Innovation von der baltischen Küste I Streng limitierte Kollektionen
Am Anfang steht die Vision - die Vision, eine Uhr zu erschaffen, die der Legende des Mustang gerecht wird und die vom Geist des Musclecars durchdrungen ist. Für die Kreation dieser Sonderedition wurde der eng mit der Automobilindustrie verbundene Designer Mateusz Przystal mit an Bord geholt. So entstand in aufwändiger Arbeit ein Tribut, das bis ins letzte Detail die Lust auf PS, Geschwindigkeit, Motoren und Bass versprüht. Mit scharfkantigem Design, einem extrem zuverlässigen Uhrwerk und weiteren Features wie der Graphitfarbenen, dauerhaften PVD-Beschichtung auf dem gebüsteten Edelstahlgehäuse und einer zusätzlichen Anti-Reflexionsbeschichtung auf dem Saphirglas.
Let’s start by introducing Bartosz Knop, the founder of Balticus. He started his adventure with timepieces a few years ago after returning from Iceland. More specifically, he was inspired by the company JS Watch, thanks to which he started searching for material to create his own watch face called Star Dust. The name itself was born on a nice Facebook watch group – Czasoholicy. This is how the idea was born! If he creates something for himself, maybe someone else will be interested in it? Thus, he started to build the first Polish watch brand from scratch.
Bartosz comes from Władysławowo, a small town at the Polish baltic coast. So the name naturally referred to the baltic sea.
The first steps were hard for Bartosz, unrelated to this industry he had never before learned from his own mistakes and was making some unexplored paths. After registering a patent mark for the whole European Union, he started looking for a supplier of parts. In 2015, he flew to Hong Kong to sign a cooperation agreement with a component manufacturer and thought the worst was behind him...but it was a tough design process. The Grey Seal was the first model of Balticus and despite many prototypes, they couldn’t avoid mistakes and shortcomings.
Outstanding ideas were quickly verified by the capabilities, lead times and delivery times. At that time, Bartosz didn’t know about it yet, but it took 8 months to prepare the final project, starting with a white sheet of paper. Despite the difficulties, long implementation process and huge financial outlays, Balticus managed to release the finished product. In this way, they entered the market as the new, indepenent watch brand Balticus.
