What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

  

 

Elegance light

Unpretentious, classic beauty, which convinces the Viewer. Airiness, which makes you feel good and gives pleasure every time you look to get the time. Interchangeable bracelets made of leather or nylon give the watches a new touch at any time.

Simply Chique

Every mood, every occasion is right to assign a new color to our daily companion. Real beauty is not dead and motionless, on the contrary, she lives. Interchangeable bracelets for each day. Always appropriate for any occasion, any environment.

Giacomo Cortes Timepieces come with stainless steel cases. Designed for high strength but nevertheless very low weight. That is to make sure that our Timepieces will fit comfortably on small or large wrists. Fitting both men and women easily.

You may believe it or not: we are so confident in the quality of our Timepieces that we decided to give them out with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!

Sevilla is approximately 2,200 years old. The passage of the various civilisations instrumental in its growth has left the city with a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre. In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan departed from Seville for the first circumnavigation of the Earth. Coinciding with the Baroque period of European history, the 17th century in Seville represented the most brilliant flowering of the city's culture.
