Palm Trading Co. Visits the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent and Designs the St. Vincent Series Island Style Wood Watch

“St. Vincent Series Wood Watch”
Just recently the Palm Trading Co. crew visited St. Vincent in the Caribbean to get inspiration on the design of their St. Vincent Series 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 St. Vincent, they learned St. Vincent is a volcanic island and is the largest of the thirty two islands and cays that make up St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As the island was originally formed as a result of volcanic activity, some of its beaches consist of black sand, with Black Point Beach being the most famous one.  The crew was both surprised and mesmerized by the black sand beaches because a lot of folks don’t realize such beaches exist in the Caribbean.  The black sandalwood used in this watch is for those that are drawn to the beauty of St. Vincent’s black sand beaches.

Alford stated that “After the Palm Trading Co. crew returned from St. Vincent, we designed the St. Vincent Series using black sandalwood as it reminded us of the beautiful black sand beaches that we grew to love while in St. Vincent.  We hope it does the same for the island enthusiasts that purchase this timepiece.”
