When Tockr was gearing up to release its latest model, the brand found itself in a quandary over what to call it. While mulling it over, they recognized that their creative block was, in fact, a unique opportunity. So, together with aBlogtoWatch, Tockr is dedicating the May 2019 giveaway to the reader who successfully dubs its latest creation. In addition, the winner will get a free trip to Austin Texas, along with ABTW, to take delivery of the newly named watch and enjoy some delicious local BBQ with Tockr, of course.
There are three dial variations for the winner to choose from, and Tockr will select the winning entry from the comments below.
So why is Tockr letting fans develop the name of its newest watch?
The latest Tockr piece is the product of a brand that actively listens to its consumers. The applied indices, subtle detailing, and no-date crosshair dial are the result of acknowledging customer input. The latest release is also a huge departure from the “C-47 Radial Engine” models Tockr carried during its 2017 launch. Since then, the brand has been both inspired and informed by the knowledge and passion within the watch community at large.
As an independent brand, Tockr does not squander the advantage of direct interaction with consumers. Whether in person or on social media, Tockr team Austin Ivey (Founder), Sophy Rindler (Co-Founder), and Serge Aebischer (COO) are listening to what people have to say. Since fan feedback helped guide the development of this watch, Tockr decided to take audience participation to the next level. And in naming this piece, one lucky winner will get to be a permanent part of the brand’s history.
Tockr’s yet-to-be-named piece is powered by an ETA-2834-A6, which is housed in a 42mm 316L steel case. The dial is viewed through a sapphire crystal and is available in sunburst blue, sunburst gray, or matte black. Each dial uses orange as the accent color, and there is a unique debossing of the minute track markers. The applied hour indices are luminous, as are the hands and the tiny aircraft at the tip of the running seconds. Each watch also comes with both a silicone and vintage-textured leather strap with engraved pin buckle.
The watch will retail for a special introductory price of $950 USD for aBlogtoWatch fans and followers. This special pricing will last until June 15th, after which the watch will retail for $1200 USD and remain a staple in Tockr’s collection. To learn more, visit www.tockr.com/products/no-name.
So what kind of name is Tockr looking for?
Tockr was inspired by the storied life of C-47 pilot Eugene Martin Xeres, Jr. Xerxes’ tales of aircraft-based adventure would go on to influence Tockr co-founder Austin Ivey in the creation of the brand. So, it goes without saying that a clever aviation-inspired name might help you get noticed. But that said, Tockr wants you to get creative — and a pleasant surprise could make your entry a winner.
