Introducing Outcast Watches. From Texas.

Welcoming the Outcast

SOMA’s talked for a while now about how we’re rounding up the best watch microbrands for our blockchain-based marketplace. That’s why we’re so pleased to announce that we’re bringing Texas-based Outcast Watches into our horological herd.

From Texas, with attitude

Founder and CEO Kevin Junkans drives a restored 1967 Ford Mustang and is a U.S. Army veteran. He enjoys unplugging from his electronic devices and getting outdoors. So, he created Outcast watches to be rugged, durable, and, well, not electronic.

Kevin says he wanted a high-quality (read: expensive) watch, but didn’t want to pay the expensive price tag. So, he carefully sourced the right partners to create his own, and he’s able to offer them at a fraction of the price of the brands he’d previously coveted.

Not only did he want a really nice watch; he also wanted a watch that could take abuse. Kevin says he doesn’t “go out of my way to treat them gently; I hunt, fish, shoot, and work on my car with the watch on. These aren’t delicate pieces of jewelry; wear the watch and live your life.”

Outcast presents its rugged build in a stylish stainless steel case with a Japanese automatic movement, domed sapphire glass with anti reflective coating, and premium leather bands with deployment clasps. Each watch also comes with a watch winder.

About SOMA

On legacy ecommerce platforms, anonymous usernames and depersonalized storefronts strip trade interactions of an important social element. Additionally, buyers lack a definitive way to ensure the authenticity of items. Enter SOMA. Our Heimdall Protocol stops forgeries and counterfeiting by validating ownership and provenance history on the blockchain. Social media elements bring personalization and interaction to trade, and allow users to monetize social influence, while a rewards system incentivizes beneficial collaboration. SOMA is a free-market ecosystem—free of market manipulation, price-fixing, gouging, and bloat.
