Vince Tome began his professional career as an inspired student playing college baseball and studying Business Administration. Unlike many young dreamers, his childhood dreams of playing pro ball later came true. Vince went on to play professionally for the Collier County Loggerheads. This was for one season in the Florida Winter Baseball League.
As for his latest endeavors? Two Words: The. Lento.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Vince to ask a him what he’s up to lately.
In this exclusive interview with TechBullion, Tome will be discussing his latest work on watch band innovation and some other trends to look out for.
Please tell us more about yourself and your new innovative design?
I’ve spent the past 3 years designing spectacular closets, hand built furniture and specialty cabinets, and I started to notice that I was good at designing a lot of other things. Watches to be exact. Right now, Our team of designers are developing a watch band that slides on like a bangle bracelet. The watch is called Lento…Many understand the painful skin irritation a watch clasp can cause if the band is too tight, this is a common problem in the watch community. We’re developing the most suitable bracelet for the skin, crafted with sustainable and conflict free recycled metal materials.
What information can you offer for our readers today?
Crisis or no crisis; where you take your business is always in your hands. We, as individuals, can navigate our business at a pace that we choose. The biggest strength of an entrepreneur is having control. As entrepreneurs, it is our responsibility to remain flexible, think on our feet, and adapt to changing circumstances. Due to shutdowns, several leading brands and corporations are pivoting to accommodate the sudden change in the market. I believe that businesses need to stay sharp, proactive, and compassionate during these pressing times. These types of times are when Legends are made.
Watch brands have so many competitors, how do you plan to stand out?
Vincenzo Collection is not only turning heads, but it has become a household name. The name just fits, it looks like we’ve been here for decades. The company is working towards crafting exclusive pieces that are built to last. With well-crafted bands, gold accents, and sleek designs, we’re attempting to present watch design in its purest form. With our new design solving the issue of competitor clasps causing skin irritation, we plan to make a life-lasting impression in the world of watches.
