We have spent the last 12 months, working on creating and refining our idea of the modern classic timepiece. What started out as the two of us shopping for a new watch turned into us creating our own line of watches.
After chatting amongst our friends and family we were glad to see that everyone has the same problems when searching for a watch.
People are after something that is;
In our experience the current watches will only give us two of these at a time.
We have spent the last year designing this collection and selecting the perfect hardware, timber, metal and manufacturer to build the perfect watch.
Since talking with our friends and family we have gone out and spoken with hundreds of people in workplaces and on the street to design a classic watch that isn’t just to wear with a suit, or to the gym; it can be worn anywhere.
After months of rigorous testing on our watches we are now excited to finally show and offer you the discovery collection, exclusively on kickstarter.
NUVO is more than just a watch collection. We are a lifestyle brand, about creative cultures; We are passionate about music and style and that sits at the core of our brand.
A watch is not just an accessory, it’s an extension of your signature. In fact, style purists insist that a watch is the most important accessory you will own. If there’s one accessory worth investing in, it’s a watch. It’s considered a general rule that if you enjoy wearing a watch, you should have two in your wardrobe – one for sport and one for more formal occasions.
This is where the Discovery Collection enables you to match your watch to your individual style much easier than before.
We understand how limiting it can be having just one watch, we also understand how expensive it can get owning multiple watches for multiple occasions.
Thats why we have designed the destination strap backs.
Each of our watches come with your choice of a black, brown, or caramel coloured leather band which you would typically wear in more formal settings. You also have the option of choosing two Nato straps from our destination packages.
To keep spreading the love, we have decided we want to give away some more straps with your watch so that you have more and more versatility. If you post a link to our kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nuvocollective/the-discovery-collection-natural-wooden-watches) on your Facebook or Twitter account, send us a screen shot to firstname.lastname@example.org and when we collect your preferences at the end of our campaign, we will let you chose an extra strap valued normally at $30+gst. If you have purchased more than one watch, you will receive and extra strap for each watch you have ordered.
For the first stretch goal we have released our Discover Amazon pack. Similarly to the first strap packs it will include one leather, one patterned Nato strap and one plain Nato strap. All of you preferences will be collected in the surveys at the end of our campaign.
We have already had people messaging us on Facebook asking us if these watches are going to be ready for christmas. Unfortunately we are not going to be able to make christmas this year. What we can do however, is send you out a 'gift card' of sorts so that you don't turn up to the relatives empty handed. This means that you can still get your Discovery collection watch as a christmas present this year at the super low kickstarter price.
Risks and challenges
We realize creating and delivering a product is a complicated process and often comes with unexpected challenges. That is why we have been preparing for this for a number of months. We gained tremendous experience over the last 12 months with the launch of our range of wooden wallets.
We have spent several months making sure our supply chain is in check as well as preparing contingency plans.
We have well-established relationships with reliable watch manufacturers, leather workers and a longstanding relationship with the supplier of our NATO straps.
We have refined our supply chain over the course of the last 12 months, enabling us to fulfill large orders in short periods of time. This preparation has been paramount in the development of these watches and this kickstarter.
We are going to keep our backers informed during the production process. We'll do this with regular updates and sharing pictures as often as possible; for example when manufacturing of the
watch cases is completed, during the sanding and polishing of the rosewood faces, the assembly of the packaging and whatever will keep our backers informed and involved.
Although we have done a great deal of preperation to ensure there are no setbacks, we still are prepared and acknowledge that from time to time they can happen. If somewhere along the way we find that there is a setback in production, or that we cannot
make the timeline, we will keep all of our backers informed through our social media channels and email.
In the end, we want to make NUVO a long-lasting brand of affordable mens accessories.
We will do whatever it takes to fulfill our promises and to deliver watches that will exceed our backers expectations
