Our world timer shows the time for the main 24 time zones simultaneously whereas a traditional GMT can only monitor one other selected time zone. True world time watches traditionally cost upwards of $5,000 to $20,000, however we devised a new kind of solution. Using a clever dual-layer rotating disc system, we are able to reverse engineer the first quartz hybrid world timer using a Swiss GMT movement.
This isn’t our first rodeo. The World Traveller will be our fourth watch collection to be created by Kickstarter. Our quality, transparency, & pricing is second to none - we offer full warranties & communicate our production process from beginning to end.
We’re using the best materials and components we can find to build an excessively quality watch- Italian Natural Calf Leather, Swiss Movement, and 316L Stainless Steel Case with Oyster Bezel.
The case is to be sandblasted first, to have all the edges softened, but also brushed on the fluted oyster bezel, to offer a distinct surface. A fluted bezel, such as on a Rolex, practically doubles the available flat polished surface area on the bezel. Allowing not only a greater surface for light refraction, but also the ability to reflect light from different angles at the same time.
For the past 5 years we have chose to work with an established watch manufacturing group known for rigorous quality control. We have a great relationship with our manufacturing partners. We've thoroughly toured their facility multiple times and they are completely aligned with our goals. In 2017, they revamped all their facilities with the latest manufacturing equipment and processes.
With multiple stages in the manufacture and quality check process, we are confident in their ability to deliver a quality product. We were impressed with their sophisticated manufacture process including different rooms for assembly, air pressure checkpoints, water pressure stations, 48-hour timekeeping accuracy test, and (of course) a drop test. All of their facilities meet all necessary regulation and code for operation.
Though they host the manufacturing of many large retail brands, the general managers made sure all of our requirements were met and accommodated. Their experienced staff and attention to detail was what made our decision to choose them so easy. We, at Elliot Havok, are extremely confident they will meet our needs.
We will offer the Havok watch at wholesale pricing with radical transparency. Not only should the watch be priced so that nobody breaks their bank, but what goes into the watch should be disclosed.
By delivering directly to YOU, we can cut out all the middlemen markups.

Risks and challenges
If this project gets funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadlines. Projects often have trouble when facing the production process and deadlines for shipment.
The project could face possible challenges if the quality of the product or packaging does not meet our requirements after production. However, we have extensive experience and close relations in manufacturing and production.
In addition, we will not be outsourcing the post-production work to another company. Our team is prepared to ensure that post-funding will run like clockwork when the time comes (pun-intended).
Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present itself during the process of production. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and ahead of schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
