Last month we told you about JUUK, a third party stainless steel Apple Watch bracelet project started by Canadian Eugene Ho on Indiegogo. Unfortunately his Indiegogo campaign only raised just under $14,000, missing the project’s final fundraising goal. But Eugene’s determination towards this passionate project of his means he has now started to fund the project himself to move it forward as planned–with plans to release 38mm options as well.

Eugene explained to iPhoneinCanada.ca via email his reasons for keeping this project moving forward on his own:
“I worked hard to find alternate ways to fund this because I believe in it so much. I think there’s a market for beautifully designed and well-made bracelets for the Apple Watch that aren’t cheap, exact replicas of Apple’s Link bracelet. After getting so many positive comments from the Apple community about these being the best 3rd party Apple bands out there, that encouragement really pushed me to find a way, and here we are…we’ve now started production on the 42mm Revo bracelet. Once cashflows allow, we’ll be quickly rolling out the 38mm Revo, the 42mm Locarno and a few other 38mm designs that we are already working on that will give a lot of unique personality to the Watch.”
