About this project
Throne started with a simple idea, to give new life to old watches by pairing them with beautiful handmade leather straps. After nearly two years building a business based around sourcing reclaimed watches and handmade straps, we decided it was time to design our own watch. That's where you come in. We need your help to fund our first production run of Throne Watch faces and straps.

Parts are sourced from all over the world and each watch is proudly assembled in America by our friends from Smith and Bradley in Sidney, Illinois. Each face will be engraved with a unique number, so act now to get one of the original batch!
The straps we are offering as part of our Kickstarter project are 100% American made. We use premium materials to create a beautiful watch strap that gets better with age and will last for years.
As part of this Kickstarter project we have four different straps to choose from:
Inspired by classic mid-century watches like Patek Philippe, Omega and Rolex, we set out to create a modern watch with a timeless feel.
Risks and challenges
As with all product design projects the greatest risk is in manufacturing. There are countless variables to consider and wrenches that are thrown in along with way. We are far enough along in the process, however, that these risks are relatively low. We have samples in hand, and manufacturers on standby. While it is important to know this product is not finished, understand that it is very far along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
