We’ve seen an unbelievable amount of Kickstarter watch campaigns in our time here at Coolector HQ but never one quite like this Huet Brothers Benefactor Chronograph Watch. The reason that this project is so unusual is because not only will you be on the receiving end of a stunning looking, Swiss made, timepiece if you back the campaign but you will also be helping the brand to produce a spectacular new Coupe car to boot.
The Huet Brothers Benefactor Chronograph Watch on Kickstarter is such a unique campaign because most watches on the crowdfunding platform only focus on delivering the timepiece to their backers but with this one, you’ll get the added incentive of helping to bring a super cool looking car into the world as a happy coincidence. By securing your own numbered Swiss Made Huet Brothers watch, you’ll also help fund the HB Coupe Prototype and watch it come alive with regular updates on its progress.
Luxury Lifestyle Essentials
Watches and cars are two of life’s luxury essentials in our opinion here at Coolector HQ and you’ll be helping to bring both to fruition if you back this Huet Brothers Benefactor Chronograph Watch on Kickstarter. This eye-catching timepiece has been designed from the ground up and gets its aesthetics from the interior of the cars Huet Brothers produce. It is available in two models: The Classic with dark brown strap and the Sports version with red highlights and a black strap with red stitching.
The Huet Brothers Benefactor Chronograph Watch is also made in two sizes – namely, a 40mm for the smaller wrist and a gentlemen size of 42.5mm. Boasting a first class Swiss Ronda movement which is a gold-plated, with a 10 Jewel repairable quartz movement crafted from Swiss parts in Switzerland and has a battery life of 54 months. With 100m water resistance, this fantastic automotive inspired timepiece is ready and waiting for any adventure you can think of.
A real stand out feature of these superb timepieces is their straps. Huet Brothers teamed up with Hirsch from Austria to deliver their signature straps with holes corresponding to their Coupe’s steering wheel and these are also waterproof. The fact that these leather straps don’t actually soak up sweat or moisture also helps enhance the lifespan of the strap. The caseback is engraved with Huet Brothers’ steering wheel and they are all individually numbered to make yours unique to you. With prices starting at just €295 for these magnificent timepieces, it’s hard to believe that they’ve got great features like 316L stainless steel, double domed sapphire crystal glass and a matte dial with luminous numbers.
With these Benefactor Chronograph Watches from Huet Brothers acting as a catalyst for the creation of their own coupe release, the quality is expectedly high and each watch tested before they leave the factory in Switzerland to ensure the Swiss Made perfection is accompanied by test reports. In addition, each timepiece is numbered and its owner is hand-written into their HB Benefactor Ledger. That’s their way of keeping you on file, but it’s also a way to track watch numbers and their respective owners – an old school cool method of doing things. Last but not least, they come with a 10 year international warranty for that extra piece of mind we all demand when it comes to timepieces.
We’re big fans of automotive inspired timepieces here at Coolector HQ but the Huet Brothers Benefactor Chronograph isn’t just inspired by cars, it hopes to be the driving force behind creating one and that’s definitely something which we can get behind. If you love vintage styled watches with a contemporary twist, these will be right up your street and the sub-£300 price tag is a miraculous one considering the quality on offer. Head on over to Kickstarter now and bag yours for a bargain price.
