LENVINO Watch Co. was started in 2017 Jan, a group of watch-addicts with the passion and constancy of the traditional watch craftsmanship. They believe that the most timeless and desirable timepiece must be the traditional one. They would like to awaken people’s mind about the core function of a watch, thus create our brands.
In 2017 Dec LENVINO Watch Co. launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the World’s First Minimalist Design Rectangular Tourbillon Watch. After 40 days on Kickstarter, it raised a total of HK$ 427,860. The result is the most backed tourbillon project on Kickstarter history.
With the success of the first model, LENVINO Watch Co. returns to Kickstarter to introduce the new brand for you “LECRONOS”
“LECRONOS” is inspired by the word of ‘chronometer’, meaning high accuracy and precision. They strive to create authentic timepieces by combining traditional watch craftsmanship and vintage-inspired design concept. Through “LECRONOS”, they are offering high-quality products with unique and exclusive designs comparable to watches at department stores and luxury brands, but at only a fraction of their retail price.
Since they have a huge passion on vintage cars, they curated the ‘Race for Vintage’ collection. Every detail in our racing watch is a nod to the features of classic sports cars. The vintage tachometer featured a dial design at its core, equipped with a reputable Japanese Seiko NH 35A automatic watch movement with a 40-hour power reserve and accuracy of +/- 20 to 40 seconds a day. Besides, they used an innovative approach to differentiate both the hour-hand and minute-hand. They also offer interchangeable racing style Italian calf leather strap and Milanese strap. The selling price is starting in USD 149 and offered many discounted packages for you to choose. The first 100 pieces of each design will be Limited Edition and individually numbered. The watches will come engraved with “N゜XXX/100” wording on the caseback.
The dial finds inspiration in the tachometer of the 70s-80s vintage sports car. To differentiate the design from huge fashion watches that are going out in same, they stripped away all unnecessary elements from the dial, focusing exclusively on the crystal design. The dashboard featured dial design is printed on the inner side of the sapphire crystal.
For the purpose to let the user can read the time (Hour and minute) clearly, they had made a creative approach to the time display. For the normal human behavior, people reading the time will look at the outer part of the watch and find the hour then the minute. They printed the outer side to be hours mark and the inter side is minutes and also indicated by two colored hands. The red one is indicated the minutes and the white one is hours. To improve the motion of the dial, they designed a dice for indicating the seconds.
The “Race for Vintage” collection equipped with a 43mm 316L stainless steel circular case with the curved bezel. The case is enclosed by a single curve sapphire crystal that is known for its excellent scratch-resistant on the front and a screw-down transparent caseback with vintage car wheel’s rim design prints pattern from the rear, allowing you to enjoy every movement of the laser brand marked movement rotor and balance wheel motion.
The “Race for Vintage” collection range comes in 6 color combinations, with the chance to choose the case and strap colors as the campaign concludes. Dial variations include (1) dark grey and silver, (2) black and silver, (3) all black, (4) dark grey and khaki, (5) light grey and silver, (6) black with gold
Our Racing style interchangeable watch straps are made from genuine Italian calf leather. The strap design is inspired by the racing gloves and punched with patterned holes for styling and cooling. Itcontains a quick release spring bar, so that the straps can be swapped in seconds without the need for special tools.
