Hey Watchuseek community, I am Calvin, co-founder of CJR Watches and I would like to thank the Administrators of WatchUSeek for permission to introduce my KickStarter project.

I am Calvin, co-founder of CJR Watches.
Inspired by the romance of early automotive, nautical and aviation, we began to design and make a small quantity of CJR watches – the design of VELOCITA was first created. In CJR, we all entered the ring with an eye toward giving their consumers an unconventional yet affordable experience, rather than just another watch product.

Encouraged by all the positive comments on VELOCITA, we are introducing our AIRSPEED, the first regulator automatic watch on Kickstarter. We are launching this watch on June 14th! Save the date, and sign up on our website now for the 10% off while it's still available! http://www.cjrwatches.com/

Design of Air speed

The AIRSPEED reinterprets the vintage regulator-style mechanism in haute horology and appears in an avant-garde design with a price tag for everyone.


The separation of the minute and hour hands on to different axials and sub-dials gives the face a unique look. Inspired by a love of aircrafts, watches and all things mechanical, the AIRSPEED is made to resemble the cockpit’s dashboard and instruments. Its finely curved durable glass flows directly to the edge of the case, breaking the light in a much softer way, while improving its optimal legibility.


The jet black dial and matching white hands draw the eye, but a closer look reveals an alluring fluorescent inner ring – a design feature that is unlike any other.

AIRSPEED also comes in Beige. The beige dial with silver hands and black hour markers make for a classic piece that can be worn with your best suit yet tough enough to withstand the rigors of daily life

Hey Calvin, the CJR Airspeed looks great. It reminds me a little of what Ressence is doing without the complicated mechanism and astronomical price.

Best of luck with your new project!

The separation of the dials and the fluorescent inner ring is a really great touch. Would love to get more details.

Hi Calvin,

Personally I think that the plastic face and the watch being $500 might put some people off. Could there not be an option to have a glass face?

Thanks,

Steve

Beautiful watch! I just signed up too, but sadly for that price I don't know if I can justify it. Don't get me wrong, its beautiful and I would love to wear one, just a bit too steep for what you get. That's just my opinion. Of course I don't know what your expenses are in making this, but just off the top of my head, I would say $349-$399 price range.
I wish you the best, and I am going to try my best to get one.
