Even as the world reels under global warming and climate change, more and more people are becoming ecologically conscious to reduce carbon footprints, plastic footprints, air pollution and a number of other humans created problems detrimental to the planet. One of the effects of this consciousness is that an increasing number of people are seeking items made of natural staff instead of synthetic products. Some of you may be well aware of the emerging trend of wooden watches. Some of you may not have thought of wood as an option when thinking of watches. Whatever be the case, your search ends here. We present some of the most breathtaking wooden watches for you.
Wooden watches are more eco-friendly than other kinds of watches. You may well be wondering how wooden watches can be eco-friendly because making them means cutting trees. The good news is that wooden watches often get made with leftover wood from other big wooden items such as furniture. Instead of wasting wood, watches with wooden face and bands actually make sure that no wood is wasted. Then again, processing wood uses much less energy than processing most metals. That reduces carbon emission. In addition, many companies selling wood and wooden products have now adopted a sustainable approach. For every one tree that is felled, another gets planted.
Accessories made of wood and bamboo have become increasingly more popular in recent times. From cufflinks to belts and earrings and sling bags – a number of other items are available in wood and bamboo. So, from the fashion point of the view, watches with faces and bands made of wood and bamboo are very much in vogue. But wooden watches are much more than a mere passing fancy. Wood in common parlance goes as a symbol of durability and class. Watches with wooden face and bands bring these qualities of durability and class with them. Bamboo is a symbol of resilience. If you watch a bamboo plant in a storm, you’ll notice how it bends really low under the pressure of the wind. But it never breaks. It springs right back. Watches that use bamboo capture this unbeatable human spirit of resilience; of never giving up. That is why these timekeepers of wood and bamboo are things of timeless beauty and elegance.
What makes wooden watches more durable? For one, wood is much less sensitive to heat than most metals. That comes from what is known as weathering. In other words, wood becomes naturally durable because they adapt to seasonal changes as part of a tree. In addition, trees store carbon as they grow. In trees grown sustainably and wood processed with care, up to 50% of the carbon remains stored. That is one of the factors behind the durability of wood. This goodness transfers to wooden watches also. But of course, a lot goes into the tempering of wood also, which refers to the treatment that human woodworkers give wood before making items with it.
Watches with wooden face and brands are made of best quality wood and takes a lot of expert craftsmanship to be produced. Wooden watches are handmade, which makes every piece a designer item. A watch made of natural wood has such a stamp of character that makes the wearer stand out immediately. At Seventh watches, every piece is carefully handcrafted to ensure their individuality. To give these watches a distinct style of their own, Seventh combines wood with other materials such as glass, metal, leather and . . . Well, the intrinsic creativity and imagination of the Seventh team that captures dreams to adorn your wrist.
Does that sound odd? Well, not if you think of watches made of sandalwood. Sandalwood is an aromatic wood that is known to retain its fragrance for years. If you are wearing a watch made of sandalwood, the mild fragrance from your wrist would be much more soothing and unique than any perfume you might use. Think of holding hands on a romantic evening. The soft fragrance emanating from your wrist may be just the thing to make this evening one of the most remarkable ones!
