Steel + Oak Watches represent people who overcome challenges in life. Imagine being in Hiroshima, on business, when the atomic bomb when off! The bomb destroyed the city but it didn't destroy him! The next day, now back in his home town of Nagasaki, his supervisor was talking down to him as "crazy". That's when... The other bomb when off in Nagasaki. He survived, and lived a long life to the age of 93. Tsutomu Yamaguchi, gets our grit award. Have someone you know with a story of perseverance? Drop us a line.
