About

 

 

 For a year, our team have been researching premium components that would compliment a thin minimalistic styled time piece. We've teamed up with renowned world leading manufacturers to produce the thinnest luxury watches, without the luxury price mark up.

Enjoy timeless luxury without the industry mark up with the Sanctuary Ultra Thin Minimalist Watches. Every facet of these timepieces is rich in style with premium materials. The Sanctuary collection comes in three models: Classic Millennium, Grandeur, and Allure. Each features a durable yet beautiful stainless steel case complete with sapphire crystal. Inside is a precise Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The Classic Millennium has indices for each hour and minute while the other two models only have the hours marked. In addition, the latter models also have no seconds hand to achieve a highly minimalistic aesthetic. Each of the models has minimal branding with the name in gold across the top and an elegant “S” and 6 o’clock. Extending from the watch is a premium Italian leather strap in your choice of grey, black, brown, or white.

To make prices fair, we cut out the middle man, distributors and retail stores that would inflate the prices, making them ridiculously expensive. In addition, we also reduced our profit margin so that everyone can find their piece of Sanctuary with ease. 



You won't find many thin simplistic design watches out there with such high quality components. So, as a team Sanctuary decided to design them! We wanted a time piece that anyone could wear anytime, anywhere. For travelling or even heading to work, Sanctuary would have you covered! 

Also we are so confident in the quality we are also giving... 

 

Wear our exclusive Italian leather. The perfect straps and experience highest quality. We use naturally tanned leathers from the world's best Italian tanneries. The leather is then handcrafted to be durable and stylish and is the most comfortable strap for all.

 Strap colour are chosen after campaign ends on survey page. 

 

 

 DESIGN BLUE PRINT & SPECIFICATIONS:
Sanctuary is a unique designed minimal time piece that is equipped with high quality components such as sapphire crystal glass, Swiss Ronda movement, Italian leather straps and a flawless stainless steel casing all in a ultra-thin case design. What more can you ask for? Water resistant? Done! It's also water resistant up to 5ATM! 


To be unique we wanted to pull away from the typical design and make our minimalistic time piece different! A part from the exclusive high quality materials, Sanctuary's signature difference is seen in the indicators. Our hour indicators are our signature give-away and are purposely shaped as a diamond on each hour indicator. The elegant unique S logo at the IV (6th) hour is also a symbolic signature which could be represented as a multi-purpose design symbol. The unique beautiful 'S' stands for Sanctuary or you could view it as simply the Sixth hour. Whatever you see it as, it's our way of expressing our own uniqueness in the design.

 A part from that very special S, we also provide a unique Certificate Of Authenticity to verify that your watch are unique and Authentic from Sanctuary. 

 

 Backers can now personally customise the back of their watches by being able to put a special date, name or a special quote for their own personal meaning. Backers who are SUPER EARLY BIRDS can also pledge to get a LIMITED EDITION numbered 1-100 seen as: Limited Edition #1. The order of Limited Numbers are provided by first in first serve. 

Yes you can both get Limited Edition and a personalised engraving on the watch! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Inspired by the famous Melbourne White Night that takes place once every year in the heart of Melbourne. The Grandeur's black body and gold indicators represents the festive night and gold glowing surroundings.

 

 

 

 

 Inspired by the sunrise of Switzerland's Zermatt mountain, illustrating a orangey golden sunny mountain with visible white snow laying on its surface. Our rose gold theme on this amazing design depicts the sun rising and the exquisite white watch face illustrates the exquisite moutain snow.

 

 

 

 

Inspired by Melbourne's finest Eureka Sky Deck. A tower to view it all - the great city of Melbourne. Famous for its golden top tower; the Eureka Sky Deck is a perfect attraction to view Melbourne in its entity. The Classical Millennial is presented by its luxurious Golden indicators and sets the bar for minimalistic classic time pieces. 

 

 


Our minimal design embodies authentic Italian leather, a thin 6mm thickness casing and a crystal clear sapphire glass. Super water resistant up to a great 5ATM! A brilliant class for its own beauty. A time piece that is classy and luxurious, finished off with the famous Sanctuary S logo. The most accurate ticking time piece intertwined with the high performance Swiss movement. A true eye catcher that encapsulate the timeless and elegant characteristic of any luxury item. Our ultra-slim casing technology makes this the perfect watch for any watch lover.

Our partners have had years of experience in this industry and although projects can have unforeseen issues we have already anticipated many potential risks; we are confident that we will make it until the end to ship all your order off promptly and on time. We have built a solid production & delivery team for this project.

All of our collaborators and partners have had many years in the industry and have build world famous watches. We therefore offer you our promise and confidence that everything is of the highest quality materials. We have spent many months preparing for this project and after receiving our sample we are excited for our backers to receive theirs!

We have dependable sources and suppliers and do not plan to delay shipping once funded. However, if there are any delays we will always keep our backers updated both during and after the campaign. Communication is always key.

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you, the Kickstarter community!
