About this project
Hi, I’m Rob.
I’ve always been passionate about watches; the way they’re both stylish and practical, and the craft that goes into them. So when 18 months ago, I saw a watch marketed as “affordable yet high quality”, I didn’t think twice about the purchase. Soon after this, the watch instantly started falling apart. Disappointed, I started researching into the specification of watches. It didn’t take long to discover that many of these watches aren’t made well at all. Their specifications were very low. It became quite obvious that, being made this way, the watches were never going to last.
After talking with friends who also love watches, it soon became clear that there was a gap in the market for a well-made watch at a good price point, that looks the part and can withstand daily use. So I set to work, meeting with suppliers and experts in the watch industry to see whether it was possible. And after hundreds of conversations I was confident I could deliver on that very need.
And that’s how KLOK was born.
The Manual - The essential guide for Men has wrote an amazing piece about my journey and about the KLOK brand.
KLOK timepieces are designed and crafted to deliver on the promise that other watches don’t – high quality at an affordable price. Our objective is to create versatile watches that the owner never wants to take off, and can therefore sustain day-to-day wear. This watch is beautiful enough to be on display, but its unique, durable features make it so much more than for display purposes only.
We need 5 orders for this hunt to succeed so if you are in love with this watch like we are, make sure to join the hunt and share this with your friends!
Swiss Ronda Quartz Movements - Our single dial movement is No.763 and our dual dial is No.1069. They are widely regarded as some of the best, with brilliant reliability and accuracy.
Sapphire Crystal Glass Casing - Great transparency, and highly resistant to scratching. Sapphire glass has a value of 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, second only to diamond with 10.
5ATM Water Resistance Rating - 5 atmospheres means KLOK watches can withstand 5 times the pressure at sea level, without allowing water in. Meaning rain, showers and even the occasional swim are not a problem. (Please remember to swap out the leather strap, as these aren’t water resistant.)
Stainless Steel Cases - All KLOK cases are made from 316L grade stainless steel. Usually regarded as the standard “marine grade stainless steel”, it’s resistant to most corrosion, and is heat resistant up to roughly 500°C.
Quick Release Straps - Personalise your timepiece with our quick release straps. Plus, if you’ve chosen a leather strap, you can quickly remove it in favour of a waterproof strap when near water.
Anti-Reflective Coating - Our sapphire glass is lacquered with anti-reflective coating, blocking out most unwanted reflections and giving you a crystal clear view of your watch.
