Koa Wood Face Castaway Watch - Stainless Steel Band
Untie the sailboat, 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 way-finderʻs 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.
Beyond the aesthetic design, the desire was to create a wood watch for men that never had to be taken off. The crown is inset the maximum amount to prevent rubbing on your wrist. The silicone band will stand up to whatever you throw at it and looks at home in board shorts or a suit. If you decide to take it off, the quick deployment clasp makes it easy without the need to resize the watch. The strategy seems to be working as the watch received 40 out of 42, 5-star reviews (the other two were 4 stars).
