THE LAUNCH EDITION IS A MOTOR INSPIRED TIME SCULPTURE

The Launch Edition, represents the ultimate next chapter in Wilbur's potent design and character. It is the essence of a true trailblazer watch while also being one of the 'simplest" Wilbur designs. This level of execution is only possible through the merging of advanced design, old-school hand finishing, modern manufacturing expertise and serious design risk taking.

The main design concept was to create chassis-like architectural structures that make up the watch case - inspired by motors. The dial and movement components are similarly constructed to be “suspended” within the case while the chapter ring “floats” above the dial. All of this makes for a time-sculpture with a ton of character and multiple levels of depth like no other. 

The 9-part case was engineered to allow for a modular construction so unique pieces and limited series could be simply constructed from the core components. 250 pieces of each base version were made, but by assembling components from base models Jason creates new ultra-limited “Speed shop” versions. All Launch Edition pieces are individually numbered.

The movement was purposely chosen for it’s unsung history. This is the same engine that was inside Jason Wilbur's first mechanical watch that he had when he was 6 years old. Wilbur’s goal was to give new life to a movement never celebrated in such fashion and wrap it in modern art. This certainly breaks the rules, and that’s part of the fun!

The benchmark Launch Edition is offered in 316L Stainless Steel with multiple finishes and coatings, a Japanese Seiko NH35 automatic movement and sapphire crystals all-around with Anti-reflective coating and Luminescent hands and hour-markers. 1-off pieces are offered in different materials from time to time.

The Wilbur Design &Engineering studio and "Speed Shop" / Assembly & QC factory is in Southern California.  

Every WILBUR watch comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
