The Surfrider Koa wood watch was designed to compliment your favorite island style adventures all while looking on point at your next board meeting (surfboard preferred of course). The original Hawaiians used boards made of Koa to ride the waves and became the first surfriders. When designing our surf watch, my goal was to create a beautifully simple but robust Koa watch that could keep up through your whole day...whether surfing or just lying in the hammock.
Stainless Steel, PVD Coated (Black Version)
SR626SW or 377
The Surfrider's design encorporates details that bring to mind Hawaii's favorite pastime...and possibly best invention (I might be biased). My intention for the Surfrider was to excel no matter the venue...It looks on point dressed to the 9's or dressed down to your boardies. It can accompany you out to the lineup or into the boardroom (surfboard preferably). The design details draw from the sport of kings...check out the details below.
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.
Here's a few more pics from every conceivable missing angle to wet your appetite.
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, mineral crystal, Japanese movement and oversized buckle.
I don’t remember how I came upon Pono Woodworks a number of years ago… but I am so thankful I did. They are the, put simply, the greatest watches ever made- their looks, the feel, the craftsmanship- I would take a Pono Woodwork watch over any high end $$$ watch. There is no comparison. I own three and can’t wait till I catch my eye on another one.
Great watches with unique look!
The Surfrider Blackout Koa Wood Watch -Limited Edition is a great addition to my collection. I have to admit, a while back there was an issue delivering my original purchase of this watch. After waiting, i lost my confidence in pono’s ability to deliver my watch so i cancelled the order. Since then, i see the company has stepped up their game when it comes to tracking and delivering the order when promised. As a business owner for over 20 years, it brings me great joy to see such an improvement. We can all bury our heads in the sand when things get tough, but Pono rose above and solved their problem. Look up the meaning of PONO and you will understand why this company is as succesful as they are!
Everything about this watch exceeds expectations!
This will be my husband’s 5th Pono watch. He sadly lost number 4 so this is a replacement but every watch has been unique, very well made and he loves them! His first watch was purchased years ago on a trip to Hawaii. The hands stopped moving about a year later. We called Pono, they sent a shipping label- repaired the watch and sent back to us no charge! The watch still works perfectly. This really is the best company and we will continue to purchase from them.
