Our Five Design Principles
Frequently Asked Questions
How were you able to keep the cost of the Peacemaker under $1,000?
First of all, we design, manufacture and sell our watches ourselves - cutting out all of the middle men that usually add costs along the way from the factory to your doorstep.
Secondly, we source high quality materials from all over the world and then do our assembly in China. Our manufacturer works for many well-known European brands and is held to the highest quality standards.
Thirdly, we ship internationally to non-European customers from Hong Kong and ship to European customers from the Netherlands. This too cuts costs that we don't have to charge our customers for.
Why did you choose titanium over stainless steel?
Stainless steel has become incredibly popular as a material for watches over the years, because prices for steel have dropped significantly since the second world war. Since it is relatively cheap compared to other materials, many watch brands have adopted it as their material of choice. But is it really because it's an ideal material? Or just because it's cheap?
We went looking for better materials and came across titanium. We chose titanium for the benefits it has over stainless steel. It's half the weight, yet three to four times the strength. And its completely hypoallergenic, unlike stainless steel which very often contains nickel - an allergen for the most common metal allergies.
Titanium is more expensive and harder to work than stainless steel, but we fully believe its benefits are worth the extra cost.
Where are you shipping from?
European orders are shipped from The Netherlands, but non-European orders are shipped from our warehouse in one of the largest international business hubs, Hong Kong.
Are there any extra costs or taxes due after placing an order?
