NEW CALIFORNIA-BASED PACIFIC STANDARD TIME CO. CREATES WOODEN WATCHES THAT ARE WATER RESISTANT IN UP TO 100 METERS
Looking for a different way to do things, Pacific Standard Time Co.—a new start up that prides itself on its Pacific roots—has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its wooden watches that withstands water up to 100 meters in depth. The watches are made from fallen exotic Hawaiian trees, and come in several wood options, including Koa and Milo. Keeping with a sustainable business model, Pacific Standard aims to plant a new tree with every watch sold.
The start up has already exceeded its crowdfunding goal of $15k, currently sitting at a little over $17k, and has a little over a month left in its campaign. Here's more from the brand:
Wooden watches have been on the market for a few years now, but nearly all of them are not very durable and if you get them wet they're pretty much ruined. We wanted to create a wooden watch that could keep up with people's active lifestyles, and so we created our own.
The watch is loaded with a ton of awesome features, here are just a few…
· Swiss Ronda 5030.D Analog Chronograph Quartz Movement
· Power Saving Mechanism w/Pulled Out Stem: Reduction of Consumption by 70%
· Stainless Steel Inner-Casing
· Scratch-Resistant Sapphire Crystal
