why we have taken the utmost care and diligent preparation. We have the experience gained from over six years in business with customers worldwide.

    We have a well-established relationship with reliable manufacturing partners, tried and tested prototypes and are confident in the quality.

    We are going to keep our backers/buyers informed during the production process and this will be done with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible.

    If along the way we find that there is a setback in production, or there is a delay somewhere during process in the timeline, we will be transparent and keep all of our backers informed.
