Final Touch TimePieces

Today i want to talk about a really cool success story from Nicholas White founder of FinalTouch Time Pieces!

Nicholas started this business in October 2020 during Covid because after running a motorcoach operation, which slowed down substantially during the pandemic for obvious reasons, allowing him a little more free time to diversify assets into his passion for watches.

This business consists in a limited inventory microbrand and luxury watch sales, as well as watch sourcing (because he keeps a small inventory).

Also Nicholas didn’t start this little business to really make any money though.

He genuinely get a lot of joy out of providing or finding a watch for somebody, especially somebody that is new in watches or has limited knowledge on them.

He also loves giving away watches to his friends or really anyone he feels is deserving.

A big part of Final Touch business is finding high quality microbrands to distribute to the public and hopefully create more brand awareness. Then make it more accessible for the average person to have a high quality watch without paying a premium for the brand name.

Nicholas wants to be able to make it easy for somebody to buy a watch without having to be a “watch nerd” to avoid being ripped off.

So he basically goes in and do all the dirty work and research so the average person doesn’t have to.

Nicholas is also the self proclaimed as the “robinhood of watches” because his goal is to go find the high quality watches and then distribute them at affordable pricing for the everyday human that just wants to add their Final Touch to an outfit.

Final touch TimePieces a passion story

Like Nicholas said before, this really isn’t about making any money for him, but rather just a combination of my enjoyment of watches and helping people.

He obviously just has to make money to be able to fund it! While inventory is limited, Nicolas is planning on expanding that side of it as he grow.

Nicholas has a few things in the works right now, including a collaboration with Mulinaro Motorcars, an exotic dealership in Charlotte, NC (his location).

The ultimate goal/dream, is to one day create some sort of charity involving this business.

Jack Turner Watches Microbrand

Today i want to present you the Jack Turner Watches Microbrand!

Some really interesting watches my friends!

Today we take a look to the traveller military pilot watch.

Pay tribute to the armed forces and the red, white, and blue in your own way with our latest release “The Traveler”, this is a military-inspired pilot watch. 

This timepiece is equipped with two different NATO watch straps so that you can change up your look as often as you’d like.

All the straps are lightweight and comfortable to wear while giving off a ruggedly handsome vibe. 

The Traveler Watch ensures that you are always running on time while keeping your look stylish, rugged and classic.

Jack Turner Watches Microbrand – a special pilot

The second hand of the traveller is perfect for precision timekeeping and the white Arabic numerals are easy to read. 

Silent sweep movement guarantees that all you notice is the good looks and timekeeping properties of this handsome watch.

It is powered by the Seiko VH31 sweep second movement that was introduced in 2018.

This movement is unique because the sweeping hands beat four times per second creating the fluid appearance of an automatic watch but with quartz precision and reliability. 

The black dial has two separate disks, one atop the other, that holds luminescent materials in the recessed indexes that show through the cutouts in the top layer thus creating the watch’s wonderful luminescence effect.

This clever sandwich effect is usually only seen on high-end divers watchers. 

The bottom dial on The Traveler Watch has recessed numerals and indices while the top dial is carved out to reveal a beautiful green Super-LumiNova® coating which ensures the ability to see in the dark out in the field or anywhere that you happen to be.

Offering up to ten times more brightness than other zinc-based luminous phosphorescent material this technology is normally reserved for luxury watches at much higher price points. 

You will also enjoy a sapphire glass crystal that contains 9 Mohs of mineral hardness which makes it resistant to scratches during normal use.

Of course, it is not impossible to scratch the crystal but it is very difficult although not impossible for scratches to result after rubbing up against a stone or concrete wall for example. 

This watch is in limited supply, only 150 pieces of this watch will be produced pre-order. Order now to lock in the pre-order, discounted price.

These watches should be available for shipping the first week of April 2021. 

The watch comes in really cool packaging as you can see below

A secure diver’s clasp (Ratchet Buckle) holds it together and screws in the links make for easy sizing.

Design wise we put our unique twist on the classic Jubilee style and came up with something different yet coherent.

Dial and Hands

Keeping it cool is the need of the hour and five carefully picked dial options give you tons of fun in these long and hot days.

The hour markers are laser cut and filled with BGW9 Superluminova for an extremely bright glow and enhanced visibility.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic Titanium Watch

Today i want to present you the Boldr Venture Field Medic!

Three watch-lovers decided to combine efforts to produce a medic-friendly chronograph watch that can be used to measure pulse rates and respiratory counts of patients.

Utilizing the ‘Venture’ model of Singapore-based watch manufacturer BOLDR Supply Company, the watch is available for pre-order today, with a fixed amount of proceeds going towards multiple COVID-19 relief funds.

The BOLDR Venture Medic Field utilizes an ultra-tough & super light 38mm titanium case, powered by a Japanese Chronograph movement.

The watch face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal lens and has clearly marked indexes and specific pulse-tracking functionalities.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic

It is highly durable with water resistance up to 200m, so there’s no need to worry about impact damage or getting it wet while washing hands. 

Inspired by the brave and selfless healthcare community on the frontlines of COVID-19, this special edition Venture is a medic-friendly chronograph watch that can be used to measure pulse rates and respiratory counts.

The BOLDR Venture Medic Field utilizes an ultra-tough & super light 38mm titanium case, powered by a SII VK64 Mecaquartz Chronograph movement.

The watch face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal lens and has clearly marked indexes and specific pulse-tracking functionalities.

It is highly durable with water resistance up to 200m, so there’s no need to worry about impact damage or getting it wet while washing hands.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic

The combination of the Venture’s ultra-tough features with a pulsometer and respiratory scale gave birth to the concept of a ‘Field Medic’ watch.

Built for healthcare workers and watch enthusiasts in general, make the most out this tough tool watch while doing your part in giving back for a good cause.

The mechanics are simple – easily count off heart and respiratory rates within a few seconds by using the precise graduated scales on the dial.

This saves valuable time compared to the traditional way. Pulse rates per minute are generally counted in a 15 or 30 seconds window; this watch uses a 30 seconds count as it gives a more accurate reading.

Simply activate the chronograph and count the specified number of beats, stop the chronograph at the corresponding mark, and take a reading.

The central seconds-hand will now be pointing to your required measurements in counts per minute. A clearly visible date window also saves precious seconds in the field, giving information at a glance while filling in pages of detailed notes.
