Hi everyone, my name is Noah and my business partner, and brother, is Dave. Below is a brief overview of our product, vision and campaign.
Inspiration behind the project
Going back to late 2017, I was on the market for a new watch and discovered that there were basically two options:-
• Pay an extortionate amount of money for a quality watch that I would be too scared to wear everyday.
• Choose a low quality, cleverly marketed watch that would look worn and cheap within a few months of purchase.
Having decided that I was uncomfortable committing to either option, I decided to try and create a quality watch that didn’t cost the earth.
Partnering with my brother, who has six years engineering and design experience, and with my background in finance, we set out to create a true, premium quality, stylish watch that could be worn all day, every day.
After more than a year of designs, prototypes and tweaks, it’s fair to say we have succeeded – our flagship product is elegant, functional and stylish with built in water-resistance, scratch-resistance and shock-resistance.
Far from just a pretty face.
Quality to the Core
Pompeak’s mission is to combine quality and affordability, all cased within a watch that you would be proud to wear all day, every day. As individuals, we wanted a watch that was durable enough to survive a few knocks but smart enough to turn a few heads.
After researching various watch designs, we discovered that less equals more and we were quickly drawn to the elegance of minimalism drawing on this heavily during the product design stage. To be able to produce a life-proof watch, we needed an experienced manufacturer that could meet our high standards. Having contacted, and rejected, a number of producers, we found there was only one that was could meet our specs.
Using their 20+ years’ experience, we further tweaked our design and tested multiple prototypes until we were satisfied our product was top quality.
Not Just a Watch
Sapphire crystal glass – One of the worries of owning a watch is keeping it free from damage.We’ve used one of the toughest glasses available, more that capable of withstanding drops, knocks, scraps and even the jaws of an over friendly pooch (true story), it still looks new.
Japanese chronograph movement – We down selected our chosen quartz movement with longevity and accuracy in mind. Coupled with a functional chronograph, for every-day usability.
5 ATM water resistant – Being able to survive submerged to depths of 50 metres, this will be able to handle any situation you find yourself in. When we said every day, everywhere, we meant it.
316L Stainless Steel – Surgical grade, corrosion resistant stainless steel to ensure your timepiece stays ‘day 1’ fresh.
Interchangeable Leather Straps – We know styles change, but your watch shouldn’t have to. All our leather straps have a hidden quick release design for an instant switch up.
Flawless Style – This hasn’t happened over night. Through various prototypes and iterations we have made sure we are proud of what we present. It wasn’t always easy, but boy was it worth it.
As mentioned previously, Pompeak was created out of frustration with the high mark up, low quality watch industry. One of the methods to keep prices low is to sell our product directly to the consumer. After researching different methods of direct to consumer selling, it quickly became apparent that Kickstarter stood out as the god-father of crowd-funding websites.
By using Kickstarter as a crowd-funding platform, we have managed to cut out a wide range of middle men: distributers, wholesalers, retail stores etc. meaning you get exactly what you pay for.
We need a goal of £10,000 to launch our brand and business and we are confident that the Kickstarter community will see, like and back our project.
Its all-or-nothing based approach means that if we don’t reach our goal of £10,000, no money comes out of your bank.
Having been working on this for over 18 months, we are very proud to introduce our debut collection.
You can choose to mix and match any watch face, case and strap (metallic or otherwise). Once we have reached our goal we will be in contact to gather specific details. Check out our campaign for more details on bit.ly/2NMOTsH
