Our purpose is to bring you design and quality for the right price. We have been designing watches for more than a decade, and last year we introduced DWISS’ innovative time display system. The system was awarded two times in 2016, and one of the awards was granted at the European Parliament in Brussels. This year we are bringing back this system in one of our two new collections - RS1. The second one has a totally new display system - RC1.
Do you love watchmaking and are you crazy about crowdfunding?
Do you want to be part of the creation of the greatest timepiece in crowdfunding history?
Well, you have come to the right place!!! Together we can build it with no markup!!!
We are proud to introduce two large collections of watches produced with the highest degree of Swiss craftsmanship, catering to the desires and needs of every serious watch enthusiast. The collections are called DWISS RC1, a classic looking model with a centralized hour disc at the 12 o'clock mark, and DWISS RS1, a sporty collection that uses the DWISS signature time reading system.
In these collections, we are introducing for the first time in crowdfunding history a highly complicated Swiss-made watch, with the Tourbillon models . Our talking piece and the greatest watch ever presented to crowdfunding.
In addition to the Tourbillon models, we also have automatic versions and quartz models. Each and every one is an original Swiss-made, limited edition timepiece, with an exclusive, innovative and award-winning time display system, which has become DWISS’ signature.
One of the most challenging-to-make watch mechanisms, the tourbillon is a complicated movement that makes the escapement turn around its own axis, designed to counter the effects of gravity. By continuously rotating the entire balance wheel/escapement, the tourbillon averages out positional errors. Developed around 1795 and patented in 1801 by master watch-maker Abraham-Louis Breguet, the tourbillon is included in expensive watches made today by the most luxurious and traditional brands and is one of the most valued features for a collector in premium timepieces. The most virtuoso and desirable function in a watch mechanism that would once cost you 5 to 6 figures is offered for the first time in a crowdfunding campaign much much less.
All our straps are 100% Italian made, respecting Italy’s tradition for leather goods, handcrafted by artisans in an authentic leather workshop. Produced by the same manufacturer that supplies the most renowned Italian luxury brands. Equipped with quick-release pins, the straps are easily interchangeable.
“Vacchetta”: The cowhide is treated using vegetable tanning, an ancient process that certain tanneries are rediscovering. Vegetable means that metals such as chromium and other environmentally damaging substances are not used to treat the leather. In their place, tanning powders obtained from leaves, fruits, flowers and the roots of plants are used. Giving the skin an incredibly soft touch and the classic scent of leather.
- Pit Stop: The Pit Stop technical fabric is made of PVC. Thanks to its properties it is waterproof and resistant to scratches.
- “Saffiano”: Saffiano printing is made by embossing the typical cross-stitch pattern on the calfskin. After printing, the skin is treated with wax, making it resistant to scratches and giving a soft touch to the material.
Do you want to test the watch before pledging one? You can do so virtually by downloading the free APP, available for android and iOS. You can also make nice wrist shots like ours and be awarded. HAVE FUN!!!
DWISS is a multi award-winning company founded in Switzerland in 2011. The company creates limited-edition Swiss-made timepieces with unique time display systems, selling them for fair prices. We are proud to combine our avant-garde design with the tradition of Swiss watchmaking.
Last year, with the help of our backers, we created the most innovative Swiss-made watch in crowdfunding history. The timepiece was awarded with the International Design Award, and Gold Award in the luxury category by the European Product Design AwardTM, awarded at a ceremony held at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Todays’ watchword in watchmaking is micro brand. Small-scale brands that are sought after by collectors, connoisseurs and watch lovers in search of uniqueness and value for their money.
Why? The traditional way of selling watches has all but been eliminated by the internet. The highly margined watch industry and the common, standard look of the timepieces; counterfeit watches all over the market; new brands being born every day selling fake luxury items; all these factors have contributed to the crisis in which the luxury watch market finds itself today.
We cut out the middlemen and sell our watches directly to you. With our direct sale strategy, cutting out retailers and distributors, we can price our watches at half the price of the traditional market.
And on Kickstarter, we start pricing our timepieces at half of our online prices. This means that by pledging an award here you pay ¼ of the traditional market price.
Here some testimonials of our 2016 backers. Sorry for the ones not included, but if we mention all of you, the page will be endless ; ) We took the testimonials randomly. Thank you all for having written to us. Cheers!
