Wood watches are a rarity in the watch world, but they are beginning to gain some popularity. Although still uncommon, there are a variety of well-crafted wood watches available for purchase. Like other watches, the quality and price of wood watches ranges drastically. Even with a selection that is far smaller than metal or other watch types, you should be able to find a wood watch style that you like and which fits within your budget. Shopping for a wood watch is not very different than shopping for other types of watches. To help you along the way, read below for information on five of the best wood watches available for purchase today.
WeWOOD is a giant in the wood watch industry, commonly creating the most sought-after and well-crafted wood watches available. Thus, if you are unsure where to begin your search for a wood watch, start with a WeWOOD. This particular variety is made from 100% natural hypo-allergenic wood. Totally free of all toxic chemicals, the watch is made from a beige maple wood, giving it a light, casual look. The exact tone of the wood depends on the season in which it was cut, however. Perfect for wear with a variety of outfits, the WeWOOD Beige Date Watch has analog-quartz movement and a fancy metal clasp. The watch retails for $119.
Similar to the previous version, the WeWOOD Date Watch is another of the most purchased wood watches in the world. All of the design and movement traits are the same as the WeWOOD Beige Date Watch, but the brown variety is made from Red Wing Cletis. This gives it a far darker hue, perfect for more formal events. It also runs for $119.
The Tense Multi Eye Two Tone Men's Sandalwood Watch is similar in color to the WeWOOD Brown Date Watch, made from a dark brown wood. This watch has a round face featuring 24-hour display, as well as the date. Made from lightweight sandalwood, the watch actually becomes lighter as you wear it more often. Handcrafted by expert woodworkers, the dark brown watch comes with a two-year warranty from Tense and retails for $143.
As the first watch on our list with a square dial, the Tense Multi Eye Date Square Wood Watch has a unique look. The watch is similar in almost every way to the previous Tense style, but the design of the watch obviously differs quite a bit. Because it is more difficult to craft, the square version runs for $161. The adjustable wood band has a squeeze latch release.
Crafted from a high-quality oak, this oversized men's watch has a 48mm case. Equipped with all-wood dials, the band is one of the few wood watch bands made from calfskin leather. Water resistant to 99 feet, the Flud Men's Big Ben Oak Wood Series Watch has Japanese quartz movement. It comes with three interchangeable straps made from wood, faux leather, and silicone. The watch is the cheapest of the bunch, at $90.
