Affordable stylish watches from New York’s Newton Kick Starter project offers minimalist elegance with modern beauty at unbeatable prices. The new designs have been created to produce robust long lasting and affordable timepieces, with an uncompromising style using premium components while boasting an entry price point of under the $100 mark.
Born in New York’s Soho, Newton is the dream child of a group of college friends with a keen interest in fashion. Their driving force behind their kick starter project was to produce honest timepieces of high quality while avoiding the common problems that mean high prices passed onto the customer.
The idea of Newton formed after discussing the problems of high prices in the watch industry where brands, middle men, brokers, and retailers regularly markup luxury watches without regulation. The friends started Newton to offer a new or more cost effective way to buy luxury watches with reduced markup and at the same time providing meticulously crafted handmade opulent watches.
How To Keep Costs Down
Keeping the price points keen is all about creating the right environment, building the best relationships with partners and working directly with customers. Newton’s supply chain skips wholesalers, brokers, and distributors enabling them to pass savings on by selling directly to customers online, a successful model employed by Britains’ Christopher Ward and Bremot watchmakers.
Being a small enterprise Newton pride themselves on providing a positive customer experience from start to finish, never using commission orientated sales people or retail premises that increase costs.
It is early days and right now SOHO can offer 5 color combinations.
The Newton classic collection is a unisex collection of watches with 316L stainless steel cases with a brushed finish measuring 43.0 mm face diameter. The collection features Domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, tried and test Japanese Quartz Movements with a water resistant up to 50 meters.
The straps are high-quality full grain leather from Italy measuring 115mm / 73 mm. with quick-release spring bar.
This new kid on the block is so confident of their quality and durability means that if anything happens within the first two years of ownership you are welcome to contact Newton for warranty work. It has to be said, the warranty does not cover damage due to accident, neglect or failed repair attempts, or general wear.
The Take Away
With a kick starter project, we always have to stand back and hope for the best unless we are an investor type of person wanting to take a risk and take advantage of lower prices before we know how things will turn out. Although the Newton project is new it’s by no means unusual but more in line with the progressive approach of independent watchmakers such as Christopher Ward and Bremot who manufacture their own part and timepieces, only selling online direct to their customers to keep costs down.
We’ll need to keep an eye on this up coming brand to see if it meets the expectations of its creators, but until then, if you’re thinking of buying a luxury watch there are many places to buy discount luxury watches from well-known brands.
