    What is your favorite crowdfunded watch design?

    As the title says, I'm interested in seeing some of the unique beauties that have been designed by individual members. My two favorites have always been the Boston Watch Co. Charles River, and the Carpenter Watch (Black). Unfortunately, the first one never achieved its goal, and the second doesn't appear to be making any progress :(

    None...I see the possibilities to be ripped off, as has been the case with a few such watches.
    Not claiming that the two you mentioned had such plans....Just, too many have done that.
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.

    OK.....I'll play because I did and bought a Lew and Huey Acionna. I never, not for one second felt Chris Vail (President of Lew and Huey) was anything more or less than he said he was. On second thought. He's likely more. He's a smart man, with a very creative mind, who has done something most of us can only dream about. He took a difficult time in his life and decided to make something very positive of it. That determination was the seed that has grown quite nicely. And I get to wear one of his visions on my wrist. Yes I do!

    Co-designer of the Charles River Diver here; we're still hard at work bringing this to market! We hope to have some exciting updates before long. Thanks for including our watch in this!

    I am pretty happy with my Anstead Oceanis from Kickstarter last year. It only took a few months to get and started me on the slippery slope of automatic watches.
