WE'RE BACK

After 8,500 + happy backers and 5.1 million raised from four HIGHLY successful Kickstarter campaigns, we’re back, pushing beyond what our fans have ever dreamed of.

Rebel-AR Swiss Automatic

This collection celebrates NASA’s audacity to build the Saturn V, the most magnificent, outrageous rocket.  It’s a tribute to the unwavering determination and grit of the thousands of people who created this totally remarkable vehicle.

In 1961, when Kennedy pledged to put a man on the moon, NASA had little idea on how to get him there.  A new rocket was needed to rise to the challenge but developing such a colossal machine would push science and engineering to its limits.

Each LIV Saturn V timepiece is crafted based on specific design elements of the Saturn V Rocket and the moon landing.

The design challenge was substantial, “How do you properly commemorate something as colossal as the Saturn V in a timepiece. What elements of the Saturn V launch vehicle could be realistically adapted to grace a quality timepiece?”

Our design team was struck by the final four-part (or module) construction of the Saturn V launch vehicle. Building on this spark of inspiration, the team went to work. Over several years and multiple prototypes, we created LIV’s own four-part system: case back, case, anodized aluminum ring, and bezel.

The result is a rugged, feature-rich timepiece that can survive the rigors of daily use and would fare quite nicely on a trip to the Moon.

So, why did we decide to use titanium instead of steel with the new bronze watch? Well, here it is. Bronze could be corrosive when it comes in contact with steel, and we mix in the moisture and oils from our wrists.

Titanium does not react at all with human tissue, is almost impossible to corrode, and provides additional benefits in an ultra-fine-grained alloy that includes increased wear resistance, strength, and antibacterial properties. The end result is the cool factor of patina with the anti-reactive properties of titanium.

With a few simple steps, you can restore that beautiful bronze luster to your LIV Saturn V Watch. Here’s the short course.

Citric acid from sliced lemons and even sodas can be used to clean bronze. A touch crude but effective. Bonus tip: you can also clean corroded car battery terminals with a soda and steel brush. 

On second thought, use either Brasso or SimiChrome together with a soft cloth and non-abrasive cleaning brush, like an old toothbrush, not those 3M-style scratchy pads.

Put a soft, clean towel on a counter, pull up a comfortable stool, and prepare your Moon Dust for cleaning. Remove the strap (bracelets can stay put), and put some masking tape over the crystals. Yeah, sapphire is tough, but why take any chances? Follow the directions on the Brasso or SimiChrome, and before you know it, 

Et voilà – the bronze is restored.

Flawless Timekeeping

A watch is only as good as its movement, the mechanism that powers its functions. We’ll equip each Saturn V watch with an exceptional mechanical or quartz Swiss movement. We’ve personally sourced these from only the best Swiss movement makers. Once in our Swiss workshops, we’ll meticulously inspect and fine-tune each movement, adjusting our mechanical movements in as many as five positions to an accuracy up to +/- 4 seconds per day. This unrelenting focus on precision will translate into a flawless performance on your wrist.

Meticulous Craftsmanship

We’ll only use the best materials in these watches, which we’ll craft with insane attention to detail. We’ll machine solid billets of 316L stainless steel, For our Moon Dust automatics, backers have an option to choose the original case material, bronze combined with Space Age titanium. We’ll then hand polish each case to a pristine finish. Our signature multilayered dials will incorporate elaborate modern and time-honored finishes and textures. The dial will feature a moon dust pattern on the upper ring, accented by large, hand-applied indexes with generous amounts of BGW9 Swiss LumiNova.

Obsessive Quality Control 

Each Saturn V watch may contain as many as 206 parts and pass through the hands of up to 55 skilled craftspeople. During assembly, we will continuously inspect each timepiece for impeccable fit and finish.

Once assembled, each timepiece will undergo rigorous testing to ensure unfailing performance. Pressure tests will subject the watch to the conditions expected in dives to 100 meters. Specially designed machines will determine our crystal’s resistance to scratching. Finally, impact tests for durability and position tests for accuracy will be employed. All this testing is to ensure your LIV watch will serve you reliably through a lifetime of adventures, even if that includes a trip into outer space.

The design team realized that one movement in the Saturn V Series had to feature a true moon phase complication to honor the vehicle that took the first men to the Moon. Fortunately, ETA, the pre-eminent Swiss movement manufacturer, had just the thing, their quartz G10.962 EO Swiss Chronograph with Moonphase. The video demonstrates just how cool this movement is in action.

Nothing says quality in the world of horology like the label, Swiss Made. To bear any Swiss label requires intensive attention to detail and compliance with rigorous governmental regulations. Switzerland recognizes the importance of the watch industry to its economy and protects Swiss products’ reputation zealously.  All our movements are crafted in Switzerland and undergo intense testing in the land of the alps.

LEATHERS & SILICONE:

We use fine skins sourced from Italy and France to produce our leather and sharkskin straps; all are handmade by artisans with a true passion for the art of strap building.

Our metal bracelets are custom made from 316L stainless steel and IP coating. To make sure the color is applied perfectly evenly, we coat each link individually. The high precision stainless steel will never rust, no matter the environment in which you find yourself.

Some features:

  • Pins on all links to make it super flexible and highly adjustable.
  • Clasp locking mechanism is a double button system with pin adjustment, for a greater range of sizes.

When a company is all-in when it comes to attention to detail and quality, packaging is naturally going to receive the same treatment. Our designers want the LIV experience to begin the moment you open the box. Inside that innocuous container, you’ll find a sleek LIV bag that cradles the signature LIV watch box. Carefully remove the sleeve and open the top, and behold, your new watch is at hand! We include all the essentials like warranty information and certificates of Limited-Edition status. There is also a cleaning cloth and other goodies to kick your LIV ownership off to the perfect start.

Free shipping to all US backers. Flat rate of $15 for shipping and insurance to all global backers. Free shipping to all global backers who select two or more watch rewards.

We stand firmly behind our watches; We feel so comfortable with our quality, that we offer a Five Year International warranty against any manufacturer defects.

Since we believe that one should LIV and be happy, we practice that with our return policy. So if for whatever reason, you’re not 100% satisfied with your LIV watch, no problem!  We feel so confident that we have a 90-day, no question asked return policy for a 100% store credit. You can also exchange your watch within 90 days for an item of equal or lesser value. We believe it’s the right and the only way to go as a company. The LIV Way.

Our story began in 2014 when we launched our very first watch on Kickstarter. After two decades in the watch industry, we realized a need for a new type of quality, precision watch; we set out to design handcrafted, unique, limited-edition, Swiss timepieces. We established LIV Swiss Watches as a bold new boutique direct-to-consumer brand built on real people-to-people connections.

 

The model we envisioned was revolutionary and straightforward at the same time, offer watches direct to consumers and eliminate the massive markups that inflated prices in the traditional distribution system.

The first Kickstarter campaign in 2014 was so successful, we used the approach three more times, each more successful than the last. How did we perform, and what did we launch? The following summarizes each campaign.

– At the end of 2014, we launched LIV Watches with the GX1 on Kickstarter; getting fully funded within the first 11 hours!

– Just over a year later, we brought the GX1-A to life and received over $1.1 million in funding.

– In March 2017, we launched the Rebel, receiving more than 1.7 million dollars from over 2,900 customers, many of whom had never even heard of us. It remains the most crowdfunded Swiss watch at that time.

– Not resting on our laurels, we launched our most ambitious campaign to date in 2018 featuring four different new models, offering a whole new level and variety of timepieces: a Diver’s, an Alarm, a Pilot’s, and an Automatic Chronograph.

The Saturn V campaign will be our fifth. We expect it to continue the trend and enable us to continue to deliver Swiss quality at accessible prices directly to our fans, collectors, and watch freaks, existing and new. Join us in the watch revolution and claim your Swiss masterpiece today.

We stand firmly behind our watches. We feel so comfortable with our quality, that we offer a Five Year International Warranty against any manufacturer defects.

We launched these four watches on Kickstarter at the end of May 2018 and ran a 30-day campaign there.  It was hugely successful; it was fully funded within 10 minutes and raised $400,000 within 48 hours!  Once our Kickstarter ended, we wanted to continue to give people the option to preorder these magnificent watches and tap into the amazing savings offered on Kickstarter, and so we extended the content of our Kickstarter onto our own platform.

When you select a “reward,” you get to reserve a specific type of watch, as indicated on the “reward” level (Alarm, Diver’s, Auto Chrono or Pilot’s).  Once you actually purchase the “reward,” you’ll be able to choose the exact color you want and provide us with your shipping info!

Every “reward” level states when that specific reward will be shipped, so be sure to check there ;).

By pre-ordering on this platform, you get to save up to 51% off the future retail of the watch.

Yes! We offer free shipping in the US, and to all international backers with more than one watch reward.

Yes! Each model is limited to 1,000 pieces, except for the Titanium Pilot’s which is limited to 500 pieces. The Limited edition number and serial number will be engraved on the caseback of each watch. Your watch will also come with a Limited Edition certificate.

The estimated delivery date provided on our crowdfunding campaigns is our best (educated) guess at when the watches will be completed and ready for delivery.  To be clear, it is not a ‘promise.’  This estimate is made before funding has been secured and production has even begun. It does not take into account the potential for challenges and obstacles that inevitably arise during the creation of any product, let alone during the production of a precision high-quality timepiece.  Our top priority will always be producing the highest quality watch possible and we can not allow delivery estimates to ever interfere with that.

These are the terms that apply when you make a preorder on this platform:

  • Payment will be deducted the moment you make your pledge. You’ll be asked for your payment method when you make your pledge and the amount you have pledged will be charged immediately.
  • Cancellations / Refunds. Our launch platform is a crowdfunding campaign. All pledges are used towards the costs of producing the product.  Therefore, no refunds can be offered once the pledges have been collected. We do offer an opportunity to return the watch for a refund once it has been delivered, within 90 days or receipt.
