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 Dominica, dubbed “The Nature Island of the Caribbean”, they were mesmerized by the rugged landscape of blue-green slopes, rushing streams, waterfalls, and cloud-drenched mountain peaks that rise to almost 5,000 ft., giving the island a legendary beauty. The crew visited the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, which is home to the volcanically heated, steam-covered Boiling Lake. The park also encompasses sulphur vents, the 65m-tall Trafalgar Falls and narrow Titou Gorge.
Alford stated that “After the Palm Trading Co. crew returned from Dominica, we designed the Dominica Series using black sandalwood as it reminded us of the natural beauty that was so prevalent in Dominica. The island is without a doubt a nature lover’s paradise. We hope the design of this timepiece reminds island enthusiasts of the natural beauty of Dominica.”
