A broken deck rarely gets a second chance at life. Fractured, cracked or split, skaters can do little but shelf the broken relic. The vibrant Canadian Maple laminations seen between the splinters is our inspiration for the SK8 Rewound movement.
A moment in time, captured and immortalised, the decimated body of the board is worked down into fresh boutique timepieces using only the finest quality repurposed materials.
The rewound full body skate watch is made from high-quality expired Element skate decks sourced from local Australian skaters. Offcuts of stainless steel are delicately shaped to form the immortal chassis upon which the repurposed kangaroo leather band is stitched. The distinctive silver-plated skeleton mechanical movement is crafted by Citizen Miyota, famous for precision timing since their inception almost 90 years ago. Securely fixed with aviation grade fixings, and sealed to withstand incidental splashes this is a boutique piece designed for real-life conditions.
