In today’s era of smart devices which pack in everything from a flashlight to a high-end camera, it is easy to believe that the time for traditional watches is long gone. Everyone carries a smartphone nowadays, and these can give you the perfect time.
So why should we bother wearing a watch, even more so a wooden one?
Well, we at Seventh Watches are dedicated to bringing you the best timekeepers known to man. And today we are going to delve into why traditional wooden watches are not only fashionable but also necessary.
While it is true that the digital watch of your smart device can tell you the time, but a traditional wooden watch does more than just that. According to several studies conducted by Forbes, people who wear traditional watches have proven to be more successful. They do not always need to take out their phone just to check the time for a meeting, and hence are less distracted by the incessant alerts that have become part and parcel of our lives today. As a result, they are more punctual and prepared, which are considered the hallmarks of a professional.
Further, people who wear a traditional wooden watch are considered to have better taste and appreciation of the finer things in life. They are more organized in their work and personal life, can manage time and work better, and obviously, make a good impression. Just think of the impact you’ll make if you wear a wooden watch from Seventh Watches to your next business meeting.
The climate of our planet has been rapidly deteriorating in recent years thanks to human action. Industrial activities such as mining, and increasing consumption of fossil fuels, have had a devastating effect on our environment. So, it is up to each one of us to do our bit for saving the environment. As wood is an eco-friendly and sustainable material, wooden watches are the perfect excuse to reduce your carbon footprint, and up your style quotient at the same time! Further, all products from Seventh Watches are sourced from trees grown specifically for the purpose of watchmaking, and hence the natural forest cover is protected from harm. So, by wearing a wooden watch, you are not only saving the environment but also sending a message out to everyone about your ecological awareness.
Yes, you read it right: wooden watches are healthy. It is a proven fact that the presence of wooden material in close proximity to us can help mitigate multiple physiological as well as psychological conditions. Being in the presence of wood can lower blood pressure as well as heart rates; this can help in reducing anxiety disorders and stress-related diseases such as stroke.
Watches are meant to be near our skin for extended periods of time. Watches made from metal or synthetic plastics may contain chemical substances which are harmful to our skin, and hence are likely to result in skin rashes, allergies, and such other related health conditions. As our skin continues to absorb the poisonous materials, the conditions may exacerbate, leading to life-threatening diseases such as skin cancer.
But wooden watches by Seventh Watches are non-toxic and perfectly natural. Hence there is no risk of any form of danger for your skin and health. Being free from any form of synthesized chemicals, these watches are perfect for the health-conscious professional of the 21st century.
Unlike metal watches, which tend to be heavy and chunky, wooden watches are lightweight, comfortable and a delight to wear. Further, wood does not react to temperature variations and moisture as rapidly as metal, making wooden watches more durable and a perfect investment for the long term.
Wooden watches are unique. Every watch from our company is hand-crafted to perfection as per your tastes, making it the perfect style statement for you. Watches made of metal and synthetics are mass produced in factories on automated machines; so, no matter how expensive they are they can never give you that intimate connection which a wooden watch provides. Also, wooden watches are universal in the sense that they can be worn with equal ease at a party as well as a business meeting and are sure to grab eyeballs everywhere.
Another fact that should be kept in mind is that no two trees are perfectly equal and hence each watch made from a tree carries certain individuality. So, if you want a timepiece that is sure to set you apart from the rest, a wooden watch is your best bet.
Think of the last time you stopped to admire any antique wooden furniture. Wood has a certain quality about it that simply transcends description. Similarly, wooden watches do not undergo wear and tear as normal watches do. As time passes, the wood changes character, the surface gathers a certain polished sheen that reflects your life’s journey. One can go as far as to say that the watch becomes a witness to your very being.And one day you can pass it on to your next generation, thereby preserving a family tradition which will keep you alive for time immemorial.
Ever since watches were created, they have been perceived as a symbol of your personal taste and style. The digital ecosystem of the 21st century has served us with many undeniable benefits but has nevertheless created a certain dissonance between us and nature. We are increasingly moving away from the Earth, forgetting that we are but an integral part of the grand scheme of things that make up our planet. A wooden watch, more than anything else, can serve to create a personal bridge between you and Mother Nature. So, without further ado, check out the fabulous collection of Wooden Watches from Seventh Watches today!
