Palm Trading Co. Visits the Island of Puerto Rico and Designs the Puerto Rico Series Island Style Wood Watch

Puerto Rico Series Wood Watch
Just recently the Palm Trading Co. crew visited the Island of Puerto Rico to get inspiration on the design of their Puerto Rico Series island style Wood watch.

Palm Trading Co. was started due to the founder’s love of the islands and ocean.  Palm Trading Co. has created a collection of wood watches for like-minded island enthusiasts that will allow people to live the island lifestyle and to provide them with a brand that has deep island roots, style and craftsmanship.

All of their wooden watches are hand-made from all natural materials with the highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail.  From the different varieties of woods used, colors of the hands & dial, to the detailed logo design, each island style watch is unique within it-self and is sure to please any island enthusiast.  Each wood watch is designed and named after a particular island. 

When designing a new island style wood watch series, the Palm Trading Co. crew always travels to a new island destination and spends some time there learning the island, culture, cuisine and overall vibe so that it can be incorporated into the design of the island style wooden watch.  Palm Trading Co. founder Dallas Alford commented by saying “We are never in a hurry when we design one of our new island style wooden watches.  Our team takes the time to absorb the feeling we get when we visit a particular island and we incorporate that when we design a new watch series.  This includes the types of woods used, shape of the watch, size, and everything down to the finest detail.  Our goal is to have someone buy one of our timepieces because it reminds them of the island the wood watch is named after and allows them to live the island lifestyle all the time.

When the Palm Trading Co. crew visited Puerto Rico, they learned the island is a Caribbean island nation with a landscape of mountains, waterfalls and the El Yunque tropical rainforest and is inhabited by individuals with African, Spanish and Taino descent.  The crew thoroughly loved walking the streets of Old San Juan, dancing the night away to salsa, and listening to the coqui frogs at night, not to mention the epic surf.   

Alford stated that “After the Palm Trading Co. crew returned from Puerto Rico, we designed the Puerto Rico Series to reflect the island lifestyle and culture that we experienced while our team was in Puerto Rico.  Everything from the all-natural zebrawood to the colors found in the Puerto Rico Series was selected as it reminded us of our time there.  We hope it does the same for the island enthusiasts that purchase this timepiece.”
