S2 Fire Wood Watch (34mm)
The S2 Fire Wood Watch tells a story of perseverance. On July 16, 1977 a fire burned through a mountain forest near Missoula, Montana. This small tree living at the fire’s edge suffered a non-lethal wound (black scar below the 12). New wood grew around the wound freezing a memory of that fiery moment. This watch reminds us that time is fleeting, but a memory can last a lifetime.
watch dials are crafted from thin slices of very small Douglas-fir trees harvested from forests of western Montana. These wood dials are hand selected for their beauty and unique annual tree ring history. With decades of growth rings displayed on each timepiece, hours, minutes, and seconds are juxtaposed against years. Underneath each wood dial sits a Swiss made quartz movement. The watch is enclosed by a high quality stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal. The origin year of the chronology, ~1936, is marked near the center of the tree. This year represents when the tree was a small seedling.
