Netherlands based Huet Brothers (HB) is well-known for the ultra-rare cars they (re)build, as well as the luxury Swiss Made watches they offer. They have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of their Benefactor Chronograph watch. This campaign gives backers the ability to be a part of the creation of a new watch – and a new coupe.
The HB Benefactor Chronograph 2018 is being designed using concepts from already-made HB cars. The Classic will offer a dark brown strap, while the Sports model will feature a black strap with red accents and stitching. There will also be two sizes available – 40mm and 42.5mm. The watch is powered by a gold plated, 10 Jewel Swiss Made Ronda Quartz Movement, with a battery life of 4.5 years.
The watch and even the leather Strap are rated at 100 meters waterproof. The back of each will feature the HB steering wheel engraved into it, along with a unique identification number. Other features include luminous numbers, a 316L stainless steel case, and double domed sapphire crystal.
HB offers 10-year international guarantee and 90 day return policy. Capital raised through Kickstarter will be used to fund the Benefactor Chronograph 2018, and extended funding will go toward the HB Coupe design, moulds, prototype, and production. If the campaign raises more than €4,000,000, HB will draw one unique identification number from one of the Benefactor Chronographs to win a Founder’s Edition HB Coupe.
