Rotate® offers all-in-one kits to build your own mechanical watch. Each kit includes all the parts, tools, and guidance that you’ll need. We have several styles, difficulty levels, and build types to choose from.
If you’re more interested in the intricate inner workings of the watch, we recommend a movement kit. If you’d like the bigger picture and to have a completed watch in the end, we recommend a watch kit. The two kit types show two separate processes and ultimately, getting both types will give the full experience. Use code KITBUNDLE for $50 off multiple kits!
To get the full movement kit and access to the movement guide, you’ll need to purchase a movement kit. Though it may seem redundant to have two movements, we highly recommend it since the highest performing watch uses the unopened movement. Use code KITBUNDLE for $50 off both types of kits.
Our leather straps fit a wrist of approximately 17-22 cm (6.7-8.6 in), and our metal straps can be adjusted to any length under 22cm (8.6 in). All fit most wrist sizes, including women’s.
