In our review of the Fifty Eight Watches Geneva Tribute, we struggled to find any negative points of note. It’s coming to Kickstarter in August.

Coming to Kickstarter – Fifty Eight Watches Geneva Tribute

Fifty Eight Watches launches their first collection Geneva Tribute on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. Starting from £399 (- €460 – $550) for the early bird special, The Geneva Tribute is a Swiss-made automatic wristwatch, a blend of classic aesthetics and technical performance with an exquisite dial design.

 The Geneva Tribute is an affordable range of fresh details and comes in 4 different versions, available both in date and no date version. Ideal for everyday users and collectors alike, with a contemporary size, the high polished 38 mm stainless steel 316L case, has the perfect proportions, flat enough with a thickness of 10.20mm, allowing the watch to slide underneath the wearer’s sleeve, offering great comfort and wearing experience.

Chris Tomozei, co-founder at Fifty Eight Watches explains:” We aspired to create more than a homage to an iconic watch design, we desired to create a homage to the past and present of Swiss watchmaking, so what better way of doing that other than celebrating the heart of the watchmaking, Geneva-Switzerland. Our design codes include the iconic Côtes de Genève decorations, a charming back engraving of St Pierre Cathedral in Geneva, signature sector dial, and a logo that symbolizes the undisputed reign of Swiss watchmaking”

ABOUT FIFTY EIGHT WATCHES

FIFTY EIGHT Watches is the result of a courageous fresh start. The notable combination of Swiss watchmaking and passion for timepieces, transformed into the realization of a new watch microbrand.

Founded by Chris, a watch avid and professional with experience of more than eight years in the watchmaking industry, and Mihaela, experienced in all aspects of business development, coordinating internal operations and the company’s culture. We had the opportunity to learn and work alongside some of the world’s most established manufacturers, learning comprehensively about watches, watchmaking values and their history. Therefore, inspired by this essence of knowledge and countless conversations with watch enthusiasts we started this adventure, expressing our love for watches
