GILLIZE Distinctive Minimalist Watches

Stand out from the crowd when you wear one of the GILLIZE Distinctive Minimalist Watches. Effortlessly pairing with your style, there are four models of these timepieces. The collection is called MENO and each model offers its own aesthetic while staying true to the minimalist theme. In addition, the GILLIZE Watches all showcase a marvellously unique glass reflection to add another dimension to viewing the time. The MENO -blinded- has a red, orange, and yellow glass reflection and a brushed case. The MENO -black- uses a black strap and a brushed case to make the slightly blue reflection stand out. Meanwhile, the MENO -white- delivers the same slightly blue reflection with a brushed case. Each of these come with your choice of four strap colors. Finally, the MENO -black&blinded- has the same reflection as the MENO -blinded- but with a PVD black case and black strap. In addition to their unique style, the GILLIZE Watches from the Kickstarter campaign feature an original founders’ edition engraving.

This watch is probably the best thing I have backed on Kickstarter (out of about 45 things). I honestly wasn't expecting much but I received a rad product. Someone will comment on my watch at least once a day. Thank you.

@Alexander: Dear Alexander, please note that a delivery from Germany to Saudi-Arabia needs approx. 6-10 days. We have checked your tracking number that we sent you and it says: "The item was scanned in the country of destination Saudi Arabia at Oct 2, 2017. Unfortunately the tracking and tracing of the destination country does not offer a data interface with the tracking and tracing of Deutsche Post AG. Further information is also provided by the website of the country of destination." We guess, that it will arrive in the next few days! Depending of course on the processing in your country. Maybe you haven't seen our Update Nr.10 which includes the link where you can fill in your tracking number?
In the event, that something went wrong with your tracking number, I will send it again via PM. If you have any questions, please PM. BR

@ Creator; I like the way you are thinking.
Stretch goals often make the delivery time not as promised anymore.
GILLIZE
Review from Kickstarter
Dear Alex Hobbs, we have decided against stretch goals for our campaign and here is why. All of the possible options for stretch goals would complicate the whole planned process of our project (purchasing, manufacturing, delivery time etc.). Our highest priority is to fulfill our promises and focus on what is most important: To deliver the best possible product… -in time! :-) We hope you can understand our decision. BR
Andreas & Helena :-)
Alex Hobbs
Review from Kickstarter
@creator any chance you guys will add stretch goals? I know you can't exactly add more watches but I'm sure we can come up with something.

@Jennifer: Hi Jennifer,
sure, you can ask everything!
Our watches will be assembled in China. Our manufacturer, which we have carefully selected, has more than 30 years of experience in the watch business and is also the supplier for other well-known brands (from fashion to luxury brands). We see them as a very reliable partner that are taking care of meeting our quality requirements.
Nevertheless, each watch we will check personally and send it only to our backers, if it meets our (german) understanding of quality.
Of course you can send it back to us if you are not happy with your watch and you will get a full refund.
But believe us, when you have one of our watches, you won’t miss it anymore. :-) BR
Andreas&Helena

Review from Kickstarter
May I ask where these watches will be assembled? I have several KS watches assembled in China and some were not assembled properly e.g. hands on CHronograph not pointing to 12 o'clock position at the start etc. What quality checks will be carried out to prevent that from happening?
Jennifer Cheong
Review from Kickstarter
Done, thank you.
GILLIZE
Review from Kickstarter
@Jennifer & ALL: The watch will be deliveres with one strap of your choice! ONE strap is included and for extra straps you have to pledge additional 9 EUR per each (during the campaign).
After the successful campaign you can choose your watch-model + favorite strap(s). Hopefully everything is clear so far! If there are any open questions, just let us know! BR
Andreas & Helena :-)

Sorry I meant I was after the blindsided Meno watch
Jennifer Cheong
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I'm currently on the super early bird pledge for €99. What colour watch strap does the watch come with? Do we get to pick? I'm after the blindsided silver watch and would like the olive green, steel gray and blue nylon straps. Do i add to the pledge now for 2 extra straps now or at survey stage?

I completely understand your point of view, but this will definetly make me rethink if I want to stay as a backer till the end or not. Thanks anyways.
GILLIZE
Review from Kickstarter
@Rohil:
Hi Rohil, We absolutely know that there are other ways. But please understand that we have found our own company and we will only go through the official way. Everybody will get his correct invoice and this is the base for customs etc.
We are not looking forward to do this as a hobby and we don't want to act like someone who maybe just want to sell sth very fast at KS to make some money.
Thank you for your understanding. BR
Andreas & Helena

Review from Kickstarter
Well one way I know is of marking the invoice on the shipment as a low value... this certainly helps and most of Kickstarter creators do it to help backers. Other way is by marking the product as sample or a gift, which eliminates the possibility of any customs.

Review from Kickstarter
@Stefan:
Ja, du kannst natürlich auch andere Bänder nutzen. Voraussetzung ist, dass die Bänder am Steg 22 mm breit sind. Du müsstest ggf nur den vorhanden Federsteg entfernen und durch das neue Band ersetzen.
Wir haben bereits Mesh-Bändern getestet und diese passen einwandfrei! Grüße

Unfortunately we don't have an influence on your countries customs and duties. And from our side there is no possibility to circumvent it, sorry. BR Andreas&Helena

Kann man auch "Standard" Uhrbänder nutzen?
Evtl. sogar ein Metallarmband?

Review from Kickstarter
Is there any way you can help us circumvent customs and duties? Because at this price my customs and tax cost will be close to 50€...
