The name Ulysses really captures the essence of who we are and where we are at as an Irish Company. In a lot of ways Toc Ulysses is like James Joyce’s book of the same name. It’s bold, it’s complex and there is a style for everyone. Joyce’s book follows the journey of the central character across Dublin as he finds himself in places and positions he did not expect.
Toc is also on a journey of discovery and like every journey, one must adapt and change as the path unfolds. We travelled recently to China where we produce our watches. This trip was truly an eyeopener in many ways and showed us the potential that lies over the horizon. We realized that we need to push ourselves more and really challenge our inner desires and aspirations.
Toc believes in personal journeys and individuality. All our watches are minimal and classic in design with some modern twists to fit today’s world. Toc wants to inspire the wearer to be themselves. Every watch is built to last. They are built to tell a story about your unique personality.

*All watches seen in the videos and content are our prototypes. All production models will go through our personal lengthy manufacturer quality checks. No product will be shipped unless we are 100% happy, in order to ensure you are 100% happy.
A new watch deserves to be designed from scratch. The importance of every single detail cannot be overlooked whether it’s the angle at which the dial curves as it meets the outer case or the depth in the groves of the sub dial, even the feeling the new crown gives, brings another layer to the Ulysses.
Our straps need to complement our new watch and so we have added a new range of options to allow you balance your style between casual and dress when you need to.
We have received all our new handmade leather goods and they look amazing. So we decided to launch them now
We wanted our new box to match the sophistication of the watch. Made of ash, it’s strong and re-sprouts and grows quickly. Ash was sacred to our ancestors, the Celts. They believed that the ash tree had powers of protection and so with its soft cushioned inside, it’s the perfect choice to protect your watch. The satin silver TOC logo creates great contrast with dark varnished ash wood.

Will - I am lucky enough to be doing something I love. It’s a dream come true. Long hours never feel like long hours and scrutinizing every detail about our products is exciting when you are truly passionate about it. This is only the beginning for us. I can’t wait to bring you more. To me, success is the ability to create a solid business around a set of products I believe in.
Max - I have always looked at the world with an engineering head on. Every detail can be improved and made more efficient. I love the challenge that running a lean business brings. Our mechanical watches have the same methodology applied to them. They are minimally designed in order to add value but not to overcomplicate our lives. Each detail is proportional to its purpose.
You add your shipping address at the same time you confirm your watch options. Your shipping details can be updated at any time up until about 3 weeks before we ship the goods. (July)
Import Taxes and Duty
All watches bought from countries outside the EU could have Tax and Duty applied according to their countries laws. This is standard practice for all purchases online and you are responsible for knowing and paying these fees if applied.
All Toc Ulysses watches include a 2 year limited warranty.
We expect to ship all Toc Ulysses orders in July 2018. In manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. Our manufacturer is very professional and organized. We are confident that the production, assembly and testing process will run very efficiently. We aim to deliver on time. While we do not expect this deadline to move, it is a complex process with many moving parts, therefore there is always the risk the estimated shipment month may shift. If at any time you would like an update, please either check the "Updates" section of our Kickstarter Campaign, or feel free to reach us at info.thetocwatch.com. We'll update you frequently about our progress, and if there are any blips along the way, we'll let you know!

Risks and challenges
Timely delivery of every single step of the project is always challenging.
We've learnt from our previous project(Toc19) that we need to pay an extra attention to Shipping Process. That's why this time we decided to offer a courier delivery.
Although we were delighted with the quality of Toc19, we have learnt a lot and so we will be even stricter with the QA process for the Ulysses.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
