Watches are a timeless tool and an eternally classy accessory. Of the hundreds of different forms of timepieces, there is one that is unique, beautiful, and honestly just plain cool. That watch, ladies and gentlemen, is the wooden watch. A quick look around the online retailers will show you just how nice these watches are. However, I would like to use this guide to point out four pieces that are sure to turn heads and get people’s gears turning.
1. The Hampton
This attractive piece is just about all you can ask for. This unisex watch is made from 100% recycled or reclaimed wood, making it a pleasure that is far from a guilty one. The face presents hour, minute, and second hands on a satisfying round dial, giving you a precise sense of time whenever you need it. It also comes in a variety of wood types, from sandalwood, to zebrawood, and even walnut. You’re sure to find a style that fits you well. It is priced at a very reasonable $229.99, and is worth every dollar.
2. The Small Leather Hampton
A smaller version of our previous entry, this little gem is geared to women. The face comes with minute and hour hands, and includes a nifty little sundial for the seconds. All three are shown atop a very nice, wooden face of which there are several different types of wood to choose from. Included in the wood options are walnut, rosewood, zebrawood, and sandalwood. Plus, the watch strap is made from 100% genuine Italian leather that is very nice. Starting at $214.99, this wonderful timepiece is both fashionable and affordable!
3. The Vermont Leather
This classy little wooden watch is the full package. A product of the new Tense Hybrid Watch Series, the Vermont Leather watch has both wooden and metal case attached to a quality leather strap. This great mixture of materials transforms the watch into the best of not two, but three worlds. This unisex watch comes complete with hourly and minute markers, plus has a calendar display on a square dial, as well as a sub-dial for monitoring seconds. As a pretty significant bonus, this watch also has a waterproof rating of 3 ATM.
If you’re curious about the quality of the inner workings of the piece, then I believe you’ll be satisfied to know that the Vermont Leather boasts premium Ronda 6004D Swiss Movements protected by scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal and corrosion resistant Surgical Grade 316 Stainless Steel finished with PVD coating. It’s easy to see why this piece is a bit more expensive, starting at $389.99, but I’d say that’s a price worth of the quality.
4. The Hudson
Another proud product of the Tense Hybrid Watch Series, The Hudson is a classy, quality watch that is a satisfying mixture of wood, metal, and leather. This men’s watch features a wood and metal case, along with a metal band. It also shows hourly and second counters on the main dial with a calendar display, as well as second counters on a sub-dial. The Hudson contains premium Ronda 6004D Swiss Movements protected by scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal and corrosion resistant Surgical Grade 316 Stainless Steel finished with PVD coating.
As with many wooden watches available, you’ll have several options regarding what type of wood adorns your watch. Options include Walnut, Teak, Sandalwood, and Rosewood. This is the most expensive wooden watch on this little list starting at $429.99, but the quality of the Hudson answers the price nicely.
