A Swedish design house, Linjer, has released a new crowdfunded three-hander and broke through their funding goal of $15,000 in a few minutes. When the smoke cleared on the first day the company cleared $145,000 for their minimalist quartz pieces, an amazing feat.
The watches are basic Ronda three-handers with a beveled or non-beveled dial. Starting at $159 they are closer to Christopher Ward than anything else and purely a fashion item but, given the clear interest in the brand and the 800+ backers, they struck a chord.
The watches come in three sizes and various styles including an all black model with white pips. They plan on shipping in November.
Why the world needs another minimalist watch is a question for another time and place but good on the team for blasting out a massive crowdfunding campaign in such a short time.
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.
