Watches with Antique Metal from the Original Hollywood Sign

$51,321

71

The original Hollywood Sign was built in 1923, constructed for a real estate development called HOLLYWOODLAND. The word LAND was later removed. The prominent advertisement would go on to become one of the world’s most iconic and recognized landmarks; a symbol of hope, glamour, success and the American dream. The original sign was replaced in 1978. Hollywood Watch Company acquired the remaining metal of the original Hollywood Sign in 2017. Read more at www.hollywood.watch

The metal on each plaque has been treated to maintain the integrity of the authentic weathering of the sign, and hence, no two are identical! Each watch is inscribed with a limited-edition number on the case back.

Only a limited number of watch enthusiasts will ever own one of these remarkable timepieces while HWC has enough metal.

The Premiere Watch is being manufactured by Roventa-Henex, one of the most reputable watchmakers in Switzerland according to the strictest quality Swiss watchmaking standards.

Please note: The crowns in the prototypes have been pulled out for demonstration purpose only. Since filming this video, the straps have been upgraded to a deployment buckle.

Please note: More straps will be announced soon. Final strap choices can be confirmed at the end of the campaign in October.

HWC stands firmly behind our products and we are committed to fantastic service. The Premiere Hollywood Watch is being manufactured in the strict tradition of Swiss watchmaking, and is individually tested to ensure that it functions perfectly. Nevertheless, the watch is covered by a limited International guarantee against any manufacturing defect for a period of two years from the date of receipt. See warranty details.

If you don't like your watch, you can return it within 30 days from the date you received it. Please note that we will only accept returns for watches that have NOT been used, worn, damaged or modified in any way. That means you must return your watch in the exact condition in which you received it, with all the tags, plastic stickers, paperwork, box, etc. to qualify for a refund or exchange.

We offer FREE shipping within the contiguous United States (48 adjoining U.S. states plus Washington, D.C - This excludes Alaska and Hawaii). All other destinations, including International shipments, are charged a nominal $15 shipping fee.

International customers are responsible for taxes and duties charged by their respective countries. Visit simplyduty.com to calculate approximate duties. Florida State Customers: Please add 6% to your pledge to account for sales tax.

Risks and challenges

Our team has spent the past two years on product development, working with the top watch manufacturers in the US and Switzerland. We have conducted manufacturer site inspections which enabled us to confidently select the very best design and manufacturing partners for our brand.

Our prototypes have been rigorously inspected and tested to make sure the quality is what we expect in a Swiss-made timepiece.

We are confident that we will meet or beat our projected delivery dates. We have allowed extra time for any unexpected delays in the manufacturing process. Our manufacturers are ready and waiting to activate production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal. Our shipping is not outsourced, we handle all shipping logistics in-house through our own warehouse, ensuring prompt and safe handling and delivery.

Our backers will be well-informed and updated during the campaign and post-campaign.

Thank you to the Kickstarter community for your support as we make history together!
