Why Our Watches are Made of Wood
Sep 17, 2019
In an era of Instagram and fast fashion, our clothing and accessory choices are increasingly predictable and unoriginal. Want to be a little bit more distinctive, though? Try a statement piece – specifically, one of our beautiful, handmade wooden watches.
We promise it will look great on your wrist and make you stand out. Why should you choose one of our watches and why are they made of wood? Well:
They’re Unique & Stylish
Each and every person on this planet is unique so why shouldn’t your accessories be, too?
Because all our wood watches are handmade and crafted from reclaimed wood, no two pieces will ever be the same. Each watch is a one-of-a-kind and is incredibly stylish, no matter your personal style. Whether you are looking for something sophisticated, classic, fun, or basic, we have a wooden watch for you. Regardless of the watch you choose, you are sure to stand out from the crowd.
They’re Eco-Friendly & Sustainable
Here at Urban Designer, we believe we have a duty to do right by our environment. This is why all our watches and rings are made with sustainability in mind.
In order to achieve this, we only use real, natural reclaimed wood for our wooden watches. This reduces waste during the manufacturing process and ensures that you receive a durable, versatile piece without worrying about our beautiful forests. Additionally, this means our watches are largely biodegradable meaning less trash in our already stuffed landfills.
We’ve only got one planet – it’s time we started taking care of it.
Have you ever gotten home only to discover your new watch turned your wrist green or caused some other skin irritation? Us too. With our wooden watches, this is a thing of the past.
Unlike many other watches on the market, ours do not contain alloys or chemicals that are prone to irritating the skin. Our materials also stay cooler than metals and are less likely to rub, scratch, or pinch your wrist, which equals happier, less irritated skin.
Who needs metals anyway? We’ve got plants on our side.
We wouldn’t recommend swimming with them or taking them in the shower, but you can take our wooden watches just about anywhere else.
Got caught in a little rainstorm walking to work? Splashed your watch while on a rafting trip? Terrified of taking it on vacation to Costa Rica? Don’t worry too much. Our watches are made to live in, and a little water won’t stop them. Bonus: you won’t have to worry about them rusting or discoloring like some metal watches.
All said though, be smart with it. Wood is naturally a little water-resistant, but it is not waterproof. Some sweat and drizzle is not problem, but full submersion in a pool…well, that’s a different story.
They’re Durable & Age Well
As a premier watch company, we understand how important it is to have a watch that’s built to last. We know you have more important things to do than worry about breakage, so we’ve taken care of it for you.
Here at Urban Designers, all our watches are made by artisan-craftsmen and professional watchmakers who are dedicated to crafting the best product possible. With our premium materials, sturdy casings, and premium Japanese Chronograph Movement, you’ll have a reliable wooden watch for years to come.
And the best part? It will only improve with age. Because of our materials, your watch won’t wear down – it will evolve. As you wear our watch, its color will change, gain character, and develop a nice sheen. Basically, it looks better the older it gets, making it a perfect piece to hand down generation to generation.
If you’re a fan of watches, you know how expensive high-quality timepieces can be. With our wooden watches, you can get all the quality and craftsmanship at a fraction of the cost.
Just as you can find a wooden watch to suit every style, you can find one to suit any budget. We have everything ranging from $40 to $160, so you’re sure to find a price point that works for you. Wanting one of our higher-dollar items? We have plenty of sales to make sure we give you the best wooden watches at the best price.
No matter how much you spend though, rest assured that you are getting the same quality you expect. We don’t believe that quality and affordability are mutually exclusive, and we want to show you that. That’s why we welcome you to try our watches with a full satisfaction guarantee. If you end up unhappy for any reason though, we offer a full, 30-day money-back guarantee!
They’re Great Gifts
If you’re stuck on the perfect gift to give to someone you love, one of our wooden watches is sure to fit the bill. Not only are our wooden watches durable, stylish, sustainable, and affordable, they’re also available for personalization!
