TACS are probably most famous for their Lens series of watches, designed to look like and be a homage to vintage cameras, with an absolutely amazing attention to detail. We loved their Vintage Lens II offerings so much that we've made an exception and decided to stock their best watch models in The Microbrand Store™. TACS are the only brand we carry that are not what we'd classify as a watch microbrand. They do offer the affordability of a watch microbrand, and are not mainstream or really known outside of microbrand watch circles, and have some truly unique designs that are incredibly well thought out. We thoroughly recommend them to microbrand watch collectors seeking an unusual addition to their collections that can be a great conversation piece.
TACS was founded by Yoshiaki Motegi, ("Yoshi",) a Japanese gentleman with an eye for detailed design that we think has helped set the TACS brand apart from many others. The brand is rightly proud of TACS' Japanese heritage, and state Made in Japan on their watch case backs, but it should be noted that although the movements on their watches that we sell are made in Japan, the TACS watch brand is run by Creative Choice Limited, a company based in China, with its own assembly factory and bricks and mortar retail store in Hong Kong, and staff based in both China and Europe.
