HYPERION:🇨🇭MOVEMENT AUTOMATIC WATCH ASSEMBLED IN 🇺🇸

$57,056

                             NOW AVAILABLE IN METEORITE! 

Hi Kickstarter,

We're excited to be back with HYPERION – the next evolution from Collins Watch Company. Our journey began right here just two years ago with the launch of our first watch, the Bronson. Retaining quality features customers loved in the Bronson (100-meter water resistance, sapphire crystal, Super-LumiNova), HYPERION adds new layers of refinement, including the spectacular Swiss-made Sellita SW200 automatic movement. 

Every Collins watch is assembled, tested, and tuned in the USA, and backed by a 1-year warranty and 30-day return policy. We have already manufactured the first round of watches and are ready to begin delivering right after our campaign ends. Only production watches were used for our photos and videos, so what you see is what you'll get. Thank you for helping us make this project a reality. We think you will love HYPERION.

                                                           - Jimmy Collins, Creator

  •  ZULU NYLON - Four-Loop Heavy-Duty Nylon Zulu Strap. Available in Green or Black with Silver or Black hardware. Select color at campaign end.
  •  NYLON/LEATHER - Nylon Sport B-2 Genuine Leather-Lined Watch Strap by Geckota in Cadet Grey. (Recommended with the Carbon watch.)
  •  PREMIUM LEATHER -  Gunny "Caitlin 8" Premium Leather Strap. Handmade from Italian calf leather. Comes with COLLINS-branded hardware matched to your watch color.

The newly-released Hyperion meteorite dial is composed of slices of the Muonionalusta meteorite, which crash-landed on Earth over a million years ago in present-day Sweden. The beautiful "Widmanstätten" pattern exhibited by this other-worldly material is truly unique–in fact, no two watches will ever be exactly the same. Only 20 of these pieces are being released at this time and they will be available for June delivery. Pledge for this one-of-a-kind piece while you can. Words cannot describe how it will shimmer and shine on your wrist. 


DOUBLE-DOMED SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL
Sapphire is the strongest material available for a watch crystal. Being one of the hardest stones on Earth, it's virtually scratch-proof. Our sapphire is also coated with anti-reflective material so you can get a crystal-clear view of the dial. For HYPERION we went with double-domed sapphire, to give it that extra dapper look. 

100 METER WATER RESISTANCE
100 meters is a lot of meters. We've built HYPERION for true all-weather use. You can swim with it, shower with it, and take it just about anywhere.

SELLITA SW200 SWISS-MADE AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT
The Sellita SW200 movement is one of the Swiss standards. Respected for its accuracy and reliability, this movement rarely needs service and will keep your watch ticking for many years to come.

SUPER-LUMINOVA
Super-LumiNova is a Swiss-made pigment with strong phosphorescent properties. In other words, it glows in the dark–and quite well! Our lume application is thick so you'll be able to clearly read your watch in the dark. It also just looks cool.

BRUSHED 316L STAINLESS STEEL
Often referred to as "surgical grade steel," 316L has become a standard in quality watch manufacturing. And it makes sense; 316L stainless steel is an incredibly strong material with extremely high resistance to corrosion. It will last a lifetime. We went with a brushed finish on HYPERION to give it some real panache. Just the right amount of shine.

Our first watch, the Bronson, was inspired by the world of music and audio engineering, and that influence is still definitely present in this watch. For instance, you'll notice the same distinctive "volume knob" crown. However, this time around, we wanted to streamline and simplify the design to really highlight the incredible features we’ve put into this watch—like the Sellita SW200 Swiss-made automatic movement and our customized rotor plate, which you can see through the watch's sapphire exhibition case back. In designing HYPERION, we thought a lot about lifestyle and how our watches are actually used in the wild. We envisioned the road warriors out there, always on the move, always off to their next gig, meeting, or rendezvous. In short, we aimed to achieve a true "go-anywhere" luxury watch. We hope yours will travel with you.

Manufacturing of the first round of HYPERION watches has already been completed! We have designed our campaign so that we will be able to start delivering to our first backers within a couple of weeks of receiving your backer surveys. We are also prepared to begin our next production order the moment we sell out of the initial production quantity during the course of this campaign (fingers crossed). We have stock of all straps and our packaging is ready to go too. We will be sure to keep you posted throughout the campaign and will do our best to accommodate your requests. Each backer will get a tracking number for their watch as soon as it ships. We estimate all Extreme Early Bird watches will ship by mid-June, and the rest of the awards should ship by the end of September. If you have any questions, you can always reach us at support@collinswatch.com.

In addition to our June 2019 delivery guarantee for Extreme Early Bird backers (and some Super Early Bird rewards), we are pleased to offer a one-year warranty on all watches. Should anything go wrong with your watch, just email us and we'll take care of it. If your watch is damaged due to "human error" (i.e. dropping from a tall building, deep sea diving, sledge hammer incidents), we'll be happy to offer you a repair or replacement at a steep discount. We are proud of the manufacturing quality of our watches and fully stand behind our products. If you have any issues after the warranty period, we will do our best to accommodate you. We've designed our watches to last for a lifetime and will do everything we can to keep yours ticking no matter what happens. Just please, no blenders. 

Collins Watch Company launched right here on Kickstarter in 2017 with an automatic field watch, called the Bronson. After the success of our first campaign, we began selling our products on collinswatch.com, and expanded our footprint through partnerships with amazing folks like www.longislandwatch.com. Then we hit the road, participating in shows like WindUp, District Time, and LAmicroLUX. We've gotten to know many great people in this industry over the last two years and have met thousands of watch guys and gals. You are our people. In designing HYPERION, we took a lot of hard-earned experience in mind and tried to create a watch the community would appreciate.

Collins Watch Company is proudly based in Los Angeles, CA. We are always reachable through our website or by email at info@collinswatch.com.  We look forward to hearing from you. 

All of our watches are assembled, tested, and tuned in the USA. This is an important part of who we are. We are proud to be a part of the microbrand watch movement and are passionate about supporting the growth of American jobs in craft industries like ours. We've sourced quality parts from around the world which meet or exceed industry standards, and we are very excited to be using the Swiss-made Sellita SW200 automatic movement for HYPERION. All of our watches are pressure tested and certified for 10ATM (100-meter) water resistance and we have put multiple quality controls in place to ensure every watch we ship meets a rigorous set of standards. We stand by our watches 100% and do our best to exceed your expectations.


Risks and challenges

Having backed many Kickstarter campaigns ourselves, we realize that campaign promises don't always match up to campaign realities. That's why we did everything possible to make this campaign "rock solid." We have already manufactured the first batch of watches, and every single one has been painstaking tested and tuned at our American facilities. We have also pressure tested and certified each watch for 10ATM (100-meter) water resistance. We also check your watch again before shipping to ensure all systems are a "go." And we back each watch with a 1-year warranty. So, if anything goes wrong in that time (aside from damage due to misuse), we will fix it free of charge. This is our third Kickstarter campaign, so we know the ropes and have always worked hard to meet our customers expectations. If you have pledged for a watch with September delivery, please note that your watch will be part of the second Hyperion production order. Due to availability of supplies, it is possible this order could get delayed slightly, though we feel confident we will deliver on time. Of course, with any project you never know with total certainty what lies ahead! We will do our best to deal with any issues that come up along the way and promise to stay in touch with you and always be open and honest.
