Enjoy beautiful watches that are both functional and affordable with the William L. 1985 Luxury Smart and Automatic Watches. Combining French design and Japanese technology, the William L. 1985 luxury watches include a Smartwatch, Chrono Smartwatch, and Automatic Chronograph. The William L. 1985 smartwatch comes with many useful features, such as notifications, activity tracking and remote shutter. It also offers 18-month autonomy and even comes with a Find My Phone feature. The William L.1985 Chrono Smartwatches still present the classic watch look but with many more smart features. Lastly, the Automatic Chronograph combines the brand’s Vintage Style Chronograph with the Seiko NE88A automatic chronograph movement. Additionally, you can create your own combination by choosing the case, strap and buckle of your watch. The watches are available with an IP black or IP rose gold case. Likewise, the choice of straps includes leather, metal, mesh, fabric or silicone.

Way to many smart watches on the market and why reinvent the wheel with no real improvement? would like to see a designer looking smart watch with lower cost! which is already being done in other countries!

Gadget Flow Editors

Thanks for your feedback. So, you mean to say that you look forward to more smartwatches with a digital screen instead of the mechanical clock movement?

Hello Guillaume,
thanks for your sign, that the organizers are still alive.
Perhaps you can schedule a short status info here under comments once a week even if there is no reason for a real update in the future?
I'm sure, this would give any backer a better feeling ...
Regards
Volker

Dear Volker,
Sorry for the late feedbacks we are still waiting a few informations from our suppliers as we have received the last choices from backers later than expected.
But no worries production has started we have ordered the components.
You can check our last campaign everyone has been delivered ;-)
We are working on the News with all the informations.
Cheers

Again three weeks since the last comment. "Next week" is two weeks ago.
I have to say, that this is my first kickstarter campaign, where I fear, that I'll never see anything for my money.
It's definitely the campaign with the worst communication from the organizers ever.

Hi Volker,
We are working on it, next week we will have a better view of the production Timeframe and maybe a good news for the Automatic Chrono and an upgraded movement for the smartwatch ;-)
We get back to all of you asap

Now its two month after the end of the campaign. Would be nice to get an update.
Is there perhaps a new timeframe for the auto chrono?

I have attempted to update the comments section to no date on my survey, I get a response stating that it was updated but it does not show when I review my responses. Was my response received?
Sarah Bricogne
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Volker,
First of all, thank you very much for your support.
The no date option has to be mentioned in 'other remarks' indeed.
Good job! ;)

There was no question about "date" or "no date" option, therefore I answered this under "other remarks". Hope this is right?

Hello Etienne,
En effet, il n'est pas possible sur nos modèles milanais de poser une boucle déployante. Ceux-ci étant déjà montés avec fermoir cliquet comme vous l'aviez bien fait remarquer dans votre premier message.
Navrée pour cette petite confusion.
Bien à vous
Sarah
Etienne
Review from Kickstarter
Tout d’abord, merci de m’avoir répondu. Je souhaiterais que vous m’apporter une précision à votre réponse. Au départ, j’avais rajouter 10€ pour la maille milanaise et 20€ pour la boucle déployante afin de les associer tous les deux. Si cette opération est possible : je changerai les réponses de mon questionnaire en conséquence en retirant le bracelet en cuir. Si ça n’est simplement pas possible ou inutile, je ferai comme précisé dans votre première réponse et vous virerai 10€ via PayPal. En résumé, est-ce que cette association est impossible/inutile ? Cordialement. Etienne

Review from Kickstarter
Hello Etienne,
Tout d'abord un grand merci pour votre contribution à notre projet ! :) Pour répondre à votre question, il vous faut ajouter 10€ à votre budget de 169€ pour obtenir les options souhaitées. La montre (139€) en remplaçant par le bracelet milanais (10€), le bracelet additionnel en cuir (10€) sur boucle déployante (20€). Tout est ok sur le formulaire. Il faudra juste nous virer les 10€ supplémentaires à l'adresse suivante sur Paypal : guillaume.laidet@gl-watches.com
Merci à vous
Sarah de l'équipe William L.

Review from Kickstarter
Bonjour, Pouvez-vous confirmer que j'ai bien compris les items de votre questionnaire ? J'ai rajouté 30€ sur la récompense "1 CHRONO SMARTWATCH - SUPER EARLY BIRD (139 €)".
J'ai choisi un bracelet en cuir (j'ai coché le bracelet en cuir lisse noir) et un bracelet Maille milanaise noir (10€).
Puis j'ai coché la boucle Ardillon classique pour le bracelet en cuir (pour n'ajouter aucun frais supplémentaire) et une boucle déployante (20€) pour le bracelet en maille Milanaise.
Me confirmez-vous bien que ces choix atteignent l'engagement de 169€ émit ? Il est précisé d'ailleurs sur le bracelet Maille Milanaise qu'il est à "fermoir cliquet".
Or, comme dit plus haut, j'ai choisi une boucle déployante pour l'associer à la Maille Milanaise.
Pouvez-vous me dire si les deux fermoirs sont différents et, s'il s'avérait que c'était le même, pourrais-je dans ce cas l'associer au bracelet en cuir ? Dans l'attente de votre réponse. Cordialement. Etienne

The three-piece links strap is the same thing as the solid bracelet. No problem then ;)
Have a great day!

Review from Kickstarter
The video of the automatic chronograph shows the beauty of the finish, colors, textures of both the watch and the strap. When I look at the charts for choosing my watch I can't be sure I am making the right choice. I have looked using 3 different video monitors, detail is lacking. Is there any way to improve the photos on the charts?
John Yanko
Review from Kickstarter
When do we choose colors, for face and straps and add the clasp?

Hello, If i want to add or swap for a three-link strap how much should i add (US Dollar)? Not sure if it is the same thing as the solid bracelet option?

Bonjour Patrick,
Il est vrai que nous avons manqué de temps. Les prochaines seront en anglais et en français je vous l'assure :)
Bonne journée et merci encore pour votre soutien

Review from Kickstarter
Bonjour,
J'ai participé en confiance au financement de cette très jolie montre. Mais je suis inquiet de voir que toute la communication se fait en anglais. Il me semble qu'une traduction en français, notamment du dernier mail reçu traitant des différentes options serait la bienvenue. Meme si google Traduction est un outil efficace, il serai dommage qu'une entreprise d'origine française ne communique qu'en anglais. Bien à vous. Patrick, acheteur français.

Hi Peter,
The smartwatch and chrono smartwatch have almost the same functionalities.
The only difference is that the chrono smartwatch has the performance and date indicator on the dial.
The app is already fully developed, tested and available as you can see in the video below it is working
https://www.youtube.com/watch…
We will only customize the layout with our brand identity and logo
Cheers
Guillaume

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I have recently backed another hybrid smart watch project and have some bad experience with them, so a few questions: Is there a functionality difference between smart watch and chrono smart watch? Is the phone application and watch firmware already fully complete and alpha testing or even beta testing done? If not, is it planned to finish before end of the campaign? Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
Will there be an option for a gold clasp or buckle to match with certain watches?
Guillaume Laidet
Review from Kickstarter
Hi
It seems that Sarah answered with my profil on the last three comments ;-) Concerning the blue dial for the smartwatches we also wanted to do it.
But we have made some test during the prototypes phase.
And honestly the results were not really good. It is because of the dial raw material utilized for the smartwatches that is not the same we use for regular quartz or mechanical watches. Have a nice weekend

Is there the possibility of a blue dial instead of a black one for the chrono smartwatch?

@Jayce Merci pour votre message et votre soutien.
Pour le moment, pas de version bleue pour la Chrono Smartwatch mais si suffisamment de personnes la réclament, nous y réfléchirons ;)
Bonne journée

Review from Kickstarter
Bonjour, Félicitations, je suis ravi que l’objectif ait été atteint. My question is: for the sake of consistency, do you plan on changing the orthography of either TÉLÉMÈTRE or AUTOMATIC so that both words are either in French or English — I would prefer French... Thanks!
Jayce
Review from Kickstarter
Bonjour Guillaume,
Félicitation pour le projet, j'ai vraiment hâte que le financement se termine pour pouvoir compter les jours avant reception.
J'ai une question : Sur la Chrono Smart, serait-il possible de la faire avec le fond bleu, comme sur la Automatic ? Elle a l'air vraiment chouette. Bonne journée

Hi Tom
We are still checking the possibility for the black date wheel
We will update you once we get the news
The bracelet clasp is stamped but the sheet is really resistant
