What’s the best material for crafting a timepiece? Stainless Steel? Gold? Titanium? The Everwood Watch Company has a unique answer to the question. This brand new independent brand is working to bring a hardwood watch to the market.
The Everwood Watch Co. debut line of watches are crafted out of genuine hardwood that is pretreated to make it resistant to water at depths of up to 30 meters and impervious to the effects of sweat. The timepieces have a traditional shape and an adjustable wood bracelet. Inside, the watches feature Japanese Miyota Quartz movement systems, and they are protected by hardened mineral glass faces to guard against scratching and damage.
There are three timepieces being offered in the initial line:
– The Kylemore Maple, which has a natural wood case and bracelet, a light colored wood dial and red inlaid wood hour markers
– The Kylemore Sandalwood, which has a deep red colored case and bracelet, a light burgundy wood dial and charcoal gray inlaid wood hour markers
– The Kylemore Black Sandalwood, which has a dark walnut colored case and bracelet, a black dial and brown inlaid wood hour markers
The Everwood Watch Company had set a goal of $10,000 when the campaign was launched. When this post was written, the company had earned $11,219 against a goal of $10,000 and had had successfully funded the October 2015. Timepiece aficionados are keeping a close eye on the campaign to see how it turns out.
