Wood you believe it – Wooden Watches!

02Oct10

We’ve seen the craze for brightly coloured plastic watches shaped like a classic diver’s watch (eg. our Ice Watch collection). Are we about to see this continue with these amazing wooden watches?

WeWood, an Italian manufacturer, have managed to make fantastically detailed and durable watches using only natural wood. What’s more, they have sound ecological credentials and say they will plant a tree for every watch bought.

WeWood Watch

This one's made from guaiaco, a tree native to South America, and pale maple.

WeWood watch in brown

This one's made from red wing celtis, a tree used for flooring. WeWood use the waste material from flooring manufacture that would otherwise be destroyed. How terribly right-on.
