“Going to the woods is going home.”
― John Muir
In 1867, John Muir decided to go on a walk of about 1,000 miles from Kentucky to Florida. He had no specific route chosen, except to go by the "wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way I could find." His book, A Thousand-Mile Walk to the Gulf, was the first of his many books that captured the essence of the American wilderness. Muir’s spirit of adventure and exploration eventually led him West, where he was instrumental in founding Yosemite National Park and the Sierrra Club.
Today, more than 100 years later, Muir’s impact lives on as a modern generation of environmentalists and policy makers grapple with what it means to protect our natural world. While some question whether Muir’s vision of pristine wilderness still makes sense in our diverse and integrated world, there’s no doubt regarding Muir’s legacy for helping future generations appreciate the serene beauty of unspoiled wilderness.
That same spirit of unspoiled wilderness can be captured and shared for generations with our collection of bespoke watches. See for yourself the timeless beauty and one-of-a-kind craftsmanship of our unique pieces.
