Everything began with the idea of an unique gift, a special watch with both classic and modern touches, atemporal, with remarkable details that may be proudly passed from one generation to the next and looking for the maximum elegance.
That is how the idea of the Alexandre model was conceived.
This watch is made of 316L surgical steel with a polished case available in steel and rose gold. The dial has details that make it unique as the concentric circular pattern in the seconds minidial and a vertical engraved pattern throughout the lower dial.
The hour markers are moulded in stainless steel and carefully applied to the dial by hand, one by one.
All this covered by a sapphire crystal resistant to bumps and scratches and an Anti-Reflective (AR) coating.
Accompanied by a Ronda Swiss quartz movement that keeps the time accurately at all times and its 8mm thick, make it a piece of quality, details and elegance unique for the women and men that look for something more that a good watch.
With an urban design for the daily life and incorporating an elegant touch as well, this watch is remarkable for its versatility: for working, attending an informal dinner or any occasion you could imagine.
We will want create a different watch, modern, with character, with own spirit. And born Oakland Spirit

The back side is tighted and sealed to guarantee a 10ATM waterproof quality for the Oakland model and also incorporates all the information of the model engraved in laser.

Following our philosophy of making unique designs, we did not want to put less effort in our case. With a minimalist appearance and wrapped in luxurius-texture paper, this box contains a unique double-face pad which allows storing your watch and its additional straps.
It also allows some space below for the instructions manual and the guarantee certificate.
To make our watches we did not want to risk much and decided to trust in a manufacturer with more than 30 years of experience building watches for different European and American trademarks.
For a full year, we have been monitoring step by step the whole process of design and manufacture of our prototypes to ensure the maximum reliability and quality of the final product.
After receiving some prototypes, we have been inspecting each of them and made some resistance and waterproofing tests; and we are proud and happy with the results.
Right now, as soon as we receive our manufacturing estimate, we are ready to start making our watches as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges
We have already found a very reputable watch factory with 30 years experience that has made the prototypes you have seen above. The communication with the factory have been smooth and fast, this reduces the risks of manufacturing and delivery time substantially. Nevertheless we have set the delivery time in September of 2019 to make sure that all backers will receive their watches on time as promised. This will give us more time to overcome any problems that might occur during manufacturing or delivery.
To ensure that every watch is created to standard and delivered in time, we will be maintaining constant contact with the factory during the entire process of production.
We're going to keep our backers informed during the production process. We will do this with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible, for example when the watch cases are finished, when the dials are printed, during final assembly, when the final presentation boxes are made, etc…Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
