The problem this product solves
Today’s trends are increasingly moving towards customization and personalization, where individuals strive to create new looks and develop their own unique style.
So if you just like us happens to love watches, it doesn´t make sense that a single person, in order to keep up with the ever changing fashion trends, needs to buy a new watch every other week.
There must be a better way...
How the product solves it
The BOOM Watches concept is really simple: We offer consumers both a high-quality timepiece and the opportunity to create the perfect personalized accessory to suit individual tastes and styles, simply by changing one or more parts of the watch according to occasion or mood.
We give you the freedom to synchronize your watch with your own style by enabling you to design it personally. The watch can be changed and adapted to follow fashion trends and to suit individual tastes.
Watches are sold pre-designed and fully assembled, or can be purchased part by part.
By creating a concept where a complete watch consists of 4 different parts, each and every one of them interchangeable, we take the perception of the watch from being a purely functional item to being a high-end fashion accessory.
No matter if you change one or many of the different parts, you can always be sure to find the perfect watch upon every mood or situation.
By owning 3 pieces of each parts (dial, case, top ring, strap) you can easily create up to 81 different versions of a watch. Time and fashion in a box!
Product use cases
Early adaptors are fashion-orientated and keep an open mind with regards to new trends and influences. They use their watches to express their individual style and mood, and appreciate the endless combinations offered by BOOM Watches.
This unique versatility in no way delimits the target market, as the BOOM Watches concept suits everyone with an interest in fashion, from the young, hip and trendy crowd to the more mature and style-conscious individual.

Hrary Shnorhokian Sales Director & Partner
Based in Hong Kong, Hrary is a massive advantage when it comes to targeting the huge markets in South East Asia and Australasia, using his extensive local knowledge.
The distribution (B2B) will initially be focused on key retailers on carefully selected markets in Scandinavia and northern Europe. Initial markets for B2C are Europe + Asia.
Once established, we will begin the international roll-out that is scheduled to start during the first half of 2017.
Historically the watch industry has been dominated by classic watch brands with long heritage or fashion watch brands.
But following the trends from Daniel Wellington, Triwa etc the watch industry are moving towards having a watch as an accessory. The main difference between prestige and affordable watches is that usually people would own only one prestige watch, whereas, in order to suit each individual occasion and outfit, a number of affordable watches would be required to be swapped around to achieve the desired look.
There is a generation change in the industry where fashion brands managed to reach tremendous success.
