Our case, case back, clasp, crown, and quick release spring bar pin are all made from 316L stainless steel which is a steel alloy that is known for is strength and corrosion resistance. The same steel is used in jet engines and military tanks. Our watch crystals are made from Sapphire which is a top of the line crystal and is know for its scratch and shatter resistance. Sapphire is next to diamond on the hardness scale and is rated a 9 out of 10 for hardness.
For the movements, the heart of the watch, we partnered with a Swiss company called Ronda. Ronda has a long track record and reputation of offering reliable, accurate, and quality timepieces. Our straps are made from top grain Italian leather; the best you can get. The are vegetable tanned which allows them to wear naturally over time. The more you wear them, the more comfortable they get.
Our watch dials are made from all natural wood or bamboo. Our wood is responsibly sourced and replenished. We use wood because it makes each individual watch unique. Each wood grain pattern is different from the last. We love promoting individuality. Each watch comes with a quick release spring bar pin wich makes changing bands quick and simple. Each watch will also come with an extra silicone sports band for water and sporting activities.
