TiMe22 Robusto Titanium Watch

It is now the TiMe2 welcome an all titanium watch into the ever-growing micro-brand watch world. For the lovers of rugged sports watches, the Netherlands based watch brand TiMe22 has recently launched a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to fund the production of Robusto, a series of timepieces made from grade 5 titanium. Designed to be long lasting and scratch-proof, TiMe22 Robusto is available in self-winding and battery powered Quartz movement versions.
The TiMe22 brand was established by Dutch engineers Stefan Wessels and Marc Schot. Back in 2015, Stefan and Marc came up with the concept of a reliable, rugged wristwatch that could withstand extreme conditions. They later transformed their idea into a scratch-proof titanium watch, creating a stronger and cheaper alternative to titanium watches from high end brands with similar specifications.
Each Robusto watch features a solid case crafted in grade 5 titanium. Weighing less than 130 grams, the case measures 45mm x 10mm thick.  It is tested for a water resistance up to 200 meters. A 24mm titanium bracelet secures the watch on the wrist.
Each watch uses Swiss Superluminova™ lumed dial and hands to enhance visibility during dark conditions. The Robusto collection comprises of two models: The TiMe22 Robusto Precision and TiMe22 Robusto Automatic. The Precision features a Swiss ETA Normflatline 955.112 Quartz movement and the Automatic features a Swiss ETA Mecaline 2824-2 Self-winding movement.
TiMe22 has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise €39,500 Euros to fund the mass production of the Robusto watch collection. During the campaign the backers can pre-order the timepieces in a discounted rate with prices starting from a €359 for Precision model and €489 for Automatic version. Delivery of the watches is planned in this Christmas season.
All Robusto watches are designed and engineered in the Netherlands and come with a lifetime guarantee.
