We’re excited to reach this milestone on Kickstarter and know these early adopters will love the sophisticated design and technology afforded by these Niklaas Fritz timepieces.

Backers looking for the newest watches that couple modern tech and minimalist design have pushed presales of the new Niklaas Fritz watch collection past $26,000 – breaking the initial campaign goal set on Kickstarter in less than 48 hours.

“We’re excited to reach this milestone on Kickstarter and know these early adopters will love the sophisticated design and technology afforded by these timepieces,” said company co-founder Nicholas Meehan.

Meehan, whose great-grandfather was also a watchmaker, says the new Niklaas Fritz Collection will also allow the team to both “continue the family tradition and our vision for the future.”

Niklaas Fritz unisex timepieces feature a modern yet classic, minimalist design and “offer value without comparison in their category,” he said.

Unlike other leading watch competitors, which draw complaints for their product quality and customer service, the Niklaas Fritz Collection has been developed using the best quality materials – sapphire crystal, full grain leather, stainless steel – at fair prices. The company also offers a two-year guarantee and exceptional customer service to ensure that owners of their watches are satisfied well beyond the immediate purchase.

“Our supporters are not only purchasing a watch, but an opportunity to fully experience their lifestyle with our timepieces,” said Niklaas Fritz Co-founder Juan Pablo Zambrano.

Niklaas Fritz offers three categories of watches. The Chambra and Coco options have Japan Miyota GL20 movements and a stainless steel case, 316L of 0.39mm. The Emes line of watches have a Japan Miyota 6S11 movements and stainless steel cases, 316L of 0.44mm.

Every watch also has exchangeable straps in full-grain leather and stainless steel with finishing in silver and pink gold.

The duo behind Niklaas Fritz watches puts an emphasis on three words: Classic. Authentic. Adventure. Each of the three types of Niklaas Fritz watches represent each concept based on the unique design features of the Chambra, Coco and Emes.

Niklaas Fritz watches all include:

  • Sapphire crystal, which is scratch-resistant and scores 9 out of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, so it’s very difficult to break
  • Full grain leather straps so it’s real leather; this is superior to genuine leather which most competitors use
  • Straps which are interchangeable on all watches
  • 5ATM water resistance, so it stands up to showering, swimming, snorkeling, shallow diving and rain as well as water sports
