Beranger Richemann - The Racer's Watch
Beranger Richemann - The Racer's Watch

This project has already launched.

Based in Toronto and Hong Kong, Beranger Richemann was founded in 2016 by two designers, both watch lovers and history enthusiasts who saw a gap in the market for stylish, high-quality watches with a vintage aesthetic.

Our timepieces are inspired by the classic, iconic 1940s era. Our goal was to create contemporary watches with timeless designs that would distinguish themselves from the mass of mundane, minimalist watches on the market today. Something high-end and unique that stands the test of time and with versatility for all occasions. We’ve spent over a year on research and design to source the finest materials, and crafting them into elegant, functional timepieces for everyday life.

We insist on using the best, from the Swiss-made movement, hesalite crystal, and genuine leather straps. At the core of our studio is a strong desire to live more thoughtfully and more sustainably. Through everything we make, we hope to share the classic beauty of timepieces that are made to last and to honor the quality materials used to make them.

Instead of choosing style over substance, we don't believe you need to compromise one for the other. We've packed our series with top-of-line components and features usually command a premium.   

Our first collection is inspired by vintage racecars, the back of the case is engraved with an intricate racing car design.

There is a specially assigned number on the back of each watch. It marks the sequence of each of the 500 watches within the series and also one of a kind.

Glass - Hesalite 

The glass on all of the watches is made from Hesalite, known for its shatter resistance. It also has a warm domed vintage look and feels that is unique to heritage watches.

Unlike other watches in the market that are made using sapphire, we chose to use hesalite to emphasize the one of a kind vintage design. The retro-cool, vintage flair is remarkable and everyone will admire your unique style.

Dial 

Chronograph, Tachymetre printed dial.  Use the chronograph to time the daily events in your life, anything from how long it takes to get to work, brew a cup of coffee, to the length of a meeting, you name it.  Your choice of black or white.

The Case 

Our super-refined case is perfectly proportioned and is coupled with a screw-down 316L stainless steel case-back. 316L steel is an austenitic chromium-nickel which is known for its maximum corrosion resistance and durability in higher temperatures. The case was carefully designed to go hand in hand with the rich, vintage look and feel of the straps.

The watch's case diameter is 42mm.

Movement 

We use Swiss quartz Ronda 5040B movement, which is usually reserved for premium watches. This movement provides a very long battery life, as well as power saving mechanism with pullled out stem: the reduction of consumption is approximately 70%.

The Straps

Our straps are made from full grain genuine leather. Choose from 3 quick release straps to customize your look for any lifestyle and occasion. The quick release makes it extremely easy to swap straps quickly. You can go from a sporty look to a more classic look for work and formal events, all with the same watch!

 

Help us reach our strap target if we meet our target of HKD 200,000, then 4 more custom straps will be unlocked for purchase!

It will be available in 4 styles

We offer a two (2) year international warranty from date of purchase. The hands, dial, and watch movement are covered against manufacturer defects under the warranty and watch will be repaired or exchanged free of charge.

Once we have reached our target, the first 450 orders will be shipped and arrive within a month. The rest of the orders will be shipped in January 2018.  Remember, shipping is free of charge here.  Go get your watch NOW!

Risks and challenges

We are aware that creating a custom made product from scratch is a complicated process, which can sometimes lead to unexpected delays. As such we have taken the utmost care in developing firm relationships with our manufacturing partners, be it the movement company, the case company, or the strap factories.

We believe our customers have a right to know where we are at in each step of production. We aim to be transparent throughout the whole production process and we will keep you, our backers, informed with regular updates. We will respond to any queries within 24 hours, and keep you informed of any delays.
