SVSTEM Quality Constructed Watches

We are SVSTEM. We speak to:

Functional utility over contrived exclusivity,
Premium quality at a democratic price point.


Featuring a modern aesthetic inspired by vintage timepieces, SVSTEM's 2016 Collection seamlessly blends traditional watch elements with new materials to create an elegant composition of old and new.

Having gone through the process of bringing a design from concept to production in our first campaign, we wanted to challenge ourselves the second time around with creating something that brings a unique voice to the lifestyle watch market.
Kenneth Tay, co-founder and designer

A Modern Classic

We focused on using unique materials and details: a three dimensional dial that provides a unique concave depth on the watch face, a silicone band that reveals a custom pattern on the underside, as well as a domed glass enclosure elevated by a symmetrically shaped back case-design.

We were able to dive deeper into the manufacturing process and material exploration this time around, and I think that really shows on the quality of finish, especially with the silicone band and domed glass. It's been really exciting seeing this collection finally come to life!

2 Colorways: Black / Steel

Released in 2 colorways, Black and Steel, each colorway accentuates a different aspect of the watch's thoughtfully crafted design.


The black colorway features a matte black PVD finish that exudes an elusive, tactical premium feel.


The steel colorway features a raw metal finish that emphasizes the purity of its material and its machined production process.

How can you offer such a deep discount?

PitchTop occasionally offers very deep discounts on high quality products. There are several reasons that we are able to achieve this.
First off, the sales are offered exclusively to members of our community, so you must have a PitchTop account in order to take advantage of the pricing (sign up here).
Most sales run for a very limited amount of time, so brands leverage these sales for strategic purposes.
