Before buying anywooden wristwatchit is necessary to evaluate:
The style in line with the material
Let's face it, some wooden watches on the market are not worth the tree used! Wood is an elegant material and does not go well with modelssquatand too coarse. Excessive caliber models should be avoided.
Wood finishing and treatments
I'd like to think that the wood used to make the wrist watches it was 100% natural but… to be durable over time it is good to choose a watch with a polished and well-worked finish. If the wood appears rough or dull it should be avoided as it probably won't have long life.
Movement and quality
Most wooden wristwatches are powered by quartz. Before purchasing the wristwatch, ask the company to provide you with the name of the company that supplies the movement mechanism. If the company omits this data, be wary, maybe the finishes will also be good, but the clock mechanism could be a real Chinese. A goodwooden clockwristit should have the mechanism provided by a reputable company like JapanMiyota, the same that provides the movementsCitizen. Inquire before purchasing.
Somewooden wrist watchesthey are simple and only provide the time, others give additional information with a small date window, still others show the phases of the moon ...
There is no shortage of high-end watches where small touches in mother-of-pearl, with brilliants or diamonds are added to the wood. The arrows of the same watch, as well as in mother of pearl, can be in gold or silver, as well as the closure system.
For men or women
Thewooden wrist watchesthey are, for the most part, unisex, in fact the differences matter little. Of course, some companies have differentiated men's and women's lines by sizing them and adding ad hoc finishes but the gender differences ofwooden wristwatchesthey are much less marked than metal or plastic watches. This empowers women to choose men's watches and vice versa - wood is an extremely light material, so even a slightly larger dial won't make a difference in terms of weight on the wrist.
