Ranginui and Papatuanuku were the first gods and they were perpetually joined together. Because of this the world was in darkness. Their children lived in the crevices of a dark universe. Tane, the greatest of their children and himself a God, forced his parents apart and in doing so, brought light into the world.
There was a time of great chaos during the separation and Ranginui was eventually forced up and became the Sky Father and Papatuanuku stayed where she was and became the Earth Mother.
The God Tane brought life into the world by creating all the forests and birds. His brothers and sisters once released into the light went on to become the Gods of war, fertility and all the other things that affect our daily lives.
The watch features a deep blue dial signifying the Sky and the inner gold bezel earth. The top figure is Papatuanuku with Tane in the middle and Ranginui below. Each lug features Tane.
