About this project

Unit 7 was created as a collaboration between a few individuals (7 to be exact). We are a combination of Collectors, Designers, Watch Engineers, Supply Chain/Manufacturing Experts and Brand Operators. With a combined knowledge of over 20 years in the watch industry. We have combined forces to bring you a new brand; The Unit 7. To celebrate our launch and our first model, we are offering our first model at an unbelievable price.

There is a unlimited supply of Kickstarter offerings. Some turn out to be a gamble, you just never know what you will get. At Unit 7, we have done it before, we know the industry. Our manufacturing partners are tried and tested so you are assured what you see is what you get. 

The Movement

The heart of the Carbon features a Miyota Cal.8215 movement made by Citizen in Japan. This particular movement has proven itself time and time again to be a highly accurate and reliable work horse.

Case 

The Unit 7 Diver is made of full Stainless Steel. We have spent a lot of time perfecting the design and quality. We have spent our time in getting every single detail right. 

 

 Dial and Crystal

The Unit 7 features a scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal. On the underside of the Crystal is a anti-reflective coating. The Dial was designed to be simple, clear and legit able under all situations (even in the Dark!). 

*We use Super-LumiNova C3 Lume for extra low light visibility  

Strap

The Unit 7 will ship with a high-quality ventilated rubber strap.

Where are we now  

We have spent close to a year designing and developing the new range of Unit 7 Divers. After several prototypes and revisions, we can now say we are very happy with how the Unit 7 watches turned out. We have finalized all the designs, the engineering and prototyping has been completed. Our Manufacturing partners and suppliers lined up and are on standby. We have completed all the sampling with our own funds, now we need your help to purchase all the raw materials and to help with the high manufacturing costs.

Risks and challenges

This is not our first watch to bring to market. We have already done all the engineering and prototyping. With a strong supplier base in place, we are ready for production.

No matter how much you plan, delays are inevitable and will happen. Though our experience launching watches to market we understand that communication is key and we will keep you informed of latest updates.
