These three men joined forces and experience in order to create a new watch brand which is debuting with a collection called “Step 1″. This collection features six watches across two product lines divided between two models: Day-Date and Chronograph.
The three Day-Date models offer a basic design and functionality within a variety of different cases, dials, and strap colors. They all have the retrograde day of the week display, the small seconds sub-dial and a big date display. There is also one domed sapphire crystal over the dial in all three watches.

Then we have three chronograph models in a bi-compax design whose main functions of chronographic are accessed via two round-topped pushers. All of the three models in this category can measure elapsed time to 1/10th of a second. Oh, and they also have that lovely domed sapphire crystal in their dial.
All of “Step 1″‘s watches are water resistant to 50m and are expected to have a lifespan of about 4 years. The three founders have stated that they are interested in developing timepieces with similar concepts powered by mechanical movements.
