Gear up for gifting season with this holiday watch gift guide from Tockr
Tockr offers distinctive and affordable wristwatch options for anyone seeking a unique and high-quality gift this holiday season. Each Tockr watch is made with groundbreaking manufacturing methods, solid and reliable craftsmanship, and stand-out design. Tockr’s watches are meant for individualists who also like to align with socially conscious companies that give back.
Gift a sporty Tockr chronograph, a classic pilot’s watch, or a timepiece built with salvaged heritage materials, and for each watch purchased, that brand will donate a portion of sales proceeds to Team Rubicon. The 501 (c)3 nonprofit utilizes the skills and experiences of military veterans paired with first responders to rapidly deploy hands-on response to humanitarian crises, including a comprehensive Covid-19 response in hard-hit communities.
The Chronograph 4447 Lume
With the launch of the CHRONOGRAPH 4447 Lume, Tockr became the first watch brand in the world to combine hydro-dipping and luminescent material together, integrated beyond the dial into the watch case itself, lighting up the watch from dial to case and lume-stitched strap.
This innovative pilot watch makes an appealing gift for gear lovers who can appreciate the creative use of industrial finishes in exciting new ways. The Chronograph 4447 Lume comes in a choice of lume camo or lume marble hydro print and retails for $3,250.
Tockr designed the Skytrain to be the brand’s quintessential, classic three-hand watch collection. Aviation-inspired design elements remain in the watch dial’s crosshairs and the luminous orange plane that orbits the dial as the tip of the watch’s second hand. The watch comes in a choice of stainless-steel case, bronze case, or hydro-dipped case in a range of colorful immersion dipped prints and dial colorways that include sunburst grey, sunburst blue, sunburst green, or matte black. The Skytrain’s 42mm case houses a premium Swiss automatic ETA 2834-A6 movement.
The Tockr Skytrain in stainless-steel offers maximum versatility in wear and styling, packaged with both a classic stitched calfskin strap and a Barton Rubber strap. The Tockr Skytrain models retail for $1,200 and the bronze model retails for $1750.
The Classic Chronograph 4447
The Tockr Chronograph 4447 Classic is the timepiece for the man who loves classic pilot watches. The Chronograph 4447 Classic, with its outsized 45-millimeter cushion-shaped case, takes cues from 1970s-era pilot watches designed in accordance with strict NATO specifications, and offers water resistance up to 100m and a 42-hour power reserve.
The Chronograph 4447 Classic comes in choice of matte black, sunburst blue, dark green, panda, or silver accented dials, with a range of coordinated hand-stitched calfskin leather straps, custom hand-cut and stitched “Stealth Straps by HIX Design, or brushed and polished or PVD coated stainless-steel bracelets. The Chronograph 4447 Classic collection in stainless-steel ranges in price from $1600 to $1950.
The USS Texas
The 42mm Tockr USS Texas watch contains a salvaged piece of the Battleship Texas, a historic vessel that saw action in the most significant naval battles of both world wars and the world’s only remaining dreadnought. The dial features a luminous silhouette of the battleship, encircled by a portion of the USS Texas herself in the watch’s chapter ring. Tockr will donate select sales proceeds to the Foundation to help restore the warship to ship-shape condition and prepare it for a second life as a museum.
The case back bears engravings of the Battleship Texas Foundation insignia and a unique serial number. All watches also come with a certificate of authenticity signed by The Foundation. Two USS Texas watch variations will be offered, including a black dial model with a coordinated strap, each housing a high-grade Swiss quartz movement. USS Texas watches retail for $999 each.
The D-Day C-47
Tockr produced the D-Day C-47 watch series in partnership with the Commemorative Air Force (CAF). A portion of proceeds from each sale benefits CAF’s charitable efforts to restore and maintain “That’s All, Brother,” the historic World War II paratrooper transport that led the D-Day invasion into Normandy. Each D-Day C-47 watch dial has been crafted from salvaged aircraft material, removed out of necessity during the aircraft restoration.
D-Day C-47 dials vary from slightly worn Clean Cut surfaces to heavily weathered Stamped and Hard Worn dials, each of which preserves the plane’s original markings with special sealant under a sapphire crystal within a 42mm stainless-steel case. The watches come packaged in a keepsake wooden box complete with two straps: a drab green canvas strap and a brown leather band. Gift a limited-edition D-Day C-47 bronze edition (one of only 75 pieces for $2,700) or a stainless-steel edition for $1,990 (limited to only 500 pieces worldwide).
