Klokers Klok-08 Watch Watch Releases

Klokers will soon launch their new watch on Kickstarter, the Klok-08, which is inspired by the '60s and proves to be a great option for both women and men. The creative and audacious 1960s broke the rules. We swapped long dresses for mini-skirts, we listened to pirate radio, and we disobeyed with a smile. The winds of freedom whispered to everyone that anything was possible and that anyone could live one’s own freedom.

Klokers inherits from this spirit, and invites its community to live their time offering the freedom of use. Klok-08 is a watch-head that clips on and off on straps and accessories through a patented
fixing system. This unique system makes all the products compatible and interchangeable. It is up to you to create not only your combinations (colors, materials) but also your own way of using it.

Wear Klok-08 around the wrist, with a textile strap for a casual look, or a leather strap for a more conservative look. Or, customize your bag with the KWEL accessory. For a unique accessory, attach the Klok-08 to your notebooks or place it on a desk with the DESK&POCKET stand.

This new model introduces a new way of telling time. The dial of the Klok-08 is composed of two disks: one disk for hours and minutes, and one for seconds. These disks display the time on a vertical line at the top of the dial. Klok-08 flies in the face of the traditional watchmaking decorum and the disks turn counter-clockwise to indicate the time the right way up.

Its neo-retro design is inspired by the aesthetic codes of the '60s. Three different colored versions will be presented: white and rose gold; black and beige; along with warm grey and orange. Case diameter is 39mm. The colors and diameter make Klok-08 truly a unisex model, that will be suitable for both women and men.

Klokers uses state-of-the-art and innovative technologies to develop its Klok-08 and brand concept. The fixing system and time display are both patented, and the assembly architecture allows a Swiss Made product at an affordable price. The high technology components are adapted through extensive research and development to meet the requirements for the Klok-08. An integrated lens in the triple injected dial glass ensures high legibility when reading the time. The non-conventional and proprietary assembly process required an overall investment of €1 million.

Two years after its first campaign, Klokers will soon launch Klok-08 in October on Kickstarter.

A thousand models will be numbered and you can sign up here to be the first informed! You will be able to reserve your Klok-08 at €149 instead of €379 at the launch of the campaign. klokers.com

    …We wore kitchen scales and sphygmomanometers on our wrists – ah the heady, crazy, halcyon days of our youth.

      I admit, I had to google that.

        The word kitchen?

        • Raymond Wilkie

          No Halcyon.

          • SuperStrapper

            Lol, but the blood pressure meter in its full title and glory were no problem?

            I only knew because of family in the medical biz.

          • Raymond Wilkie

            i,ve thankfully never had the need for such an appliance.

          • SuperStrapper

            In time, my glaswegian friend.

  • Sam Soul

    39mm in size when the previous 01 was 44mm.
    I’m tempted…

  • Pete Pete

    I’m disappointed. no shitstarters for days and now this one? a nice looking, original, reasonably priced fun watch? gee. thank god there’s at least the bumford to make fun of.

  • Raymond Wilkie

    I quite like the concept of this watch even though the pictures above don’t give me a very good look at it ( better pic below ). 60’s inspired ? i can’t see it at all. The blurb that goes along with this watch is just absolute BS.
    ” We swapped long dresses for mini-skirts ( I stuck with flairs ), we listened to pirate radio ( That’s true, i loved Radio Caroline ), and we disobeyed with a smile ( To whom ? ). The winds of freedom ( Eh ?) whispered to everyone that anything was possible and that anyone could live one’s own freedom ” ( What complete nonsense )…………What the hell has all that that got to do with a watch.
    I would need to see this on at working before considering a purchase.

    These Klokers have a descent budget for “sponsored posts” 🙂

    • 200 Fathoms

      Very familiar with descent budgets…

      More efficient than celebrities from the nineties.

    Raymond likes it so I have no other choice than like it too.

    • Raymond Wilkie

      Whoooh ! their cowboy ! I said i quite liked it but on account its only in a ladies size i sadly couldn’t wear it.

      ps. How do you italicize text ?

        ps. How do you italicize text ?

        ” … ”

        • Raymond Wilkie

          ” thanks “

          • IanE

            Sorry, I didn’t explain very well. It is basically HTML; the quotes I used were merely so you could see the control characters. Before the text you wish to italicize, you need to type open angle brackets (the less than sign if you speak Maths!), i, close angle brackets (the greater than sign if you speak Maths!) and after the text (to close down the italics) you need to type open angle brackets, /i, close angle brackets.

            If one uses b and /b instead of i and /i, you can get bold characters, or , for underline characters, one uses u and /u. The control characters don’t show up.

            {On my keyboard the angle brackets are the shift key options above the comma and full-stop.}

    “What’s the time?”
    “See for yourself!” :))

  • SuperStrapper

    Reading that opening paragraph… where a 20-something hipster doofus waxes poetic about the 60s? Yeah I wanted to gouge my eyes out with a pencil. That was enough for me.

    • Gokart Mozart

      I pretty much stopped there and very skim read the rest. I got the size but is it mechanical?

      For 379 euros normal I should hope so. For 149 that would be worthwhile.

      Black one looks good, and a novel way of telling the time. At least its different and not a stupid size.

      • SuperStrapper

        Well… I won’t spoil it for you, but it starts with a queue and ends with warts.

        And I don’t mean the line-up at the whorehouse.

  • Too mainstream.

  • Mark1884

    I don’t want a watch that clips on and off.
    That is too hip for me.

    • 40 years ago (when I used to use circular slide rules), I would have been the target buyer. But the decades have accumulated, so former geek me can’t do hipster senior citizen.

        – – – – or quartz, when solar/eco is available – forget to replace those darn batteries.

        • Quartz? What’s that? Actually I do have a number of old quartz watches from before I started making my own watches. But now days here is only one (acquired in 2015) that I wear with any regularity – my Victorinox Inox – a great beater watch for those times when you don’t want to worry about banging a nicer watch into something.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    This is my favourite kickstarter watch. It’s simply a great, creative, fun and reasonably priced watch. I want to see more of these. Reminds me of the Crash Watch and the Tissots made of stone. Inexpensive fun watches with character.

  • Ranchracer

    Fun concept, but too kitschy for me and the quartz movement kinda kills it. If these guys setup sales kiosks outside of Fossil stores in US malls they’d probably make a killing with the millennials.

    • BJ314

      They are already making a killing. Welcome to yesterday. Please keep up. lol

  • Buy and Sold

    How does the battery generate enough power to move just a large disc? Quartz usually have to have ultra light hands?

    • High torque quartz movements are available. No doubt with a shorter battery life for the given battery – but still measured in years (sometimes up to 10 according to movement makers).

      • Buy and Sold

        Thank you.

    Did someone put the text through google translate a couple of times for a giggle?
