Every single POM Pizza Watch is an entirely one-of-a-kind piece... no two are exactly alike! All are made from upcycled watches that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

'Hummingbird' features a white, silicone wristband, a gold face and synthetic gems around the circumference of the face. This watch will fit wrists 5.5"-9.8" in size. The face of the watch is approximately 1.5" across. The letters of 'N-O-W' are gold.

I named this watch 'Hummingbird', because today... a hummingbird landed on my fingers. I went to my neighbor's house to eat dinner, and the hummingbirds were visiting the flowers on their deck. I placed my finger near the hummingbird feeder, and I was watching a hummingbird so intently that it felt like time seemed to stop entirely. Well, maybe it didn't stop -- maybe the illusion of time simply disappeared, because the hummingbird brought me entirely into the present moment. I could feel the air of the hummingbird's wings as it hovered, effortlessly, near my finger... and then the soft touch of its feet as it landed momentarily on my outstretched hand.

I've had one other time in my life where I had the opportunity to hold a hummingbird -- a time when I rescued one that had been trapped inside a house. That hummingbird - many years ago - willingly hopped onto my finger as I walked it out of the house and back to freedom.


The Backstory

A few months ago, I was looking for a watch that my husband had given me. I found it, but the battery was dead, so he took it apart to replace the battery. In a 'lucky' happenstance, he accidentally broke the watch while he was attempting to replace the battery... and the watch sat, disassembled, on our kitchen table for a few weeks. 

One day, we were staring at it, and I said, "What should we do with that watch?" 

Aaron, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "You should just write the word NOW on it." 

Instantly, an idea was born. I had worked with acrylic as a very curious child, and so I decided that I could salvage unusable watches and upcycle them into 'NOW watches'.

Please keep in mind as you wear this piece of art that while the 'watch' itself does not have any functioning time-keeping abilities... it is the most accurate watch that you will EVER wear, because it always has the correct time... because it's only ever right NOW. 

I hope that as you look at your NOW watch, that it will remind you to take a few deep breaths and to come into the present moment. 

Every single NOW watch is handmade by me and my husband Aaron using upcycled watches that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Each watch is completely unique and different and there are sometimes tiny air bubbles in the acrylic or slight imperfections on the glass or the surface of the watch.
