‘The Janus Dial’ combines elegant design, dual-time zone display, Swiss made movements and a lifetime guarantee

The Janus Dial was designed for all of us who feel connected to two separate places at the same time, often home and another special place.

J. Hathaway has elevated the travel category with the launch of The Janus Dial on Kickstarter. Assembled by hand from the finest materials, the limited-edition timepiece arrives in 11 stunning color variations each named after a city visited during the development of the watch.

“We founded J. Hathaway to inspire travelers. We are committed to creating the classic travel essentials you should expect from a luxury brand, but offered at a fair price, and that’s what The Janus Dial delivers,” said J. Hathaway Founder Jason Ravin. “The Janus Dial was designed for all of us who feel connected to two separate places at the same time, often home and another special place. The Janus Dial, fittingly named after the Roman god of time and duality, features a dual-time zone display handcrafted for the modern traveler”.

The Janus Dial features:

  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal
  • Ornate multi-layered dial
  • Dual Swiss made movements for two time zones (home and travel destination)
  • Brown Topaz Swarovski crystals decorating each crown
  • 316L surgical grade stainless steel to ensure durability
  • Milanese Mesh bracelet or a textured Saffiano leather band
  • Signature Janus Dial diamond pattern
  • Hand-stitched leather travel case
  • Wooden chest for daily storage

Ravin, who received his undergraduate degree from Howard University and his postgraduate degree from The London School of Economics, created the distinctive dual-time zone design following his travels to more than 40 countries.

“I’ve always believed travelers were underserved by not having both classically and functionally designed products to choose from, so our company is focused on creating essentials that have both form and function,” Ravin said. “After years of intentional design thinking about the needs of travelers, The Janus Dial is the culmination of our best research and development.”

“The Janus Dial gives you the luxury craftsmanship you should expect from a luxury brand, but at a fair price,” Ravin added. “By bypassing the network of distributors, wholesalers, and retailers that mark up prices, and engaging directly with crowdfunders via Kickstarter, you’re getting a luxury watch at a fraction of the price.”

The Janus Dial is available in 11 color and strap combinations, including The Janus Dial Chicago (gunmetal black strap and face), The Janus Dial Hong Kong (brown strap and silver face), The Janus Dial Cape Town (wine red strap and gold face) and The Janus Dial San Francisco (rose gold strap and face). Each one limited to only 500, and all timepieces are covered by an "industry-disrupting” lifetime warranty.
