Websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo are fast becoming a quick way to setup a new watch brand. There’s already been a few successfull brands start through them, so there’s little wonder why watch brands keep popping up. Let’s take a look at the few stand-out brands on there who need your support!
1. The Calligraph Duneshore
The Calligraph Duneshore from Visitor Watch Co has created a real stir – and there’s no guessing as to why. It’s stunning, and very unique. It’s already fully funded but you can still pledge to get some dosh off the full RRP once the campaign ends. The blue slate dial is my favourite, and I’ll be reviewing one very soon – so keep your eyes peeled.
2. The Brigadier
Another great looking watch, this time by Mercer Watch Co. You can still pledge to get a Brigadier for $300, $100 off RRP. It has all the specs you’d expect: sapphire front and back crystals, Miyota 9015 hi-beat movement, and a design that’s pretty darn classy. I really like the case shape – it reminds me of the Bremont trip-tick case.
3. Peren Chronograph
You can grab a Peren chrono by pledging $190 CAD. Not a bad price for a nice designed watch with a Swiss Made quartz chrono movement.
4. HDD Watch
I reviewed the HDD Watch here. For someone who likes the style, it’s a great watch offering surprising value for money. You can pledge one now for just €100!
And finally… one to keep an eye out for
Erroyl are going to be starting their Kickstarter campaign on December 8th, for their brand new model the Heritage. Just looking at the pictures, I’m pretty sure this will be a real winner. And then there’s the price – you will be able to pledge one for only $300 AUD. For that, you get front and back sapphire crystal, hi-beat Miyota 9015 movement, 2 year warrantee, and a beauty of a watch (it’s 40mm wide too, a perfect size) with a nice concentric circular pattern and applied hour markers. I’ll be getting one in to review next year, and I’m pretty excited about that.
