WeWOOD eco-friendly wooden watches


Your watch says a lot about you.  Rolex – kinda a douchebag; Timex – somebody’s dad; Casio – it works and fashion sucks; Tag Heuer – look at me, I’m a rock climber; a wooden watch – now we’ve got a conversation starter. WeWOOD makes these hypo-allergenic watches with no toxic chemicals, entirely out of wood (with the exception of the timepiece’s Miyota movement).



For every watch they sell they partner with American Forests to plant a tree.  The watches come in a bunch of styles and woods from maple to red wing celtis.  Some of the wood used is reclaimed manufacturing debris.  One of these unique wooden watches will cost you $119.  Just don’t jump in the pool wearing one of these…they’re not waterproof.
