About

PRiSM strikes again!

As you know, our first campaign did not reach its goal in the allotted time. The main difficulty was our high financial goal due to a minimum production quantity of 500 watches.

Today we come back stronger, with a financial goal revised downward and some small changes:

  •  The funding target has been lowered from CHF 120'000 to CHF 48'000, which we have already achieved (and even exceeded) as our previous campaign reached 55'621 CHF
  • As a result, production has been reduced from 500 to 250 watches. Our watches will be even more exclusive due to their limited series and the fact that each of them is numbered individually
  • A lowered quantity produced inevitably leads to a slight increase in costs. In doing so, we looked for a way to justify this small price increase, so we decided that each of our contributors would be offered an additional watch strap with his PRiSM watch. These straps will be equipped with quick release spring bars to go from the main bracelet to secondary in no time - two styles for the price of one!

How it all started

As it is often the case, it all started around a few drinks and two long-time friends discussing their common passion: the world of horology.

The rest of the evening remains a little unclear but what stuck was the motivation to launch our own brand. It was after a contribution to a watchmaking project on a crowdfunding platform that the idea sprang up in our minds.

We then asked ourselves: why not us, too?

We are fortunate enough to live in a time where launching entrepreneurial projects does not require as much financial investment as it did before, a time where we have a wide array of options and solutions to get where we want to be.

The idea

We grew up in the country of watchmaking. Traditional values and know-how are embedded in us. Ambitious, very influenced by urban trends, we began to draw the sketches of a watch that would define us.

Being Swiss, there was no room for error on the quality. Passionate about the watchmaking domain, our first step was to surround ourselves with the most qualified people in the field. We had the chance to come across open professionals that believed in our project and today, these are people that we call friends.

First sketches & 3D printing

A recognizable watch

The central element of our watch - the crown - identifiable at a glance, represents our brand and most importantly our philosophy.

It reflects the different facets of our personalities.

Our watch is provocative but classy, sporty but dressed, affordable but of high quality and labeled "Swiss Made".

​The birth

It is based on all these reflections and contradictions that PRiSM was born. PRiSM is the coexistence, the osmosis, the different facets of your personality. Different behavior depending on your mood, your environment and the people around you. PRiSM is you, me, us. Like the facets of a prism, your reflections are ever-evolving. Appearances can take different hues, different textures, different colors.

We revisit watchmaking as a prism redefined light.

Super-LumiNova®

Dial

Our dial is all in relief and geometrical shapes representing a dodecagon giving it an unpredictable appearance depending on the light. It also displays Super-LumiNova® engraved numbers visible during night time.

Our hour and minute hands are covered with phosphorescent pigments in the center and polished on the outside. Our second's hand is mat and colorful. The color of the second's hand determines the color of the Super-LumiNova® on the rest of the watch. Our dial also exhibits a date window at 3 o’clock.

Everything is protected by an elegant finely-worked stainless steel case and two anti-reflective sapphire glasses; one on the front and one the back giving a beautiful view on the automatic movement.

Crown

The central element of our watch - the iconic crown - identifiable right away by its unique shape, represents our brand and most importantly our philosophy.

It reflects the different facets of our personalities.

Serial number engraving

Every PRiSM watch is engraved with a serial number (limited to 250 pieces for the fundraising campaign) and labeled "Swiss Made”.

Movement specifications

We wanted it automatic and not quartz because it is, from our point of view, a sign of quality. We are also fascinated by the oscillating movements of this beating heart, of those inert pieces that once assembled come to life.

Leather straps

Our 22 mm genuine leather straps are available in black and brown color which both come with a stainless steel engraved buckle matching the crown.

Packaging

Your PRiSM watch will arrive in a beautiful synthetic leather pouch with an embossed logo also usable as a travel case during your trips or anything that makes you happy. From our personal experience, we know that beautiful watch boxes such as wooden one are not practical at all. It is nice to get one but, after you unwrap your watch, it takes up lot of space so we aimed for practicality with this multifunctional pouch.

Stretch goal

If we reach this goal, every watch backer gets a free gift.

Swiss Made

PRiSM Watches defines itself as a dynamic, innovative and young brand that maintains the traditions and values of Swiss watches. The "Swiss Made" labeling of our watches represents a significant pride for us because we are attached to our country and its values. Around the world, "Swiss Made" is linked to a clear promise of service, quality, and know-how. But Switzerland is also a country that combines creativity and reliable customer service.

These values are also ours.

Every PRiSM watch embodies a Swiss movement and is assembled and controlled in Switzerland.

We are well surrounded by professionals who no longer need to prove themselves in the field of watchmaking. This, along with our personal experiences in the industry will help us build the future of a great brand.

Shipping and taxes

Shipping worldwide, PRiSM Watches participates in 30 CHF on every order, meaning that most European countries get free shipping. In short, you will only pay if the shipping costs excess 30 CHF. Customs duties and taxes are the buyer’s responsibility upon delivery. 

Tested

Our prototypes have been rigorously tested in laboratory (sealing, scratches on sapphire glasses, water resistance, etc.) and on the wrist by ourselves and our friends for over a year. Minor modifications will be made during production such as the engraved serial number that will pass from 500 to 250. We ensure that product quality is as perfect as any swiss luxury watch brand should be.

Are you worried about the sharpness of the crown?

Ourselves and our friends tested the watches on our wrists during more than a year and we can confidently assure you that you will not feel the crown scratching your skin. We performed multiple trials to find the perfect fit and figured out that with a 45° angle the crown hugs perfectly the form of your wrist and hand. 

Warranty

The warranty is valid for two (2) years upon reception of the watch and covers any functional defects that may result from faulty manufacturing. PRiSM will repair your watch free of charge. Every PRiSM watch comes with a warranty card matching the serial number of the watch.

Risks and challenges

The main idea of this Kickstarter is to respond to our first production and to set forth our brand! Be sure that we set this objective at the rock-bottom and our margin constitute almost nothing behind! When the objective is reached, be certain that you will hear about us and be happy with your investment!
For the rest, it was a challenging three and a half years journey but we were lucky enough to surround ourselves with very friendly professionals who gave us advice and support during our whole project development.
