The term “420Waldos” originates from a story dating back to 1971 when five friends from Marin County, California would meet every day after school at 4:20pm to smoke cannabis, and decide what mischief they might get into that afternoon. Their classmates coined them the “420Waldos” and thus the 420 moniker was born. Today 420 is a globally recognized term representing cannabis. The Waldos’ story and the growing cannabis movement in the U.S. inspired the 420Waldos watch collection. The 420Waldos brand strives to advocate for public and political support of cannabis legalization, education, and continuing research. The belief that EVERY adult from coast to coast should be provided access to safe and legal cannabis has led the brand to support this effort by donating a portion of the proceeds from every watch sale to organizations working to change cannabis laws. The 420Waldos™ watch brand features a revolutionary new illumination technology – Visible247 – with miniature light receptive crystals molded into polymer watch dials that results in the highest performing photo luminescent injection molded polymers ever created. When exposed to any light source for 10 minutes, the 420Waldos watch dial will glow in the dark for at least 10 hours. GET LIT!
