* We expect these timepieces to be operational for decades.  

The Present will ship as soon as it is possible given the global supply chain slowdown. It may ship as early as December but it may also ship in January or February of 2022. 

Outside of occasionally utilizing Kickstarter, The Present has yet to be marketed. The funds from your pre-order sale will be utilized immediately to hire additional staff and do all I can to help the assembly process run smoothly. You should expect your card to be charged within a day or two of your pre-order. 

Please keep in mind that The Present LLC is managed by one person.To date, I have made 7,200 timepieces that I've shipped to forty different countries. There should be no doubt that you will receive The Present. I ask for your patience as that date draws near. 

In time,
