Please note that, shipping fees of 15$, is only applied to buyers outside of France. Thank you ! 

In any case the watch will be produced !

VEA has experience with industrialization. Every contributor will have their Buddy !!


March 8th : Dear all, we are happy to announce that the campaign will be one more month.
However, this will have no impact on June / summer shipping for the Vea Buddy.  

Here is the explanation: We’ve had many problems with Paypal Europe (who seems to don't know anything about crownfunding as they were refusing payments and kept on blocking our account for now 4 weeks) so we missed many contributions. For the best interest of Indiegogo (thanks guys for your help on the case), VEA Digital and the contributors, the campaign will go on until April, 30th. 
Many thanks !
