About Vintage 1971 Automatic Swiss Made Watch

Complete your stylish look when you wear the About Vintage 1971 Automatic Swiss Made Watch. This stunning Swiss made watch takes this notable year as inspiration. In 1971, the Swiss Made trademark came into play and marks the highest in quality and precision. Only watches that meet the criteria and standards can bear this name. Therefore, it’s fitting that the 1971 Automatic Watch is the first Swiss made watch from About Vintage. The sleek yet minimalist dial comes in white or black while you have the option of a rose gold, gold, or steel case. Extending from the edges of the 1971 Automatic Watch is a sleek Italian leather strap. Inside the stunning timepiece is an ETA 2824 Swiss movement. This movement is known for excellent precision and timekeeping. However, if you want this elegance to lay across your wrist, you have to act fast. The 1971 Automatic Watch is part of a limited edition of just 1971 pieces.

Hi Kittannun Great choice.. I would go with the Mesh just to get a whole new look.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Guys, Got the survey and definitely going for black dial, silver case, and black strap. Also interested in buying an additional strap, choosing between "mesh" and "brown choco grain". Which combo do you think works better? Thank you
Lasse Bech
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Thomas,
Thanks! Then I won't fear that something went wrong :-)
I look forward to receive the survey, and especially to receive the watch when you are ready.
Best,

Hi Lasse. Kickstarter do it by the end of the campaign. But we have been told that sometimes it takes a little longer. (Up to 14 days) Best regards

Hi Sanjay. Thanks for reaching out.
Have you seen the smaller videos of the watches moving on the kickstarter that should give a good look around the piece. Furthermore the site 8past10 have just made a review (link on our Kickstarter).
You are very welcome to write me at thomas@aboutvintage.dk and I can provide you with more pics etc.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, Are any third party reviews/pictures available for the watch? I would prefer to see some side profile pics as well as pics of the watch on a wrist.

Hi Ulala,
Our logo (brand symbol) is created from the infinity loop symbol (∞), as reference to “timeless” both in terms of our design philosophy, but also the fact the classic watch in general is one of the few objects that has stand the test of evolution. In addition we have incorporated a hidden (vertical) “AV” in the middle of the redesigned infinity loop, thus becoming our very own brand loop (logo).
Ulala
Review from Kickstarter
Out of curiosity, what is the meaning of your "L" brand symbol? :)

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Sammy. Thanks for backing. No sorry we have chosen this blue colors after several tests and cant change a couple of them. But these a really nice and elegant and I'm sure you will love them. Have a great day

Any chance in getting the hands in a more distinctive, lighter blue?

Hi Adrian.
Yes it's flat sapphire glass:)

Review from Kickstarter
Hi,
I have a quick question. Why design a flat glass instead of a dome design like the other line ups that you have.
thomas andersen
Review from Kickstarter
Hi James.
Good question. To be honest, we have not decided yet. Stay tuned.

Now you've reached you target (congratulations!!) are you looking at stretch goals or offering additional rewards should you reach greater funding levels? Some campaigns offer additional items in rewards if they get 150%, 200% funded etc. �

Hi Jennifer thanks for reaching out and thanks for backing us. I recommend you to choose Rose Gold White dial. Our designs can't be changed, sorry.
Jennifer Cheong
Review from Kickstarter
The white date panel works with the silver with black dial though but not for the gold and rose gold with black dial
Jennifer Cheong
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I really love the clean lines and understated luxury of this watch. I'm torn between the rose gold white dial and rose gold black dial. I would ordinarily pick a black dial. However the white date panel against the black dial looks out of place and detracts from the luxury status this watch purports to offer. Would you consider a black date panel for the date function with white numbering instead? Otherwise it looks like you're just combining leftover pieces to make up a watch. Thanks.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Andersen, First, the stunning marriage of design and quality of 1971 totally excites me! Love it! But I wanna know more about this ETA machine you chose:
1. What level of the machine is it? Standard/ Elabore/ Top Grade (which I hope it is)/ Chronometer?
2. Does the machine has Incabloc? (As I can see it has)

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kittanun. 1. YES
2. yes that should not be problem

Hi, just a few questions. 1. Is silver case, white face, black strap an option?
2. Will I be able to change the shipping address later on?

Hi Jennifer,
Each model will have 1971 pieces yes. You will not get the number matching your pledge number exactly, but the earlier you order, thus lower production number batch you will get from.

Review from Kickstarter
How are these limited editions numbered? By order of backer pledging? Will each model have 1971 pieces?

Hi James,
1) it will be delivered with a Butterfly Clasp. You can be extra strap with Pin Buckle after the campaign if you want to.
2) The Back Case picture with 1 / 500 if a sample picture. It will look like that but say 1 / 1971 as described.
3) Please contact us directly at info@about-vintage.com and we can provide pictures
James Bloom
Review from Kickstarter
A few questions: 1) you mention in the campaign a butterfly clasp but the photos all show standard strap without clasp...will the delivered product have the butterfly clasp?
2) you mentioned the 1971 was limited edition and the back of each pictured watch says No 1 of 500, yet you say general release at full price from January...so what will be the difference between the Kickstarter watch and general release version?
3) Could you potentially show a picture of rose gold watch, white face, black strap? thanks and good luck

Review from Kickstarter
What would be dimensions if the watch?
Will will be the material for case, interior and exterior of the watch?
What are specifications of the watch?
