What makes the Saltire Collection so special?

The Saltire Collection was designed in an effort to integrate elements of Scottish culture into a beautifully crafted timepiece.

01.
The collection is named after the Scottish National Flag - The Saltire
  • The Saltire consists of a St. Andrew’s Cross on a blue background.

  • Each watch in the Saltire Collection has subtle representations of the cross.

Hand Painted Dials' Details

Ethereal St. Andrew's cross effect is hand-painted over blue enamel and dark blue aventurine:

  • The cross is subtle.

  • You see it only when looking closely at the dial.

  • For Northern Lights we go one step further and paint the effect of the Arora Borealis over the St. Andrew’s Cross.

  • A thistle, The flower of Scotland, is the Scottish emblem.

  • You can find it growing on Scottish hills and glens.

Two years ago two "well-aged" Scottish horologists Tomek Borkowy and Colin Graham decided to create a watch company. We are friends who love Scotland and are crazy about watches.  Our dream is to create quality watches dedicated to the history and culture of Scotland.  We don’t want to make tourist tat, but design and produce short runs of unique themed mechanical art.

Thistle Filled In RGB.png

Similar to many crowdfunding campaigns, we are raising funds directly from our supporters to fund the manufacturing of our product.  For the pre-millennial generation this is still an unfamiliar way of raising money.  This is how it will work: It is similar to any crowdfunding campaign for a charitable cause, but this one is to finance the production of a unique short run watch collection.

You reserve a watch before it is produced.  We collect money from our supporters until we hit our fundraising target which then allows us to start manufacturing.  You will be kept informed of the progress.

All orders will be fully refundable up until the point where manufacturing starts, whereby you will be notified by email. Reach out to hello@scotlandwatchco.scot with any questions about refunds.

How I can be sure that my money is safe?

Your money will be held in our “Client” account until we hit our minimum fundraising target and announce the start of production.  Up to this point, if you change your mind, you can ask for your money back and this will be returned to you within two working days. If you have any questions, please write to hello@scotlandwatchco.scot.

We considered using Kickstarter, however we decided against it for a number of reasons. Firstly, we are only doing a very short-run of the Saltire collection and therefore we would like to host the fundraiser privately (on our own website) together with our closest supporters.

Additionally, after doing some research we realise that not all early supporters want to wait until a certain date for fundraising to start in order to secure their watch.  So, we decided to give the option to those who believe in our product and want to receive a larger Early-Early Bird discount as well as having the opportunity to choose a specific limited-run number for the watch they have chosen.  Also, the fundraising platforms put a time limit on fundraising, which we didn’t want to be restricted by.

Yes, we’ll be shipping globally.

We will begin the manufacturing process immediately after we reach our fundraising target. We believe production lead times will be 3-4 months and roughly another month or so for logistics and shipping.  

We will prioritise delivery of the watches to our earliest supporters, in order of date of payment, as they showed their commitment early and have been with us from the very beginning.

We will do our best to produce watches as fast as possible after we hit our fundraising target.  However, the intricate details and unique design of the Saltire Collection means that each watch will take time to produce. We will be moulding the case, dial, hands, and indexes from scratch; elements of all dials will be hand painted and hand finished; the movements will be imported from the Seiko factory in Japan and the Super-Luminova will be imported from Switzerland.  In order to ensure the highest-quality product, we cannot rush the process.

How do I know about progress of the fundraising, and process of production?

On the second week of fundraising we will add a graph to this page with weekly advancement of our fundraising.  You can also follow us on Instagram and check our Facebook.  After reaching our fundraising target we will announce the start of production and inform you of progress.  As always, you can contact us on  hello@scotlandwatchco.scot

Sign up to the email-list and within the next two days you will receive the first of a string of emails we will send you, diving deeper into who we are and the Saltire Collection. If something doesn’t look right, or you did not receive the email right away, write to hello@scotlandwatchco.scot and we will be happy to help.

After signing up to our email-list, you will receive our first email. Throughout the emails, we will be revealing information about the fundraiser. Once piece of information that is quite important is that the first 100 supporters of the “Very Early-Birds” will receive a massive 25% discount on their watch.. The next 60 “Early-Birds” will receive a 15% discount.  All other supporters will receive a 10% discount.  All our supporters will be given two additional straps. If you choose to order now you will receive not only a substantial discount but will also have the option to choose the unique number of the watch you have selected. If you need any help, please write to hello@scotlandwatchco.scot.

All “Early-Early-Bird” and “Early-Bird” supporters will be able to personalise their watch by requesting the number of their choice (1-160/5?) of each variation. This can be done at checkout. When you purchase the watch, you will be able to select from a list of remaining numbers for each of the variations. This selection process will be done on a “first come first serve” basis. If your number has already been selected, you will have to choose another number.
