NUB Watches - Swiss Precision and British Engineering

£10,737

We are NUB Watches, a small team based in London, England, and we’ve been working hard for the past year to bring you a perfectly balanced and unique timepiece. The watch is made to last in both style and durability with Swiss precision and British engineering.

Without compromising on looks or quality, we’ve created a Swiss-made watch at a fraction of the cost. Now, the prototypes are made, the production is set, and with your help, we’re ready to start manufacturing.

The N1 collection is the first line of watches created by NUB. We’ve spent the past year refining the design, materials and craftsmanship, and now the watches are ready to come to life.

The minimalistic design will keep the watch feeling stylish, modern, and contemporary for years to come. Its features include: 

  • Sandblasted watch face with subtly indented markers 
  • Minimal crown, placed at two o’clock for comfort 
  • Discreet NUB logo disguised as a marker at two o’clock 
  • Striking yellow second hand to add visual interest 
  • Custom angled buckle to fasten the Italian calf leather strap

We’ve carefully selected each component of the watch to ensure its quality, including:

  • Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens
  • Gold plated 5 jeweled Swiss Ronda 7 series movement
  • High-grade brushed stainless steel case
  • Screw-down back for water resistance

All NUB watches are made and carefully assembled in Switzerland. The term ‘Swiss-made’ doesn’t just refer to a watch’s place of origin, but a mark of quality and craftsmanship. That’s why we’re proud that NUB watches are truly Swiss-made.

The N1 collection has six different models to choose from. All cases are brushed steel and all straps are Italian calf leather.

Custom made felt pouch with leather fastener & international warranty card.

We're Sean and Jess, a British engineer and a Californian creative designer who have worked tirelessly for the past year to make NUB watches a reality. With help from a world-class Swiss watchmaker, we’re proud to launch our first line of watches: the N1 collection. 

We’ve always had a passion for minimal design and contemporary timepieces. That’s why we wanted to produce a watch with authentic Swiss precision, but without the high cost. We worked directly with our suppliers to get the highest quality components for the best possible prices, and now we’re passing this savings directly on to you.  

All NUB watches are assembled in Switzerland and held to the highest standards. We hope you love your NUB watch as much as we do and can see the care and craftsmanship that have gone into our first collection.   

Thank you for supporting NUB.

   
   

Risks and challenges

We are happy to say that there is very minimal risk with this project—if you order a watch, you will receive one! We are already more than 70% of the way through the process: the prototypes are fully designed and ready to go, the packaging is complete, and the production line is just waiting for our go-ahead.

In manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. We're working very closely with our manufacturer to mitigate that risk and are hoping to deliver before the expected delivery dates!
If you live outside of the UK, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

If there is a problem with your order, please let us know, and we’ll do everything in our power to fix it. We are very confident in our product and are offering a 2-year warranty.

We’ll be posting weekly updates about our progress and timelines.
