Why/Not Kickstarter?

Why/Not Kickstarter?

Hi Collectors! We are on target to launch UBIQ Watches DUAL SERIES 01 on Kickstarter on the 1st of February. I understand there are hesitations for projects on KS, but it is a good tool for a new brand like us to reach more potential supporters. I'm sharing some background about myself today for what its worth. I will answer any questions in the comments as well.

I'm Drayson Phua from Singapore. I have been in the design industry for over 20 years and started That Design Agency in 2012. In 2023, I had the opportunity to meet local microbrand owners through a watch show, and that began my journey to create UBIQ. I finally found the drive to combine my love for watches with my design sensibilities to create something enduring and tangible in this digital age.

My stylistic inspirations come from vintage pieces for their wearabilty and timelessness. My son's colourful world was the catalyst for vibrancy in our designs. Hailing from a tropical island, it's summer all year round. We hope to transcend seasonal phases associated with watches with our timepieces.

UBIQ has been a 1-man show thus far, but we are tapping on an established microbrand for their expertise on fulfillment, warranty and repair knowledge to ensure a solid foundation.

DUAL will be up for preorder on www.ubiqwatches.com after the KS campaign ends. Remaining stocks will be on our site after delivery to pledgers. As these things go, prices get higher later, but we will try to manage that.

We hope this gives you some insight on where we started and where we are heading. Thank you!
