ISLAND INSPIRED DESIGN
The design inspiration for The Castaway came from my time living on boats in the Ala Wai harbor. The shape of the watch case represents the bow waves formed from a boat or canoe underway. In the harbor, there's a small window of time when the night overtakes the sunset and a glimmer of copper color melts into the water. As the light fades, the winds usually calm and you'd hear the gentle sound of the water on the hull of the boat. The temperature is so perfect, you can't tell where your skin ends.
A BIT MORE ON THE DESIGN...
The sailing theme continues with the moon-phase window recreating the setting of the Mahealani moon over the Pacific. The crown is shaped after a self-tailing winch on a sailboat and the second hand represents the steering paddle if your sailing should be of the outrigger canoe variety. It's these memories that this design pulls from.
DID WE MENTION THE WOOD?
Koa only grows in the Hawaiian islands and we use only the most rare and beautiful "curly" grained Koa. It gives an iradescnese and movement to the wood. We hand finish all the wood in our small shop in Honolulu which ensures the face becomes the crowning jewel.
FOCUS.....THIS IS IMPORTANT
Sizing...The Castaway is a 47mm case. This fits most everyone's wrists without looking too big. It certainly won't be mistaken for a small watch but also won't look ridiculously rapper-esque big either.
No Worries!! We wouldn't leave you hanging. We're way too small to have angry customers. If something's not quite right...we'll make it right on our dime...whether you want to replace or return.
ONE OF A KIND, SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION
We design our wood watches and hand finish the Koa wood in our small shop in Honolulu. We've focused on small batch production so we can guarantee the best quality while providing a wood watch that is truly unique and rare. We use only the most amazing "curly" grained Koa from the Big Island...the most rare, beautiful, and expensive. We encase our Koa in an equally worthy case using a stainless body, sapphire crystal, Japanese moon-phase movement.
I got this for my husband as an anniversary gift. Hawaii is our favorite place to visit, and this watch is a great reminder of our memories there! High quality, unique design, and love the look with the silver band.
Bought this as a gift for our 20 year old grandson. He loved it.
Absolutely love this watch and I cannot wait to give it to my husband for our anniversary
Koa/copper/silicone navy strap great combo. May have to order other straps for different color combos to wear with different outfits. Perfect for dress up or down. Mahalo!
Saw this at the aquarium gift shop in Maui three days ago, loved the unique, beautiful design and decent price. Very glad I got it, figured out how to size the band, looked online and saw the cool story of the company and history of the wood. Today, sitting in my cubicle in the El Paso desert I'm staring at my watch and missing the surf. Thank you!
