On September 1st, 2017 at 10:08PM (Montreal time), two days after the launch of the Type 77 presale campaign (where 50% of the Type 77 timepieces available had already been pre-ordered), Division Furtive was notified by its payment processor, Shopify, that the proceeds of the campaign were going to be frozen for 90 days because of a “chargeback risk”. The email from Shopify included the threat that the situation would continue if a single chargeback was to occur during that period. You can read this email here.

Firstly, Division Furtive was immediately worried for its collectors. Having collectors’ money in limbo for 3 months can only create two things: fear and uncertainty. Which, ironically, is a perfect scenario to see chargeback starting to pop-up. A lot of the future Type 77 collectors are returning collectors from the Type 40 and Type 50 presale campaigns and are among the world’s most faithful and patient people (simply read the feedback from the Type 40 and Type 50 Kickstarter campaigns to see that for yourself) but they did not sign up for this and it is unfair to impose this situation on them.

Secondly, as you can imagine, being imposed a three months delay out of nowhere from a minor actor in the project has devastating consequences on the project planning. This single action from Shopify has ruined more than a year of development and planning for this launch. What strikes the most is the unpredictable nature of Shopify’s decision. In addition to being a fellow Canadian company, Shopify had been chosen for its openness toward pre-orders. The rules instructed by the Shopify Guru in this post on Shopify ecommerce university had been followed.

Finally, Division Furtive doesn’t deal with companies that impose fear and uncertainty on its customers. Division Furtive has decided to put the money back where it belongs, that is in collectors’ pockets, not Shopify’s. At least by doing this, Shopify won’t be making 3-month worth of interest on the money of the presale campaign they decided to freeze out of nowhere. If you had placed a pre-order, you should already have received an email about the refund. Allow a few days for the refund to appear on your credit card. Please contact Division Furtive if you have questions.

Because the momentum built and the chosen launch window for this campaign is now lost, the future of Division Furtive is uncertain and the Type 77 production is now on hold. Feel free to remain subscribed to the Division Furtive mailing list if you are interested in the upcoming developments.

Overview

Type 77 is a new series of devices from Division Furtive. Each device has its particular function and internal construction. For the initial launch, four devices are offered: the Type 77.TIME timepiece, the Type 77.MOVE fitness tracker, the Type 77.CUBE wrist-fidget and the Type 77.MAZE wrist-game.

Across the Type 77 series, all the titanium casings are identical and have the the same available finishes. Initially four finishes are available: brushed titanium, matte titanium, brushed titanium with black PVD and matte titanium with black PVD. Production is limited to a total of 100 units per device. Each Type 77 device sports the 1/100 serial number as a symbol of its uniqueness. Specific serial numbers and customization are not available.

Presale

The devices are offered for presale for a period of 30 days starting on August 30th, 2017. Depending on the selected device, production time will take between 6 and 12 months. You are invited to follow the progress of the production on Division Furtive’s Instagram, Facebook or Twitter page were updates will be posted frequently.

The presale is essential to the completion of the series and presale prices are therefore aggressively discounted to ensure the greatest level of participation in this important phase of the project. Division Furtive has an history of successful crowdfunding projects. You can see these below (Type 50, Type 46 and Type 40).

Type 77.TIME

Type 77.TIME is an electro-mechanical timepiece. When triggered by the user (either by wrist rotation motion in AUTO mode or by pushing the crown in MAN mode), the watch displays time for 15 seconds. The hours are static and illuminated by one of the twelve individual RGB LEDs. The minutes are on the center revolving disc and align with the illuminated hour to display current time.

The user can select the RGB LED color either manually or with an optic live color picker. The optic live color picker is particularly well suited to detect non-glossy uniform colors from clothing.

Type 77.MOVE is an electro-mechanical fitness tracker. When triggered by the user (by pushing the crown), the device displays the user’s activity level on a scale of 1 to 12 (1 is inactive and 12 is very active). The activity level is illuminated by twelve individual RGB LEDs. When the activity level is low (user has been idle for a while) the mechanical gears of the device move to notify the user.

The user can select the RGB LED color either manually or with an automatic live color picker. The automatic live color picker is particularly well suited to detect non-glossy uniform colors from clothing.

Words can hardly express the level of control the device gives to its user…watch this video to see how this device operates.

The device does not require batteries and operates only using magnetic fields.

Overview

A dual linear LED-display watch. Based on the Type 40 design but with a metal casing, white LEDs and a new flashlight function. Production limited to 1000 units. Buy Now. Each Type 50 watch sports its unique serial number (No. 001 to N0. 1000). The watch was officially introduced on Kickstarter where sufficient units have been pre-ordered to launch production. Watch the Kickstarter campaign presentation video, watch the instruction videos or visit the Type 50 high-resolution gallery.

Operation

When the watch is in reading mode, meaning the watch has detected a wrist rotation gesture, the cursors quickly move to show the current time. At this point, the upper cursor shows the hours and the lower cursor, the minutes. Minutes are displayed precisely by one or two pulses of the bottow cursor, to the left (-1 min./-2 min.) or to the right (+1 min./+2 min.) of the closest 5-minute mutliple. When the minutes are an even multiple of five, the bottom cursor is static. The watch sports no buttons: to activate the secondary functions, the user must tap (or double-tap depending on the desired function to activate) the front glass.

Overview

The Type 50.1 is a subset of the Type 50 production but with new dial design that includes a front-facing serial number. The overall Type 50 production is limited to 1000 units (meaning the total production of Type 50 + Type 50X + Type 50.1 = 1000 units), each Type 50.1 watch therefore sports its unique serial number from 1 to 1000. 

Operation

The Division Furtive Type 50.1 watch operates exactly the same way as the standard Type 50 and has all the same features.

Overview

The Type 50 Extreme Edition (or Type 50X) is a subset of the Type 50 production with the “flux capacitor” dial. This dial as a deeper perspective and sports the serial number in bold 3D characters.

Operation

The Division Furtive Type 50 Extreme Edition watch operates exactly the same way as the standard Type 50 and has all the same features. However, because the dial sits lower, the battery is a AAAA instead of AAA. Because of this, the power reserve is 40% less than the standard Type 50.

Overview

A dual linear LED-display watch. Based on the Type 46 design and production limited to 1000 units. Inspired by the Type 46 design but built for action and robustness. The Type 46’s metal casing is replaced by an equally-sized, epoxy-filled plastic structure. The mechanical cursors are replaced by bright amber LEDs. This makes for an incredibly durable watch with a nice feel. Each Type 40 watch sports a boldly marked serial number on its left side (No. 001 to N0. 1000).
