Palm Trading Co. Visits the Caribbean Island of Jamaica to Design Their Jamaica Series Island Style Wood Watch

“Jamaica Series Wood Watch”
Just recently the Palm Trading Co. crew visited Jamaica in the Caribbean to get inspiration on the design of their Jamaica 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.

The Palm Trading Co. crew recently visited the island of Jamaica and immediately fell in love with the island as it has a lush topography of mountains, rainforests and reef-lined beaches, not to mention some of the nicest locals we have hung out with.   The crew soon noticed that the island is known as the birthplace of reggae music, for producing fine rum and for growing blue mountain coffee.   The beauty of the island is unbelievable and the culture that exists is like nothing you will find on any other island. 

Alford stated that “After the Palm Trading Co. crew returned from Jamaica, the team designed the Jamaica Series island style watch using red sandalwood and black sandalwood as it reminded them of the colors of the fine rum and blue mountain coffee that is so prevalent on the island.  In addition, the overall design of the watch was created with the beats and tunes of the reggae music that can be heard playing all over the island in mind.  Our goal was for this timepiece to remind people of all the natural beauty and culture that the island of Jamaica has to offer.”
