Rebel Time Watches – Breaking Boundaries One Watch At a Time – Kickstarter

Brooklyn-based watch brand crafts high-quality timepieces at affordable prices

From an area known for its creativity, cutting-edge street style, youthful spirit, and out-of-the-box ways, now comes a watch company worthy of its milieu. Rebel Time produces men’s premium watches with bold, yet classic designs without the hefty price tag.  Boasting aesthetic details normally found on expensive luxury watches — such as brushed stainless steel, 10ATM water resistance, engraved crown and caseback, and intricate dial designs — the first four wristwatches from Rebel Time are modern interpretations of aviation-inspired chronographs.

 

On his company’s position, Shneur Lakein, Founder of Rebel Time, stated, “Our priority is to create high-quality, great looking watches that are affordable. We’ve spared no expense on crafting our timepieces and insist on using the best materials possible while still maintaining reasonable prices. We’ve hired Swiss watch consultants to oversee the manufacturing process to ensure we get it right from the get-go.” He further added, “There’s a gap in the market for superb quality timepieces at value-driven prices targeted to style-conscious young men. We are rebelling against the idea that sophisticated premium watches have to be pricey.”

 

As illustrated by their success on Kickstarter, the Rebel Time ethos of offering craftsmanship-focused wristwatches at attractive price points has resonated well with their backers. The company reached their $10,000 goal in just under a week and they are now campaigning for their first stretch goal to fund local strap manufacturing.  As a Brooklyn-based brand, Rebel Time is looking to support the local New York economy by outfitting their watches with leather and rubber straps made right in the heart of New York City. Strap options include vintage brown leather, oiled brown leather, black cushion leather, and black rubber.
