Elegant, lightweight and eco-friendly. The appearance of wood watches today represent a lifestyle. If you are a wood lover, don’t miss this post.
Wood watches: a different style
Until a few years ago, making a wooden watch was impossible. The existing machinery did not allow for such fine work and making it by hand was as complicated as it was expensive. But with the emergence of innovative solutions, such as CNC router or laser cutting, now is possible. In a mechanical way it is possible to manufacture wooden clocks with great precision, better finished and less expensive (approx.. 100-200 €).
Unlike a metallic one, a wooden watch is much lighter and warmer. It is an ideal option for winter, especially if you are one of those who like the cold of the metal. In addition, the lighter weight of the wood and its neutral touch allows a greater freshness in summer.
But that’s not all. The main brands of wood watches want to offer a product committed to the environment. Based on recycling and reforestation, these brands look for these watches a differential value. One example is the Spanish Laswood, which collaborates with the entity Reforesta. In this way, for each clock he buy, part of this amount can be used to plant a tree.
Main brands of wood watches
If you are curious, these are the main brands of wood watches:
The Italian WeWood is the international reference brand. They design and manufacture wooden frame watches and sunglasses. His designs love both men and women. They offer endless styles, colours and types of wood, so it will be difficult to decide. In addition, they are easy to find in most countries and on internet too.
WeWood is also committed to the environment. For this reason, he collaborates with Trees for the Future planting a tree for each sold watch. They have already planted more than 400,000 and their goal is to reach 1 million by 2020.
JORD is another North American brand who manufacture and sale wood watches. Its originality is in the luxury of its details and the high quality of its materials. Starting from noble woods such as sandalwood, pink wood, maple or olive, they manage to take these watches to another level. JORD offers a wide range of models for men and women for any moment or occasion. Who said that luxury was only gold or silver?
Not all brands are dedicated exclusively to the manufacture based on wood. The legendary brand NIXON has added to this style, marketing wood watches that include metallic elements to achieve greater resistance. Models such as the Rotolog line stand out for their originality and their own retro style. The result is a wooden watch combined with unique and elegant steel finishes.
Nixon wooden watches are easy to find and their price is not excessive.
Another Italian manufacturer is AB AETERNO, a young company that has managed to unite tradition with modernity. Starting from a craftsmanship, each watch is made with high quality wood. Its designs, elegant and well finished, make these watches a piece suitable for any situation. In fact, the finish of some of its models can be confused with the metal watches.
All AB AETERNO watches incorporate the Swiss movement mechanism, which guarantees a durability and precision.
LASWOOD is one of the most environmentally friendly manufacturers. It has models for men and women. They also use noble woods, such as ebony, so little has to envy foreign firms.
LASWOOD is based in Madrid and if you want a watches, you can buy them through its website.
Finally, another of the great brands of our country: MAM Originals. These watches are designed in Barcelona and use woods from plantations with the FSC seal for their manufacture. For the housings they use recycled wood, handcrafted for greater precision.
MAM Originals offers a wide range of styles, finishes and colours, for men and women. Besides, they do not just make watches. They also make sunglasses and mobile cases, always using wood as the base element. In any case, it emphasizes the quality and elegance of its designs, being true pieces of jewellery.

I have a new le bois watch but I don’t understand how it works. When I am not wearing it , it stops . I always have to set the time everyday before it starts working. Is that how it works or is something wrong with it?
