When you think of a timepiece that is exceptional, you imagine one that is stylish and reliable. You likely also envision a high price tag. Wright Watches is striving to change that by resetting expectations about what price a gentleman should have to pay for a luxury watch. The new micro brand is hoping to disrupt the watch industry and make fashionable watches more accessible to the everyday man.
Based in Cyprus, Wright Watches seeks to make high fashion affordable, selling their luxurious timepieces at an entry-level price point of €199. Critically acclaimed by top sites like Watch Judge, the Wrist Watch Review and Watch Is This?, the inaugural line of watches is called the Noctua series.
The timepieces reflect modern design sensibility with simplified, sleek faces; however, they have a timeless quality that allows them to defy trends and remain stylish year after year. A Miyota 8215 Automatic Japanese Mechanical Movement drives the timepieces, and the watches feature double domed sapphire crystal faces and 316L stainless steel cases to ensure quality.
To introduce their new line of affordable luxury watches to the market, Wright Watches has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indie Gogo. The brand is hoping to raise €35,000 to fully fund their launch. As of the time when this piece was written, the company had received €1,270 in pledges and had one month remaining in their campaign. Rewards include new Wright Watches at discounted prices and are expected to ship in February 2017.
