PRODUCT STORY
Take the time to remember to appreciate nature's gifts with a high-tech timber timepiece whose makers take a sophisticated approach to sustainability. Through a partnership with American Forests, WeWood ensures that with every watch purchased a tree will be planted in its stead, completing a careful circle of reforestation. As alive as the wrist that carries it, these whittled watches juxtapose elements milled and manufactured, for a dynamic union of earth-made materials and manmade technology.

The black watch is made from blackwood, a hardwood native to Tasmania's forests that is the ideally suited to delicate carving and craftwork. Blackwood's durable seed remains viable for decades, making this dusty wood a quick grower, ensuring sustainability. The ruddy, natural watch is made from remnants of red wing celtis wood salvaged from flooring. Hypo-allergenic materials that are completely free of toxic chemicals and sealants. Made in Los Angeles, California. Features two Miyota movements.
