Just paid a visit to the Nardi website & have placed my order - now the savings are £400+ lighter (not really what I expected when I woke up this morning). I tried to get one with the metal bracelet but these were all gone so I ended up going for the basic deal (watch + 1 tan leather strap), lug width is 22mm so there are loads of strap's that'll fit. Anyway I'll let you know when it lands (or docks) - have to say that I'm very excited about this one & hoping that it arrives soon :clap::clap: 

What mm is it?

If you paid by credit card, you can claim a refund from the card provider, because you didn't receive what you paid for.  If you paid by Paypal you should also be able to claim, for the same reason.  If you paid by bank transfer or Western Union, you are screwed.  That's my understanding anyway.

If this watch never gets made and people lose money then I’ll be removing this section of the forum. 
I didn’t know that if watches are not completed then there is no protection for the buyers. It’s open to fraud and I do not want to be promoting this.

It seems there is some sort of protection from kickstarter:

Maybe worth a read.

 

We established the all-or-nothing model when we launched in 2009 as a measure to protect creators, and to minimize risk for everyone. By not releasing funds unless a project meets its goal, this ensures that creators have enough money to do what they promised and they’re not expected to complete a project without the funds necessary to do so. This also assures backers that they’re only funding creative ideas that are set to succeed.

We’ve seen that having a goal to rally around creates a sense of urgency—it gets early backers personally invested in bringing on more supporters, and it makes every backer part of a community crossing the finish line together. 

Setting a goal and not charging backers unless the project reaches that goal also makes the process democratic. Backers have to come together to raise the amount the creator really needs.


How creators control all-or-nothing funding

Creators are responsible for setting their own financial goal and their fundraising deadline. A campaign can run for just one day or up to 60, but we tend to see 30 days works best—it makes support feel timely. Once a creator launches their project, the funding goal and deadline are locked in. 

For technical reasons, we are not able to pause campaigns. But if a creator decides now is not the time for their project, they have the ability to cancel and relaunch at a later date. This is a common practice that can make sense for lots of different scenarios. If you decide to go this route, you will need to get your original backers on board again, but Kickstarter does not penalize relaunched projects in any way. There’s no shame in needing a reset.


Clear, transparent communication is key

In some cases, creators will run into challenges and have to make changes to what they first promised their backers. It’s why we say that backing projects is different to making a purchase. There is inherent risk in the creative process, and things don’t always go as planned. 

When that happens, creators must communicate changes and delays on their project pages and in project updates. We also expect them to follow our rules for honest and clear presentation


Kickstarter is exclusively for creative work, but clarify how paying yourself and supporting your community fits in to your project

There are projects that will be unsuitable for Kickstarter and won’t be permitted to launch. For example, you can’t create a campaign solely to raise money for yourself or for a charity. A project must be producing an original creative work that a creator can share with their backers in some way.

That being said, it’s crucially important that creators factor a salary for themselves into their project budgets. This allows them to sustain their work and avoid burnout, and we believe creative labor deserves a fair wage. Many of your supporters are likely to feel the same. Feel free to add messaging to your page explaining how your project is a job for you, and how additional funding can help you do it better and strengthen your long-term creative practice.

And know that there is room for nonprofits here as well. Charities can run campaigns to realize creative projects. A campaign can also donate some products (but not money) to charities and pay you for your work. Thinking about how your Kickstarter project can support your community and your own well-being is important and very much allowed.

It's not your problem Roy, kickstarter is a gamble... if it comes good I have a unique watch that "brands" would be asking four figures for.

Win some, lose some... I've had great kickstarter watches!

This can’t be right can it?  I never knew that they could just post a video and some cgi images, take peoples money and then not make it. I’ve always been wary of kickstarters but for some reason I thought that the customers were protected in some way.

I agree, no it can’t!

Obtaining money under false pretences is ‘Fraud’, therefore a criminal offence.

I would be contacting trading standards, Police, along with contacting you own MP (if the idle s** is awake?).

Do not let anyone p**s on your boots, Sir!
