Robusto Prototype Finalized

We are happy to announce that our latest prototype is according specification. The progress and evolution is very noticeable and with a little bragging we dare to say that we have reached the quality level we set out for when we started TiMe22 (a little over a year ago already).

The finishing, look and feel of the watch can easily be compared to that of the titanium timepieces from established brands such as Tag Heuer and Omega. Don’t worry, we will keep our prices on a different level πŸ˜‰ Talking about pricing: We are currently preparing the final retail price together with our production partner, and a second financial question is the amount we will need to raise with the Kickstarter launch; we estimate this to be around €40,000. The total amount necessarily invested is quite a bit more, but we are (and have) contributing that part ourselves. In other words: we need your help πŸ™‚

If you are not familiar yet with Kickstarter then please check out their website and create your account (you will need this to order your watch).

What comes next?

We are now preparing the Kickstarter and have hired a consultant specialized in Kickstarter marketing to help us out. We need to create photo and video material for the launch, website and social media. And most important we need to set a launch date and spread the word!

How can you help?

  • follow our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (to check out our photos and videos, also keep an eye on the Instagram Story )
  • tell everybody about your new watch πŸ˜‰ and tell them about our upcoming Kickstarter
  • if you have contacts in the media…. we can surely benefit from coverage πŸ˜‰

About Marc Schot

Born (1970) in Hengelo, The Netherlands. After finishing my military service and obtaining my degree in Telematics Engineering I co-founded several successful companies in the Online technology and Online services industry. So far I have lived and worked in 10 (or maybe 11 – I lost count) countries and travelled to many more. I have several years hands-on experience in the watches industry from the setup and management of the online distribution for a Swiss watch company. The little time I am not working I like to play a game of tennis, go for a ride on my mountain bike or spend some time on the water windsurfing. And I like food, especially the Peruvian cuisine! My favourite cigar is a Cuban Montecristo No. 2 and when I am not wearing a TiMe22 watch I wear vintage Tag Heuer from the ’90s. Stefan and I have talked for years about starting a company together, several plans (some good, some not that bright) were cooked up and now our shared passion for timepieces (and cigars) inspired to TiMe22.
