About this project

Kickstarter, two years ago we came to you with a simple idea: to create beautifully handcrafted bamboo sunglasses.  With your help, we were able to transform that idea into a global movement.  Now, we plan to take our iconic bamboo aesthetic and social mission to change time itself. Introducing the Panda watch.

What Makes the Panda Watch special:

Eco-friendly Bamboo

We built Panda around bamboo.  We love its environmental benefits and ability to grow in a sustainable manner.  It is more water resistant and more stable than traditional woods such as Oak.  Bamboo is quickly becoming one of the most important plants in the world.  It provides a natural look and aesthetic that make our watches one of a kind.

High-end Craftsmanship

With Panda watches, you can expect the same level of quality that our customers have grown to know with Panda sunglasses. 

Why We Need Your Support & What You Get

We are looking to raise $20,000.  With your support, all funds raised will allow us to create our first run of watches.  We have invested time and funds to develop and prototype the watch.  If you like what Panda stands for or if you like the watches, please support! All watches will be shipped within 45 days of the conclusion of a successfully funded project.  FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!

The Bamboo Case

With our sunglasses, Panda has become known for our handcrafted bamboo cases. With our watches, each one comes with its very own handcrafted bamboo watch box.

The Development Process

We've gone through countless prototypes and made several alterations to the watch design. Here is a photo of the earliest prototype of the watch components. We have come a long way and we have a product we know you will love!

The Panda Story

We started right here on Kickstarter.  You helped start a global movement and there is no other place we would rather want to launch our watches.  Panda stands for a brand that will continually bring high-quality and beautiful products revolving around bamboo.  Our goal is to inspire the world to be a better place.

 What size should I get?

Our watches are unisex.  We recommend the large size for men.  We recommend the small size for women, however if you prefer a larger watch face we recommend going with the large size.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing: We understand the complexities of bringing a high-quality watch to market. Rest assured that we have a reputable team that has a track record of taking a Kickstarter project, manufacturing the product, and delivering it our supporters with great customer service. Our manufacturer is all set for production and we are ready to produce after a successful campaign.

Lead Time: We have a strong relationship with our manufacturer and watches will be ready in 45 days after the conclusion of the campaign.
