As you all well know I’m not a big fan of three-handers but friends, just look at that face. This Kickstarter watch promises some lovely French design with an actually Swiss movement and a price tag – oh that price tag – that might make your Madame blush.
Laventure is founded by Clément Gaud, a former watch agency employee who designed for the “biggest players in Swiss watchmaking” including Audemars Piguet, HYT, and Tissot. He has finally gone into business for himself and this wildly beautiful package promises to be a true Swiss sleeper hit.
The watch starts at $1,600, not bad for a fully-Swiss piece, and he’s almost sold out of the first run. He’s already raised $213,697 and the Kickstarter has 21 days to go.
It looks like something Tin Tin would steal out of a rich heiresses’ personal library in order to solve the mystery of the missing Sphinx.
The brand is showing great promise even in this early iteration and, unlike so many small brands, its led by a true veteran in the space. I’d love to see this thing in person and we’ll be requesting a review over the next few weeks. That said, grab it while you can.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
