Welcome to another roundup of the crowdfunded watches that have caught our eye this month.

Crowdfunded Watch Roundup – June 2020

Two of these watches will be familiar to regular readers…

Audric SeaBorne

First up, we have the AUDRIC SeaBorne. We took a look at this watch earlier this year and it is now live on Kickstarter. We were impressed by its heft and build-quality, and for the price of £481 it represents a very affordable entry into the Swiss watch market.AUDRIC Seaborne Kickstarter Watch

Firle X Sennen Automatic

The Firle X Sennen Automatic is funding now on Indiegogo. It’s a British-designed watch with Swiss innards with a price tag of £450. If you are looking to buy a Swiss watch that is less lucky than the AUDRIC SeaBorne this one might well appeal.

BackFire Automatic Watch

The Backfire is an unusual-looking watch that has already blown away its Kickstarter target. Based on a car suspension system it represents a welcome deviation from the standard watch designs. The £257 price tag will not break the bank, either.

Monsieur Ranomo

Our final crowdfunded watch this week, the Monsieur Ranomo, first came to our attention back in 2019. It’s a quartz chronograph watch with a clean design and packed with motorsport-inspired design features. If you missed it first time around you can now have a second chance to obtain one of these watches.

Buying a Watch on Kickstarter

Remember that Kickstarter is not a shop, it’s a place where you can back new businesses, That means you will have a wait before the watch you preorder arrives, and there is always a risk of losing your money. Don’t let that scare you off – read our guide to buying a watch on Kickstarter to find out more.

IndieGoGo is a little different, in that the product does not always need to meet a minimum level of backing. This can increase risk, but in the case of the two IndieGoGo watches we’ve featured this month, the makes say that they have them in stock – or will do imminently.
