Scott Lancaster of Lancaster Roberts said "Watching the team grow and develop has been something truly special. I couldn't be anymore proud of what we've achieved so far, but there is so much more to come! Launching on Kickstarter really gives us the opportunity to pay back the amazing people who have supported us from the beginning. Allowing our fans to have a Lancaster Roberts on their wrist before they are even available in retail stores".
Co-Founder Robert Ham stated "Our team has exceeded all original expectations, we now have the quality and detail of a world class timepiece, while maintaining an affordable price point. Our watches include the Renata battery (used by Rolex and Tag) and a multi-jeweled premium Swiss movement. Even our presentation cases are inspired by Petak Phillipe & Co, a name synonymous with luxury watches ."
Lancaster Roberts has signed a contract with local engraving experts to provide state-of-the-art laser engraving to uniquely personalize each timepiece. They have also engaged with Revamp Strategies, a premier marketing company in the United States, to assist in developing the worlds understanding of Lancaster Roberts unique approach to design and customer service.
The LR team is scheduled to travel to Switzerland to meet with supply partner RONDA to discuss future developments of a Swiss made Automatic model just in time for Christmas 2015.
