There are three basic watch case styles to choose from and each style comes in stainless steel or pvd (black coated) steel finish. The Classic watch, the Aviator watch, and the Tactical watch.

Our 42mm Classic watch model is depth-rated for 300 meters [which is 1000 feet; deeper than humans can dive]. The Tactical model is a 44-mm combat-gear type timepiece built with rugged engagement in mind and a pronounced dual edge case styling to make the ultimate resounding statement. The 45mm Classic is depth rated to 3000m (that’s 9000 feet) with the integrated helium valve.

The deposit of $245 is applied towards your total and will secure your space in our production run schedule; then we begin the tailored design and customization process. The starting prices include design work and visual mockups, individual renderings and revisions, the watch and the customization which includes a dial art and personalized caseback engraving (engraving available on Classic and Tactical models).
The base price includes graphics created in a dial art transfer process; which creates a beautiful reflective gold metallic design on the black dial; for color / multiple color dial art produced with our traditional Swiss dial printing machine prices are $150 per color. Printing a multi-color logo/design is rather complex as each color requires its own separate art film and printing plates, ink mixing and individual print alignments, multiple test prints and then the final print. The price of your customized timepiece will depend on the complexity and colors of your printed design, as well as the Swiss movement you choose to power your watch. Everything we make is handcrafted personalized to you; Swiss components with American craftsmanship – Time for Your Story.
Production time for a customized watch is on average 8-10 weeks depending on complexity of your project; however if you require it in a shorter time, we offer RUSH service which makes production time approx. 6-8 weeks (depending on your design) and we offer PRIORITY ONE service if you require your timepiece within 3-6 weeks. Our minimum order is one (1), customization pricing starts at $1,250.
