Timepieces and automobiles have long shared a deep connection. Our third watch collection, the GT, is inspired by this special association. The GT’s aesthetics take after the archetypal grand-tourer: the perfect car for a cross-country drive in speed, style and comfort.
Reverie has been featured by the following websites:
“The guilloché really takes this piece up a notch and lets it stand out from the smorgasbord of cookie-cutter watch producers...it is always great to see something original that keeps its distance from the current trends.” – Richard Cantley (A Blog To Watch)
“No matter how I turn this watch, everywhere I find something to like, the dial is well balanced and that guilloché is hypnotizing, the back, the straps, every little detail of the watch express the passion and energy put into this watch by Samuel and his team." – Adam Sofineti (Watchpaper)
“Samuel checked all my boxes effortlessly with his debut piece and I am anxiously awaiting his next batch of timeless creations.” – Daniel Perianu (BMW Blog)
“It looks so much better in the metal. I can’t stop looking at the face! The way the light catches it is amazing.” – Howard M. (owner of the Reverie Sea-Spirit, reference no. 24 of 125)
“Beautiful watch, amazing guilloché, excellent presentation, 4 days including the weekend to arrive in Australia from Singapore, an absolutely fantastic experience even before taking into account the exceptional value of this watch.” – Ross P. (owner of the Reverie Sea-Spirit, reference no. 85 of 125)
“I have to say that the watch details are splendidly done. Congrats to Samuel for designing and building a very nice watch which I’m sure I’ll have for years.” – Richard W. (owner of the Reverie Classic, reference no. 80 of 250)
- Excellent craftsmanship with quality materials
We set high standards. We use robust Japanese movements, sapphire crystals, and leather straps sourced from Italy. Each part is carefully assembled and inspected before delivery to you.
We treasure exclusivity. Our watches are produced in small batches and each watch is individually numbered. Our designs will never be reproduced once sold out.
- Fair prices
We sell directly to you online. Bypassing third party retailers enables us to share cost-savings with you. Prices are even lower now in exchange for your early support.
We’ve created the GT in 3 colorways: (I) ‘Mariana Blue’ GT, (II) ‘Panda’ GT, and (III) ‘Rose Gold’ GT. Three variants, three different characters - there’s truly a GT for everyone.
(I) ‘Mariana Blue’ GT
To those who missed out on the blue-dialed version of our Sea-Spirit collection, the ‘Mariana Blue’ GT is the watch for you. The all new dial has beautiful light-play ranging from navy to indigo hues (check out the video further below to see this light-play in action!).
(II) ‘Panda’ GT
Like many inventions in the world of watches, the iconic 'Panda' concept originates from the sixties and seventies. The ‘Panda’ colourway comes with a silvery white dial with jet black sub-dials, offering increased legibility.
(III) ‘Rose Gold’ GT
The ‘Rose Gold’ GT is the dressiest watch of the trio. The warm rose-gold plated case conveys opulence and elegance. The metallic white dial coupled with the rose-gold plated markers and hands give the watch an aura of sophistication.
The GT’s 40mm case is precision-crafted out of surgical grade 316L stainless steel using a CNC machine. Each individual case is then carefully hand-finished to create both satin-brushed and polished surfaces. The contrasting case finishing gives the GT added wrist-presence and character.
The lugs of the watch are modelled after the tear-drop shaped fenders of the beautiful Bugatti Type 57S, and the case’s dramatic stepped-bezel is inspired by the exuberant Art Deco design language of the 1920s.
The GT’s engine is a Seiko VK64 mecha-quartz movement imported from Japan. A mecha-quartz movement is a hybrid movement combining the accuracy of a quartz watch with the beauty in motion of traditional mechanical chronographs. This means that the GT’s seconds hand moves in a sweeping motion similar to a mechanical watch (instead of ticking one second at a time) and has an instant fly-back function when the chronograph is reset.
The VK64 movement truly offers the best of both worlds: Japanese time-keeping accuracy and elegant mechanical action. It also has other benefits compared to mechanical chronographs, such as better accuracy, a slimmer profile, lower cost, and lesser weight.
True to the GT’s driving roots, the chronograph function allows you to time your drives. The GT’s tachymeter scale also lets you measure your speed over a fixed distance. It is the perfect accompaniment for your next road-trip.
The Guilloché Dial
The GT comes with our signature guilloché dial, which is evocative of a car’s radiator grille. Much like the guilloché work on our past collections, the GT’s dial transforms under different lighting conditions. You’ll have to see it in person to truly appreciate the way it shines with a flick of your wrist. Take a closer look yourself below:
Bi-Color Super-LumiNova Lume
The GT’s hands and hour markers are filled with Super-LumiNova luminous material. Super-LumiNova is the benchmark luminous material and is used in many Swiss watches at much higher prices. The GT goes one step further by using different colored lumes for added visibility in the dark: the hands take on a blue glow and the hour markers take on a green glow.
Sapphire Crystal & Anti-Reflective Coating
The GT comes with a sapphire crystal. Sapphire is twice as hard as normal glass and nearly as hard as diamond, making the crystal highly scratch-resistant. A layer of anti-reflective coating is also applied on the sapphire crystal, ensuring that you can tell the time even in the most glaring of conditions.
Luxurious Italian Leather Straps
Each GT comes with 2 supple leather straps made of genuine leather sourced from Italy. The default strap is a perforated racing-inspired deployant-buckle strap, and the second strap is a classic pebble-grain textured tang buckle strap. Both straps have our convenient strap-change design function for effortless strap-changing (no tools required!) and water-resistant lining on their undersides to maximize life span.
The straps measure 20mm at the lugs and taper down to 18mm at the buckle – offering enough stability to support the watch case and added comfort on the wrist given the slimmer strap profile.
In terms of colours, the ‘Mariana Blue’ GT comes with a royal navy perforated strap and a dark brown pebble-grained strap, the ‘Panda’ GT comes with a sharkskin grey perforated strap and a black pebble-grained strap, whereas the ‘Rose Gold’ GT comes with a dark brown perforated strap and a camel pebble-grained strap.
5ATM Water Resistance
The GT is water resistant to 5 Atmospheres (5ATM), meaning it can withstand the washing of your hands and the rain.
Only 175 pieces of each GT colorway will be available worldwide. Each and every watch will have its own unique reference number engraved on the embossed medallion case-back. We’ve created exclusivity without inflated prices.
Leather-Bound Travel Case
Each GT comes with a travel case wrapped in navy blue leather with a black cloth lining on the inside of the case. The travel case can store a watch and an extra strap: all your wrist needs for a weekend getaway.
The timeline for the GT project is as follows:
- Kickstarter Campaign Flag Off : 22 November 2017
- Kickstarter Campaign Finish Line : 26 December 2017
- Production & Quality Control Complete : 20 January 2018
- Packaging & Shipping Complete : 29 January 2018
As you can tell, the wait for the GT is shorter than what other watch campaigns usually offer. We have achieved this by starting the production in advance and only launching our campaign towards the tail-end of the manufacturing period. We aim to have all our watches shipped out as soon as possible and in any event, no later than end January 2018.
Aftersales support is important to us. As such, we provide all backers with the following:
- Guaranteed Delivery - As production of the GT is already on-going, we can guarantee that you will receive your timepiece regardless of how much funding this campaign raises.
- Free Worldwide Shipping - We offer free-shipping to all countries our trusted courier (DHL Express) ships to.
- 1 Year Repair Warranty - We provide an international repair warranty for all Reverie timepieces, which is valid for a year upon delivery of the watch.
Hello! My name is Samuel and I founded Reverie in early 2015. The 'Reverie' name stems from my dream of starting a watch company which make beautiful timepieces that stand the test of time, both practically and aesthetically. Initially, this was but a fanciful musing. Yet, I knew I would have regretted not working on this dream had I left it at that. Since then, Reverie has gone on to release two successful collections, both of which are beautiful (in my biased opinion!) and have been well-received by the press and our customers. I trust that you will delight in our watches as much as I do.
Feel free to contact us here or at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions. We can also be found at www.reveriewatches.com and on the following social media platforms:
Thanks for your time - we look forward to your support!
Risks and challenges
As with manufacturing anything, potential delays may arise during production. To counter this, we work with experienced suppliers, many of whom have been in business for more than a decade, as well as built in a time-buffer in our production schedule. We also have experience with successful order fulfilment as seen by our previous crowdfunding campaign for the Reverie Classic. Despite raising 250% of our target, we were able to deliver the watches ahead of schedule.
Further, some countries are known for being slow with customs. Apart from this small group of countries, customs delays are rare in our experience. We maintain a 100% successful delivery record thanks to the good work of our friends at DHL.
As always, we'll update our backers frequently about our progress and let you know in the unlikely event we encounter any blips along the way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
