Natural Handmade Wood Watches For Men and Women - The Sustainable Watch Co.

A wooden watch is a new yet timeless trend that has won the hearts of many with its unique, attractive looks. However, as with any new trend, there are still question marks for many who desire to add these eye-catching accessories to their collection. If you're one of those considering these exquisite timepieces, you’ve come to the right place.  

We at The Sustainable Watch Company present five things to consider when purchasing your next sustainable accessory to ensure you get the style and value for the money you’re looking for. Let’s dive into some of the facts that make our handmade watches and straps worthy additions to your collection.

5 Reasons to Invest in a Wooden Watch

1. Environmentally Friendly

The primary feature of our wooden watches is the material it is crafted from, wood. Being handmade from natural recycled wood ensures these are vegan alternatives to other available models in the market. Our vegan watches reduce waste and pollution, being crafted from recycled wood and avoiding the pollution generated through chemicals used to prepare non-vegan leather. Our wood watches are handmade using less energy during production, causing less environmental harm and producing less carbon. Moreover, we are stalwart supporters of reforestation, planting 10 trees in your name with every watch or strap you add to your collection.

2. Style

Our wooden watches have a striking style that appears as a modern addition with a classic look. Handmade and hand finished, these wooden watches have a smooth finish and are designed for everyday use. Intricate texturisation and attractive natural wood grain patterns contribute to each watch's uniqueness; no two watches are identical. Our wooden watches ooze uniqueness in every aspect, including every watch's one-of-a-kind grain patterns and natural wood colours. Enhance your sustainable and unique style with our environmentally friendly wristwatches.

3. Affordable

Whenever talking about anything unique, the thought of a high price tag pops into mind.

Anything unique usually comes with a high price tag. However, despite being elegantly handmade timepieces, our wooden watches broadly fall within budget for stunning wrist wearables, winning the race of affordability. Adorn your wrist with our head-turning wooden watches without compromising on other things on your wishlist.

4. Durability

The internal mechanics of our wooden watches use high-quality mechanisms such as Mechanical movement and Japanese Quartz. These mechanics ensure nothing less than high-performance time tracking and provide longevity to the wristwatch. Aside from the mechanics, the wood our watches are made from contributes to their durability. Recycled Sandalwood, Maple, Ebony, and more are the woods used to make our watches. Sandalwood is close-grained and hence used for carving and making fine furniture. The lifespan of a sandalwood tree may extend to one hundred years.

Among others, Maple wood is hard and dense wood with a hardness rating of 1450 lbs. This rating is given based on a wood’s resistance to wear and durability, the higher the rating the more durable the wood is. Hence the bodies and straps of our upcycled wood watches are reliable and not easily breakable.

5. Sustainable Materials

Sustainable is the new black in the fashion industry, and so are our watches. We at The Sustainable Watch Company are dedicated to bringing you, above all else, stylish wrist wearables handmade from sustainable materials. Whilst style is paramount, we ensure that our beautiful timepieces don’t contribute to deforestation and remain eco-friendly. To fulfill the wood requirement, we source high-quality wood from recycled furniture. On top of that, we carefully pack our watches in eco-friendly packaging and ship carbon neutrally.


The welfare of planet earth is one of the responsibilities we highlight in our sustainability pledge. As a population, we can go a long way to fulfilling this responsibility by incorporating small changes to our lifestyle, like using recyclable resources, buying eco-friendly substitutes, and supporting numerous other changes. These small conscious acts for our planet culminate in a better future and help contribute to any personal sustainability goals you may have. Make your purchases more ethical for yourself and for Mother Nature with The Sustainable Watch Company’s unique wooden wristwatches and strive for a better, greener tomorrow.
