Merlin 296

With your help, we can bring this unique, three-year battery, Swiss Concept watch to production. It was designed to combine great looks with a Swiss-engineered mechanism at an affordable price. Funders can choose between 3 different straps, and each watch will be delivered in a nice military-style kraft box and will be covered by a 24 months Limited Warranty.

The development process spans over 12 months, and we chose to work through the first 10 months before launching the crowdfunding, which only leaves 2 months before planned mass production. ;xNLx;;xNLx;We have already finalised the design, approved blueprints submitted by suppliers and developed production moulds. Leaning on the experience of our last RocketHub project, we planned ahead of time to avoid any unexpected delays, so we are confident that we will meet the deadline.;xNLx;If the funding is successful, we will launch mass production on the 1st or April 2015, and organise to start shipping items to funders by the 15th of April.
