Minimalist Luxury Wood Watches Made Out Of Waste Wood
Waste has never been so eyecatching. Our concept saves resources and makes high-quality timepieces that spark conversation affordable.
Raised in the heart of the black forest in Germany, the relation to nature can get pretty strong. For us, wood is one of the most multifaceted and fascinating material in this world.
In a early stage, due to some good contacts to wood manufactures, we recognized something curious: There are big wood manufactures all over the world, which all have one problem. Stock leftovers are super expensive as they hinder the supply workflow for following projects. As logical consequence, woods with highest quality, are sold below market prices, as if it would be waste. So how can we use it appropriately to its quality and value, to create a long-lasting product, which could be a statement people love to see?
As passionate watch wearer the solution was obvious. Probably no product is better displayed than a beautiful watch as a daily accessory. So lets design something beautiful out of it and make a statement.
By the way, one great side effect which appeared in a later state: As our concept based on using mainly materials which is traded as "waste" (although we are obviosly talking about materials with the highest quality available), manufacturing can be done far cheaper than many competitors do.
Our first collection, 2017, is designed in our hometown in the black forest, for several month of development. Our design vision was a minimalist modern look, that makes all models eye-catching and outstanding.
The difficult part was to get contracts with wood manufactures all over the world, providing us their exotic wood leftovers in bulk for fair prices. We finally succeeded by presenting our concept and first prototypes.
Meanwhile all incoming woods have to pass series of tests and are processed in a way, that allows us to guarantee a high quality standard. All other parts have to fulfill sector standards as well, to make it as competitive as possible.
+ Every watch benefits from its high quality, precise and reliable Japanese Miyota Movement. Since World War II, Japan is one of the worldwide leading watch movement producer.
+ To ensure lasting beauty, we have fitted your watch with scratch resistant crystal glass. It is synthetically produced crystal its hardness making it extremely durable.
+ Lastly, each watch features a durable butterfly clasp, that is 100 % hidden when you wear the watch. It features two stainless steel metal links for added security and increased quality.
