The WeWOOD watch company have taken the watch design world by storm with their eco-friendly range of luxury wooden timepieces.
Australian fans of the Italian designed, eco-luxury watches were recently honoured with the launch of a black version of the Voyage range made using Tasmanian Blackwood.
A common symbol of strength and endurance, Tasmanian Blackwood is an easily worked, very stable and long lasting hardwood native to Tasmania’s forests that is favoured by makers of stringed musical instruments such as guitars.
Because the seed of the Blackwood remains viable for decades, this delicate timber is easy to grow, ensuring sustainability – a key component of the company’s green credentials.
With a large face, precision Miyota movement and date setting capabilities (an exclusive to the Voyage), the Voyage is a great time piece for the activist on the go. The sizable face and the lightweight yet substantial band make this a stand-out piece for watch lovers who prefer a more generously sized time piece.
As well as producing finely crafted, Italian designed timepieces, WeWOOD take their green credentials very seriously and have committed to planting one tree for every watch sold. Every WeWOOD time piece promises a finely crafted, Italian designed time piece in a natural, renewable and sustainable material.
