Paris-based Gusard is launching their Kickstarter for empowering and affordable luxury Swiss movement watches today.
Luxury watches have historically been reserved for the uber-rich. But Gusard is releasing a line of authentic Swiss-movement watches at a price point everyone can afford, starting at 129€/$149. Designed by the famous Parisian designer, Damien Fourgeaud, each Gusard watch features diamond-cut stainless steel on the hour index, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, and fine Italian leather in the strap. In a world of smart watches, we’re launching the Wise Watch Revolution – sophisticated traditional timepieces engraved with a quote from heroes such as Muhammad Ali, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and more, to empower wearers to be who and what they want to be, everyday.
The Kickstarter launches today with a goal of 16k€. Fourgeaud drew his inspiration for the timepieces from Eiffel Tower’s geometry and Paris’s iconic aesthetic.
