I can’t find Todd’s website either. All links go to that other page

I sent a DM to Todd on IG. Hopefully we’ll get some clarification

I just tried to send him an email but it bounced back as address not found.
I doubt Todd sold the name-I’ve seen those exact watches before, they remind of a spinnaker, but anyways look like they just took the name.
Unfortunately it seems that the original Aegir is official dead-no email, no website etc.

What a shame. Hope Todd is doing ok.

That is a shame. That new company is linking his redirecting his website to theirs too.

The brand or the name? Because that site you linked to is definitely not a continuation of Todd’s work, that’s for sure.

Clarification - the company registered name and trademarked it. Solar Time owns the name now…

I was correct then as I said above that the watches reminded me of Spinnaker. Solar Time Limited is who owns Spinnaker amongst many other brands.

That is what I was thinking. Just a rebranded Spinnaker.

I don’t want to dog on spinnaker. I’ve reviewed many and they have their place. But to see this what happened to the Aegir name is just heartbreaking.

Has anyone had any contact with Todd at all? I hope he is doing ok.

when he was making the buckles he told me he had way to many things going on to dedicate time to watches. i think he was also building a new house. he was up against a wall price wise when the aussie dollar was worth so little but he was paying top dollar to european part manufactures. so i guess loosing money didn't sound inviting anymore. :shrug:

Damn!
I saw Aegir on Kickstarter, and was confused over the name.
Too bad, but I guess Todd was able to get something out of the deal.

The kickstarter was canceled.. Is that what you saw?
