Hello dear community
I'm a brand new user, and first of all, I apologize in advance if somebody asked those questions already. I searched in the forum but I couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for.
I want to create a new watch brand, that would be a swatch-like (so all plastic, but high quality), and I don't really know where to start for manufacturing. I tried to contact suppliers on Alibaba, but they are asking for expensive shipping fees for samples (and I want quality)
Basically, I would like to be in touch with plastic-watch-producers (preferably in Europe) to be able to compare, pick one and understand what I need to provide to start working with it.
I have several questions, not necessarily in the right order, and I would be very grateful if you could help with my project:
- Do you know any good watch-manufacturer (in Europe or somewhere else) that would be able to produce high-quality plastic watches? I would like to personalize everything for each model (dial, hands, strap...)
- Do you know what type of files/info I would need to provide?
- I already have a designer: where could I find watch-templates to start working on the design?
- How is the relation with the supplier normally? I give the infos, it produces and ships, and that's it? Or are there other things I should think about
- Can I personalize everything on the watch, or do you think that some parts could really increase the producing price?
Thanks a lot in advance!
