Elegant watch at a fantastic price

Everything about this watch is elegant and classic. The face is a great size and it’s overall clean (minimal) look is refreshing! I’m struck by the watch’s lightweight and slim design—it’s easy to forget I’m wearing it. The nato strap I’m using really is a nice quality and contributes to the light feel. A leather band might add some extra class to this already-classy timepiece. I highly recommend.

Amazing Quality

I recently purchased the Bordeaux NATO strap classic watch and I fell in love with it! Great quality, the domed sapphire crystal is beautiful, and love the classy look. Not even watches in Tokyo have qualities like this. Love from Japan!

Time Goes By

I received your watch not realizing that it came with a 36mm face as opposed to a 40mm. I returned the 40mm but of yet have not received my refund.

The world’s only
transparent watchmaker

By pulling back the curtains on modern watchmaking, we’re aiming to do away with industry short-cuts and cheap solutions. This commitment doesn’t make us the biggest, nor does it make us the fastest growing company, quite the contrary. But we believe that qualities like honesty and transparency are desperately needed these days.

Icon Sapphire Glass

Sapphire glass

Sapphire glass is the number one component that luxury watches have in common.

It is scratch resistant and highly durable. Sapphire glass is available in the $4-$15 range. The price is determined by the hardness of the glass. Harder glass is more expensive to cut because the cutting blade is a diamond.

Italian Strap

Italian nylon straps cost $5.8

About 2/5 of the cost is the band material and the rest is due to stainless steel buckles and the rose gold coating that is applied to them.

The coating of our rose gold case is a mixture of pure gold and copper.

The plating on steel cases are measured in the thickness of uM, one uM is 1/1000 of a 1 mm. A plating of 0.6 uM would last for about 6 months, a plating of 1 uM would last for 2 years and our plating of 6 uM lasts basically forever.
