Ken Lau

In 1957, Ken Lau started his profession as a clock designer. He was a pioneer of using natural materials, such as wood and stone, for designer clocks.

In 1968, Ken began designing watches, in addition to clocks. Relatively new to the watchmaking industry, Ken continued his efforts on using mainly natural materials for designs. In 1985 Ken designed his first wooden watch, a simple round watch made of Rose wood. And in 2000, Ken developed the Sandalwood watch line. He introduced his trademark watch, the wooden bracelet watch in 2002.

    Comments about LADIES WOODEN WATCH:

    For our 5th anniversary bought this for my wife. Concerned until it arrived in the gift box and was quite surprised. For a woman that loves her watches this was a perfect gift. May get matching one for myself for the impeccable quality if the piece. From casual to classy this fits both styles.

    Comments about LADIES WOODEN WATCH:

    Really nice watch. Just make sure you enter into this purchase knowing it's very lightweight and made from wood therefore being more susceptible to damage. The woman's watch face is very small which suited my wife well but could be too small for some peoples preference.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The service was impeccable. We received a watch initially that did not function, either dead battery or faulty unit. I got an email response within 2 hours and they shipped my replacement next day. Wonderful team.

        Looks fancy. Got it for my wife for our 5 year wedding anniversary (traditional gift is wood) and it was big hit. Highly recommend this watch. I thought the watch looked great online but looks even better in person. Paid a little extra for the gift box and fancy bow, would recommend that as well.

          Very attractive watch. Keeps good time so far. The band is slightly big but the links are large too so removing another link (already removed one to make is smaller) would be too tight. I like watches fairly loose though, so it's fine.

            Unless the jeweler has missed something; I'm told that this watch is a disposable after the battery wears out. I liked the watch while it ran, but feel it was too expensive for a disposable!

              I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 20 year old daughter. The watch is beautiful, but by March 1, it had stopped working. We took it to a jeweler for a new battery, but the jeweler said it was not the battery, it was the watch itself that was broken. For this price, I certainly expect a watch that will last more than two months! With the watch, I also ordered the light-up umbrella as another Christmas gift. The lights on the umbrella were broken from the start, so we have an umbrella but no lights. After these two experiences, I have serious doubts about the quality of Uncommon Goods products.

                Can't say anything about durability because it hasn't been around long enough. But she loves it for what it is at this point because it is unique, lightweight and can be used formally or informally

                Service and delivery comments:

                First time using Uncommon Goods, very happy with service. Especially so close to Christmas.

                  Comments about LADIES WOODEN WATCH:

                  This is a very unusual and beautiful watch. The band is a lovely medium brown wood. Be aware that the bank is large, so if you have a small to medium wrist size, you'll probably have to have a few links removed. Not a big deal.
