We work long hours but our spirits are in the mountains. Bringing a part of nature into our daily grind helps us look forward to our next adventure.

Durability and Sustainability
Traditional wood watches are either very expensive, and/or have very limited water resistance and durability. Having worn and sold wood watches for years, we were very familiar with the problem and knew there had to be a fix. With True North we have found the solution.
The Development Process
We wanted to create a watch that solved the issues of traditional wood watches, and offered the same features we've come to expect in every watch we wear.
- A strong band Anchor
- Water Tight*
- Reliable timekeeping
- Responsibly sourced materials
Is that too much to ask? We don't think so. This past year we have been working hard to come up with a design that solved these problems. Putting in months of after-hours work, long weekends, spending sleepless nights on the road, and even travelling near Hong Kong to meet with manufacturers and finalize our designs.

Whether you want to look classy, professional, casual, or are headed out on your next big trip, True North is just right.

Risks and challenges
Fortunately, we have years of experience with designing and manufacturing wood watches. As such, we understand the risks that can occur in the production process. As with any physical item, flaws not picked up during our rigorous testing and quality assurance phases are possible. That’s why Apache Pine offers a full warranty on your watch for 12 months.
We have planned for two challenges: One, that we shoot past our funding goal and having to deal with a much larger scale of production than we are used to. We have options for logistics lined up should this occur. The second potential challenge being an unforeseen manufacturing delay. If any delay should happen, we will let you know as soon as possible. You will still get your True North watch, but the timeline would shift accordingly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
