World’s first open source mechanical Swiss watch movement
The deadline for finding donors to support the prototype and homologation phase was 31.12.2021
After all the years in which we have invested well over 5,000 hours in volunteer work in openmovement, the new year 2022 begins with very happy news: we have reached 75% of the budget and thus the minimum of the funding target, which we need – in the style of the pioneers of space travel – as GoFlight for the entire prototype phase of the world’s first opensource watch movement!
To the donors who make this possible, we thank you most sincerely – we may well say – in the name of all who accompany openmovement. We would also like to thank the members of the association and the users, who through their participation are two important pillars of openmovement. In short, thanks to all of you and for you, openmovement exists!
openmovement – open source
openmovement is an association dedicated to the development of new basic watch movements along open source principles.
These pages are in English only for the time being, we ask for the understanding of all French and German speakers.
Also we built a new platform to promote exchange within the openmovement community. Find it on community.openmovement.org and let’s gain experience with the platform. We look forward to your feedback (and than you in advance for your patience).

We may start the new year 2022 with full speed ahead. The financing of the prototypes of OM10 MAN is mainly secured. So that we don’t have to make too big compromises when it comes to homologation and the way to serial production of the individual parts, it is important to find the 25% of the budget that is missing. If anyone is still interested in one of the last sponsor watches, please contact us. The documents with the conditions can still be found below. A place for a co-sponsor kit (CHF 11’000) is also still available. Write us and get more details for this.
As the others, become a sponsor and write this new chapter of watchmaking with us!
