Swiss watchmakers A. Manzoni & Fils and owner Oliver Ike have announced the re-launch of their iconic luxury brand with a Kickstarter campaign to fund a limited edition run of the Canopus Weekplanner. This timepiece has been designed by Ilkka Suppanen, and through the Kickstarter campaign will be available for a significantly discounted purchase price for early adopters. The Kickstarter campaign will launch at 6:00 PM EST on August 27th. The campaign will conclude at the same time on October 27th. For this limited time, watch enthusiasts and connoisseurs will have an opportunity to purchase the first run of these luxury timepieces at one third of the retail price - $5,000 US, and through their participation, become a part of the future history of this reborn brand. Oliver Ike, the founder of Ikepod, will once again be creating elegant timepieces that fuse design and contemporary style with the most sophisticated Swiss watchmaking knowhow.
Oliver Ike had this to say:
“Since my departure from Ikepod, I have been looking for a brand that represents all of these qualities while still nurturing a shared love of design and crasmanship, and I have found that with A Manzoni & Fils.”
