Element Koa Wood and Bronze Automatic Watch--Limited Edition Silver

Regular price$525.00

Your life is a journey of experiences that mould who you are over time...we felt your watch should do the same.  Our most ambitious design yet, The Element artfully brings together a variety of materials and details inspired by the Hawaiian Islands we call home.  At home in the water or in the hammock, the Element archives your adventures in an expression of patina into the bronze.

  • Hawaiian "curly" grained Koa Face (hand finished in our shop)
  • 46mm Bronze and Stainless Body, Sapphire Domed Crystal
  • Miyota Automatic Skeleton Movement 
  • 26mm Full Grain Leather Strap
  • 2 Year Full NO-HASSLE Warranty... no worries, we've got you 
  • Free/Fast Shipping and Returns/Exchanges...we make it easy
  • Limited Edition of 100 watches

For those who don't geek out on watches, the automatic movement is powered by your movement and has no battery...just the pure amazingness of springs, gears and tiny mechanical perfection.

      Three years in the making, our first automatic leaves the movement's inner workings on full display while accentuating the Koa wood and Abalone watch face. The Bronze upper half of the watch body is removable and brings an element of patina and earned warmth. Removable you ask?...yes, take it off, polish it to a bright shine like the ship's captain you are, or let it patina to a warm and unique glow over time. The choice is yours. The Stainless Steel portion of the watch body will remain perfectly static to frame and accentuate the bronze's journey.


      An incredibly domed sapphire crystal creates a bold look by continuing the arc of the rounded design and harkens back to the binnacle compass housing of the Matson tall sailing ships. The top quality full grain leather band brings in the stitching details of a voyage of a much earlier time connecting alma to Koa canoe.

      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.

      Sizing...The Element is a 46mm case. This fits most everyone's wrists without looking too big. Presence certainly, ridiculousness not so much.

      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.


      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, bronze accent, domed sapphire crystal, Japanese automatic movement.

      I bought this watch for my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loves it. Great quality, especially for the price. Very unique and eye-catching. He has received compliments both times he has worn it so far!

      Saw this while in Kauai and wifey copped it for a birthday gift. It’s an absolutely incredible watch. Extremely comfortable and definitely an eye catcher. Movement is amazing. I would love to get other bezels if possible. This watch made me a fan of Pono Woodworks and I will definitely be following for future releases. Hats off to the team that designed and brought this watch to life.
