With Christmas and New Year coming up we thought it would be nice to give another update. Our prototypes are currently being produced and the production drawings from producers look promising. The 12th of January we will fly to Hong Kong and between the 15th and 17th of January we will visit our producers and receive the first prototypes of our DR.W. watches. We can’t wait to see them and share them with you! Keep a close look at our Facebook, Instagram and website not to miss anything!

We also received leather strap samples from our suppliers in Italy. We were generally happy with the design and quality of the samples we received. We have selected a preferred supplier and are planning to visit them for making a final selection of 3 or 4 preferred straps. We currently use the straps ourselves to see if the quality stays well over time. So far they look great so it seems the first selection of a supplier has been made!

The packaging has been another topic of our time and interest. We made a prototype using leather and felt. We requested quotations for producing a felt pouch with a leather string to close it. We will get back to you once we received our prototypes.

You might already have seen it on our website or Facebook, we also introduced the story how we want to give something back to society with our watches. Every watch model that we make will have its own story. Our first watch model is called DR.W. Jurre, named after Reinder’s nephew who suffered from Epidermolysis Bullosa. Read in our awareness part how we want to raise awareness and contribute financially towards fighting Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Leaves us to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New Year! We would also like to thank you for all the interest, support and the tons of many useful tips & tricks we received from you! Without your help, DR.W. wouldn’t have been anywhere near of where we are currently!

Time is ticking (so fast that it’ll be soon 2018)…

David & Reinder
