We sincerely hope you are doing well and keeping safe; what a year 2020 has been! We want to start by saying thanks for your continued support and being patient with us. After several launch delays, we are finally ready to open pre-sale for our first offering, the Burrard!
We will begin taking pre-orders directly from our website for the white dial and black dial Burrard watches on Tuesday, November 17, 2020!
Check out the Burrard here: The York & Front Burrard
As it is a pre-sale, we estimate that you will have your Burrard on wrist just in March 2021. An approximate timeline is:
- Pre-sales open November 17, 2020
- Pre-orders will be available until our first production allocation has been met, or our pre-order close date of December 1, 2020
- Production will begin immediately upon the close, with our manufacturing partner in Switzerland estimating a 90 day turn around
- We should have the first batch ready to ship out in March 2021.
- We will keep you posted should we experience any changes in our production and order fulfillment timelines via email, our website, and on Instagram.
We are making a few changes to the production models
We are making some changes to the production models based on feedback that we have received. As always, happy to hear what you think or if you have any suggestions!
- Increasing the diameter of the crown from 5mm to 6mm. We want to make the crown a bit easier to grip onto and use. We also think it will balance the watch slightly better.
- Changing the lume to the Super-Luminova BGW9. This will appear bluer and will glow brighter. We believe that it will look cleaner against the bright white dial.
- As detailed in previous posts, we have moved from the Sellita SW200 to the STP 1-11 due to movement procurement challenges with the Sellita. The STP 1-11 will be manufactured without the date mechanism, so there will be no phantom date wheel beneath the dial and date setting position on the crown stem.
- The text on the back case is not perfectly aligned on the prototype. This will be corrected in the production models.
