Speaking of nice watches ...

I have no interest in this company beyond I just bought a watch from them, but here's the deal:

Very small surfer-dude Kauai Hawaii company that hand assembles watches from swiss movements and high quality materials for very reasonable prices with a goal of being every day durable (for surfers!)

Anyway, the company doesn't have a big production - i.e., you can get one when they get around to it because ... island time

In fact over 98% of the watch by weight is made up of only 5 materials: titanium, brass, sapphire, leather, and KevlarŪ.
