Ventana Maker Western Flyer Watch
This stunning watch (no. 236) was created by Maker Watch Company in Ontario, Canada. We sent the guys at Maker reclaimed wood offcuts from our surfboard production and, wow, did they deliver!
This one is made of Doug fir from the hull of the Western Flyer, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck, Ed "Doc" Ricketts and crew chartered this 77-foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck published his book, The Log from the Sea of Cortez about the adventure. Learn more about this amazing boat and Ventana's use of its wood.
Maker Watch Company is a proud and passionate small business that makes incredible custom watches. They create a remarkable experience, unlike any other in the watch industry. It's an experience that doesn't end after you get your watch, but one that pulls you back every time you look down at your wrist or every time someone asks you about your Maker.
As simple as it may seem, there's a split second, a moment in time when you look down at your wrist to check the time, a moment of ultimate presence. It's that tiny moment that they make beautiful.
Whether you remember the watch you're wearing was custom made, get lost in the beauty of the wood as it catches the sun, or you find yourself utterly perplexed by the skeleton movement and all its bits and bobs, you'll love this heirloom time piece for many years to come.
