Description

The USS Texas was commissioned in 1914 and spent 34 years in active service, participating in both
world wars. Also known as “Mighty T”, she was once the most powerful battleship in the world, and today
she is the last dreadnought in existence. However, corrosion and age stand to threaten that existence and
a costly restoration must take place to keep her afloat.
This is where Tockr’s partnership with The Battleship
Texas Foundation comes into play, with the release of
the Tockr USS Texas wristwatch.
Although Tockr watches are made in Switzerland,
the Austin Texas based company is known for weaving
U.S. history into the DNA of their timepieces.
Sometimes, that piece of history can be quite literal:
For the Tockr USS Texas, a portion of reclaimed metal from the famed dreadnought has been integrated into the watch itself.

In Partnership with The Battleship Texas Foundation

Each Tockr USS Texas watch will house a high-grade
Swiss quartz movement in a 316L steel case. The dial
has applied luminous indices and features a silhouette
of the battleship, encircled by a portion of the USS
Texas herself. Every portion of reclaimed material is
unique, so no two watches will be alike. All of this can
be seen through a highly durable sapphire crystal and
is sealed by a caseback bearing The Battleship Texas
Foundation insignia.
Proceeds from the sale of each Tockr USS Texas
watch will go towards funding the comprehensive
restoration effort.  Additionally, a portion of the purchase price
of this unique timepiece can be claimed as a tax
deductible donation.

Ever since 1948, the USS Texas has continued her service to America through her second life as a museum.
Generations of Texans have walked her decks, toured her passageways, and even stayed overnight. They have
come to explore a piece of our past and get a hands-on experience with history. By purchasing a watch and
supporting The Battleship Texas Foundation’s restoration, you can take that history with you wherever you go.
You’ll also be ensuring her legacy can continue for generations to come.
But first, there is work to be done.
