After an unforgettable experience in Thailand, FUTLOV was founded as a brand with a purpose and combines a love for watches and a passion for soccer in expertly crafted watches with a giveback program to help bring soccer equipment to those in need.

Our first watch, the Pasadena 94' brings together soccer-inspired details in subtle yet complimenting watch design for true fans of the sport.

Futlov Pasadena 94' at a Glance:

Futlov prides itself in being able to provide a social impact to those less fortunate.

A Trip to Thailand that Changed Everything

Four kids played soccer barefoot with a ball made out of cloth and knots.

I joined the kids and played, having such an incredible time. On our way back to the town, we picked up a full-sized ball for the kids to be left with. This first trip left a huge impression on me. 

Two years later in Uruguay, I was walking to the Centenario stadium where the first World Cup final was played, I noticed a dirt soccer field where I noticed kids playing soccer with water bottle.

I finally told myself that I had to find a way to help these kids in one way or another.

Our First Partnership: El Semillero 

Our mission starts in El Semillero, or "The Seeder", a famous soccer field in Quito, Ecuador.

El Semillero is a place where orphans and children from low income backgrounds participate in free soccer lessons, play in scrimmages, and enjoy their favorite sport.

We partnered with El Semillero in 2017 and have been planning for Futlov's Pasadena 94' launch to provide support for our giveback program. We are in discussions with other foundations in Brazil, Venezuela, India, Kenya.

1:1 Giveback Program Equipping the Soccer Players of Tomorrow

Futlov's social mission is to spread the love of soccer to those in need.

 For each watch sold, we will donate either a soccer ball, a pair of cleats, a jersey, or shorts. This will vary on the needs of each foundation.

 The Pasadena 94' celebrates the most-loved sport in the world. With a fine attention detail, we sought to the sport justice in a beautiful watch.

Named After a Historic World Cup Event

In 1994, the United States of America hosted the FIFA World Cup to break new viewership records and see Brazil be the first team to win Four World Cups.

FUTLOV wanted to pay a tribute to the 1994 FIFA World Cup because is the first and only World Cup ever played in the United States territory. Similarly, the Pasadena 94 watch is the first soccer inspired watch designed in the United States. The final game was played between the teams of Brazil with Romario and Dunga vs Italy with Baresi and Roberto Baggio. The game was so intense that it went to penalty kicks. Finally, Brazil was crowned champion after Italy’s last shot from one of their star players hit the post.

A Stunning Watch Face To Show Your Team Pride

Eye-catching Color Trim Keeps a Subtle Nod to the Team You Love.

The face features gun metal hand and colored seconds hand and markers. Two colored, smaller sub dials mark the seconds in regular time, and also the minutes when using the chronograph feature. 

The hour and minute hands have a luminosity that glows in the dark and a functional date window is included.

One-of-a-Kind Soccer-Pattern Strap

Featuring a 100% genuine leather strap, Futlov imparts a unique design for any soccer fan. 

Futlov's unique soccer ball pattern across the strap is sure to bring memories from your earliest experience with the game. A vertical thread runs down the strap in that matches the color of the sub dials and chronograph seconds hand. The lug width rests at a comfortable 22mm on the wrist.

I became a soccer fan before I was able to walk. With my mechanical engineering background, I was always fascinated by product design, and craftsmanship required to make beautiful watches. I have worked in the medical device industry for orthopedic implants where quality comes first before anything. I have taken this same methodology to FUTLOV where I want our products to have a high standard of quality along with finding ways to reduce costs.

Risks and challenges

There are several risks when it comes to manufacture a quality watch. Due to our stringent quality requirements, all watch components have to pass rigorous inspections before they can be used for assembly. Below are the potential risks or challenges to ship and fulfill the project.

1. Manufacturing – The lead time to manufacture the watches is 12 weeks assuming everything works out as plan. Given the amount of components needed to assemble a watch, and the quality requirements, the lead time could be increased if some components do not pass inspection.

2. Shipping from manufacturer – Due to continuous changes in regulations and import rules, there could be delays in receiving of the shipment in the U.S. Futlov is currently looking for the best freight forwarders that will handle all the customs documentation for the shipment to be as smooth as possible.

3. Inventory management – Given the amount of orders generated in the crowdfunding campaign, we will need to figure out a way to keep track of the inventory that is needed, and what will be left after fulfilling all the rewards.
