"Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time..."- Colossians 4:5
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
Savior Watches (http://www.oursaviorwatches.com), the very first Christian based luxury wooden watch brand announced today the pre-launch of their very first wrist watch “Rejoice,” which will make its debut on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com) this summer. Savior’s “Rejoice,” features Miyota Precision Quartz Movement (chronograph), scratch resistant mineral crystal, an onyx face with gold accents, with the casing and band made out of wood used and referenced in the Holy Bible.
Sonny Sandoval, the lead singer of the band Payable on Death- P.O.D. stated, "I'm proud to come along side Savior Watches and be a part of the good work they are doing. Not only are they providing a quality product for watch lovers everywhere but their charity work will accomplish amazing things in my very own community."
Ruben Torres, Marketing Director and co-founder of Savior Watches says, “Savior Watches carefully researched which types of woods will be used for the watches and found a supplier willing to work with us to get them made. Finding the supplier in Israel was not an easy task for us but thanks to God, we were able to find one who has the various types needed such as Bethlehem Olive Wood, Ebony, Carob, Cypress, etc…The best part of the relationship with both the supplier and manufacturer is the fact that they are both Christian based companies and will work carefully to ensure that Savior Watches are completed at their highest quality and potential."
Kassim Osgood of the San Francisco 49ers said, “I came into Savior Watches for the sole purpose of the work they are trying to accomplish. The fact that they are using a Christian based wood supplier from Israel and a Christian based manufacturer to make the products gives you more of a sense of authenticity to the goods produced. To see the types of woods they used in the old times is a very humbling experience.” Bethlehem Olive Wood is the very same wood King Solomon used for the front doors of the First Temple of Jerusalem due to its unique pattern, heaviness and density.
“And for the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of olive wood: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.”- I Kings 6:31
Back in the Old and New Testament times, Ebony was used as a term of payment due to its rareness.
“Merchants came to you from Dedan. Numerous coastlands were your captive markets; they brought payment in ivory tusks and ebony wood.”- Ezekiel 27:15
Woods like Bethlehem Olive Wood and Ebony are the perfect types of wood to use for the Savior Watches line and are both unique. “We created this brand with the main goal of building God’s church by attempting to bring in new believers of Christ. Along with using woods imported from Nazareth, on the backs of each watch, we engraved encouraging passages from the Holy Bible as well as including strong passages on the packaging itself,” says Torres. “…It’s only fitting that we create luxury watches made out of high grade wood from the Holy Land with God’s words engraved on them so we could literally allow people to walk with the wisdom of God on their wrists.”
The passage of the bible Savior Watches uses frequently is:
"Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time."
Blake Popejoy, co-founder of Savior Watches said, "We are not just a watch company, we are fishers of men attempting to gain more brothers and sisters through the love of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Along with our wooden watches, we set up a blog as well as an online social ministry which allows guests to read and view powerful testimonies from celebrity actors, athletes, musicians as well as the Savior staff on Facebook and Twitter. These are all testimonies thousands of people could relate to and give them hope to any struggle that may occur which may include addictions, temptation, greed, etc…" Along with testimonies comes prayer requests which Savior Watches provides on a weekly basis, but the ultimate goal for which the brand was created is to help a Chula Vista based pastor find a building of his own. Currently, the pastor preaches inside a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu studio in Chula Vista, CA. Each Saturday along with the help of his associate pastor, he enters the studio to clean up, lay down the carpet so shoes do not damage the mats, sets up the chairs, sound, etc…Then after service, he cleans up, rolls the carpets back up and places them back in storage along with stacked chairs, etc…“Each week I see this man preach the word of God and he does it all with a loving smile on his face and each week more people wish to attend which is why we created this brand…to help this man have a place of his own where the set up is already done!” Torres explained.
"With every sale of a Savior Watches, a percentage/tithe will go directly to this pastor who does not know we are doing this for him…His family and other church members have no clue as well and will be completely surprised when staff members issue off the first percentage of sales during the next quarter season.” The Kickstarter campaign will initially give pledgers the opportunity to not only have a piece of biblical history on their wrists, but also walk with God’s words and help build a stronger church. Pledgers will be able to get a Savior “Rejoice" Watch at a special promotional rate with different pre-order stages starting with the early birds who place their orders first. Torres says "We are taking luxury watches to a whole different level with each custom piece made. Our customers will have a sense of enlightenment when wearing our watch which has it’s own unique design. Savior Watches will continue to grow and build a brand that will have a strong impact within the masses and the industry."
