SUCCESSFUL : Kickstarter: Direnzo Watches - DRZ 03 Eclipse dive watch

FULL TRANSPARENCY, I backed and received the Direnzo DRZ 02. And love it. This one isn't for me, but I highly recommend Sergio and his designs.


After two successful Kickstarter campaigns, Direnzo watches has just launched their latest Kickstarter for the DRZ 03 Eclipse dive watch.
Campaign is fully funded and will hit the first stretch goal momentarily (currently has raised about $90k)! the first stretch goal is UNLOCKED!
I imagine the next stretch goal of $150k will be hit in the next hour or so, where all backers will receive a free tropic style strap. Second stretch goal also UNLOCKED!



46 hour Super Early Bird pricing is $499
Early Bird pricing is $518
Kickstarter pricing is $544
Regular retail price will be $699

Watch comes with:
- Stainless steel bracelet
- Presentation cardboard watch box
- Linen watch wallet/roll
- Nylon parachute style strap (colour of your choice)

For $30, you can add a vegetable tanned German made dark brown leather strap with vintage style stitches and quick release pins

Estimated delivery is September 2020

Backer #6, pretty eager for this one.
Another spec monster for the value and from an already well-received microbrand.

As a backer, you should be able to ask in the campaign in FAQ.

Can't say I recall reading which color lume he was planning to use.

The 300k CHF stretchgoal is an upgrade to the elaboré grade SW200. Very high chance this will be met.

This is the second Kickstarter project I've backed and the first that hit its goal. Fell in love with the dial as soon as I saw it a couple months back. And as of this morning, it looks like the 300k stretch goal has been reached! Sergio clarified in the comments that the goal was USD, not CHF, and the counter shows $302k at the moment!

It is very nice. It seems the grey variant mirrors the eclipse effects the most. I wish they had a real-life pic of the red!

Shame Sergio wasn't able to get a prototype of the red dial made in time.
But I trust him that it will look superb.

Seems like a very successful campaign. I still can't decide which colour to get. I thought red would be it, but hard to pull the trigger without seeing how it looks in real life. I like the black/grey version as well, and it seems to convey the esclipse effects the best.

Some folks on WUS brought up how straight the lugs seem to be. Argh. I hope the watch fits me well.
