About

TACS creates memorable timepieces by following the four major principles of Taste, Attractiveness, Creativity and Sense. All our creations are derived from the things around us while featuring inspired twists and compelling character. 

Our last timepiece, Vintage Lens, took inspiration from period cameras, whereby we were able to fuse the functionality of a watch with the aesthetics of a vintage camera lens. After overwhelming support from the Kickstarter community for Vintage Lens, we’re now back with something new.

This year, we decided to work with the concept of the hourglass. An hourglass has a level of simplicity and elegance to it while also remaining a functional tool for telling the time. The unique shapes of an hourglass present time in a way where past, present and future are intertwined, but where the present has always been overlooked. By opting to use an hourglass as the impetus for our latest timepiece, we wanted the Time Glass to remind the wearer to enjoy the present, and to treasure the small moments in life.

The Time Glass aims to recreate the beauty and functionality of an hourglass by implementing several special design elements together. 

The curved casing of the Time Glass perfectly captures the lush curves of an hourglass, making it one of the only watches on the market with a curves case side.

The concave shape of the Time Glass’ dial offers up the uniform look of an hour glass's top view. Serving as a constant reminder that time is slipping through. 

The most important part of an hour glass is the center. That's why we wanted to reflect the same ideology by stemming our hands from the center of Time Glass Dial. The hands are also arched to perfectly match the contour of each Time Glass watch face.

The crownless design allows the Time Glass to offer an unparalleled degree of comfort by eliminating problematic chafing and irritation caused by crowned timepieces.  

We strive to offer the best quality at the highest value. This is why TACS has partnered with renowned Swiss movement-maker, Ronda, to include the brand-new 756 quartz movement which ensures lasting accuracy and reliability. TACS is one of the first few brands that adopts this Quartz movement.

 

We appreciate the trust that each of our backers puts in us, and wish to show our gratitude in a very special way. Each of our backers will receive a distinctive Time Glass watch with a unique serial number embossed on the case back.

In order to create the perfect design, we even took plenty of time to go through four different case back prototypes before setting on the final look.

Adjusting the time with Time Glass is a simple and intuitive process. Simply push the time adjustment button on the back of the watch to adjust the time by minute or hour.

To ensure optimal comfort, each Time Glass comes with a genuine leather strap customized with the Time Glass logo. The strap back and buckle is further customized with the TACS logo. For those who love to change up their style, we’ve included a quick release on all of our straps.

TACS will gift a special coin to each of our backers to signify that your Time Glass watch will have a lifetime warranty. This gift is exclusive to our backers as a token of our gratitude.

 The effort that has gone into creating the Time Glass is mirrored when it comes to its packaging. The hourglass theme continues with a beautiful stand made of a combination of clear acrylic and wood. The Time Glass floats in the center of the packaging to represent the sands of time. The packaging also doubles as a display piece so that you can safely use to exhibit or store your Time Glass when it is not being worn.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All TACS timepieces are made in our partner's state-of-the-art factory with an emphasis on cleanliness, quality control and modern production methods. We make sure to closely monitor progress and components produced so that they adhere to TAC's strict guidelines and standards. Our consistent refinement of the production process ensures that there are no compromises between efficiency and quality. 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Here at TACS our team has been built over the last six years with a combined experience in the watch industry for over 30 years.

Using this experience, we have created a plan that will meet both demand and production needs. Yet, no matter how prepared we are, component delays and unforeseen shortages can always occur. If this happens, you have our assurances that we will keep you informed and work to quickly resolve any problems that might arise.
