LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EGARD watch company, a USA based watch brand launched a collaborative watch collection with William Shatner named 'PASSAGES' by EGARD.
Mr. Shatner was deeply involved in the conceptualization and design of PASSAGES, a signed Limited Edition watch, featuring an automatic movement outfitted with a custom disk to represent day and night, that sits opposite to the open "beating heart" of the mechanical automatic movement displayed on the dial. Mr. Shatner's idea behind this feature is that "our hearts & passions are what drive us through the days and nights of our lives."
To further solidify the concept of the Passages of time, EGARD decided to add authentic meteor dust to the AM/PM disc, in order to include elements from the present moment, back to the moment of creation of the universe itself. The launch of the PASSAGES collection took place on the crowd funding site, INDIEGOGO.COM on November 19, 2013, offered as a Presale, the campaign surpassed its funding goal in less than 48 hours.
The campaign ended on January 17th to record results:
