Good luxury timepieces usually retail from four figures onwards, making it only a dream for the common man to own one. Not anymore. Filippo Loreti, a watch company that hails from Milan, the fashion capital of the world, is spearheading a revolution in the luxury watch market. Now, you can purchase a beautiful limited edition quality timepiece for only a fraction of the price.
Filippo Loreti partnered with some of the world's leading timepiece manufacturers to produce gorgeous unisex watches that are currently being offered on Kickstarter
for only €99 each inclusive of shipping (SGD$148). These watch manufacturers whom they are in collaboration with have been in the industry for decades and have produced luxury watches for high-end brands that retail for over thousands of dollars.
The company had spent the last two-years tirelessly working with jewelry experts and renowned watchmakes in developing multiple prototypes, perfecting the designs and fine-tuning the watch movements. They have taken inspiration from Italy’s age old traditions of world-class craftsmanship and rich Italian culture in bringing a series of numbered limited edition watches with varying complexity and styles to tickle your fancy.
Filippo Loreti watches are made from a composite stainless steel polymer, offering high strength and relatively low weight, ensuring that the timepiece fits comfortably both men's and women's wrists. They are so confident in the quality standard of their watches that each is covered by a 10 year warranty.
Every part of Filippo Loreti's watches is made with the finest material, right down to the strap. According to the campaign page
, they use naturally tanned leathers sourced from the best Italian tanneries to create the perfect wearing experience. Then, in collaboration with local artisans, they handcraft soft, stylish, durable straps that fit wrists of all sizes.
Not only has Fillippo Loreti got the design and quality of their watches down pat, they, like any other luxury brands offer exclusivity that comes along with the brand name. Each watch model is limited to 500 pieces. Yours will be assembled by hand, individually engraved with its own number and will come along with a certificate of authenticity, ensuring that you will be able to own a watch that is rare, unique, and truly yours.
