Watch Reviews: Behind the Scenes

Watch Reviews: Behind the Scenes

Something that interests a lot of people outside of the watch community is the process of sending our prototypes off for review.

We've been really happy to discover the interactive nature of this watch launch - we never expected so many to be involved.  It makes this all feel like much more of a team effort.

The Metropolitan - Manufacturing update

The Metropolitan - Manufacturing update
We visited the dial factory in this past week and checked out the progress of the final samples there.  We made a few tweaks to the lume to achieve the best balance of colour in the day time vs brightness at night and think we have the winning formula. We've also started discussions on the next model. 
All is looking good for our schedule of October 2018 delivery for The Metropolitan!

Our Kickstarter Experience

Our Kickstarter Experience
So our Kickstarter campaign is over and we’ve moved on to pre-order via our website.  It’s an unusual move to go straight to self funding if a campaign wasn’t successful so I believe its worthwhile laying our experience out here to explain our thinking as well as share our experiences for anyone that may benefit.

Taking all things into consideration, the build quality is fascinating all over – especially the exquisite dial completed to a level that I’ve not quite seen before from a newcomer.

Watching this dial day or night is like watching a very expensive piece of art at The Louvre. Honestly it’s mesmerizing.

I explained that there are whiskey drinkers and whiskey connoisseurs... There are people who drink only major label stuff and those who seek out small batch whiskies... It’s the same with microbrands. I told her we will be the small batch whiskey of watches

I long for watches like this. I long for a tangible product like this to invigorate, excite and entice me. 

Highly contemporary. Highly inventive. Bucket loads of fun!

In a world of divers, it’s refreshing to see a sporty watch that doesn’t require a rotating bezel. The Ayers Metropolitan watch is this, and more. It’s a fully modern, dedicated follower of fashion. Oh yes, it is. With a fully luminous dial, it requests, no– demands further examination.
