Untie the boat, cast-away the lines and leave the troubles of land life behind. The Castaway Koa wood watch was destined to chase new horizons... preferably ones with warm sea breezes and swaying palm trees. The Castaway was inspired by my free-wheeling sailboat living days while drawing the line back to the original Hawaiian wayfinder's and their koa sailing canoes. It's Hawaiian time, redefined.

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. The Māhealanimoon rises and illuminates the deep dark blue of the ocean. It's that memory that this design pulls from.
Koa only grows in the Hawaiian islands and we use only the most rare and beautiful "curly" grained Koa. It gives an iridescence 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
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.
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.
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!
The value on the products is the best I can conceive- excellent product with unimaginably good service.
The watch arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully! My son LOVED it and was so surprised. The watch is so good looking. It’s a great memory of our Hawaii vacation. Thank you so much.
Great watch. Love the quality and craftsmanship.
The Castaway watch makes me long for Hawaii time, especially during the cold Canadian winter.
