If we hit $13,000 AUD, all backers who pledged for a Discovery Timepiece will receive an extra strap of either Caramel Brown leather strap or the Black leather strap of your choice! 

The Beginning of Peter Daniel

Through the immense and astounding success of our first watch collection, the Genesis, we are beyond excited to invite you through the progression of Peter Daniel timepieces with the Discovery. 

The Genesis is a minimalist's dream, a single crowned rose gold casing matched with flat sapphire crystal and a small collection of interchangeable straps. Hour and minute hands on the facade provide the simple and clean look, but numerous feedback and requests to add more functionality such as second hand and date calendar marked the inception of the Discovery collection. 

Determined to create a functional yet timeless piece, we've challenged ourselves to unite the best of both worlds to design the Discovery Lifestyle collection.

The Dial

Retaining the roman numerals is a crucial element in keeping the Peter Daniel's Genesis legacy, a motif to signify the progression of time from the beginnings of the brand.

The date, numbers and logo are positioned to display a smart and casual appearance for the wearer. One look is all you require with the Discovery to remind yourself when you are in life. Each piece has been designed to be functional as a watch and stylish as an accessory. 

The Hands

We've wanted wearers to catch the time easily and give off a distinctive look on display. The red and blue hands in contrast with the white and black facades respectively, and leather straps deliver the combination of just that in one piece. 

The Case

Inspired by the vintage feel of classic cars, the brushed finish 304 Stainless Steel case measures 40mm in diameter and 9mm in height for a full and weighted tactile fit. The detail extends to the engraving of the PD logo on the crown of the piece. The stylish yet rugged and durable casing is paired with a subtly domed mineral glass crystal to protect the facade. The Mineral glass crystal has been heat treated to ensure no scratches will be inflicted during your time with the Discovery, whilst the curvature of the domed crystal resists higher pressure of stress. 

All our Discovery timepieces are rated at 5ATM water-resistance, simply meaning resistant to 50m underwater. The Discovery can be taken out to the beach and swimming pools with peace of mind knowing it is protected for every-day wet conditions!

The Lifestyle range features brushed steel finish, whilst the Founders' Edition has polished titanium colour finish. 

The Straps

Genuine Italian leather held by the engraved pd clasp finish off the full body of the Discovery timepiece. The firm yet soft leather straps hug the skin comfortably all day long. Caramel Brown & Black strap options with quick release spring bars provide versatility without the hassle of using complicated watch tools. 

The Movement

As the engine of any timepiece, the movement is arguably the most important part of a watch. The precision and reliability of Seiko is well established. We've selected the Seiko VD51 Chronograph movement to ensure the engine of the Discovery is long-lasting and as accurate as ever. 

The Founders' Edition

After countless designs, we at Peter Daniel believe we have created the perfect combination of colour scheme and casing type to bring you the Founders' Edition. Matching the Pthalo Blue leather strap with white contrast stitching, polished titanium colour finished case with the classic black facade, the Founders' Edition is the subtle statement piece for the modern gentleman. 

Designed to complement, not distract, this edition is limited to 20 pieces, available exclusively on this campaign. 

This stage in Peter Daniel is a big milestone for us, a milestone in our pursuit of our values of creating simplicity and making a statement. This limited timepiece serves as more than just a reminder, but a memento of how far we've come as a brand. 

The Founders' Edition will be limited to 20 pieces.

The Leather Travel Case

We at Peter Daniel believe going the extra mile matters just as much as immaculate attention to detail. This is why in place of the average cardboard box, we have decided to include a genuine leather travel case with each Discovery purchased.
