DWISS RC1 & RS1 Mechanical Watches




DWISS RC1 & RS1 Mechanical Watches Watch Releases


DWISS (Design Watch Independent Switzerland) is bringing 100 Swiss made limited edition mechanical watches to crowdfunding, using the Caliber ETA 7001, a hand-winding top grade movement. During the crowdfunding campaign, backers will have the option of engraving their names on the movement (or any word up to 20 letters). The new models – DWISS RC1 Mechanical and DWISS RS1 Mechanical – were created to complete last year’s collection, DWISS R1. The campaign will start on Monday January 29th at 1 p.m. Swiss time (UTC +1); 4 a.m. Los Angeles (PST); 7 am New York (EST); 12 p.m. UK (GMT); and 8 p.m. Singapore and last for 12 days.

The first crowdfunding campaign in 2016 presented the collection DWISS M2, which was awarded two design awards; IDA (International Design Award) and ePDA (European Product Design Award), the latter granted at a ceremony held at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The second campaign, DWISS R1, introduced for the first time a Swiss made tourbillon to Kickstarter in 2017, making it the greatest watch ever presented to crowdfunding yet. This collection also has automatic and quartz versions. The tourbillon uses a Concepto 8950 movement; the automatic uses the ETA 2824-2 elabore or top-grade; and the quartz uses a Ronda 714. All of them are available to pre-order here.

This third campaign aims at achieving funds solely to purchase the mechanical movements and complete the R1 collection with a hand-winding masterpiece. The movement is a semi-skeleton, top-grade, ETA 7001 (2.5mm thick, 17 jewels, Incabloc shock protection system, and 42 hours of power reserve) and beats at a rate of 21,600vph (3Hz).
