Watches are beginning to become a dime-a-dozen thing on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. With all the new brand start-ups it can be difficult to make yourself stand out from the pack. Another company hopeful to kick off their brand via crowdsourcing is Yes Man Watches, who feel they have something different to bring to the table. The question is, is it enough?
2014 is here and so are a new crop of watch brands trying to make their way into the world via kickstarter. Though it’s hard to say how long these brands will be around, and what their watches will be like in person, we can’t help but find it exciting to see people try.
There are a handful of options available for those who have the desire to own something of their own; a customized, one of a kind timepiece has a certain allure that draws many a buyer. Such a task can be accomplished by modding an existing watch with dial and hands of your choice, or using an online service to create something more personalized.
High-quality, ultra thin, versatile, fashionable and affordable. Does that describe a watch you would like? If so, Rossling & Co. has something to show you. Rossling & Co. is a new watch company started by a pair of brothers who are using Kickstarter to help get their new watch off the ground and in your hands. *Update: the project got funded in just over 1 day!
Crowd sourcing… seems like everyone’s doing it these days. And, why not? It’s probably the best way ever to realize your dream project. And as we’ve seen a few times over (Pebble, Anstead, Sioux City Watches), it seems to work out well for watch brands. Today, we’re going to take a look at 2 new crowd sourced projects, one for a dramatically inexpensive quartz watch, and the other for a lust-grade mechanical.
We don’t often talk about wooden watches on worn&wound… in fact, I believe this is a first time. While the use of interesting materials in watches is something we are very excited by, and wood certainly is an interesting material, rarely do the watches themselves come together to really win us over.
