About this project
First time on Kickstarter.
Here is how it works. If you would like a Toc19 watch, all you need to do is back us today by clicking on the pledge you want on the right side of the page.
Then once the campaign ends, Toc will email you and you can then choose the watch and strap combination that suits your style.
Max and I formed Toc Watch from our desire to liberate our entrepreneurial spirit. Toc19 is the culmination and expression of this.
We are two friends who decided it was time to allow our creativeness to determine our future. We believe in individuality, boldness and achieving what you aspire to. Therefore, working at something that fulfils you can become your lifestyle.
We wanted to stay true to what influenced the design, the Bauhaus Design Movement (est. 1919). Our watch incorporates its principles of simplicity and function. In honour of this era, these dial editions will be limited to only 1919 pieces.
From the offset, Toc wanted to focus on form and function, so delivering a simple yet stylish watch combined with quality materials was vital. The Toc19 is the only model in our initial launch, with dial colour and strap variations the only difference. This allowed us focus on the most important elements which was the substance and materials used.
Toc have designed a bespoke custom case from scratch. The case is made from 316L surgical grade stainless steel.
Sapphire Crystal is the 2nd hardest material known to man (2nd only to Diamond) and much harder than Gorilla Glass. Therefore, this seriously scratch proof Sapphire Crystal Glass was the only real option to showcase the Toc19 and its movement.
Two of the dials have a smooth finish: Retro Cream and Carbon Black. The four other dials are finished with a stunning sunray pattern that reflects light at every angle: Crimson Red, Graphite Grey, Emerald Green and Silver
We guarantee you get the Toc19 of your choice by allowing you to combine any dial colour with any strap style you like. Build the Toc19 your way.
The hand wound movement is a thing of beauty so we decided to showcase it through the Exhibition Case which is covered by Scratch Proof Sapphire Crystal. The mechanical movement is the Seagull ST3621. It’s reliable and beautiful. You will find yourself mesmerised by the movement of the spring as it powers the watch.
Turn the Toc19 over to see the engraved custom steel.
The Toc logo and Dublin automatically draw your attention but look closely at the special numbering etched into your watch. This is your limited edition Toc19 with your limited edition number reminding you how special it is. Limited to only 1919 of these combined dial colours. That’s special.
All straps are made from Italian leather. Toc also makes a point of etching its name into the buckle as well as branding each leather strap
When the campaign ends, you can then choose the strap you like the most.
Toc’s Platinum Club is an exclusive club for our first 200 backers only of our campaign. This gives you 12.5% off the price of future purchases of Toc watches for life, even if it’s an early bird offer. More on Toc’s Platinum Club to follow.
The case is designed completely from scratch. Every measurement considered and debated on, from the size of the crown, the thickness of the lug, to its perfect weight
When was the last time that you wished you could make a change? Not just any change, a life altering change?
We ship Toc Watches worldwide. Please note that you might be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable in your country.
We expect to ship all Toc19 orders in November 2017. In manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfil 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 ahead of 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 email us at email@example.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
Initial challenge was finding a manufacturer that was a good fit considering we are a startup and it is our first watch.
Our manufacturer has been extremely supportive and patient as we tend to be quite obsessed in getting every small detail right. The final product speaks for itself.
