Birline watches with Harris Tweed straps

As young professionals, we were looking to buy a luxury watch with a clean and classic design at an affordable price – but most watches looked and felt the same. We wanted something different that looked good in our modern lifestyle; something stylish, affordable (priced under $250, £150) and practical. We experimented with many materials and designs until we stumbled upon Harris Tweed. When we began with to working with this unique material we soon realised that no one in the world uses material like this to make watches. We use the highest quality tweed and handpick the brightest colours to match our sleek ultra-thin style with simple and sophisticated lines. These sophisticated and minimalist timepieces are perfect for both casual and formal occasions.

Alexander Andersson answered my initial email, but is not answering anymore.
Disrespectful and poor customer support. Kickstarter does not do anything to protect "customers" from scams like this.
Birline stole my money and I have nothing to show for it.
I'll have to file a fraud report with my credit card company now. At this point in time, I think I should setup a review site of all the Kickstarter projects these.
Other than warn other people online, there may not be much we can do.
I've already started to cancel future pledges from Kickstarter projects.
Tyhr Trubiak
They have been posting on facebook.
When I posted on their site, they made a response for me to email "andy@birline.com".
I emailed "andy@birline.com", but did not receive a single acknowledgement.
I want either the product I pledged for, or my money back. This is one of my biggest issues with Kickstarter. There appears to be zero protection for the investor - even if they successfully make the product.
Tyhr Trubiak
I still haven't received anything, and they have not answered a single email I sent them, either through kickstarter or facebook. They continue to advertise on facebook. The updated a new post just 3 hours ago.

I wrote my previous comment one month ago and I've sent you a personal email regarding delivery. I haven't received any answer. I'm left with confusion. Are the watches on their way? WILL they be on their way?

Tanay Deshmukh
Hi there, still haven't received my watch. Have all of them been sent?
CL Loh
Thank you. I have received the watches today. I must say the watches are gorgeous. They look better in hand than in picture. It's elegant and the time is easy to read.
The strap is stiff but after a while it is so comfortable. I must say this product surpasses our expectations. Now only time will tell its durability. Thank you and well done.
Edward C.
Have all the watches been shipped out now?
Nicolas Wong
Hey just received my watch. I must congratulate you guys on a job well done! Just as I expected. Hope to see more from you guys in the future!
CL Loh
Sorry, if I understand correctly. It means that not all the watches have been shipped out as of now? Would there be a tracking number? Thanks.
Ying Tai, YEUNG
Hi, is it possible to get the tracking number? Thanks.
Phischer
Thank you!! The watch is stunning!! You did a really great job. I can recommend this watch to everybody.
Paul-Marie OLIVA

CL Loh
Waiting patiently here....
Crixus
I received my Birline today, really pleased with it. I had high expectations and they were well and truly satisfied - great work. The straps are no doubt the main draw and yes they are awesome but i would like to highlight the dial - absolutely stunning. Thanks guys.
Alexander Andersson

Jerry Chee
Hey Andy and Alex, just wanted to say that I appreciate the honesty and updates thus far. It's definitely not been as smooth sailing as we'd all hope it would be but you guys are awesome for perservering through. Keep up the good work!
Alexander Andersson
Hi everyone, we have just posted a delivery and production update in the updates. The fastest way to get a reply from us would be if you email us on hello@birline.com
Alexis PETITEAU
Hi, have you got any news (like shipping dates) for all of us? I am not the only one to ask as it seems...
Jordan Barker
Any news on likely shipping dates?
Benjamin Otter
Yes I'd be interested in news as well
Paul-Marie OLIVA
Any news ?
Alexander Andersson
@Paul-Marie
That is to early to say. This is our first large order from the manufacturers, we will keep you updated on every stage. Bare with us, I promise to do all I can to get them sent as soon as possible. We are on schedule so far!
Paul-Marie OLIVA
Great :)
So can we expect to get it by Christmas ?
Alexander Andersson
@Paul-Marie and everyone else.
We have everything prepared and orders are ready to go. We are just waiting for Kickstarter to finish processing the money. As soon as we get this we can pay the initial fee to our producers and they start manufacturing. We are looking at a quick change solution for the strap, more on this after we have finished evaluating it. We will keep you updated through every part of the process. Kind regards
Alex & Andy

@Creator

I pledged for 4 watches (3 option + 1), because I love the way they look. I would like to have them in 2 different widths (20mm and22mm), but the survey only has the 1 radio selector.
Can I write the different width for 4th strap with the colors, or am I forced to only be able to select 1 width?
Michael Carr
Great news...just made my choices and can't wait to start wearing them!
Alexander Andersson
