Wooden Watches have already taken the world by storm. From popular celebrities to corporate CEOs, everyone today is wearing a bit of wood on their wrist. And there is a good reason for their doing so. When you buy a regular watch made of metal or other synthetics you are spending your money on a machine-made article that is the perfect clone of hundreds, if not thousands like it. A wooden watch, on the other hand, is not an expense, but an investment.
Wooden watches do not undergo wear and tear like watches made of other materials do. The more you use it, the more the wood changes the quality and gathers character. As a result, wooden watches can last for generations if maintained and used with the proper care. In fact, wooden watches are perhaps the perfect heirloom to pass on to the next generation.
Considering these facts it is safe to say that when you are buying a wooden watch, you are investing in a unique timepiece that has the potential to withstand the test of time and be a shining beacon that tells the story of you and your life for generations to come. So the decision regarding which wooden watch you should buy is not to be taken lightly.
Naturally, when looking to buy a wooden watch that you expect to endure for a long time in the future, you need to be very careful. As the popularity of wooden watches grows, so do the number of varieties of these watches that you can buy. Both online and offline stores now stock various kinds of wooden watches. With so many different selections of wooden watches to choose from it is natural to feel slightly confused.
At Seventh Watches, our prime concern always was and will remain, to help you make the best-informed choices when it comes to wooden watches. We realize that buying the perfect wooden watch that suits your style and persona, yet is also durable and of superior quality can be a daunting task for many. Whether you are looking to buy the perfect watch for yourself or a gift for that special someone, here’s a guide that explains the most important things you should keep in mind before buying a wooden watch.
Type Of Wood
What is the one thing that you should consider most carefully while buying anything made of wood?
That’s right, the type of wood! And a wooden watch is no exception. The first and foremost factor that you should consider while buying a wooden watch is the kind of wood that it is made of. Usually, wooden watches are made of woods such as Bamboo, Ebony, and Sandalwood, although other variants are possible. Two things that you must keep in mind while choosing the wood are nature and texture. While some woods are naturally soft and smooth, others are hard yet pliant. Make sure to choose the type that best reflects your personality and aspirations.
Another point that should be kept in mind while choosing the right wood is whether the wood has been derived from sustainable sources. Seventh, all our watches are made from wood that is sourced sustainably. So when buying from us you can be sure that you are doing your bit for Mother Nature.
The next important point to consider when buying a wooden watch is the movement. The movement is essentially the machinery that keeps your watch ticking. It is the device under the hood that is responsible for the precise movement of the hands of your watch. Commonly movements are of two types, either mechanical or quartz. This is usually mentioned along with other specifications for your watch. Choose the type of movement that you feel resonates with you.
The dial of a watch is the most noticeable portion of it, and you want it to be perfect. Check the quality of the dial to be certain of its durability. Some wooden watches have metallic dials that are inlaid in the wooden casing, while in others the dial itself is made of wood. For any wooden watch, the dial should be of a quality that reflects the uniqueness of the timepiece, and at the same time be trendy and fashionable enough to draw attention. All watches by Seventh are constructed with durable dials that are the perfect blend of form and functionality.
The wristband of a watch is the link that binds you and the timepiece together. So without question, it should be of the finest quality. The wristband of your watch should be durable yet provide you with the correct level of comfort. Certain wristbands can be adjusted to fit the size of the wearers’ wrist as well. The band should also match with the dial for a perfect style statement.
Construction And Features
Another important point to keep in mind while deciding on a wooden watch is its construction. Some watches are made entirely of wood while others are a combination of wood and other materials, such as metal. The best type of wooden watch is handcrafted to perfection by watchmakers, making each watch unique in its construction.
Apart from the construction, take note of the features that the watch offers other than telling the time. Some watches may have additional features such as calendars, alarms and much more.
Watches have served as timeless style icons ever since they were invented. When carefully chosen, a wooden watch can be a gift that the receiver will cherish for a lifetime. For you, it can be an asset that has the potential to contribute towards transforming your life for the better. A wooden watch on your wrist makes you organized, punctual and at the same time conveys a message about ecological conservation that is so essential in the present times. So, without further ado, head over to Seventh and take a look at the fabulous collection of wooden watches on offer.
