RzR is a micro-watch brand founded by Ricardo Zamora Rojas, a young mechanical engineer from Spain. The brand presents Tecorón, an innovative mechanical timepiece that uses the high tech carbon fiber for its structure, for achieving an extremely lightweight.
On 05th November, RzR launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to raise funds for the mass production of the Tecorón timepiece.
Dressed in a case measuring 42.9 x 49mm and a thickness of 10.6mm, the RzR Tecorón is probably one of the smallest carbon fiber watches of the industry. The parts manufactured using carbon fiber are the case, the case back, the movement ring, the outside of the crown, the bracelet, the clasp and the buckle of the strap. Presently, no other watch company in the world offers a carbon fiber watch a bracelet, and a clasp made of carbon fiber.
Each timepiece is equipped with a lightweight, thin and reliable Japanese Miyota 90s5 automatic movement. With a 3.9mm thickness, this self-winding movement weighs 9.15gr and provides 42 hours of power reserve.
Presently, the Tecorón collection is available with the “Horis Magnas” and “Lines” variants.
It took more than four years researching, developing and testing different technologies to achieve a premium watch that has more than 80% of the whole volume made of carbon fiber, that weighs 44gr and priced at only 1,200€.
By pledging the online crowd-funding campaign, the backers will be able to support the project by selecting one or more rewards starting at 828€ (-31% off the retail price) on the Kickstarter campaign with a delivery scheduled for May 2020.
