Project summary - Hamtun Watches Neon Automatic

Neon Automatic is the latest watch from Hamtun Watches. The follow up to 2016's titanium H1, the Neon collection is powered by a Swiss automatic movement (the STP 1-11, based on the ETA 2824-2) and features a 316L stainless steel case, a ceramic bezel and sapphire crystals front and back. Hamtun Watches make affordable watches and are based in Southampton, UK.

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter campaign. All rewards from our first campaign have been delivered. We have good ongoing relationships with our suppliers and have received high quality samples. We have shared these samples with independent reviewers and linked to their reviews (where published) within this campaign.

We handled shipping ourselves on our last campaign which delayed things slightly beyond the advertised date. This time we are using third parties to manage the backer surveys and shipping, so delivery should be smooth and fast.

We have built in some slack to our advertised delivery date to cover potential delays importing the goods through customs or any other unforeseen circumstances. Based on the knowledge gained during our first project, we are confident we can deliver on schedule and to a high standard.

From day one we will be active in the comments and we will post a minimum of one project update per month until all rewards are delivered, even if that update is just to say that things are on schedule. We're always active on social media so we are easy to get hold of if you ever have questions about your pledge or the project. We maintain a YouTube channel and will post monthly video updates there as well, detailing progress and showing stock as it arrives with us.
