UNSUCCESSFUL : Kickstarter: Base Timepieces - FD.1, an SR-71 Inspired Flieger Watch

Base Timepieces, out of Chesterton, IN, have launched their first Kickstarter for their debut model, the SR-71 inspired FD.1.


Early Bird pricing is $350
First Edition pricing is $400
Regular pricing will be $450

Estimated delivery is June 2023

The BASE FD.1 is a mid-sized flieger timepiece inspired by one of the greatest aeronautical engineering feats, the SR-71. We incorporated the sleek curves of the SR-71 in the case, the stealthiness of the aircraft with the black matte finishing, and the instruments in the dial.

The FD.1 is available with several strap options:
- "REDACTED" (included) - black leather with custom stitching, quick release spring bars, and black buckle with logo.
- "RECON" - brown leather with custom stitching, quick release spring bars, and black buckle with logo.
- "BLACKBIRD" - premium black nylon NATO style strap with black buckle and keepers. “B” logo on the buckle and “BASE” logo on the keeper.
- "HABU" - premium tan nylon NATO style strap with black buckle and keepers. “B” logo on the buckle and “BASE” logo on the keeper.
- "HARNESS" - black “Marine Nationale” style strap with a black buckle and laser etched “BASE” logo.

Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find
