Customization Process (quick overview)
The down payment 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 1-color dial print and personalized caseback engraving (engraving available on Classic and Tactical models).
The base price includes the 1st printed color on the dial, additional printed colors are $110 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 in San Diego, California - Tell Your Story.
Production time for a customized watch is on average 9-12 weeks; however if you require it in a shorter time, we offer RUSH service for $249 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), pricing starts at $1,250.
Start YOUR design; the $245 down-payment is always applied towards your total.
Thank you for your time,
