About the watch

Available only in an ultra-limited edition of 250 pieces per reference, the 2020 Automatic Launch Edition, represents the ultimate in design and engineering. The result is the culmination of over 3 years of development and fine tuning. Every Wilbur watch is designed and engineered in CAD by Jason Wilbur himself. This level of quality of craftsmanship and finishing is only possible through the merging of advanced design, passion, and old school hand finishing and watchmaking expertise.

The main concept was to create an emotionally and technically bold statement inspired by Jason Wilbur's days as a concept car designer. The fully customizable modular case was meant to look like a motor on your wrist.

The technical concept for the Launch Edition was to create a piece of art using one of the simplest and most robust mechanical movements available, and build a potent sculpture around it. This is the same movement that was inside Jason Wilbur's first mechanical watch that he had when he was 6 years old. 

The merging of these concepts was the foundation for the Launch Edition. 

In addition to the numerous luxury features, the innovative 9-part case design is reminiscent of modern race car engineering in that the central “chassis” components are supported by various “sub-frame” structures which complete the overall design. The Launch Edition is water resistant to 100 Meters; No Small feat for a 9-part case. 

The Launch Edition is offered in 316L Stainless Steel with multiple finishes and coatings, a Seiko Japanese automatic movement, and sapphire crystals all-around with Anti-reflective coating and Luminescent hands and hour-markers for low-light visibility.
