A collection of comments from customers who have received their watches. I have not kept this area current. Sorry. We are a busy making watches....
Just wanted to email you after I've received probably my 50th compliment on my watch. I was a Kickstarter supporter way back when and got the 48mm quartz.
I love the attention to detail with the mill work, and find the tanned leather to be some of the finest I have seen on any type of product. Just an all around great watch.
You should be proud of your work. I certainly am.
All my best,

Thank you very much for making such an awesome watch. I can't go anywhere without someone stopping me asking me who makes it, hopefully I've brought some business your way!
I am going to look into buying a skeleton version soon :-)

As im not a backer from kickstarter, i cant post anything on the kickstarter thread.. so i will just email you my comments here =)
I pledged my watch back during April 2012, a few months after Henry's kickstarter campaign was funded. I am a student studying in Singapore and I asked henry if I could pledge the watches according to the reward level on kickstarter (cheaper than on website) and pledged for a quartz watch and subsequently upgraded to a skeleton watch. It was definitely a long wait but the shipping notification finally came @ 14 Jan 2013 and 10 days later on 24 Jan 2013, the package arrived finally at my doorstep.The simplicity and yet sophisticated design of the watch is DEFINITELY a conversation catcher. Everything else about my hand looks dull with the watch on it. For being polite and patient, Henry threw in a 48mm Non-watch as an added bonus with no extra charge. Loving the watch so much , Thank you henry! Love from Singapore.01/23/2013
I was a supporter of the Swiss Skeleton Mechanical watch ($650 pledge) and I too received my survey back in October. I am happy to say that on 2nd January I received a shipping confirmation and today received the physical watch.
Its required some patience, and I will admit at times became frustrating, but I have to say that in the end it was well worth the wait. It looks very well made and is definitely extremely cool, Im very happy with it.
I did end up sending Henry a very polite email about the status of the watches relating to the October survey a few weeks back, he mailed me back with an update then shortly thereafter sent the watch.
I just wanted to get this post out there as I know there's probably a large portion of backers like me who are patiently waiting for their watches to arrive. They do exist and they really are fantastic.

Henry, I commented in the main site, but just wanted to share with you as well - love the watch. It is even thicker than i expected, but after wearing it for a few days I got used to it and I really like it. Lots of compliments from friends :)
Thanks again- I'm sure it was a long journey to get here, but it is definitely a beautiful product.

Just a short note to say I received my watch and it is phenomenal. Everything I expected and more and definitely worth the wait. If you start any further projects then I'd be happy to hear about them.
I will be posting favourable comments on the kickstarter soon.

I have been enjoying my Skeleton Solid Watch for several months now, and I wanted to take a moment to thank you. I was just going to post a comment, but I was unable to access the page.
I think my work on HAAS CNC's and design engineering background really helps me to appreciate the uniqueness and aesthetic of your product! Definitely fits with Da Vinci's belief that "Simplicity is the ultimate in Sophistication." Looking forward to seeing what projects you come up with next.

Your watch's revew is up :)
Would you happen to have pictures of the other models? (automatic, quartz, etc.) I'd like to add them in to be more complete :)
I'm LOVING the watch! When you said that some people said that they really enjoy it because it's FUN, I now
understand what they felt - it's not a feeling we can articulate well given the subject matter... but yeah, this watch is
REALLY FUN to have and look at, and tinker with :)

Some good words,(I know you got plenty of the other kind) the watch is beautiful minimalist but complex and intriguing-classic shape and I hope it last for a long time.You delivered on time as promise.
Should I be very careful around water? I probably would't mind getting spare crystal and band later before you go on your next project. I like Philip Glass music and Frank Gerry architecture and your watch fits in.
