World's first waterproof wooden watch launches through crowdfunding
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 7 April, 2016 - Pacific Standard Time Co. started when a group of diverse friends with backgrounds from Hawaii, Samoa, Palau, the Philippines, Japan, Australia and the US came together. They wanted to make watches out of locally sourced materials from that region, that don’t just tell the time, but also tell a story.
Helped by crowndfunding they launch the first waterproof wooden watch capable of withstanding up to 100 meters depth using two differents Exotic Hawaiian Woods.
As the wood types used are precious materials; and they won’t cut down any living trees, timelines might have to be extended if demand greatly exceeds their expectations. They already have found enough trees for a first batch of watches and if need be we will start sourcing more.
