World's First Waterproof Wooden Watch: Exotic Hawaiian Woods

$56,681

275

Finally a wooden watch that can keep up with your active lifestyle!

This native wood is legendary in Hawaii, and is highly revered and even considered sacred. Koa actually means “Brave, Bold and Fearless” in Hawaiian. The warriors of King Kamehameha the Great created their weapons and canoes using this precious wood. 

This wood has rich red and brown colors with a delicate grain, and is highly respected throughout Hawaiian history. Milo was only available for Hawaiian chiefs who used it to craft their furniture, canoes, paddles and bowls.

This wood is a lighter wood, but can contain a kaleidoscope of colors. Usually it’s a golden brown, but other colors such as yellow with streaks of pink or black can also occur.

WARRANTY - 2 Year Limited Manufacturer Warranty

Pacific Standard Time Co. started when a group of diverse friends with backgrounds from Hawaii, Samoa, Palau, the Philippines, Japan, Australia and the US came together. They wanted to make watches out of locally sourced materials from that region, that don’t just tell the time, but also tell a story.

Our logo is an abstract Niho Mano. These shark teeth represent both “warrior” and “strength”. In addition it incorporates the traditional Polynesian weave design that bonds everything together - In other words, we're bonding all nations together in the form of unity.

Risks and challenges

As the wood types we use are precious materials; and we won’t cut down any living trees, timelines might have to be extended if demand greatly exceeds our expectations. We already have found enough trees for a first batch of watches and if need be we will start sourcing more!
