A Wooden Watch is the Perfect Gift

A Wooden Watch is the Perfect Gift

Giving someone a present has more to do with the gesture than with the item itself. You can spend a lot of money on an item that is just like the one anybody would buy or go for a unique object that is specifically for that person. The latter ones are usually the most welcome by those who receive them; because they mean that you took some time to think about it and dedicated time, money and attention to select the perfect good for that person. Read on and find out why your next present for someone you care about should be a wooden watch, like the ones that Seventh sell.

A Rare Item

The wooden-watch revolution is in its very early stages and promises to be huge once it explodes. For now, before that happens, wooden watches are rare items that aren´t found on everybody´s wrists. Now, there are two ways of viewing ‘rare’:

  • Rare As in the Opposite to Fashion – From a conceptual point of view, speaking of a rare item is speaking of something that not many people have or wear. Such is the case with wooden watches. While this is true, for the past fifty years, the rarer the item we are talking about, the trendier it can be. Fashion is dictated by repetition, whereas trendy, as derived from trendsetter, indicates ‘the odd one out’, the one that is bold enough to try something new. Wooden watches are a rare, bold step by a trend-setter.
  • Rare As in Exotic – Wooden watches are still an exotic piece that few people have. Exotic nowadays is considered to be ‘of strange origin’. It can be applied to many things from condiments to clothing to cars or even art. When applied to wooden watches, it refers to how unusual it is that the materials utilized for its construction differ so significantly from the established norms for watches.

Giving a rare item as a gift has the challenge of having to search for it in unconventional places like specialized stores and websites. For example, buying a Seventh watch is a great gift, but the buyer will either know what they want and have to go searching the company´s website, or accidentally come across it when scouring the internet for ideas, or have it recommended by a friend.

A Classy Timepiece That Won´t Break The Bank

The price tag on wooden watches is really a bonus for such hand-crafted, state of the art machines. Most of the regular watches that make a good present sit well into the 4-digit sector of the market. The story is very different in the wooden watches terrain. The Seventh catalog starts at around $200, which means you can give a friend, a loved one, or a relative an amazing, hand-picked present for very little cost.

When we talk about watch prices, the affordable/cheap section is full of rubber, plastic and really basic timepieces that don’t make the grade for a hand-picked, beautiful gift. In fact, such gifts are really proof that you don´t care enough for the person you bought it for. This is exactly where the option to purchase wooden watches fits perfectly. The price tags don´t reflect their superior quality.

Show that you care

Showing that you care is crucial when you are choosing a gift. With wooden watches, you are showing that you are not only for the intended recipient but also that you care about the environment. Wooden watches are eco-friendly timepieces, which is a quality that will be greatly appreciated by those at the receiving end. In a world where indifference tends to be commonplace, showing that you care about something other than yourself and money is important. Seventh watches, for example, are handcrafted from eco-friendly wood. The forests where the wood for the watches is lumbered were planted especially for this purpose, therefore not damaging or destroying any established forests in the process.

If you show how much you care through the quality of your gift, the person receiving it will respond in kind by treasuring the opportunities to wear it on a regular basis. Chances are they will become ambassadors of the wooden watches revolution and promote the product at any casual meetings, their job or even through friends and family.

Uniqueness is the key

Wooden watches are unique because the grain of each tree is exclusively different and is therefore specific to every watch manufactured. There are many things that make each wooden timepiece impossible to replicate. If you buy a wooden watch as a present, you are also giving the gift of individuality to that person, and that is priceless. For example, giving the PARRÉSIA watch by Seventh is giving an item that is built with a mix of beautiful woods including zebrawood, red sandalwood, ebony, koa, walnut and more. The grain, marks, and color of each wood show how the tree has lived and tells its own unique story. This is more than just giving a facsimile of any other brand and model, including the most expensive ones.

Conclusion

There is no better present to give to someone you truly care for than a wooden watch because they are trendy, unique, eco-friendly, rare, handcrafted and much more. Showing that you really care for the person that receives the gift is the idea behind giving them the present in the first place. With a wooden watch, your objective will be fulfilled and plus you will be contributing to the wooden-watches revolution that can, in turn, result in a better, cleaner, more environmentally-friendly planet.

Give your loved one a wooden watch and just wait to see their face as they open the wooden Seventh box and see the content in it. You won´t regret your decision.
