LIV is beating all Kickstarter records for a Swiss watch. We’re driven by three words: “Dare to LIV.” Our micro brand of Swiss watches based out of Miami does just that. We work every day to construct watches from tough materials, using unique, bold designs, and make them available directly to consumers at an accessible price.

Since we launched the LIV GX1 Swiss Chronograph on Kickstarter in 2014, our daring concept has appealed to thousands of people. More recently, our 1.1-million-dollar GX1-A Swiss Automatic Kickstarter project is proof of the demand for change in the way Swiss watches are made and brought to market.

While that campaign inspired us to continue our quest, we were ready to leave the comfortable structure of round watches, and dive into the unknown. Indeed, we were hungry for something different, something that stands out….

And here we are today, proud to introduce “The Rebel.” And the name says it all.

While it’s different from anything we’ve done before, it still stays true to what we represent. It’s unique in that it's not round and features an innovative, rectangular stadium-designed face with a round dial, and case with some amazing edges that are curved for comfort.

Like all LIV watches, the Rebel is made of top-of-the-line materials, in the tradition of fine Swiss watchmaking: The case is machined out of a single piece of 316L stainless steel. It has genuine sapphire crystal that’s scratch resistant with anti-reflective coating. And it has our signature eye-popping, three-dimensional, multi-layered dial with BGW9 luminescence that brings time to life.

Each Rebel watch is a Swiss Made Limited Edition timepiece and comes with a Limited Edition Certificate. The Limited Edition number (in addition to the unique serial number) is engraved on the caseback. Each model is available in a range of color options, with a choice of several straps, as well as metal bracelets with butterfly clasps and deployant buckles.

The LIV Rebel is currently available at early-bird pricing ($259 USD to $790 USD) on Kickstarter until March 30th. It’s been only two weeks, and we’ve raised over $900,000, surpassing all Kickstarter records for a Swiss watch. The project was fully funded within nine minutes (!) and raised over half a million dollars in its first forty hours.

The LIV Rebel is available in automatic and quartz options. At under 800 USD, we’re offering the LIV Rebel-AC (Sellita SW500 Swiss Automatic Chronograph) at an incredible price point for a limited edition Swiss Made automatic chronograph with curved sapphire crystal front and skeleton back. Other LIV Rebel options include: The LIV Rebel-A (Sellita SW200-1 Swiss Automatic), the LIV Rebel-DDC (Ronda Z60 Swiss Quartz Chronograph), and the LIV Rebel-GMT (Ronda PowerTech Cal.515.24H Swiss Quartz 24 Hours / GMT + Dual Time).

We offer free worldwide shipping, a five-year warranty backed by real service and a 90-day return policy (unheard of on Kickstarter). To secure your limited edition LIV Rebel watch at early-bird pricing, check out our live campaign on Kickstarter.

    Bold designs, the 6-9-12 layout is still an eyesore.

  • SuperStrapper

    What are the dial materials? They look to be manufactured well, but in some of the colours they look like plastics/composites.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you, they are manufactured well, and they look even better in real life. They are brass.

      • SuperStrapper

        what is the colour? An enamel?

        • LIV – Swiss Watches

          We’re using an enamel on the case and on some parts of the dial.

  • I dig them. A rather unique departure from most Kickstarter offerings, with reasonable pricing. Maybe the second iteration will feature a blue-dial dual-register chrono in a similar color scheme without the Roman numeral for “54” on the dial. I know you were going for “Live” but that’s not how it scans. The elliptical logo is great, the name is terrible. It sounds a company that makes organic protein bars.

    And for this reason, I’m out.

  • Mark1884

    I like them! Interesting designed case, like the blue dial. Seems like a fun watch.
    Bremont: take a lesson on pricing from them.

      Thanks, we appreciate your comment!!!

  • Beefalope

    This makes me want to throw things and hurt people.

    Reminded of the TRON movie

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      LOL, which part?

  • TrevorXM

    I’m amazed by the numbers thrown around in this ad. Clearly this company has figured out a way to crack the big problem that hinders Kickstarter efforts of any kind: publicity. I don’t think much of these watches, but I am impressed by their marketing skills to get them in front of a wide enough audience that they can find the buyers to make them a success.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you, we appreciate your comment.

    “More recently, our 1.1-million-dollar GX1-A Swiss Automatic Kickstarter

    made and brought to market.”

    FULL STOP

    please tell me what’s unique about someone coming up with a design and then farming it out to manufacturers so it can then be sold online and at trade shows?

    I think only a DIQ would be making that claim

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you for your feedback. To clarify, we only sell our product online; we do not sell at trade shows. It is unusual for a watch project to do so well on Kickstarter, and we know that there are multiple reasons that we have succeeded: because we’re offering a great product at very fair price and because we work so hard to have a strong, personal connection with our fans. These reasons are also what set us apart from other brands. When we say “in the way Swiss watches are made,” we mean that we are changing the process in bringing new collections to market, via crowdfunding, directly to the consumer. People initially funded us because they saw the value in what we were offering. Many of our fans own more than one LIV because they saw the quality and love the direct brand connection. You can read reviews (on our GX1 and collection) and the service we provide on Amazon -https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UVVPD3C/ref=pe_1098610_137716200_cm_rv_eml_rv0_dp – there are also more reviews on our website.

      • Yojimbo

        Okay clearly you guys autofellate on the regular over there.

        Microbrands selling only online and crowdfunding new models is nothing new don’t be so pigheaded as to pretend it is. You sell on Amazon, gadzooks that blows me away!

        You know I can’t seem to find anything on watchuseek and I’ve never seen your watch mentioned on other forums, but oh gosh golly you have some great Amazon reviews, totally the most reputable source of information for watch buyers.

  • Shawn Lavigne

    i like it.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you!!

  • BRIAN

    Like the watch not so much the name. What kind of watch you have on? A LIV, WHAT? You guys were trying way too hard with the marketing on that one.

    It is a low cost watch that is full of creativity. Great idea and I can care less where or how you sell it. RM would charge $90k for the same that.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Glad you appreciate our watches even though you’re not into our name :).

  • Ross Diljohn

    I like the look of the watch. It’s different and I suppose appealing to a more youthful demographic. Good luck to you.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you, we appreciate your compliment and best wishes!!

  • egznyc

    Looks like a very good deal in terms of materials and construction, but just isn’t my style. I’m just a little too geriatric for this. it’s just too aggressive and modern for me (though there are modern designs I love, this one is just a little too busy).

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thanks for the compliment regarding the materials and construction, and we appreciate that not every style suits every person :).

  • Torben Pedersen

    OK, you got publicity – I’ll give you that. First step to sell something.
    However…
    I saw your video, your sales pitch. It told me next to nothing. “We have a unique design, personal involvement, made in Switzerland…” etc.
    Somehow I completely fail to see what makes your watches unique. The design looks like a pumped up Swatch-watch, the models I’ve seen (GMT, three-hand, chronograph) are all marked standard.
    Apart from you enthusiasm in your own product, could you kindly try to be a bit objective, and tell me what makes your product stand out from hundreds of other brands out there?
    And – like others commented too; the slogan “dare to liv” sounds more like a dyslexia problem” – sorry to say.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thanks for the compliment!
      We have a very unique design, quality materials and construction, available at an extremely accessible price. That is unique.

  • …S…

    With so many micro-brands today you just get an onslaught of “homages” that in truth could be sold as poor man replicas at best. Often times when you do see some creativity, you get extra large offerings so absurd they would make the folks at Invicta blush. Which is why I am happy to see that one again LIV has dared to be different and while clearly inspired by some classic looks, they put forth an offering that is both good looking and fresh but with a classic feel.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you so much for being so on point about who we are. Thank you for articulating our brand DNA, so well said.

  • Elijs Dima

    Better than I expected. The black-dialled threehand automatic (with the black case & orange lines) actually looks pretty cool.

    Large watch, all in all, but quite appealing as an alternative to Sevenfriday et al.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you, we appreciate it!!!

  • goju1

    All good except for the dayglo orange on the case – for my tastes. Good luck!

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you so much, appreciate the compliment and the best wishes! Yes the sapphire crystal is curved and was indeed difficult to source.

  • Paul J

    Another strong showing from Liv in terms of putting their own modern stamp on classic styles, so few brands today micro or otherwise are bold enough for such a venture. Being that this is not their first offering, it would have been nice to see that the company had invested their own money instead of once again relying on kickstarter. It would be very interesting to read or view some real hands on reviews of this watch…all in all though, I have to say I really like the look of this new watch from Liv. *On a side note, I have what I think would be a very good slogan for the brand, should they wish to contact me 😉

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you Paul, we appreciate your well articulated compliment! Kickstarter is not just about raising money*, it’s also about exposure and connecting with people in a very real way. Kickstarter also gives us an opportunity to explain why the watch needs to exist, etc, it’s basically an online launch :). *Of course Kickstarter is great in terms of assisting us with raising money. I.e. to offer our watches at an accessible price to our fans, we have to produce X amount of timepieces to fill the MOQ (minimum quantity order) required by our manufacturers. Kickstarter allows us to pre-sell our new collections, giving us the buying power, and giving, our fans, a major discount in return.

  • Ulysses31

    I like the design. It’s different and fresh, while retaining some classically good-looking elements from vintage watches. I like the bright colours here, but I might also suggest a more sober version for every-day wear or to complement different clothes.

    That this was funded so quickly points to the fact that consumers are desperate for something distinctive that breaks the mold.

    • LIV – Swiss Watches

      Thank you so much, we appreciate the way in which you’ve articulated our brand direction and concept :). We do have less bright color options, each watch comes in approximately 5 color options, including gray, and black, so not all are bright 🙂 – you can check out our campaign page for many images of the different color options: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chazanow/the-most-rebellious-swiss-automatic-watch-ever-liv?ref=project_link as well as instagram.com/livwatches and facebook.com/livwatches.
