These are the alternative uses of wood for this century and why you should embrace them

The twenty-first century is well on its way and with it, many things have changed in the world. One of the most remarkable ones is that humankind has realized the ecologic problem to which we are driving our planet. In such a race, there are some items that have drastically changed and that will continue to change in the future. One great example of this shift is wooden watches. These timepieces are changing the way people see the watches industry and provide an environmentally-safe, well-crafted and affordable solution to the matter. Read on and see for yourself which are the new uses of wood that you should embrace in the short future.

Wooden products for a better world

Wooden watches are, perhaps, the most remarkable twenty-first-century incursion of humankind into different-material innovation. Up to this point, if you closed your eyes and thought about a watch, you thought about a metal machine that was heavy and was made with minerals taken from the guts of the Earth in a polluting process or plastic, which is even more contaminant. The same way with sunglasses and regular glasses, which were made with non-recyclable materials and had a short life. In the case of watches, companies like Seventh Watches have been making hand-made, quality timepieces for a long time with outstanding results.

Thinking about the afterlife

 

The afterlife of a wooden product such as Seventh Watches Emeth is virtually endless, because the same way that wood was shaped into a high-quality watch, it can later be recycled and used for many other things, it is highly bio-degradable and, most importantly, can last for a hundred years in your wrist just ticking time away. The afterlife of recyclable materials is virtually infinite and the ecological impact of their production and disposal is minimal.

Don´t compromise looks, quality, comfort or features

This is, perhaps, the first thing that comes into your mind when you think about a wooden watch: I have to give up looks, quality, comfort, and features not to damage the environment. Well, if that is what you think about wooden watches, it means that you haven´t seen what it´s available in the market right now. Companies that are making these wooden timepieces like the aforementioned Seventh Watches can offer a catalog of affordable watches to match each and every situation with amazing specs and killer looks. For example

  • Seventh EmethThe ideal watch for your everyday life made out of zebrawood which gives it killer looks and very soft touch for your skin. This model comes equipped with date, chronograph and a comfortable 44mm dial diameter to be seen in all circumstances. All are accessible from the side controls and has a sturdy bracelet clasp that will last forever.
  • Seventh Kairos & Genesis These models made of precious sandalwood and ebony respectively are the ultimate elegant look that your wrist needs to attend a formal occasion, client meeting or any other serious event. They are made of a beautiful combination of precious woods and metal with a folding clasp and a 45mm dial diameter that looks just right. With these watches, you can show you are a serious, elegant person and also that you dare taking risks and have a conscious for the environment.
  • Seventh Thrasos Audacious is the word to describe this Seventh Watches creation that is made of dark sandalwood and is also square-shaped. With a smaller dial diameter of 38.1mm, Japanese movement and a mixture of precious wood and a little metal, this is the ultimate timepiece to arrive at someplace and be noticed right away. This take-no-prisoner watch will put you on the map highlighting your good taste and your care for others.

Wearing either (or all) these creations, you don´t have to compromise any of the things you usually look for in a watch when you go out to buy one. From the square shape and the push hidden clasp of the Thrasos to the elegant simplicity of the Kairos and Genesis to the features and comfort of the Emeth, there is a wooden watch for every occasion and they are all very affordable.

Dare to be different and lead the change

While wooden watches and companies manufacturing them took the first step, the leap into the void to bring you quality products made with alternative materials, the second part of the job is yours. Yes, some people find it hard to break some old patterns and be pointed out as the odd-one-out because they don´t follow the stereotypes that society presents. Well, in that case, it will only take a little longer until one of these wooden timepieces gets to your wrist or you wear a pair of wooden sunglasses. The modern uses of this material as a replacement for others to make the world a better place without compromising style and comfort are here to stay and becoming more massive by the minute.

It is up to you to get on board of the wooden revolution and embrace the wooden products these companies have to offer or wait until everyone has one and prices reach sky-high levels to get yours.

Conclusion – Wooden watches are the future and the future is now

The wood used to be human kind´s prime material for thousands of years. With modern times and the discovery of some other elements that are cheaper to produce in the short term, that has changed. Now humans have realized that what seems cheaper in the short run is actually a lot more expensive in the long term because it hurts the environment and its usable life is very short, with virtually no afterlife or recycling possibilities. Wooden products, especially watches and glasses will surely flood every window of every major shop around the world and people will buy and wear them on a daily basis.

The future is here and is made of wood; are you in?
