Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the inventive project from roughly $1134 or £840 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 30% off the final retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way.
“The 1545-01 pays definitely tribute to the Swiss Air Force. The “ejection seat” logo is the symbol you can find on fighter jets. And I decided to use this symbol for my watch. As a graphic designer I have always found this symbol to be very strong and special. It was the first element I put on the dial when I started creating. That’s why this symbol is big on the dial.”
With the assumption that the Swiss 1545-01 crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around April 2022.
