ISLAND INSPIRED DESIGN
The Surfrider's design incorporates 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.
A BIT MORE ON THE DESIGN...
When surrounded by water, you better develop a love for it. The crown protector's shape represents a building wave crashing around the crown. The hands represent surfboards and the lugs remind me of surfboard fins.
DID WE MENTION THE WOOD?
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.
FOCUS.....THIS IS IMPORTANT
Sizing...The Surfrider is a 42mm case. This fits most everyone's wrists without looking too big or too small...certainly the most versatile of watch sizes.
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.
ONE OF A KIND, SMALL BATCH PRODUCTION
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 standard buckle.
From my research, Koa wood is said to represent strength and courage, & the word Koa means warrior. The use of Koa wood in the Surfrider Koa Wood Watch brings in that masculine touch that is just as unique as the wearer! I purchased this watch for my husband as a “just because” gift. He does so much for myself and our furry four legged kids! A simple gesture of appreciation! In addition, I purchased a replacement watch band of a different color & material so that he could change it up every now and again. I can confidently say, Pono Woodworks is an outstanding choice for gift purchases, or frankly, something for yourself!
We got engaged in Hawaii and I knew I wanted to get my fiancé something special from there for our wedding day! This watch is wonderful and so beautifully designed! I can’t wait to give it to him on our wedding day!
This watch will be given as a birthday gift on 9/17/23. This will make 4 Feltner men wearing PONO Surfriders spanning 3 generations. Thanks, Evan Feltner
This watch is simply stunning. The size is perfect, and it never looks out of place whether I am in a suit at work or a casual dress on a Sunday afternoon.
I just received this watch as a gift. The watch looks and feels way more expensive than the price suggest. The only thing to be aware of is that the band is a little on the short side. So if you have bigger wrist, maybe try one on first.
