Fifteen days in and the Tesoro as raised a whopping $25,000+ dollars along their Kickstarter campaign and thing are just beginning to heat up. The Tesoro Automatic Mechanical Watch is Wave Designs Studios second installment to a line of beautifully crafted watches they have released over the years and is truly a stunner! ” Perceptual art for your wrist” is an accurate portrayal of how exactly the Tesoro will rest upon one’s wrist and will be perceived as such when spotted in the wild. The Tesoro is a versatile timepiece that deserves to be added to your collection.
We believe a wrist watch is an individual expression, an extension of one’s personality. It’s a piece of art put together in the form of miniature machinery that’s carried by an individual on one’s wrist.
Beauty that a conventional mechanical watch brings can never be replaced by a smart watch. A good mechanical watch has a real potential to become heirlooms and be handed down almost forever. Hence, our ambitious project to create a mechanical watch that’s not only unique in styling but also ultra modern in design
Our work has identified an obvious gap in the watch market – an ultra modern, cool looking & artistic mechanical watch. Together with our core team of designers, we have designed our first collection of automatic timepieces called TESORO.

We do think smart watches are cool but they are not timeless. Just like other gadgets they would be replaced by new gadgets in the coming times, whereas mechanical watches are timeless wearable art that only gets better with time. We believe elegance of a mechanical watch is irreplaceable. It’s a piece of functional jewelry that every person is proud to sport.
