Here’s a timely idea for an interesting and original Italian style Christmas gift for people who are concerned about environmental and sustainability issues – a wooden watch. It just so happens that Italian company WeWood makes a range of elegant and beautiful luxury watches in wood.
Being made of wood means that each WeWood watch is likely to be one of a kind.
Wrists bearing these wooden watches will probably attract quite a bit of interest too. Just in case you were wondering, the actions of these wooden wonders are made in metal!
Not only will the recipient of a wooden timepiece end up with an original and attractive gift, she or he will also be contributing towards the planting of another tree. WeWood, you see, plants a new tree for each watch it sells. If that is not a great example of sustainable business, I do not know what is.
Note that while these wooden timepieces are showerproof, they should not be worn while swimming,
Should the idea of a wooden timepiece appeal, you’ll probably be please to hear that Amazon.com sells WeWood watches.
Here are five WeWood watches which might catch your eye:
