Update: 

We have added a New Reward #3 - Super Early Bird Double Backers as some backers had issues pledging for 2 pieces at the Super Early Bird price. This is limited to only 30 pledges, so grab yours before they run out!

Veloce

Trifoglio Italia is pleased to introduce our newest timepiece, Veloce to the Kickstarter community. “Veloce” (fast, speedy in Italian) has been a deeply personal and long-anticipated project for Alessandro Baldieri, Creative Designer & Founder of Trifoglio Italia. Born in post-war Italy to a keen car enthusiast, he had himself spent countless summer days as a young boy, watching his father and his friends enjoying their beloved super cars.

In his own words, “Those priceless memories cannot be bought”, but designing the beautiful speed indicators into the watch Veloce is Alessandro's reinterpretation of those unforgettable years, and keeping those moments close by wearing them on the wrist. 

 And this is Veloce -

 ORDER EXTRA STRAP(S)

Simply add the value of the extra strap to the total pledge amount. You will get to indicate choice with survey at the end of campaign.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  

If you have been following our updates and dialogue with a couple of backers, and just so you know we have been listening to you, we have good news for you - 

(1) We were expecting a new shipment of Milanese mesh straps and we have just told our supplier to change them to the quick release type, so if you choose to have your Veloce watch with the mesh strap, it WILL have the quick release. 

(2) The racing straps will NOT have quick release as the production is almost ready, and we are not able to change them in time. However, ... 

(3) We were about to put in an order with our strap manufacturer for some new leather straps which are of a different design from the racing straps. We were going to make them with the traditional springbars but taking your wishes into consideration, we will now make them all with the quick release! They will be offered as one of the choices of straps to go with your Veloce. You only need to indicate your choice in the survey which we will be sending out after the campaign is over. Images of the sample straps given to us by the factory as follows: 

More choices of Straps Added

Note that this strap will come in 3 colour options: Black, Dark Brown and Tan. The buckle as seen on the black strap will be the buckle we are using. The back for all the straps of this design will be lined in red leather:

They have a nice vintage look to them so they match the Veloce perfectly!

Every backer will get a piece of lens cleaning cloth and a springbar tool

However, project Veloce holds special sentiments for Alessandro and he believes that he is not alone with them. Hence, he is inspired to reach out to a greater community within Kickstarter and invites you to be one of the first to have this latest model.

No middlemen fees

Furthermore, the delivery schedule is earlier than other Kickstarter projects because we have already initiated production of the watches before this campaign started. (This is how confident and enthusiastic we are!) This means that you can expect to receive the watches within a short one or two months after this campaign ends. 

Price & Schedule 

Retail priced at US$435, we are offering awesome discounts of 62% (net US$165) for the 1st 100 pieces and 55% (net US$195) thereafter on Kickstarter! We also offer worldwide registered shipping for US$15. Delivery is expected by December 2018, which makes it a perfect upcoming Christmas gift as well!

Risks and challenges

Trifoglio Italia prides ourselves as an already established well-loved brand in the watch-making industry and we plan to continue doing what we are passionate in. (Check out our website www.trifoglioitalia.com for other existing watch models)

The challenge that we pose to ourselves, is to continue to produce for our watch-lovers, singularly beautiful and well-designed watches at exceptional quality and at affordable prices. We have undertaken the decision to be ahead of the Veloce retail by kick-starting its production, as we are confident of our brand and determined with this new project. We invite you to be on-board with us through this new journey of "Veloce".
