Filippo Loreti Watch Reviews
About Filippo Loreti Watch
The Filippo Loreti Watch, found online at Kickstarter.com, is a luxury brand Italian watch which has started a crowdfunding campaign to provide customers with high quality watches at affordable prices.
How Does It Work?
According to their crowdfunding page, most luxury watch brands are incredibly expensive not just because they are high quality, but because they require a variety of manufacturers, distributers, marketers, and retailers to all be involved in the creation and selling process.
Filippo Loreti decided they wanted to try a new approach to providing their customers with high quality watches at more affordable price points by cutting out all the middle men that were involved and instead using a crowdfunding approach to finance the creation of each individual watch.
Their watches will still be held to the same luxury standards as always, made from 316L stainless steel which offers high strength, durability, and long-lasting visual appearance. They also offer premium quality Italian leather bands that will be made to your specific wrist measurements for the best fit.
Their website says that this new approach to watchmaking will truly create luxury watches, as their watches will be limited edition and made to order, not mass produced and available at local retailers.
Unfortunately this product is not yet available for sale on the open market at this time, as they are still in process of crowdfunding on their Kickstarter page. Customers who are interested in purchasing this product at this time will be able to order one for roughly $158.18, as all prices are listed in Euros at this time, and it appears as though the full retail price of these products will be $317.42.
According to their crowdfunding page, it seems as though this product will begin being shipped to crowdfunding donators during Spring of 2017, though these dates may change in the future.
Because this product is not yet actually being sold on the open market, they also do not appear to have any kind of published Refund Policy available for their customers at this time. Hopefully once their product actually begins being delivered to customers that participated in their crowdfunding campaign in the Spring of 2017, they will begin publishing these important policies, but until then customers will need to contact their Customer Service team with any questions they have regarding refunds.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to them by using the Ask A Question link at the bottom of the Kickstarter page.
Because this company has not actually yet made this product available on the open market, there is no way to know how well it will fulfill all of the promises it has made to its consumers. However, it does appear that the other watches they have made in the past that have been sold at luxury prices are well-liked, so it stands to reason that these new collections should be made to high standards as well.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Certainly there are many different kinds of luxury watches available on the market, as well as many mid-level watches which have fantastic ratings and reviews and tend to be significantly more affordable, so customers who are looking for a watch to purchase in either of these categories will find many other options for their needs.

I bought 4 pieces in March and they said it would arrive by Jun. My various email chasers received no response until now. This is definitely a fraud or they have gone into financial difficulty due to the pandemic!
Forget about wasting your hard earned money on this junk that is supposedly made to order. What is actually going on is they wait until a minimum order qty has been met to make their order with the Chinese mfrs. This way, they don't need to keep any unnecessary inventory which tie up funds. They have effectively cut out all the middleman and replaced them with Filippo Loreti. And just who is Filippo Loreti you ask? Was he a famous italian designer from days past or is he a current fashionista flying under the radar? Answer to those questions are both NO! There is no one by that name, it was made up to fool you into thinking this is a high fashion Italian company. If you don't already kNow, Filippo Loreti's founders are from Lithuania and I do not kNow what other qualifications exists but one thing for sure is they are masters of marketing. No one can deny the excellent job marketing this company with a made up name...
Word of advice, if you like these watches, you owe it to yourself to take a look at these following companies; Tissot, Hamilton, Seiko, Orient, Longines, Oris for starters. Heck, even Timex would be more deserving than them based on their history alone. Shop around and you can find a watch 10 times better than the one you thought you wanted from FL. And all the companies mentioned have tons of credentials to back up their name and product.
accidentally purchased the blk Okeanos.I though I selected the green one and after the purchase it was too late. Then called their customer service 1800 and no answer. Emailed them 3 days ago and nothing. I'm done with them. I will not buy from them again.....
Ordered moon phase watch, ad said delivery in 2 to 3 weeks, I was good with that. 24 hours later I received an email saying my watch will be delivered in March 2020 … WTF … It took 9 emails to finally get them to agree to refund my money. Then I get a confirmation email saying it will take 7 to 14 business day. It took them 3 seconds to take my money. Don't buy from them.
They sent me a cheap watch and when I wanted to return it. They asked for pictures and then said I could not return due to I had worn it. I never wore the watch. It looked cheap out the box and wrist ban feels like cardboard.
I ordered my watch after seeing it online. It arrived intact and within a reasonable amount of time. The watch looks great and has a nice heft. So far, it is working as I anticipated and I have no complaints. I really like it.
I bought a watch and just found out that they will deliver in September. do not recommend the company
