Here at ASOROCK Watches, a name influenced by the breath-taking mountains in Central Nigeria, our love and affection for watches created a desire in us to make a positive long-lasting impact on the African continent, representing her in the luxury watch market of the world by been the first global luxury watch brand out of Africa.
Founded in 2016 by young entrepreneurs and watch enthusiasts Ben Iroala (Nigerian American), and Andrew Mutale (Zambian American), we sought to cut out the high retail markup of popular name brands.
We have been obsessed with watches our entire life and got fed up paying for overpriced name brand watches that only cost a fraction of the price to produce.
Being avid watch enthusiasts ourselves, we were fed up with our limited choices due to the inflated high mark up prices of popular name brands. It also didn't help that we always felt like our collection was never complete (a problem all true watch enthusiasts can relate to).
It bothered us even more that we didn't have a single watch from an African source where we have our roots. All these led to the creation of the ASOROCK range of watches.
Social Entrepreneurship has been at the core of Asorock Watches operations from inception. Asorock aims at leveraging business to provide aid to those in need with our mission statement to “manufacture premium quality watches as leverage to build free libraries in rural areas across the African continent”
Because, “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.”
― Henry Ford
By December 2021, we plan to lay the foundation of our first Youth Complex in a village in Nigeria. When completed, the Complex will have a library fitted with computers equipped with Wifi and free learning software and sports amenities (such as a basketball court) for the youngsters to discover their talents.
proceeds from each watch sold by ASOROCK goes to building a library in a village in Nigeria by the end of 4th quarter 2021 and, all names of those that order will be engraved on a "Thank You" Pillar in the library complex.
We believe it is our sole responsibility to help play a part into the restoration of the African economy. We plan for the youth center to be a place were kids come to learn, interact, share ideas and explore their hidden talents. The ultimate goal of building the library and youth center is to maximize youth development and close the gap of the unemployed youths of the nation.
That's why ASOROCK Watches is truly more than just another watch company, not only are we more of a charity at heart by using the sales of our awesome watches as leverage to achieve our core aims of helping empower the youths in our motherland and continent, but we are also seeking to create jobs.
WHY A LIBRARY?we believe that food aid and clothing aid are temporary but knowledge is forever. Just like the old adage goes "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime"
Not only do you get a fantastically made watch at an unbeatable price, but you also improve the life of an African child and, your name along with everyone else that orders a watch will be engraved on a thank you wall in the library complex!

HOW WE DO IT
To offer you fairly-priced, premium watches at unbeatable prices, ASOROCK took the direct-to-consumer approach. (D2C)
Our pieces are crafted from the same top-quality components as other premium watch brands. But we’re obsessed with keeping our supply, distribution, and advertising costs to a bare minimum. This allows us to pass far greater savings on to you.
And the quality of our watches is guaranteed — your ASOROCK timepiece is protected by an industry-leading 2year international warranty. Wherever you are and whatever your problem, we’ll make it right.
We could continue congratulating ourselves for our wonderful work, but we’d prefer you to experience the Asorock difference yourself. Our premium-quality watches are waiting to be discovered.
We're bringing transparency to modern watchmaking.
By pulling back the curtains, we're aiming to do away with industry short-cuts and cheap solutions. This commitment doesn't make us the biggest, nor does it make us the fastest growing company, quite the contrary.
But we believe that qualities like honesty and altruism are desperately needed these days, and that is a foundation worth building a company on.
We use the same materials and the same factories as $500 to $3000 brands, but we sell at a fraction of the price.
Some call it stupid, we call it fair.
When designing our watches, we did not hold back on quality. We made sure of 4 prospects that differentiate us:
