ISLAND INSPIRED DESIGN
Inspired by Pele's awesome spectacle, the Fissure 8 Automatic draws the inspiration of its shape from the crater created around the eruption. A raised lip and eased slope into the cauldron (watch face) are inspired from my drawings watching the fissure 8 eruption. The watch face stylistically represents the relationship between the land, ocean and lava flow...the cycle of life and creation in Hawaii.
A BIT MORE ON THE DESIGN...
When watching the eruption in Hawaii, you get the feeling you're peeking into the interworking of the universe...or at least our corner of it. The sprouting of land from the ocean, the greening of the lava flows over centuries, the drama and force of the eruption, all reinforce the interplay between the elements. The abalone, koa wood and lava colored minute hands symbolically bring together the elements.
For me, the design is a reminder of how quickly our time passes by comparison...giddy up, get after it, and get to the fun stuff before time runs out.
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 women's Fissure 8 has a 34mm case. This fits most everyone's wrists without looking too big or too small...certainly the most versatile of watch sizes.
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 automatic movement.
This watch is gorgeous, I've been wearing it every day.
I received this beautiful Koa and abalone watch for my birthday. Not only is it beautiful to look at but it is also fun to watch the tiny gears and my movement power the watch. Truly beautiful; I am thrilled.
A stunning watch I got this for my wife as a five year anniversary gift (bc of the wood). She is in love with it.
I get so many compliments on this watch. It is truly beautiful and unique.
Love the visible movement on the back!
The Fissure 8:watch arrived as promised in a colorful shipping container. It was securely packed in a unique soft sided storage case. Once removed from the case, the beauty and quality of the workmanship was quickly recognizable. The finish of the watch's face is impeccable... a beautiful piece of art. The watch's movement is smooth, noiseless and a pleasure to watch. The band is soft and fits well on the wrist. The Pono Woodworks is a quality organization providing high quality works of art at reasonable prices.
