How Our Recycled Watches Remain Sustainable in Production

In an era where sustainability has become a buzzword, our choices as consumers play a pivotal role in shaping a greener future. One remarkable emergence in the world of fashion is recycled wood watches. These timepieces are crafted from upcycled wood furniture offcuts and offer a unique blend of style and sustainability, all with a minimal environmental footprint. Let's dive into the world of these eco-friendly, handmade watches.

The Beauty of Upcycled Wood

The Beauty of Upcycled Wood

The foundation of these recycled wood watches lies in the concept of upcycling. Instead of sourcing wood directly from trees, we turn to discarded, high-quality wooden offcuts from furniture manufacturers. This creative approach not only breathes new life into waste but also significantly reduces the environmental impact of the end product. 

By repurposing wood, we bypass the need to fell new trees, preserving our precious forests. This in turn helps maintain the delicate balance of our ecosystems and reduces the impact on the environment. The unique grain patterns of the natural woods are striking in themselves; this creates a win-win accessory where style meets ethics.

Environmentally-Friendly Mechanics

The elegance of our wood watches is further refined by their intricate mechanics which negate the need for a battery. These mechanical details on the faces of our skeleton watches, not only enable our mechanical wood watches to run perfectly on time; but create an accessory that is bound to attract attention for all the right reasons.

The metal used to craft the housing for our mechanical movements that sit in our statement timepieces, originates from discarded railway tracks. This deliberate choice eliminates the need for new metal production. The process minimizes the environmental impact associated with traditional metal forging and conserves resources and energy; while decreasing carbon emissions. A meaningful step on our mission to create environmentally friendly watches that do so much more than just tell the time, by also creating a story of sustainability.

Environment Friendly Watch

Crafted by Hand

Our recycled wood watches have a unique charm due to being handcrafted. This artistry results in one-of-a-kind grain patterns and wood colour hues, connecting your new accessory to nature's beauty. Handmade crafts use fewer resources than mass-produced items, making them more eco-friendly. These watches have a minimal impact on the planet's resources, aligning with our commitment to sustainability. Our recycled wood watches are both striking and environmentally responsible, offering you a chance to support eco-friendly production methods without forfeiting the accessory you love.

Eco-friendly Packaging 

Our eco-friendly packaging is a further testament to our commitment to sustainability. Our sustainable watches are delivered to you in a watch box that's crafted from eco-friendly recycled and recyclable paper. Our other watch box option is crafted from bamboo, which supports the unique natural charm of our watches. This sustainable watch box is specially designed to protect your recycled wood watch or strap, ensuring long-term use. Helping extend the life of your purchase and reduce waste even further, supporting the healing of our planet.

Embracing Vegan Principles

Unlike standard watches, our eco-friendly wood watches have a commitment to animal welfare. Every element used in creating our wooden watches is crafted by hand and is entirely vegan. This means we avoid any materials or processes that involve animal cruelty or animal derivatives. Our timepieces reflect our dedication to creating products that are not only environmentally friendly but also protect the interests of animals.


In a world focused on sustainability, our recycled wood watches are a stylish and eco-conscious choice. Crafted from upcycled wood furniture offcuts and discarded railway tracks, they reduce waste and preserve our trees. These materials lessen the need for new resources and lower carbon emissions. Handmade charm, vegan materials, and eco-friendly packaging align with our commitment to sustainability. Join us in making ethical choices to promote a greener future.
