Toc Watches

Postby koimaster » March 16th 2018, 9:13am

In 2016 we decided it was time for a change. We dove in the deep end and set up Toc Watch. We started planning, researching and designing of our 1st watch, the Toc19, which we launched in July 2017. It has now been shipped to 37 countries.


I am Will and along with Max, we are the founders of Toc Watch. We share the same passion for food, travel, motorbikes and just living life to the full.

As well as this we have always dreamed about setting up an Irish Company that incorporates our core beliefs; quality, simplicity, and value for money.

All our watches have retro styling and have the highest spec especially when considering the price point we have chosen. Everything we stand for is simple in its ideology but passionately executed.

A watch is such a personal item and that’s why our watches are designed to make a personal statement about you, the wearer.

Be part of our journey.

But at least they are not using granny lalo to design their watches. Honest about the movements as well. Reminds me in a way of my Maurice Lacroix Petite Second.

That gold-ish silver dial version of the 36mm version...hmmm...where have I seen that dial and hands design before?

Save for the sub-second, well, I've seen it here, in my very own collection:

A number of brands used that dial design in the 1940s, including Longines and Zenith alright.

I'd say that if they have looked at 1940s watches for inspiration, they certainly made good use of it.

The marketing and sales jargon... Well, it sucks flaccid lingam, as it usually does, and as it always does in Kickstarter projects, but since the watches don't suck flaccid lingam, it's fine - well, maybe not fine, but all in all the brand doesn't appal me.

Koi's ML and MK's Zenith are much nicer. The dial design is kinda cool but I can't seem to get past the ugly Toc logo. Yuck.
