#1: CASE DESIGN
The first step was to decide on the case design. Below are the four options the Club members have voted and the results. If you want to see the cases in 3D and AR just click on them (only works with iphone), or if you want to see more pictures just go to the watch case page.
#2: CASE UPGRADE
Members have chosen the case M3, and have made suggestions to modify it, so we came up with 6 new variations:
CASE END piece
The variation number 3 was the one selected, and we have two options for the case end piece. Which one should we produce?
Let's select the dial we will produce for your watch. Should we do a standard display? Or use DWISS signature display? Or create a whole new thing? Note that only one dial will be produced. We first need to choose which direction to go, and in a second step we will opt for the design (details) and colors.
dial 1: STANDARD displayS
Skeleton dial with standard displays and two options for the date: standard date and date ring with a red dot to indicate the date
dial 2: signature display
DWISS signature display with rotating discs to show the hours and the minutes. Two options for the date: standard date and date ring with a red dot to indicate the date
dial 3: displaced display
NEW display system with displaced hours and minutes. Multi-layered dial showing only the end of the hands that indicate the minutes and hours. Three options for the date: no date, standard date and date ring with a red dot to indicate the date
#3.2: DIAL DESIGN (displaced display)

IS IT like crowdfunding?
No... As a DWISS Club member, you are REALLY part of the creation of the watch you will receive, and you do not need to pay 100% of the watch’s price all at once.
IS IT like a box subscription?
Again no. We do not send random watches over the subscription period. The watch you will receive will be the one you are helping to create, with its good value for the money!
CAN I CANCEL MY membership?
You can cancel your membership at any time with no cancellation fees or penalties and use your credit (already paid monthly fees) to purchase any other watch (with the same retail value) in our collection.
