The Fissure 8 Koa Wood watch was inspired by Pele's awesome display of power in the recent eruption on the Big Island. There's a great polarity between the complete devastation fissure 8 unleashed and the beauty and power of land being created before your eyes. The first hand experience is not something you can easily wrap your mind around nor soon forget. It's a visceral experience.
The Fissure 8's watch shape was inspired from drawings I did at the fissure. There's a cone shape that extends above the glass and slopes back down to the face. The shape is a reflection of the conical shape that was formed around the fissure from the spatter of lava. The watch color is pulled from the almost black color of the cooled lava and the golden colors of the hot flowing lava. The hands form a small volcanic cone structure in the center as well and red lava pours down the watch hands. The Koa face reminds me of the random patches of surrounded forest that survived in a sea of hardened black lava...a truly amazing sight.

Ah, the Fissure 8. What a superbly crafted, unique, and beautiful time piece, right down to the case and even the packaging. I gave it to my partner as a birthday gift and he is thrilled with it. In planning the purchase online, I emailed questions to Brett who was thoughtful and sincere in his prompt replies. Ponowoodworks lives up to their name and their story. Highly recommended.
Nice design. Watch face is the perfect size, not too big but not tiny. The watch doesn’t feel like a Rolex, but the quality is good. A really nice piece of Aloha. I will be purchasing the Surfrider next.
He absolutely loves it!
This watch is absolutely stunning! The short time that it has been on my wrist has gotten many more compliments than any other watch that I have. Thank you for the awesome work.
Beautiful watch. Satisfied so far. Quality Miyota movement. Thinking of getting the Surfrider to have another style and a smaller Pono watch as well. The band is a little too stiff, hope it will become more comfortable with usage. Too bad it doesn't glow to see the time in darkness, I won't be able to use it for camping and outdoor night activities. Good ordering and delivery experience.
