The NVK Watches by Nick Von K out of New Zealand is bringing a complete new design to the the traditional wristwatch. Inspired by a rock n’ roll lifestyle, these watches are rugged, stylish, and only come in all black to complete the look. Von K, a professional jeweler, and his business partner Richard Boers are looking to bring you a style of wristwatches to people looking for a brand that represents their image.
They’re turning to Kickstarter to help them launch their product outside of New Zealand. Already working with manufacturers, they have built a working prototype. The prototype watches have already been seen worn at the New Zealand Music Awards by model, Colin Mathura-Jeffree.
The all black leather wristwatch comes in 4 designs. You can get the face designed with a Skull, Snake, Lion, or Wings. Each design comes on an all black face with a silver outline. For an additional $10 you can also get spikes put on your watch depending how metal your style is. All orders are also mailed in custom designed watch box with the Nick Von K insignia on it.
This project is pretty sweet and has a great deal of potential. A lot of Kickstarter project designs lose quality during the translation from blueprint to manufacturing. However, his background as a professional jeweler, makes me comfortable he can bring a product from great design on paper to real life.
I also love this project because it is very reasonably priced and makes our STEAL list. For $140 NZD or $114 USD, you can get one of your very own for the early bird. Once this project is over, it will surely retail over $200 USD.
