As much artifact as timepiece, our wood watch is a modern update to the classic analog interface. Designed in collaboration with Stefan Andrén and hand-assembled in our Portland, Oregon, woodshop, our watch features a hand sanded hardwood face, spherical hour markers, a precision calibrated stainless steel module, and a wrist strap of vegetable-tanned leather. Each watch is individually packaged and wrapped in distinctive heavyweight matte black paper and ready to gift. It’s an understated yet sophisticated method of keeping the time.
Over the past couple years, Grovemade has established itself as the premiere maker of wooden mobile accessories, but in the past few months, it’s been branching out and expanding its product offering. Hot on the heels of it’s newly-released line of wood and leather desktop accessories, the Portland, Oregon-based company has just pulled the curtain back on a stunning new line of wooden watches.
Standing in stark contrast to the likes of Pebble, Fitbit, and other newfangled wearables that seem to be en vogue right now, Grovemade’s watches are an exercise in low-tech simplicity. You won’t find any sensors or touchscreen panels on these things — just a simple hardwood face that lets you know the hour and minute.
