Island Watch Co. was started due to the founder’s love of the islands, surfing, saltwater fishing and anything to do with the ocean. Island Watch Co. created a collection of wooden watches for like-minded island enthusiasts that would allow people to live the island lifestyle and to provide them with a brand that has deep island roots, style and craftsmanship. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each wooden watch go to support ocean preservation, a cause that the company deeply believes in.

When Island Watch Co. was launched, we knew that we were going to give back to the lifestyle that our company was founded on, says Dallas Alford, Island Watch Co. founder. We are 100% committed to the natural environment that island enthusiasts love so much. To show our commitment, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each wooden watch is donated to Oceana, a non-profit organization that is focused on preserving the world’s oceans. Island Watch Co. and Oceana both believe that if we can save our oceans, we can ultimately feed the world. Restoring our world’s oceans could feed 1 billion people a healthy seafood meal every day. Alford continued by saying “Island Watch Co. is proud of our partnership with Oceana and is 100% committed to restoring our world’s oceans. We are not just focused on our bottom line at Island Watch Co. but instead focus on providing our customers with hand-made wooden watches that will add to their island lifestyle and in-turn allow Island Watch Co. to contribute to an organization and cause that we deeply believe in.”

It’s amazing the things that Oceana is doing and what they are accomplishing. Such things include: managing fishery populations in order to have sustainable seafood; reducing the amount of ocean pollution; protecting endangered marine species such as sea turtles; and implementing measures to reduce seafood fraud. All of us at Island Watch Co. encourage anyone that loves the islands and our oceans to check out Oceana’s website at and consider becoming a donor today.

Island Watch Co. believes that with the growing concern for the environment, people feel good knowing they are doing something to contribute to saving the planet, and an Island Watch Co. wooden watch allows them to do just that with island style. We sincerely appreciate each and every one of our customers as the sale of our men’s wooden watches and women’s wooden watches allow us to give back to something we deeply believe in.
