It is not just about a trend: attire made of natural materials looks magnificent while being sustainable. A sustainable watch is a statement, these days! In fact, there are manufacturers who produce wooden watches with materials, which origins and production process they are fully aware of. They refuse to use plastic or chemicals, but rather engage in developing new appealing designs! Our watch of the week, the Holzkern Paris, falls into that category. Want to know more about this wooden watch? You landed on the right page then…
Sustainable wooden watches
The most obvious reason first: wood is a renewable material. Being wood a natural material, all watches look different from one another. Each wooden watch has its own wood grain, which makes them unique and by no means a copy. In addition to that, the production process ask for no unwanted energy or water waste, like for other kind of materials.
Sustainable Holzkern watches are made of natural wood. For example, walnut wood, rosewood, zebrawood or maple wood. While straps and cases are made of natural woods, the dials are often made of stone, making these watches even more appealing. A dial made of blue sodalite or marble with a walnut wood case surely conveys a certain charm. Along with quartz watches, it is possible to find automatic watches among Holzkern models. Their movements are branded Citizen or Epson. Moreover, for each sold watch the company donates 1€ for reforestation projects in Nicaragua (Prima Klima) or for activities involving various disabilities (Caritas Linz).
Our Holzkern Paris
Our watch of the week is the Holzkern Paris. This ladies’ watch has a brown link strap made of antique anthracite stainless steel and leadwood. The length for each Holzkern strap can be adjusted to your desire. Case and bezel are made of the same materials. As for the dial, the material is a simple grey-brown marble enriched with silver dot and baton markers. In this case we are dealing with a mechanical watch, so you can see the small round balance wheels on the dial, which grant you a sight of the movement itself.
