Lenvino Watch Co., launched in Hong Kong in January 2017, is described by its founders as “a group of watch addicts with the passion and constancy of traditional watch craftsmanship” who aim to “awaken people’s minds about the core function of a watch.”
In 2017, the microbrand launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the “World’s First Minimalist Design Rectangular Tourbillon Watch.” After 40 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$427,860, resulting in the most-backed tourbillon project in Kickstarter history that year. Back in April 2018, Lenvino launched the Lecronos “Race for Vintage” collection (that you can read about here) and raised a total of HK$1,344,752. On the heels of this success, Lenvino Watch Co. returns to Kickstarter to introduce its latest collection of timepieces.
Lenvino has launched seven total projects on Kickstarter and has received over $2.5 million in funding worldwide. Each collection has been successfully delivered to its backers and has received positive comments that are visible on the brand’s homepage. With the success of its previous projects. Lenvino Watch Co. returns to Kickstarter to introduce the Lecronos’ second collection: “Rock for Vintage.”
Lecronos takes its name and concept from the term “chronometer,” a descriptor for a watch with high accuracy and precision, and with it the Lenvino team strives to create authentic, high-quality timepieces by combining traditional watch craftsmanship with vintage-inspired design codes — timepieces comparable to those from high-end luxury brands but at a fraction of those products’ retail prices.
Since the brand’s founders have a strong passion for classic rock music, they have curated the ‘Rock for Vintage’ collection. Each detail is a nod to the features of classic rock instruments. The case design features a unique microphone design, the dial references jukeboxes, and the caseback design recalls classic speakers. Inside the watch is a Japanese Seiko NH 35A automatic watch movement with a 40-hour power reserve and accuracy of plus or minus 20 to 40 seconds a day. Additionally, the brand offers an interchangeable Italian calf leather strap and a Milanese strap for buyers to choose from.
The price starts at USD $199 and there are many discounted packages for supporters to choose from. The first 450 pieces of watches will be individually numbered. The watches will come engraved with a “N゜XXX/450” script on the caseback.
This collection is inspired by vintage rock music in the 1950s and 60s. The watch is characterized by a creative dial designed to resemble the box outline and music panel from the vintage music jukeboxes. To differentiate the design from huge fashion watches that are going out of style, the domed sapphire crystal mirror decorated with the jukebox featured design print and the stratified dial printed with minutes (outer part) and hours (inner part) numerals in hemicycle pattern. The time is indicated by the colored minute and hour hands and the second’s disc. The spinning of the second’s disc resembles a turntable.
The “Rock for Vintage” collection sports a case with an original microphone design with an inner-curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a single curve sapphire crystal that is known for its excellent scratch-resistant on the front and a screw-down transparent caseback with vintage speaker design prints pattern from the rear, allowing wearers to enjoy every movement of the laser brand marked movement rotor and balance wheel motion.
Viewed from the side, the dome crystal joins the case back flawlessly through a smooth curved surface. The lug-less design makes the strap flush with the caseback, providing the watch with a more streamlined fit on the wrist. The strap also features a quick change spring bar system allowing wearers to swap out different straps for every occasion.
The “Rock For Vintage Collection” range comes in four color combinations, with the chance to choose the case and strap colors as the campaign concludes. Dial variations include All Silver, Blue and Silver, Black and Bronze, and All Black.
The interchangeable watch straps are made from genuine calf leather and come with polished 316L stainless steel buckles engraved with our brand name “Lecronos.” The straps have a width of 20 mm x 20 mm, a unisex functional length suitable for most customers, and nine holes for adjustment. They are available in four different colors and designs: Navy Blue, Black, Brown and Dark Brown
Lenvino follows strict procedures to ensure the quality of the watches it produces. Every watch is quality controlled, undergoing a technical control check, quality assurance check, and a final quality check which involves a QC engineer rigorously testing all watches (e.g. water resistance , movement test, plating test, and drop test ) to ensure the watches are functioning well before dispatching the products to customers.
