Lilian and Fred, our co-founders, started AWAKE with a simple idea : Create high-quality, well-designed watches made from recycled materials.
Being both watch enthusiasts was the opportunity to start
with a product they love, but also an object that could become a sign of recognition for a community of people sharing the same sustainable values.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
It was mid-summer back in 2018 when we launched the first high quality, fully recycled and recyclable solar watch on Kickstarter. 18 months of preparations came together. Our $20.000 goal was reached within 1 hour! We couldn't believe it. It was going to happen.
The 29 days that followed brought the total to $307,080. Pledged by 858 backers, our all-time heroes and founding members.
The months after pre-orders kept on coming in on our IndieGoGo InDemand page and by the end of December we shipped out the first 1300 AWAKE watches.

"Guys I have to say this again... these watches are extremely beautiful, a work of art! I’ve played with changing all the straps and it was easy and quick. Love the versatility! Once you wear the watch, you don’t want to take it off!"
"Great job! Keep on going. I will follow your job and certainly buy the next generation of Awake watch. You have awaken another fan."
"The watch is stunning, the straps are very nice and bring a lot of diversity and the overall product and the things it stands for (sustainable living) are mindblowing. Well done! I ll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!"
"The watch looks very smart, the blue face sets it off well with the strap."
KEEPING IT PERSONAL
Even as we grow, one thing that we've always wanted for AWAKE is to maintain the personal touch.
We don’t try to make AWAKE look like a big corporation. We are as transparent as possible. This is why we share a lot of the behind the scenes about how we design products and run AWAKE.
No matter how big AWAKE, we always want to be accessible to fans and customers. We absolutelty love connecting with people on Instagram, and Facebook.
Follow us and let's be AWAKE together.
