Spectre Phantom: A Sportive Automatic Watch
The Phantom is a head-turning timepiece. Sportive, Elegant and made with precision with quality parts at a price beyond imagination.
My name is Gulshan and i am the founder of Spectre Time.
The word Spectre, which means "Ghost" or "Presence" when looked up in the dictionary, came about when i wanted my my watch to have a dark and mysterious feel with a strong presence felt on any wrist. This flows down to the design of the watch as well.
I have always been amazed of timepiece movement especially automatic movements. The miniature size of the clockwork from the gears to the escapement to the turning of the hands was something i found very fascinating. My first Automatic watch was chinese made and i took it apart to study how everything worked and what was in it. When i bought my first swiss made watch, i was totally blown away by the precision and quality of the entire watch. I found out why it was worth paying the premium price for such a watch.
It got me thinking and after a few years i told myself that i want to create my very own watch that had close to swiss standards but at a price not marked up by premium brands and i knew this was possible. I then started working on my watch which i envisioned. Before i knew it, the design was put into production and the response i received was outstanding. Heads were turning and people asked where i bought the watch from and how much it costs. This made me decide to start this campaign to offer people a watch of such stunning designs with a premium quality and feel at a price which was very attractive.
The time taken to produce this protoype has been a long and arduous one. It was difficult to find a manufacturer that had the same amount of passion as me for producing timepieces as I require perfection. Countless changes and tweaks were made just to meet my expectations on quality and precision.
With the CAD designs, sketches and prototype in hand i am ready to start production of the Phantom Series watches. The watches will be produced of different variants ranging from steel bracelets to quality leather bands and so on. Updates will be released regularly as this project is being backed.
All i need now is your support to back me up and make this journey a successful one.
