About

The Superellipse is a premium automatic watch at an accessible price point. Its unique and unorthodox design is highly provocative and is destined to polarize opinions. Its name is inspired by the superellipse curve, which is the mathematical representation of the iconic cushion shape.

At a glance: 

  • Designed and engineered in Singapore.
  • Seiko NH35A movement.
  • 41 mm wide, 11.9 mm thick, 50 mm lug-to-lug.
  • Lug width 22 mm.
  • Sapphire crystal.
  • 100 m water resistance.
  • Stainless steel 316L case, brushed and polished.
  • Custom decorative screw heads for bezel and caseback.
  • Engraved logo on crown.
  • 2-colour pad-printed dial, 6H date window. 
  • Applied hour indices with Super-Luminova C1.
  • Super-Luminova C1 on minute and hour hands.
  • Customized straps by Hadley-Roma. 

Here's what others have to say about us:

Many watchmakers compromise their design to match available stock components in order to minimize cost and maximize profit. 

Not so in Jubileon. 

We know exactly what we want the watch to look like, and we make no compromise. Except for the movement, we have designed and customized every single component in Superellipse to ensure that you will get a truly unique watch.

With deep experience in the advanced manufacturing industry, we uphold the highest engineering standards when it comes to the engineering of the Superellipse. Every component is modelled on computer, so that our manufacturers know exactly what we want and we know exactly what you are getting.

The heart of the Superellipse is the Seiko NH35A movement. At a fraction of the cost of a Swiss movement, the Seiko NH35A delivers incredible value and durability. With a reliable workhorse powering every tick, the Superellipse will be your trusted companion for many years to come.

Seiko NH35A features and specifications:

  • 21,600 vibrations per hour (6 ticks per second).
  • 24 Jewels.
  • More than 41 hours running time.
  • Hour, minute, sweep second.
  • Date window at 6H position.

As mechanical engineers, we make no secret of our love for screws, bolts and nuts. Therefore, rather than pressed-down, the bezel and the caseback are screwed-down to the main body with four screws each. The screws, which have customised screw heads that are beautifully polished, also double as ornamental adornments to the four corners of the bezel and the caseback.

The Superellipse dial features the ‘railway’ minute track, a classic design element. To produce a combination of two colours, the minute track is pad-printed in a 2-step process. This is an extremely precise process that requires perfect alignment of the two prints. When done properly, the result is an exquisite marriage of two colours. The same 2-step process is also applied for pad-printing of the Jubileon logo on the dial.

The hands and applied indices are both painted with Super-Luminova C1, ensuring that you will never miss its ultra-bright luminescence in the dark.

We have successfully struck a partnership with Hadley-Roma to supply premium, custom straps of the finest quality for the Superellipse. Hadley-Roma has been manufacturing and distributing quality watch attachments for more than 100 years.

At Jubileon, we have carefully curated and paired the following style combinations.

Errata: Leather black shown above is with silver dial, rather than pearl. Correct photo is shown below.

Jubileon is an independent and aspiring watchmaker in sunny Singapore. We are a team of 3 who are crazy about automatic watches, one of whom is a serial backer on Kickstarter. Needless to say, we only design and create watches that we ourselves would be proud to wear.  

Risks and challenges

1. Production delay on supplier side causing delay in delivery to you. This is unlikely, and buffer time has been added to mitigate. That means it is likely that you will receive your watch early!

2. The quality of the prototype is superb, but in all manufacturing, quality of the production batch may differ. We will work very closely with supplier and apply the strictest quality check in place to ensure that each and every Superellipse that we send out pass our very high bar.
