The resuscitated brand is pushing its 4th birthday this December yet before that, they have another thing to share. Lebois & Co uncovers their second model; the Venturist. A mix among dressy and lively the Venturist can take out two targets with one shot.

With an instance of superior grade and solid 316L tempered steel, it’s the ideal companion for the ordinary use just as some more harsh experiences. The clear black dial, domed over by a scratch-safe sapphire precious stone, gives ideal vision in both day and evening time. Super-LumiNova coated hands, applied hour markers and files make it simpler for the wearer to check the time in obscurity. The watch is water impervious to 10 ATMs or 100 meters (330 feet for the supreme unit framework perusers). It has a chronometer certified development with ISO 764 attractive field resistance.

The development decoration is stunning with Geneva stripes (Cotes de Genéve), perlage, jewel cutting and blued screws which you would all be able to see through the presentation case back.

As I referenced first and foremost, it improves than that. The watch comes with the chance to claim part of the company that makes it.

The retail cost of the watch, including shares, will be €2500.
Q&A With Lebois & Co
We likewise had the chance to ask Tom van Wijlick a few inquiries about the Venturist and becoming a shareholder.
The Venturist unmistakably has an alternate plan from the Avantgarde, a touch more energetic, a smidgen more, “Pioneer”. Would you be able to enlighten our perusers something regarding the plan process?
The thought of an experience (“Explorer”) watch began right around two years prior. With its cleaned bezel and refined dial the Avantgarde Date is deciphered as an easygoing dress watch and will in general be liked for more conventional events. Combined with the way that Lebois & Co additionally delivered apparatus watches back in the days of yore we chose to expand the collection with a more manly device watch. A watch that is tough without losing the refined that Lebois & Co is known for. That is the reason we combined that toughness with ‘azurage’ impact on the dial, which is likewise present on the Avantgarde, and a straightforward case back that shows the decorated development. The Venturist was made in light of the profile of our admirers; watch lovers who are common leaning, who have an eye for detail and appreciate top caliber and precision.
Do you feel that the chronometer endorsement and the counter attractive ISO standard you comply with, is vital to customers?
In my assessment, it does. I’m mindful of the way that there are still a great deal of clients out there that don’t think about watch confirmations and standards that exist around wristwatches. In any case, when you illuminate clients about the confirmation they very quickly recognize its additional estimation. I think it is dependent upon the brands to advise their clients about it while simultaneously it shows how genuine a brand takes the item they are selling. As far as I might be concerned, the affirmation underscores the heading we need to go with Lebois & Co.
Can you inform our perusers a piece regarding the evaluating procedure of the Venturist and the likelihood to become a shareholder?
The Venturist is evaluated at € 2,500. For this event, we made an exceptional ‘combo bundle’ that combines the Venturist with portions of the company (the last being essential for our ‘become an investor’ crusade). The bundle contains 25 offers which address a venture of € 1,000 and qualifies the proprietor for 40% discount on Lebois & Co watches. Included this outcomes in a bundle that is valued precisely € 2,500, a similar cost of the retail cost of the watch. In short; by purchasing the combo bundle the purchaser gets a watch as well as a component of the company that makes it.
If we take the value purpose of the Venturist and compare it to watches of the large brands, who additionally offer chronometer confirmed watches (Longines Record comes to mind), for what reason should somebody go for the Lebois rather than the Longines?
Being the microbrand Lebois & Co actually is, gives us the burden that we can’t dispatch as much watches and as huge showcasing efforts as the large brands. Nonetheless, this doesn’t imply that we can’t offer watches with comparable quality, which we demonstrate with the Venturist. While I can envision clients that somewhat pick a watch of the large brands, there are additionally clients that favor watches of more modest brands. They esteem the way that their watch is more one of a kind (since it isn’t seen all over the place) yet in addition the cozy relationship with the brand and at times even the proprietor and makers. Likewise, we are frequently named as the elective which is fine as well; let us be the brand that aficionados purchase whenever they have purchased a watch of the large brands. That way the involvement in our brand and the nature of our watches can measure up and proven.
What has this experience (no joke expected) brought you up until now? Are you still the watch energetic you were previously or has it moved onto something different, as entrepreneurship?
A become a close acquaintence with business person and financial backer once disclosed to me I would need to settle on a decision; keep Lebois & Co as a task as an afterthought which would give incredible conversation material to a gathering, or transform it into a genuine business. For me the goal was exceptionally obvious all along; I began Lebois & Co out of enthusiasm with the expectation to develop it into a fruitful business implying that I am still similarly as enthusiastic about looks as in the past. All things considered, frequently the best business is driven by energy. Since I have begun composing (and sharing) our field-tested strategy, things have gotten more genuine and organized. I think this is something to be thankful for and it will profit the likely accomplishment of the company. Luckily, I saw that I actually prefer to discuss watches (and Lebois & Co specifically) during a party…
When can we see the Venturist? Are you intending to display at a reasonable or exchange show?
The Venturist will be prepared for conveyance in 2019. We fully plan to show the Venturist and other (upcoming) watches of our collection. We are dealing with plans to display at fairs and career expos. When and how relies upon the advancement of our ‘become an investor’ campaign.
