Lufbery WW1-Inspired Pocket Watches

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2017-02-15

Give your style a little something extra with the Lufbery WW1-Inspired Pocket Watches. Reminiscent of the pocket watches issued to the British military with an iconic logo, the Mark VI Pocket Watches are rich in history and class. With five available editions, these pocket watches offer quality materials and a timeless aesthetic. Each of the pocket watches uses a Japanese Seiko VD78 quartz movement for precision and accuracy. In addition, the outer casing features stainless steel for a durable yet classic design. Complete with a long chain and T-bar, the dial measures 50mm across as well as just 11.9mm thick. Finally, the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass protects the face as well as contributes to the 30-meter waterproof rating. The Mark VI Pocket Watches range in color of the watch face and bezel.

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks Stuart, I worked it out after :) I think as the crown/lug came already down I didn't realise it could go up and down.

Hi Andy, Pull the lug at the top of the watch (above the 12). Apply a bit of pressure and it will pop out and then you can adjust the time. Stuart

Thank you, I received my watch, very nice. Just one quick question, how do I adjust the time on it?
Thanks Andy

Cheers Randal! We are actually in the process of design a wrist watch now. It is going to be inspired by the trench watches of the First World War. I'll keep you posted. Stuart

Review from Kickstarter
It has been over a month since I received mine and I am still loving it. I love pulling it out of my pocket in front of others to check the time and see how they react, it is always favorable. Please, do keep me posted if you are going to do a wristwatch. As with the pocket watch keep the thick sapphire crystal.

Hi Stuart, I have received my two watches. It was worth the wait. My kids are going to love them. Thanks, Jose

Hi Jose, The watches have been sent out. I'll speak to my fulfilment partner tomorrow to see what is going on. Stuart

Hi Stuart, I know that you mentioned that there was an issue with my order. I haven't received any shipping or tracking information on this. Can you provide me an ETA? Regards, Jose Martinez
Lufbery Watches
Review from Kickstarter
Hi James, I think you may have trouble sourcing exactly the same hands as they are a bespoke creation made especially for Lufbery. Also, you can't really buy one pair, the minimum order from a supplier would be for 500. Thanks, Stuart
Jose Martinez
Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Stuart for confirming. Can't wait to receive them. I saw a few videos alrady on the internet. They look amazing.

Hi Jose, Apologies. I checked with my fulfilment company and there has been some kind of error that led to your watches not being shipped. They are now on their way to you. Stuart

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Stuart. I have already posted about relieving my watch. Very happy and enjoying it more and more. A really nice feel to the piece, excellent finish for a superb price.
One thing I find is that the black handset on the black face makes legibility difficult occasionally. Not a criticism I must stress as everything is clear in the pictures supporting the campaign. I was going to see if I could swap the black handset for a silver set instead to help with this. I wondered if you could tell me where you (or your manufacturer) sourced the hands in the hope I can source the same type (as the style compliments the watch) but in silver so I could get my watchmaker to swap them out. Thanks in advance. James

Hi Stuart, I'm in California and haven't received my watches either. Any idea? Regards, Jose

Hi Rusty, Push the crown at the top down, that should start the watch movement. Thanks, Stuart

Review from Kickstarter
I returned from vacation in Italy last week, and was pleased to find my Lufbery watches waiting for me. I had hoped to have received them before my trip, as one of them was intended as a wedding gift for the British groom. I'm not finding a user manual included with the watches. i didn't find an obvious link at lufberywatches.com either. How do I start them running? I presume I open the back in order to engage the battery, but I don't want to force it. Help?

Hello Stuart, For various reasons I'm minded to dispense with the chain and put the watch on a leather 3mm round cord but would like to put a themed "toggle" on the cord. Any chance you can let me have a copy of the pheon graphic to include the the part that I will be 3D printing? Regards, Martin

Hi Stuart Goy the new watch. Thank you! I'm out of luck. The minute hand is still shifting slightly. It will do for my work. Thank you and all the best Marc

Hi Andrew, Backers in Australia have received their watch and I am really sorry you haven't received yours. If you could hang on for another week and get back to me if it hasn't arrived that would be appreciated. Thanks for backing the campaign and I can guarantee you will receive your watch one way or the other. Thanks, Stuart

Review from Kickstarter
Has anyone else in Australia received their watches yet, I'm still waiting on mine?
It would have been useful, at least for international shipments, to have a tracking ID, then I'd know where it is at and would likely not need to send messages like this?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Timothy, Huge apologies that your watch has not arrived yet. I used Royal Mail International to deliver the watches and they haven't been as efficient as I would have liked. If the watch hasn't arrived by this time next week please get back to me, but the chances are there is a delay at a depot along the way. People are still receiving their watches now. Thank you for your patience, Stuart

Glad you like it, Rand! I originally planned making attachable with a leather strap but it was very hard to design something that worked. I am thinking of bring out a wristwatch model in the future though. Sorry for the delay in getting your watch by the way.

Received my watch today. Very nice work! I love the heft of it. Any thoughts of making a leather wrist strap for it? Like another Kickstarter project perhaps.

Hi Stuart I received my watch just wonderful. Heavy clean beautiful !!! But I have the same problem as Yuji. The minute hand is shifting left to right and back when turning it. It is hard to adjust the time properly. Tilted to the left when the minute hand is almost reaching the minute mark. I tilt it to the right and the minute hand move after the minute mark. :( I'm a train conductor. I have to check my watch everyday with the atomic clock and be within 20 seconds of real time. In my field of work commuter train. I have no use for approximate time. I could return my watch to you. For a refund if all your watches have the same problem. Sorry! Marc

Hi Yuji, There seems to be a problem with your watch. I'll get a replacement for you in the post. Thanks, Stuart

Review from Kickstarter
Hello Stuart,
I received a watch.The quality of the watch is very wonderful.
However, there is one point to worry about.
When I tilt the watch itself, the long hand is swung left and right and moves.The range to move left and right is about 1/3 of the 1 minute indicator.
Will a long hand of a watch arriving at another Backer move when it tilts?
