CURVED GLASS FOR ALL WATCHES IF WE REACH €45.000

ABOUT THE NEW COLLECTION

After a first successful campaign on Kickstarter, we are proud to introduce our new 24h watch collection, with four models - Inflexible, Amiral, Solitaire, Terrible - and one wall clock. Submariners, astronauts or polar explorers used to wear 24h watches: impossible to know time as they were deprieved of daylight.

Today we've rescued their time philosophy by respecting the rhythm of a day and making us aware of the passing time. Time is yours.  

 

À PROPOS DE NOTRE COLLECTION

Après une première campagne sur Kickstarter réussie l'année dernière, nous sommes fiers aujourd’hui de vous présenter notre nouvelle collection de montres 24h, avec quatre modèles - Inflexible, Amiral, Solitaire, Terrible -  et une horloge murale. Les sous-mariniers, les astronautes et les explorateurs polaires étaient des utilisateurs privilégiés de ce type de montres car privés de lumière du jour, impossible pour eux de se repérer dans le temps.

Nous nous sommes appropriés cette philosophie du temps qui respecte le rythme d'une journée et qui nous fait prendre conscience du temps qui s'écoule. Ce temps vous appartient. Time is yours.

HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTION

Aesthetically inspired by Bauhaus and its significant minimalism, designed, prototyped and assembled in France, Vasco is working with a high quality Swiss Heart (Ronda Swiss Made Quartz 515.24H) enhanced by a 316L Stainless Steel case, a scratch-resistant sapphire glass and french bull leather or steel milanese bracelets.

 

FABRICATION HAUT DE GAMME

Inspiré esthétiquement par le Bauhaus et son minimalisme significatif, les montres Vasco sont designées, prototypées et assemblées en France. Tous nos modèles fonctionnent grâce à un cœur Swiss Made de haute qualité (Ronda Swiss Made Quartz 515.24H) mis en valeur par un boitier en acier inoxydable 316L, un verre saphir inrayable et des bracelets en cuir de taureau français ou de très belles mailles milanaises.

 

 

REWARDS

You will be able to choose the model and the bracelet of your choice after the campaign is over. If you wish an additional bracelet, you can simply add 30 € for a leather bracelet or 50 € for a milanese s bracelet to your contribution.

STRECH GOALS

Thanks to you, we reached our three initial goals in record time. We've unlocked the black steel milanese strap at € 20.000, then a brand new watch with gold case ("Optimiste") at € 25.000 and finally, at € 30.000, we were able to introduce the sapphire curved glass for "Terrible". would like to get further in our watch production. We add an ultimate goal at € 45.000: we put curved glasses for any watch.

 

OBJECTIFS À ATTEINDRE

Grâce à vous, nous avons atteint en un temps record nos trois objectifs initiaux à atteindre. Nous avons donc débloqué un bracelet milanais en maille noire à 20.000€ puis un nouveau modèle en or ("Optimiste") à 25.000€ et enfin, le verre bombé en saphir pour la "Terrible". Désormais, un dernier palier à 45.000€ va permettre de proposer le verre bombé sur tous les modèles.

DESIGN & PROCESS

Product designer from Bordeaux, France, I've learned a lot in making watches during last years. Experience gained during our first campaign allowed our team to anticipate, with our suppliers, the design and the making of our watches.

Once the production is finished, we will finish this adventure by assembling all our models in Besançon, France.

 

DESIGN & PROCESS

Designer de produit à Bordeaux, j'ai acquis de nombreuses compétences ces dernières années dans le monde de l'horlogerie. L’expérience de notre première campagne a permis à notre équipe d’anticiper au plus juste, avec nos fournisseurs, la conception et la fabrication de nos montres. 

Une fois la production terminée, c’est avec grand plaisir que nous finirons cette aventure par l’assemblage de tout nos modèles à Besançon, en France.

Risks and challenges

The last year experience is the most important valuable point in our second campaign: 150 backers delivered in 32 countries. They are our best ambassadors.

We have been working hard to anticipate everything for this new collection but in watchmaking, sometimes we can face unexpected problems. But if any issue happens, be sure I will keep you in touch as soon as I got informed.

Our supplier is well known in watch industry and after having worked with his team for years, I know that he can be 100% trusted. The assembled company in Besançon, jewel of french horology, is an old family business. We can adjust everything together and quality check all watches before packing and shipping it to you.
___________________________________________________________________

La campagne de l'année dernière est un atout indéniable pour cette seconde campagne: nous avons livré nos montres à 160 contributeurs dans 32 pays. Ce sont nos meilleurs ambassadeurs.

Nous avons travaillé dur pour anticiper les problèmes rencontrés lors de la première collection, mais dans l'industrie horlogère, nous ne sommes pas à l'abri de constater de nouvelles perturbations. Dans tous les cas, soyez certains que vous serez tenus au courant.

Notre fournisseur est réputé dans le milieu horloger et après avoir travaillé avec son équipe pendant plusieurs années, nous lui faisons confiance à 100%. L'assemblage est effectué à Besançon, fleuron de l'horlogerie française, par une entreprise familiale de renom. Nous pourrons ajuster les derniers détails ensemble et contrôler toutes les montres avant leur départ.
