With one goal in mind; that of bringing exquisitely crafted and designed Swiss watches, which are capable of rivalling the best Horology brands, to consumers while also being easily affordable, Aston Cain has once again taken to Kickstarter.
Following on from the successful Kickstarter campaign of the Aston Cain | 001, the brand is proud to unveil their newest timepiece, the Aston Cain | 002, a Swiss component chronograph watch which has spent the last year in development.
With one successful product launch under their belts, the details and specifics are the most important aspect of the campaign. The 002 is minimalist in its design and look. With three distinct finishes; Classic, Rose Gold and Midnight, the Aston Cain | 002 is engineered with simplicity in mind, the 002 looks sharp and sophisticated, while also being able to be worn in any setting.
It features a Swiss made electronic quartz mechanism utilising a 5 step p/s sweeping movement. A 42mm machined stainless steel case, a sapphire crystal glass face and Spanish leather strap which can be replaced by a stainless steel chainmail strap. Capable of 50m or 5ATM water resistance and with precision time keeping with three sub-dials on its face, the 002 certainly has the looks and functionality to rival some of the top brands and this belies its more than affordable price point.
With their fanatical approach to design, expertly sourced manufacturing partners and an already successful product under their belts. Aston Cain is looking to secure a minimum order run through Kickstarter backers who’ll be the first in line to receive this timepiece. With an 85 GBP price point, which translates to about AU$182, for a watch that looks and performs this well it’s a steal. With just over two weeks left of the campaign, time as always is running out to be the first in line when it ships March 2016.
