Newton SoHo Minimalist Handcrafted Watch

Complete your everyday look with the Newton SoHo Minimalist Handcrafted Watch. This exquisite timepiece comes in five different styles to work with any wardrobe. As the name states, the SoHo Minimalist is wonderfully simple. It features a 43mm stainless steel case complete with scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass. Below the surface is an equally minimalist dial complete with sleek indexes and minimal branding. In addition, the SoHo Minimalist designs are each named after iconic Manhattan streets. They include Broadway, West Broadway, Wooster St., Prince St., and Spring St. Each varies in the color of the dial, case, and even the strap. Extending from each case is an interchangeable Italian leather strap that is as soft as it is practical. Overall, the SoHo Minimalist sports a waterproof rating of 5 ATM to fit into your lifestyle. Incredibly, all of this comes at an affordable price.

Any production updates?
J Foxx
Greetings Justin, Thank you for your insightful commentary. We'll take your thoughts on board moving forward and strive to be better in future. Your feedback is much appreciated.
Justin
J Foxx: while i am, in the end, satisfied with my order i do have to agree with the commentators. the specific language you chose to use is exceptionally misleading. here is the first example-- i got early bird. on the pledge section it says "any newton watch of your choice" a new paragraph starts and then says "numbered edition." this alone gives an idea that your single any watch will be numbered based on if you were in the first 60 backers. the second instance of misleading language is found in the section of the campaign called "limited to our first 60 backers" which then simply states "We are excited about the new SoHo series, and it opens with our Numbered Founders Edition timepieces limited to our first 60 backers. As founders, we want to give you something a little personal." no where is it indicated that this watch is available ONLY in place of your selected watch. below this, you further confuse the issue with the "rewards and shipping" section which says the early bird gets 1 watch of their choice. there is no additional language to say "1 chosen watch OR the special edition," which is only available to early birds. While i personally recognize it would be cost prohibitive and foolish of you to give out up to 60 free watches it is certainly not unheard of. When i first got the early bird i actually thought i was getting a free founders edition with my selected watch (which would have been the broadway). instead, only well after to committing to your ks did i realize that that was not what you meant despite your word choosing. in the end, i opted to get the founders edition as a gift for my sister. however, i would have much preferred for us to both have ended up with a watch from you as i initially planned at the time i made my pledge. your language and word choosing should be much tighter and more accurate for future campaigns.

Greetings David, The only watches that are coming numbered are the limited edition rose gold watches with the mesh straps. For the other watches this simply isn't possible. Please refer to our campaign page, under the "limited to our first sixty backers" section and you will see that this was clearly stated there. As one of our earlier backers you are given priority with regards to ordering as well as shipping. This is the definitive answer to the question of what will and won't be numbered. We apologise for any inconvenience this caused. Hopefully this answers all your questions.
David
Wait wait wait, are you changing what you said? We were promised our watches would come numbered on the back, even if we chose another than the limited edition. Please stick to your promise! It would be really bad for your reputation if you can't deliver.
Tevin
Hi, @Louise Lovgren We apologise if there was any misunderstanding but if you are part of the first 60 backers, and for whatever reasons you want to choose another watch from our collection which is not the limited edition, it will come according to your number on our backers' list but it won't be numbered at the back as the Rose-gold limited edition. Thanks for reaching out and we hope that clears up any confusion.
Louise Lovgren
Hi when I sent questions earlier about it being numbered or not you replied "but, if for whatever reason you are not interested in the Rose gold watch, you will have the choice to replace it with any other watch of your choice and it will still come numbered according to when you made your pledge" And now you say it won't come numbered? That just doesn't make sense...
Tevin
Hi Catherine!

We won't mistake it for you wanting two Prince watches. As mentioned earlier, we have you as one of our first sixty backers on our list. So we would send you the limited edition watch along with whichever watch you chose as a part of your package.
We trust that this clarifies any confusion.
Catherine
Hi, thanks for your response! Thought I’d put it here here for others in case they have the same query. You mentioned that:
“As a part of the first 60 backers, you just need to confirm your information because you should already be registered as one of the backers getting the Numbered Rose Gold Limited Edition Watch on our backers' list or choose any of the other 5 if you are not interested in the Rose Gold Watch.” — though this would apply if I pledged for 1 watch. So... here’s my follow-up question: Since I pledged for 2 watches — and only the 5 watches appears for me to choose from — if I select only 1 (e.g. Prince), will you guys mistake it as me wanting 2x Prince watches correct ?
Newton
Greetings Louise! Numbering watches is only reserved for the Limited Edition watches. The Spring street watch will not be sent to you numbered. Thanks for reaching out.
Newton
@Hi! Catherine. I just messaged you with information!
Louise Lovgren
So the spring st will still come numbered then?
Catherine
Hi! When choosing from the survey, i’m wondering how I can select the Limited Edition Rose Gold watch? I’m one of the first 60 backers, but only the 5 main watch options show up on my survey.
Tevin
Hi, Louise. Since you are part of our first 60 backs, you get the Limited Edition watch which will come numbered at the back with a special number of when you made your pledge and where you appear on our backers' list. As one of the first 60 backers, you can specify in the survey
If you want to replace your Rose Gold Limited Edition watch with the Spring St. Thank you for reaching out and we hope that answers you questions.
Louise Lovgren
Hi, when choosing the watch in the survey since I'm one of the first 60 backers I can choose between limited, numbered and the different colours. What does it mean by numbered? Does that refer to the limited watch? I'm mostly interested in knowing what to choose to get the gold/pink numbered. (don't remember the name of it I think it's called spring st)
Tevin
Hi, Eric. The website is still in development. We want the best possible user interface as well as something that is visually pleasing. A lot is being considered, discussed and beta run. As soon as we are the satisfied we'll go live. Thanks for reaching out.
Eric
when will your website officially launch?
Newton
Hi, Andres. Our Newton classic collection unisex watches comes with 316L stainless steel cases with a brushed finish that measures 43.0 mm face diameter. Case thickness 7.8mm. These watches feature sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, Japanese Quartz Movement and are water resistant up to 50 meters. At this point, in order to be able to make the January delivery deadline, significant changes to our product are not possible. Thanks for reaching out and we hope we answered your question.
Andres Pedrera
Hi, Guys. I have a question about the project. What is the movement you are planning to put at the core of the watch. For me (I am sure for lot of backers too), the look it is important, but it is also very important you put a good movement inside (the best value for money you can find). I am even willing to pay 5/10 more bucks if that allows installing a much better movement inside ;-)
Newton
Hi, Tom.
Sorry but only first 60 backers qualify for the numbered limited edition.
Thank you for contacting us.
Tom
I just pledged Super early bird and it mentions numbered edition. I guess this means you can have your backer number engraved in it, regardless whether you are one of the first 60 backers or not? Also, can you provide some information on where you want to put the number?
Tevin
Hi, Danish! Yes, that’s correct, you can choose the model you like.
Danish
So if you pledge under super early bird deal, does that mean you're limited to rose gold? I don't wanna get rose gold so I still get option to choose later, right?
Newton
Hi, @Eric. after the Kickstarter campaign ends, you’ll be able to buy straps on our website.
Eric
Another question, how would I go about adding an extra strap to my pledge?
Eric
Yep, that clears everything up, thanks! Looking forward to getting it!
Tevin
Hi @Eric Unfortunately, the Super Early Bird package doesn't include an extra strap. Thank you for contacting us and we hope this answers your question.
Tevin
Hi, @Catherine! Here are the answers to your questions: 1) The extra strap will be a different colour. If you picked the limited edition rose watch, one strap will be the metal roses strap and the extra one will be a different colour. 2) Yes, after the Kickstarter campaign ends, you’ll be able to buy straps on our website.
Eric
Does the super early bird come with an extra strap?
Catherine
Crap, I can't edit so, grammatical fixes:
there is an option*
choosing*
Catherine
Hi, 2 questions:
1) If the extra pre-chosen strap will be the same colour as the chosen watch (i.e. If we pick the limited edition rose watch, the extra strap will be the metal roses strap)?
2) If there an option to buy an extra strap colour of our choose
Newton
@Huy Nguyen great question. I just messaged you with information!
Huy Nguyen
How can I get extra watch straps? I didn't see that option available when I pledged. Thanks.
Tevin
Hi @Catherine We are sorry but it's not possible to choose the colour of the additional strip. In order to allow a smooth delivery of the rewards, we had to decide the colour of the additional strip for each watch in advance. Thanks for reaching out and we hope that answers your question.
Tevin
Hi @David According to the Kickstarter rules and regulations, if you pull out of one of your pledges you'll no longer be backer #51. Backer #52 will move down to backer #51 and so on - Also, backer #61 will become #60 and we'll have to guarantee him/her access to a limited number edition. Thanks for reaching out and we hope that answers your question.
Catherine
Hi! Wondering if we get to choose the colour of our extra leather strap(s)?
David
Thank you Tevin, very helpful! One last question; if I switch to double deal now, will I maintain my number as backer 51?
Tevin
Hi @David With the Super Early Bird package, you can only get your watch numbered according to when you made your pledge and what number you appear on our backers' list, even if you pledged for more than 1 watch. Since you are backer number 51, If you had chosen the double deal both watches would have came numbered the same way, as #51. Thank you for reaching out and we hope that answers your question.
David
Thank you for your reply! My girlfriend and I backed the super early bird separately because it said you would get a numbered edition. If this was the case for the first 60 backers regardless of what deal we chose we would have chosen the double deal to save shipping for two separate orders + get extra straps. Is it possible to change to the double deal and still get both watches numbered?
Newton
Hi @David Ronnenburg and @Louise Lovgen, As part of the first 60 backers, you get the Rose gold (Numbered Limited Edition) watch but, if for whatever reason you are not interested in the Rose gold watch, you will have the choice to replace it with any other watch of your choice and it will still come numbered according to when you made your pledge. For those backers who are part of the first 60 but made a pledge for more than 1 watch, they have the choice to get the Rose gold (Numbered limited Edition) watch and any other watch of their choice but if they do not want the Rose gold watch they have the choice to choose any other watch they want to replace it. Thank you for reaching out and we hope that answers both your questions.
David
Is it correctly understood that we get a limited edition numbered rose gold watch as well as any watch of our choice as one of your first 60 backers?
Louise Lovgren
Hi, For the super early bird, it says you can choose any colour you want but also something about numbered edition. Does that mean you get one watch of your choice + the limited edition watch or one watch of your choice and you have the ability to choose the limited edition if you want or is the watch of your choice made as a limited watch? Or what does it really mean with the super early bird and with the first 60 backers?
Newton
Hi @Nashvind! The numbered watch is the rose gold watch with the black face and the steel mesh strap. Our other rose gold watch is the Spring St watch, with a peach strap. Please let us know if anything else is unclear. Thanks for reaching out!
Nashvind
Hey there. I was wondering if the numbered edition is the rose gold one.
Newton
@Samue hill and @Stephanie please excuse Tevin's atrocious grammar. He'll work hard to make sure no further mistakes are made. Thank you.
Tevin
Hie there Samuel, Thank you for your pledge and support. All of our available kickstarter editions are featured on the collection section of our campaign page.
Tevin
Hie there Stephanie, Thank you for the pledge and support. As one of our first 60 backers, you have the privilege of choosing from any of our watches,including the Numbered limited edition watch as well as the rose gold watch with a black face and metal band.
samue hill
Is there somewhere where I can see the different watches that there are to select from?
Stephanie
I was one of the 60 backers in the super early bird tier. Does that mean I'll get the rose gold watch with black face and metal band?
