First selection: Wooden watches

Selected the 16 May 2008 by Junior the “conker”

As I’m trying to make you understand, watches are not just everyday objects. The watches I will show you today are unusual, in that they use wood in their construction.

You will agree that the watches I have chosen do not reflect the tribal trend with its one-size-fits-all ethnic mix that you’re quite frankly better off avoiding once you’re no longer a teenager.

So wood, yes, but here used more like with certain aftershave bottles, because it’s sort of masculine and refined… (OK, the one in the middle isn’t very masculine, but I hope you get the picture). I’ve also chosen wood for another reason: you don’t expect to see it on your left arm, it draws the eye.

Wooden Watches

Let’s get acquainted. From left to right:

  • Vestal “Plexi” Wood Gold €319
  • Paul Frank “That’s Good”: Green €140
  • Nixon “Murf” Dark Wood €399

My selection is most certainly not exhaustive. It’s worth noting that Nixon do a lot of wood watches, particularly the Rotolog styles that I like best.

See you soon.
