Thank you for taking the time to check out our page, we truly appreciate your support.

Shore Projects is an established British watch brand that draws inspiration from the natural beauty and fun of our coastline.

We hold a deep passion for high quality, uniquely designed watches.

After several award-winning years producing quartz watches worldwide, we are excited to release a self-powered automatic range.

We believe that people should be able to purchase quality products at a price that truly represents what they pay for.

That’s why we’ve cut out the usual retail markup and we’re offering these watches directly to you. The typical price of a watch with an equivalent movement would be £500 and above, and our watches are priced at over 35% less.

The Limited Edition Project 4 Collection was designed in our UK workshop and created with the utmost technical precision throughout. There will only be 200 watches made in each style for this campaign.

In the style of the great dive watches of the 1960's, yet with a modern twist, these self-powered timepieces come in 4 unique designs:

Using precision manufacturing processes and a strong modern day build quality, this allows the watches to withstand the demands of everyday living. 

They are made with stainless steel cases and have crystal sapphire glass. They are also waterproofed and designed for swimming in the sea.

The interchangeable strap mechanisms make it easy to swap straps on a daily basis, so the look of each watch can change in a few seconds.

You can accompany your watch with any of the following straps:


We have worked in collaboration with the movement specialist Miyota to incorporate their 9015 model. These contain 24 jewels, a power reserve of 42 hours and feature Miyota's patented Parashock Technology which ensures the movement is protected if the watch is dropped.

Switching to the aesthetic the Shore Projects branded, gold contrasting semi-lunar rotor plate can be seen through the crystal sapphire reverse casing. 

Each watch will have signature Shore Projects engravings on the rotor blade and steel rim at the back of the watch:

Outer Casing: Silver plated, marine grade 316L stainless steel
Movement: The Miyota 9015 Automatic (Self-Powered, Mechanically Driven). Featuring: 24 Jewels, Parashock Technology, 42 hr Power Reserve
Glass: Scratch Resistant Crystal Sapphire
Waterproof: The Project 4s are waterproof to 10atms which means they are designed for swimming and skin diving
Dial Diameter: 39mm
Hands: Luminous minute hands, with a contrasting second hand featuring the Shore Projects logo
Interchangeable Strap Ability: Match this watch face with any Shore Projects strap of your choice

Your watch and strap will arrive in our signature shoreline packaging, which includes a tote bag and poster.

The first official Shore Projects t-shirt ever made.

Durable yet lightweight. 100% Cotton. Made in the UK.

Here's how it works:

Kickstarter allows for creative projects to be funded by Backers, who pledge money for projects that they are interested in. This pledge would grant them a Reward - you can see the Rewards listed at the top right of this page, or if on mobile: on the 'Rewards' tab near the top. 

If the project is funded by the time the campaign finishes, Backers would then receive their Reward at the estimated delivery date.

If the project is not fully funded then no-one is charged a thing.

We will regularly keep Backers updated of our production process along the way.

Our Automatic range comes with a 2-year manufacturers warranty from the date of purchase. We will repair any faulty product that is returned to us within the warranty period.

The Warranty does not cover:  

  • Normal wear and tear and ageing (e.g. scratched crystal; alteration of the colour and texture of the straps) 
  • Any damage on any part of the watch resulting from carelessness, abnormal/abusive use, lack of care, negligence, accidents (knocks, dents, crushing, broken crystal etc.) 
  • If the watch was repaired/serviced by non-authorised persons (e.g. for movement/strap replacement)

Please visit www.shoreprojects.com for further information.

Risks and challenges

Here at Shore Projects we have always been dedicated to creating high quality products at affordable prices for the world to enjoy.

We have tried and tested our production and distribution method for over 5 years, refining our processes and ensuring they are as reliable as possible. Using this experience we are confident in the shipping timeline we have put in place.

We set out to ensure that we bring out our first Automatic with a bang.

Project 4 has been 2 years in the making; we've gone through many prototypes, tweaking the colours and designs to make this product just how it is meant to be. The manufacturer has the completed prototypes at the ready for mass production.

It is extremely important to us that we are transparent about our project. Whether it is good or even bad news, we will let backers know how the project is going every step of the way and provide the best customer service they deserve.

Thanks so much for the support,

The Shore Projects Team
