A timepiece with heart

Tells so much more than just time

Commemorate your time at Penn State while also enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer.

AXIA Time is proud to be partnering with THON to help raise awareness of childhood cancer and funds for Four Diamonds, a nonprofit organization that picks up where insurance leaves off, to relieve financial stress and provide emotional support. So that no family impacted by childhood cancer ever has to see a medical bill.

10% of all proceeds from the Penn State University Timepiece will go to THON.

Watches whose quality matches both the essence Penn State and the significance of this philanthropic endeavor.


One of the greatest heroes in literary history, ΟΔΥΣΣΕΑΣ is a man of intellect and versatility, strength and endurance. The Odysseus comes in a 43.5mm brushed stainless-steel case and is water resistant to 200 meters.

All purchases will receive BOTH the stainless steel and NATO straps.

Not ready to purchase a watch, but still want to contribute to THON?

The idea for AXIA Time goes back to founder John Kanaras’ time as a Penn lacrosse goalie in the late 80s, when his team won two Ivy League Championships.

The first time, each player got a ring that they cherished, but rarely wore. The second time, they were given a watch that, while it held great sentimental value, was not the best quality or design.

Ever since that time, he always wanted a watch whose design and quality matched the significance of his team’s achievements and the memories they created.
