Coming to Kickstarter – SOIGNÉ

SOIGNÉ

SOIGNÉ is a Seattle-designed, Swiss made automatic watch brand that is bringing a new watch to Kickstarter on September 6th.

Coming to Kickstarter – SOIGNÉ

The SOIGNÉ watch is a 40mm white-dialled dress watch with heat-blued hands. It’s powered by the ETA 2892.A2 Swiss automatic movement and is presented on full grain vegetable tanned Italian leather straps that are handcrafted in France. They say that every detail of their watch, from the case to the dial and the hands, has been custom-made, unlike some Kickstarter brands which are essentially rebadged Chinese catalogue watches. Notwithstanding the usual marketing bluster that accompanies a Kickstarter launch, this watch uses a quality movement, and the style is at least different from the norm.
