We recently partnered with the digital publication Cool Hunting, traveling to Zambia to support the Mfuwe Secondary School.

We joined Josh Rubin and Evan Orensten, founders of Cool Hunting, along with a group of the readers and traveled to Zambia to embark on a safari.
The trip was one of discovery, inspiration and engagement.
They connected with the local community, engaged with the students at the Mfuwe Secondary School and immersed themselves in the culture and surroundings of the South Luangwa National Park.

We donated 800 custom designed watches to the Mfuwe students which were their first watch.
Our solar powered watches are ideal for Zambia since the area relies heavily on solar energy.
