New watch brand Astbury & Kent has designed a range of watches with a tourbillon movement sourced from the Far East.
Founder by Terrence Ray Flores and Tom McCulloch, who have both worked in the watch industry for a number of years.
The pair have described how and why they were inspired to create Astbury & Kent: “We love the idea of people unboxing their new watch and being commented on by friends about their new Astbury and Kent timepiece on their wrist,” they said. “You just cannot beat the new watch feeling!”
The brand has been raising money on Kickstarter and has presented three variations of the Stellaris collection, which is designed by Flores. He says that he was inspired in the design of the collection by colour schemes often found in British luxury vehicles.
The watches come with a two-year warranty and its ‘early bird’ prices start at £1,700 and go up to £2,900.
The brand says that this particular fundraising campaign has met its goal but will officially end on Wednesday 12 June.
