You can dress a surfrider in a suit but he's still laid back island style at the core. We took the same tack with our popular Surfrider watch and added a beautiful leather band to achieve a causual island style vibe. Not quite suit territory...call it an aloha shirt and your best dress slippahs.
We design and hand finish our Hawaiian koa wood in our small shop in Honolulu, Hawaii. We use only the most amazing "curly" grained Koa from the Big Island...the most rare, beautiful, and expensive.
The Boardroom's design idea was to excel no matter the venue. It looks on point dressed up or dressed down to your boardies. It can accompany you out to the lineup or into the boardroom...surfboards preferably. The design elements draw from the sport of kings...The lugs are stylized surfboard fins and the crown protectors are the shape of converging waves. Finally, our best "curly" grained Koa wood, hand finished in our shop in Honolulu, ensures the face becomes the crowning jewel.
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 scratch proof glass, Japanese movement and butterfly clasp.
I love this watch. I like the rubber band which provides me the sporty look I wanted and the koa of course for the Hawaiiana touch. Keep doing what you're doing. I read about you and your company...way to do things right....and Pono!
I bought the Surfrider first, and got the Boardroom for my husband. We love it very much. The boardroom comes with a black rubber strap, what a bargain!
I got the boardroom with the black leather strap and it's gorgeous. I always wanted a Koa wood watch but didn't like the lightweight feel and they aren't dressy enough to wear for business casual. The boardroom absolutely nails it, it can be dressed up or worn casually.
I plan to buy another as a gift.
The customer service was great, Brett responded to my email right away and even included a personal note on my receipt.
I love the watch! It looks amazing and unique, it can be casual and dressy, and it is beautifully made. Can't wait to get another from Pono.
I bought this watch for my husband for Valentines day. The craftsmanship is fantastic. Brett does a beautiful job. He even sent us an extra band in case my husband wanted a different look. When my husband wore it the first time he noticed the clasp on the leather band wouldn't stay closed. I contacted Pono and Brett said he would send a replacement out right away. Quite a few people have commented on how beautiful and unique the watch is. If you want real craftsmanship and not a watch that is made by the hundreds buy these watches. Thanks Brett so much. You made our valentines day even better.
