OCEANIA WATCH- MILO WOOD
OCEANIA WATCH- MILO WOOD
THE WORLD'S FIRST & ONLY WATER RESISTANT WOODEN WATCH
The Oceania by Pacific Standard Time Company is made from exotic Hawaiian woods grown on the Big Island of Hawaii and Oahu. These watches use only wood harvested from fallen trees. Not a single tree was cut down to make these.
This is also the world's first and only water resistant wooden watch. We made it this way for those "Just In Case" moments, for example:
-Just in case you go into the ocean or pool forgetting you have it on.
-Just in case you fall into water.
-Just in case you leave it on while washing dishes.
-Just in case it's extremely humid so your glass does not fog.
We designed these watches 100% from scratch in Southern California and created a stainless steel inner housing to protect the Swiss movement inside. This is NOT your typical wooden watch... this is a wooden watch beefed up on steroids and is definitely tough.
This wood has rich red and brown colors with a delicate grain, and is highly respected throughout Hawaiian history. Brought to Hawaii by early Polynesians, Milo was considered sacred and only available for Hawaiian chiefs who used it to craft their furniture, canoes, paddles and bowls. In Tahiti, Milo Wood is used for the to'ere (slotted wooden drum), used in traditional tribal drumming. Milo was also used for the Rongorongo tablets of Easter Island (Rapa Nui). In Samoa, Milo Wood was used for wooden drums (Pate). The smaller ones were beaten with two sticks above all during a war to warn the enemy and alert the fighting men of approaching danger. It was also used in the Samoan culture to call village meetings.
What makes this wood even cooler is the more you wear it, you do not have to worry about it fading. Instead, the natural oils your body produces makes the patina richer while wearing it. We topped this watch off with scratch resistant sapphire crystal, the hardest glass to use for wristwatches to make sure your face is clean and visible at all times.
