Paris based watch brand GUSARD launched an online crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter on October 27th for promoting its new collection. The timepieces from this series pay to the greatest heroes in history.
Every Gusard watch will be engraved on its back case with popular quotes of the world leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad Ali, Thomas Jefferson, E.B. Browning and many others.
Driven by Swiss quartz movements, these timepieces can be categorised under two families: the Mentor and the Coach. The Mentor series offers minimalist time-only watches with a choice of 36mm or 40mm diameter cases. The Coach offers chronograph models featuring 42mm case.
Total 10 models are available: six from the Mentor and four from the Coach.
Depends on the model, you will discover the quotes of 10 prominent world leaders.
