No B.S. Review
We're always on the look out for new “green” technology and I was recently approached by WeWood Watches to get my read on their new brand. WeWood is watch company based out of Los Angeles, CA and they are manufacturing and selling wooden watches! The wood used in the watches is recycled; all comes from pre-consumer flooring planks. The wood is free of toxic chemicals or any stains/finish, making them safe to wear next to your skin.
I was sent a WeWood Date in Beige to test out. The watch itself looks cool and the construction was much more solid than I had anticipated, especially for being made of multiple small wooden parts. It mimicked the look of a traditional diver's watch but with half the weight. Changing out links is a snap and it fit like a glove. Although the majority of the watch is wood, there is some hardware consisting mostly of a few screws, pins, the closure clasp and the Miyota movements used inside.
The timepiece is water resistant but not waterproof so taking it surfing is a no go. However, I can say that it is one of the most comfortable watches I have worn and it is certainly a conversation piece, I have been stopped quite a few times and people have been reacting to it.
With the holidays right around the corner I would highly suggest checking out the WeWood Collection (http://we-wood.us/). Coming in around a $100 bucks you can't go wrong and it's a way cooler gift to give than a gift card. As always, thanks for reading and be sure to tell a friend.
