AXIA TIME has created an heirloom-quality timepiece exclusively for Tewaaraton honorees. Working closely with the Tewaaraton Foundation, AXIA TIME designed and created an ultra-custom Tewaaraton timepiece for honorees that will now be made available to all Tewaaraton Finalists.

“As a former student athlete, myself, I’m honored to help each finalist commemorate this incredible achievement.” said John Kanaras, founder of AXIA Time. “We were delighted to work with the Tewaaraton Foundation to create a bespoke and exclusive timepiece for its honorees and are excited to offer it to this elite group of athletes.”

“We’re grateful to John Kanaras and AXIA TIME for making these beautiful watches available to our Finalists,” said Andy Phillips, President of the Tewaaraton Foundation. “It’s only fitting that each Finalist has an heirloom-quality timepiece to remember this time.” 


AXIA Time creates ultra-custom, Swiss Made mechanical timepieces to commemorate life’s greatest achievements. Timepieces with styling and quality that match the significance of the memories they represent. The creation of AXIA Time was the result of founder John Kanaras’ 30-year journey to find a high-quality and stylish watch to commemorate his time playing lacrosse at the University of Pennsylvania. When he couldn’t find what he was looking for, he decided to build it himself. AXIA (pronounced ahx-EE-ah) means value/worth in Greek and is at the heart of the company’s mission: to deliver exceptional value and exceed expectations in everything they do. From the designs and quality of the components used, to the purchase experience of their customers, their intention is to treat people exactly the way they would want to be treated. Maybe better.
