Plan B Edmonton Series

Plan B watch is a dream project by Quentin Trudeau, a marketing expert specialized in high end Swiss luxury watches. To realize his mission, Quentin Trudeau has partnered with talented and renowned watch designer Vikentiy Gryaznov.

Quentin Trudeau has more than 5 years of experience in handling highly expensive watches. After working with sales and marketing departments of some venerated names in the Swiss luxury watch industry, he has decided to create his own watch brand to produce luxurious wristwatches that don’t hurt the budget of customers.
Worked for several high end watch brands, Vikentiy Gryaznov is well known for his involvement in the creation of Lunokhod, a masterpiece watch by Russian master watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin.

Fuelled by his passion, Quentin Trudeau has approached Vikentiy Gryaznov, the leading luxury product designer and alumni of famous Strate School of design in Paris. Together they created a new watch brand to produce timepieces that distinctively stand out among the crowd of contemporary luxury watches.
The love for vintage watches inspired the duo to create the first series christened as Plan B. The Plan B - Edmonton series takes inspiration from the 1950s classic watch designs. The brand has developed three models for the first Plan B series - Edmonton Black, Edmonton Gold and Edmonton Silver – and then contacted a reputable manufacturer specializing on producing watches for the luxury segment. The timepieces from the collection are manufactured by incorporating three fundamental ideas: vintage design, functionality and universality.
The Plan B Edmonton wristwatch has a high grade composite stainless steel case featuring an aerodynamic rounded shape inspired from the designs of classic watches manufactured in France in mid 1950s. Measuring 43mm diameter and 9mm thickness, the watch case has been finished with matte coating, while crown, buttons and strap parts are made of polished steel.
Its highly legible dial boasts applied volume index marks covered with luminous paint and consists of three independent layers, each with its own time unit to show. Watch hands have brushed surface along with outer rings of sunray concentric sub-dials. The domed mineral glass offers both the vintage look and easy reading of dial. The date window at 3o’clock is equipped with a magnifying lens for high visibility.
Equipped with a Swiss made Ronda quartz chronograph movement, the Plan B Edmonton watch proudly displays chronograph functions in addition to the basic timekeeping and date display.
The brand has secured the watch with a dyed canvas and leather strap. A Milanese mesh steel bracelet is also available as a secondary strap. A special tool for easy changing of the straps is also included in the package.
The Kickstarter project to fund the mass production of Plan B Edmonton wristwatch is live now and interested customers can pre-order the timepiece by backing this online campaign. Price starts from 149$.
