Good luck Brice! Your watch is too big and thick for me, but I hope you get funded!

Dear MoT community,

After much consideration, I have decided to cancel the Time Locker Kickstarter campaign to come back to Kickstarter in the Spring.

The demand for Japanese automatic movements such as the NH35A keeps growing while manufacturers can't keep up. This explains why our delivery time was so long. I believe this had a serious negative impact on the performance of the campaign.

Sellita has to face supply issues with parts purchased from ETA. Brands are now looking for alternatives such as the Seiko movements. Seiko needs time to adapt to the increased demand. Thus I decided to relaunch Time Locker on Kickstarter when I can offer a shorter delivery window to our backers.

I see this as the perfect opportunity to improve the watch designs. I have created a short survey. Feel free to take it to let me know what points I should improve: design survey.

Thanks and best regards,

Brice

I know that wasn't an easy decision to make, but I feel you made the right one.
We have been hearing that sourcing movements was going to be more difficult with ETA pulling back from sourcing outside the Swatch group.

Thanks for posting the survey.
