FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why work with me?
I have been concentrating on luxury watch design and original watch design for 6 years and am currently in the prototyping stage of my own watch brand. During this time I have built a resourceful network of trusted people and manufacturers within the watch industry, from here in the UK to Switzerland and Hong Kong. I speak native English and communicate clearly and effectively. This might seem expected but another service could leave you frustrated. Most importantly, you know who you are communicating with and can rely on that consistency.
There are agencies in Switzerland and China that are offering watch design services and I’m sure some of them are good, however I offer a much more personalised approach. Clients are in direct communication with me, rather than speaking to various departments and people at different times.
Starting a watch brand or creating new watch designs is an expensive process. If the watch design or branding isn't right are you prepared to pay for multiple revisions, and spend more of your time and energy trying to get it right when you could be focused on other aspects of your business? I want you to be happy throughout the entire process because I know how frustrating it can be working with partners who don't understand exactly what you want or who are unresponsive to your questions.
Do you want an un-inspiring, generic watch design that is lacking in detail and looks like everything else on the market, or worse, a cheap imitation? I strive for the opposite - original watch designs that will stand out and proudly display your brands identity and story. Capture your customers attention, imagination and desire with a truly unique watch design.
What does a watch design cost?
Designing a watch requires a specific understanding of not only design, but also how its components like the movement, case and dial of the watch come together to form something functional as well as attractive.
A complete original watch design starts from £15,000 and can increase depending on the complexity. This means every part of the watch like the dial, hands, case and other unique parts or textures that make your watch special will be designed from scratch. This cost includes concept sketches, 2D realistic renders, a 3D CAD file with technical documents/measurements, and weekly calls and communication during the process. Other services such as photorealistic renders, packaging design, manufacturer selection and production management are a separate cost.
Another option is designing individual watch components like a dial, crown or set of hands which you can use if you already have a watch case design/supplier. Let me know exactly what you looking for and I will always do my best to help you.
I am not the cheapest person to work with, but my unique combination of watch knowledge, design ability and communication will save you valuable time and cost in other areas.
How do I start?
Let's have a conversation where we can discuss the finer details and possibilities for your watch. Once I have a clear understanding of your desired specifications, timeline and project budget, I will begin creating concept sketches of your watch.
As well as sending you these hand drawings, in the process we can share ideas for the watches' movement, reference photos, thoughts and suggestions to help the design evolve. This collaborative approach ensures our visions are aligned and I am on the right track. I find speaking on the phone once a week is a good balance, and this is of course included in the watches' design cost.
