Boomerang Watches Launch Their Sublime Collection, Blending Vintage Styling with a Modern Twist, and Turn to Popular Kickstarter for Development

Recommended Posts

Boomerang Watches are thrilled to announce the launch of their exquisite collection of fine watches - The Sunbeam Collection - combining vintage styling with state-of-the-art watch movements. The company is initiating an exciting campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for its development, offering amazing deals on strictly Limited Edition time-pieces.
 
(New York, USA) - Vintage watches are hugely desirable and have a large, global fan base keen to get hold of the most recent vintage release and the latest trend. Watch aficionados around the world hold vintage designs in high regard - now they have The Sunbeam Collection to catch their attention.
 
Boomerang Watches are pioneers in the watch-making industry: The Sunbeam is a bespoke vintage watch - built to a customer’s exacting specifications. The customer can choose from a range of dial-face colors, metal casing materials, and strap designs; to make their limited edition time-piece a truly unique, timeless classic. 
 
Boomerang’s exceptional watch-making and the collection’s timeless elegance make The Sunbeam an unrivaled classic that’s sure to become a collector’s piece; designed to satisfy the most exuberant of tastes. 


 
The Concept


The Sunbeam Collection is inspired by the leading men of classic movies: reviving the Riviera Soul of the 1950s.

Dear OP ( @LauraJEdwards )  :

You had me :Snore: with the lack of details about the movement or manufacture ... "timeless classic," more like "wannabe vintage themed cheap tat" ... but using Cary Grant's image on your crowdfunding home page, a total :thumbdown: and :nono: in my book. Appropriating his image to sell your watch is perhaps uncouth and possibly an intellectual property theft. (Neither he or his estate have vouched for your little endeavor, am I correct?) 

Also, your company is supposed to be NYC based, but YOUR account is in Moldava? :huh:  Uh-huh.

(OTOH, the sycophantic hyperbole is good :crazy5vh: )

PS - does anyone in your organisation know what a Boomerang is and does?

Maybe they expect most of their watches to be returned for refund after fulfillment...? :whistle:

I do wish that Roy would get rid of this section of the forum. For me it is a total waste of space. I visited the website to be greeted with a range of watches called Sunbeam. What has that name got to do with the name boomerang?

The there is the QC of their website quote:

IT SAYS THAT I CAN SELECT THE CAN SELECT THE CASE COLOR AND THE STRAP COLOR AFTER THE CAMPAIGN HAS ENDED. WHEN IS THAT, AND HOW WILL I LET YOU KNOW MY PREFERENCE ?

If that is an example of their QC, I definitely do not want to know.

I've worked it out, you get a free Boomerang with every watch to save on the return postage? Strap the watch to the RH arm of the Boomerang (southern hemispheres) or the LH arm (northern hemispheres) and wheech it out the nearest window - - :whistle:

Sounds like a lot of work. Can I just throw the POS watch out the window and keep the boomerang?

Is not the word "Sunbeam" still copyright?

 

Perhaps, but it has been used by several company's in the past.

I was quite fond of some Sunbeam cars when they still existed.:)

Someone might still own the trademark, but use on a completely different product could be defensible.

@Chromejob the movements are listed:

"Automatic Collection is powered by Japanese Miyota 9015 movement - one of the world's most exclusive and reliable watch-movements."

...really?

"Manual Collection uses Swizz Quartz in the Ronda 515 movement: widely acclaimed as supremely efficient and precise."

...if you say so

BTW, just for reference:

"Citizen (Miyota) claims the accuracy of the caliber 9015 to be within -10~30 seconds per day."

30 seconds per day is not my idea of reliable. Then again I use ratomicradio watches which are accurate to a fraction of a second per year :P
