Formed as a vision of a timepiece that is more than simply a watch, but a true MECHANICAL WORK OF ART (no battery, works entirely based off the movement of your wrist.)


 

BY POPULAR DEMAND: Woman’s Passages Beauté

As many women were asking about a woman’s version of the timepiece, including Bill’s wife and daughter, by popular demand we are proud to introduce the Woman’s Passages Beauté:


The “Passages” Limited Edition watch was created by William Shatner in collaboration with myself, Ilan Srulovicz, the founder of Egard Watch Company.

A combination of both of our visions as to what a timepiece should be.

GET A SNEAK PEAK AT BILL'S FIRST REACTION TO SEEING THE PROTOTYPE!

Before we get too far, we would like thank you and the community of fans for allowing us to do something unprecedented in the watch industry.

By bringing this project to IndieGoGo and directly to you, we can cut out distributors and retailers, as well as additional marketing expenses

This allows us to deliver our timepieces at less than $400 which is a fraction of their $1199 normal retail price, worth far more than you will pledge and that will appreciate in value over time.

The timepiece is limited edition and has some features you will not find on any other watch on the market. Take advantage of the offer while it is here for this short period of time.

__________________________________________________________

Though time is fleeting, each carefully crafted Égard timepiece becomes a constant reminder to be thankful for these wondrous moments and to look forward to the future. 


In our process to come up with the infinite scale of time, we came up with the idea to put authentic asteroid dust on the dial. Each limited edition passages watch comes with dusted asteroid (some of the most primitive material in the universe) on the dial so you can walk around with a piece of the universe on your wrist. 

The entire vision of this watch came about by a chance encounter with William Shatner. Casper Van Dien, an ambassador of the Egard Brand, was followed by William Shatner on Twitter. 

When Mr. Shatner saw the Egard timepiece on Casper, he immediately wanted to own some of our timepieces.

Mr. Shatner enjoyed wearing our timepieces and requested to meet with Casper and I. We spent well over an hour discussing horology, time, the universe and family. There was a strong connection because of my intensity to what some might call an obsession with time: Mr. Shatner related to it.

We discussed the meaning of time passing as we age, and the few true moments that reflect a good life, moments not to be wasted.

It was that same philosophy that inspired me to make my first watch for my father. My father (seen below wearing a timepiece I made for him) is the inspiration and motivativation behind my company.

Sometime later Mr. Shatner reached out to me to discuss how to bring our mutual vision to reality. 

From our initial meeting, it quickly grew into many sessions of us sitting around discussing what the watch could be, sketching out ideas and discussing what was important to him in a watch from both a functional standpoint and a personal standpoint. 

(screenshot from my initial realization of the watch in 3D)

What resonated most was "The passages of time", Mr. Shatner’s idea that represents the valued moments in time, for himself his family and generations to come. 

We wanted to create a timepiece for others to share in the philosophy and experience with us...

Bill and I embarked on a YEAR LONG JOURNEY to build his signature timepiece to be dedicated to his grandchildren and signifying the passages of time. Through the year, we created more than just a watch. We created a piece of mechanical artwork that you can wear on your wrist signifying the passage of time…

However, we both realized that we envisioned a watch that was unique, but would also have to be extremely functional.

*JUST TO NOTE, WE WILL ASK YOUR COLOR PREFERENCE AT THE END OF THE CAMPAIGN

100% of the funds will be used for the first round of the Egard Passages production. After more than a year of conceptualizing, designing and manufacturing fully working prototypes we are ready to move forward!

All the work is done, we have our prototypes and are ready to produce the watches! The timepieces should be ready to be shipped by February/March.

DON’T WORRY! WE WILL HAVE A SPECIAL GIFT FOR YOU FOR CHRISTMAS TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOMETHING UNDER THE TREE.

The collection has taken over a year to design and prototype.

Our company Egard has produced many luxury timepieces and already has manufacturing relationships fully realized. We have weeded out the problems on past designs and have a very strong sense of everything we need to do to complete this project at the highest quality within the deadlines we set.

When it comes to quality control we are borderline obsessive and offer a 3 year warranty to insure that you feel comfortable buying a timepiece from us. In our belief the most important aspect to any company is how it takes care of it's customers.
