Start-Up Of The Day


From top: The Toc watch and its co-creator, Will Monaghan

Dublin-based start-up Toc Watch went online recently to fund their hand-wound, Bauhaus-inspired timepieces.

How did that go?

Ian Matthews, of the Irish Entrepreneur Blog, writes:

Will Monaghan, from Trim, Co Meath, along with his co-founder Max Dehne, have achieved something many Irish start ups only dream of. They fully funded their Kickstarter campaign in under 24 hours.

I spoke to Will to hear about his experience of starting Toc Watch and his advice for making your own Irish Kickstarter success story.

No thicks, in fairness.

    Rodina and Tissell have been making this watch for yonks. Even their product is a copy of a very nice Nomos watch with a cheaper chinese Seagull movement.
    The Nomos watch is a beautiful piece, in house developed movement, Quality leather strap. The entrepreneuring here is simply marketing a cheaply produced chinese product.

    I got an Imbue on Kickstarter.
    A year late.
    Scalded many people.
    But not me.
    I hope these do better…It’s a lovely watch

    The funding levels are too high.

    Tpyical Irish startup..

    As for the UX – why not just download the watchfaces? USP is too restrictive.

    Plus in the age when we’re moaning about battery life, handwound?
