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 MENS' WOODEN WATCH:

I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday which was January 26th. I opened it once when it came in the mail (a very prompt delivery) and thought it was great. It's very unique, and handsome. My boyfriend loved it, put it on immediately and wore it every day. Sadly, on January 30th, on his way to class, the watch got snagged on his bag and snapped. It wasn't a simple clasp break (which i would be more understanding of), a piece of wood actually snapped. He said it barely caught. I don't know if it was just a faulty piece of wood or what, but I am more than disappointed.

    Comments about MENS' WOODEN WATCH:

    The wood didn't have as high of a contrast as I expected, but that really didn't take anything away from the product. I bought it for my boyfriend for his birthday, over a month in advance. I'm so exited about it, I almost want to add it to his Christmas gift so I can give it to him sooner!

    It's a very different watch. I don't see anyone in my circles that have one. It's so light I don't feel like I'm wearing a watch.

      Got this for my dad for christmas. It's got a really cool natural look to it and it's really light since it's just wood. Pretty cool, slightly off-the-beaten-path watch.

        My husband loved this anniversary present! The watch being made of wood is counter -intuitive to think i would be so light, but it is! He is recovering from shoulder surgery and he loves this watch because he can wear it without feeling heavy on him.

          Comments about MENS' WOODEN WATCH:

          I bought this watch for my boyfriend who loves natural things and he loved this watch too! He has told me that he already receives lots of compliments about it. I had wanted to get him a watch but was overwhelmed by all of the traditional metal options so when I found this I was so happy! It is better for casual looks and not so much for formal, but it is very genuine looking and good quality.

              Beautiful piece; doesn't necessarily go with suit and tie, but for business casual/casual dress, it's a top notch item.

                Bought this watch for my husband for Christmas--he LOVES it. The one thing I did notice is that the watch appears just slightly redder in person than on the website, but all in all it's fabulous.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Product arrived in a timely manner, double-boxed and in great condition. I've ordered from Uncommon Goods a handful of times before and I've never had any cause for complaints.
