Just when you thought the Swiss had the market cornered, here comes Buffalo’s own Heitis Watch Company. D.J. Heider is a local watch enthusiast and craft beer guy that you may know through his work for the local scene at Consumers Beverages. He is kicking off a Kickstarter campaign November 1st featuring quality watches at affordable prices.
D.J. plans to make great watches using top quality parts including Swiss made Ronda Movements, 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel for cases and buckles and scratch resistant Sapphire Crystals. He has a nice selection that includes three different styles and some customization options such as dial color and case finish.
At Heitis Watch Company individuality matters. So each watch comes with 2 straps. He has equipped the watch straps with a quick change function so you can change the look of your watch in seconds. No tools required, just use your fingertip to easily change your strap to match your mood or outfit.
During the Kickstarter starter campaign running through the month of November, watches will be discounted as a incentive to back the project. Pricing for the Kickstarter campaign will be: Classic – $109.. $40 discount; Aviator-$129.. $60 discount; Chronograph $139..$60 discount.
These are beautiful watches and a great way to support local craftsmanship. Check out the campaign here.
