SUCCESSFUL: Kickstarter: Tsao Baltimore - Torsk Diver

This Kickstarter launched earlier today and people have been jumping on this one!
Already fully funded and all the bronze super early bird slots have been taken, most of the steel super early bird slots are also gone.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ts ... orsk-diver

However, you can still get a steel case super early bird price for $350 (regular price will be $650) with 18 slots available
or there are still 35 slots for the bronze early bird price of $375 (bronze will also retail for $650)


The Torsk diver is a limited edition release of 846 pieces in either a brushed 316L stainless steel case (423 pieces) or a marine grade CuSn8 bronze case (423 pieces), each timepiece will be individually numbered as No. xxx / 423 (to pay homage to the SS-423 submarine, also known as the USS-Torsk).
Tsao has a site for this model at - https://www.torskdiver.com/

I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

This is really tempting me. It's also cool the case is actually a watch winder, too.

This looks like a great watch at a great price offered by a company with passion (for watches, history and naval vessels) and proven ability to deliver quality and customer service. This appears to be a diamond in the rough.

I managed to get one of the super early bird spots for the bronze. I was amazed at how quickly the number of backers was increasing. Hopefully they look as good in person. Now the hard part. The waiting!

Case looks similar to the Zelos. These micro brands are learning.......

Brand + story selling + packaging + innovative design + relative value = sell all you can make.

Really loving the look of this watch and have been going back and forth on if I want to jump in on it or not. I would love the steel on steel.

Tsao Baltimore are now releasing a limited edition carbon coated model.
Only 100 to be made.

Pricing is to be around $450.

As tempting as these are, I think I'll stick with the bronze version.

No surprise this campaign did well.

448 backers pledged $200,155 to help bring this project to life.

You can still preorder the watch at the Tsao Baltimore site for $450 or $200 off
