Gothenburg, Sweden – November 11, 2021 – After colossal success with LEGACY series, Swedish watchmaker SÖNER has recently launched another unique collection of luxury timepieces on Kickstarter. Aptly titled “Momentum”, the latest SÖNER watch series presents Art Deco movement-inspired square watches that aim to challenge the dominance of round dial watches in the contemporary timepiece world. The modern automatic watch is graced by proven minimalist design that combines premier quality with originality at an affordable price point.
The campaign is geared to raise around $17,395 within December 13, 2021.
The Momentum comes in 3 variations –
- Momentum P – Polished Stainless Steel Case with Green Dial and light brown leather strap
- Momentum P – Polished Stainless Steel Case with Black Dial and Silver Milanese bracelet
- Momentum I – Brushed Stainless Steel Case with Black Dial and Black leather strap
- Momentum Q – Polished Stainless Steel Case with White Dial and Brown leather strap
“In a market that is mostly dominated by round dial watches, we wish to be something ‘different’. Inspired by the legendary Cartier Tank and JLC Reverso, our Momentum timepiece is an exclusive blend of Art Deco movement of the 1920s and modern watchmaking that have come together to create something truly unique. We have strategically selected the ‘rectangular’ shape to differentiate both our watch design and business mentality from the existing watches in the market. We have specifically opted for a rectangular stainless steel case to pose a challenge to the dominance of circular-shaped timepieces and also to inspire the watch world to welcome the square design once again”, stated Freddie Palmgren, the founder of SÖNER.
Interestingly, the term SÖNER in Swedish stands for “sons”. Freddie said the SÖNER logo captures the essence of father-son bond, paying tribute to his two beloved sons, William and Widar. The two letters, “S” and “W” have been wrapped tightly into one another, representing SÖNER as well as William and Widar respectively. The 3 dots that stand above “SÖNER” represent the father and his two sons.
“Like all our watches, the SÖNER Momentum too has been designed with a timeless design that you would love to pass on as a treasured family legacy to your future generations.”
