To ensure nothing but the best, we have been working alongside one of the best timepiece manufacturer in the world that have been producing brand name watches around the globe for decades.
At Kataphrakt, we took a different approach to minimalism. We crafted more, to encapsulate the beauty of astronomy without sacrificing balanced, artful composure. Ronda 708 Swiss movement instead of cost saving Japanese miyota quartz movement, rotating moonphase dial for our iconic design language and uniqueness, engraved crown and model names for an exquisite feel, double stacked dial with 15 degrees taper for a realism, carefully stitched genuine leather with embossing to last through out ages and so much more.
Each timepiece is backed by a strong two year global warranty.
We believe that limited edition pieces should truly be unique and customized to suit you. For our crowdfunding limited edition 150 pieces, you will be able to request the name of your choice and timepiece model name will be replaced by the customization of your choice.
The letters will be limited to 11 and can contain upper and lower cases from A-Z. The customization will only ever be available during our pre-order phase and be limited to 150 pieces.
Traditional watch distribution methods involve many distributors and middlemen with multi levels of markup which can result in excess of 300% or more.
At Kataphrakt, we do things completely different by supplying our timepieces directly to you. This allows us to avoid multi-level markups and middle men, allowing us to provide you with a Swiss movement luxury watch for USD$99.
We can all say it was fate when a life changing encounter happened. Having never before seen an eclipse, it was a great inspiration to open our eyes to the beauty of the universe. The beautiful colours, and authenticity of the magnificence; Just taking photos were not enough. Our founder, Joshua had a inspiring moment and decided to capture the colours of astronomy and physically mate it with his unparalleled passion for timepieces. Aesthetic but classical, quality parts but unapologetic prices so that everyone could keep their time in style. After many iterations, pondering and striving for perfection, we came across a timepiece that puts other collection we have all known and enjoyed to a great shame. This was to be the first of our classic range.
Colours inspired by the solar eclipse. With beautiful silver to represent solar corona at totality, we were awestruck by witnessing of solar eclipse phenomena and decided to capture it into this classic piece.
Chroma inspired by mars and venus. Upon a chance to stargaze at mars and venus, beautiful rose gold color and chocolate terrain was the inspiration for this exquisite piece.
Black and gold cues inspired by capturing the moment between sunset and night. We have embodied the beauty of this daily phenomena into the timepiece.
