About

THE MOST AFFORDABLE AUTOMATIC WATCH ON KICKSTARTER – EVER!

We strive to bring to you the most affordable automatic watch series ever to hit Kickstarter! We’ve learnt many things along our journey to sleek – together with you, we’ve accomplished more than we ever could have imagined!

We are proud to be BACK with the relaunch – and we believe that we are ready to make Carbon Auto, better than ever!

We're currently voting for Stretch goal options - please check the Updates tab for more information! To poll your vote - click here.

Add an extra strap to your pledge, and really see how versatile Carbon Auto really is! Add an additional $35.00 for each strap to your pledge - ie. if you'd like two extra straps, add $70.00. Don't worry you will select the colours/sizes at the end of the campaign.

  • Lume treated for ALL models – which will increase contrast on the hands making it easier to read not only in low light situations, but for all situations.
  • Bundled additional strap for ALL rewards – to match your everyday whenever, wherever!
  • Black date window for ALL CLAS models – yup, sleek just got sleeker!
  • New Colour option – Introducing Midnight White.

Carbon Auto is a watch series is designed with the minimalist in mind - simplicity of modern design. Free of distractions, the focus is truly in its form and the crossover between modern sports styling with classic quality and functionality.

The collection boasts six unique styles that are inspired by both classic and modern styles – it celebrates what’s simply beautiful in its own craft - the engine and the heart of the time piece. 

We've received our first samples and prototypes and are very happy with the outcome. After some minor adjustments and refinements, we believe that it's our best watch yet!

Living up to our brand philosophy, we’ve combined all of our ideas together and came up with the base designs offering an array of colour ways to match our every day!
