WeWood Sustainable Watches: Wood is Good?

I'm a Canadian freelance blogger and math graduate student currently living in Taipei, with a penchant for French bulldogs, science-fiction and running.

While I’ve never thought about wearing a wooden watch, I have to say that these watches from WeWood look pretty good. On top of that, they’re made out of something natural, and you know, that’s pretty good, right?

WeWood is based in LA, but hails from Florence, Italy. They’ve designed two collections of watches that are made out of natural woods. The wood used in the creation of these timepieces is free of artificial or toxic materials.

They’ve used red wing celtis, ebony, maple, and guaiaco, and watch movements are made by Miyota. The wood come from scrap flooring that’s left over, so it doesn’t get more sustainable than this. Plus, for every watch that is purchased, WeWood plants a new tree in collaboration with American Forests.
