Zahnd & Kormann launched their crowdfunding campaign to fund the production of a limited series of Swiss Made automatic timepieces called ZK No.1. Aiming to make a change in how Swiss Made luxury watches are sold, Zahnd & Kormann is a Swiss based watch brand that promotes transparency of origin, costs and development.
Switzerland based entrepreneurs Roger Zahnd and Florian Kormann started their project in order to express that time is the most valuable thing we have and came up with the watch slogan Time is YOURS. “We think it is time to make a change in the way how high quality Swiss Made watches are sold nowadays” said Zahnd. “With a fair and transparent pricing structure, combined with an elegant style and the technical know how and service of the Swiss watch industry, Zahnd & Kormann is bringing Swiss Made watches back to the people”.
Zahnd & Kormann watches are powered by an ETA Valjoux 7751 self winding calibre with chronograph, combined with a full triple date calendar and moon phase display. The 25 jewels movement finds its place in a classically designed stainless steel or black PVD case measuring 41 mm diameter and a thickness of 13.6 mm, genuine leather straps and waterproof up to 50 meters. The movement features a customized oscillating weight and is visible through the caseback. All watches are designed and engineered in Switzerland.
Zahnd & Kormann will launch on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter on 18.01.2017 for a 40 day campaign until 27.02.2017 and is looking to raise 375,000 CHF (Approx $372,000 USD) making this campaign one of the largest watch based campaigns ever seen. Perks include a special price of $1229 CHF (Approx $1210 USD) which includes a ZK No.1 watch, saving $1050 USD. Kickstarter backers will also receive a 2 year warranty, free shipping worldwide (taxes and customs not included) with a limited series of 2,016 pieces per design and the first 300 watches per design will be numbered.
