At the age of 26, Tor Chantara lives his life simultaneously in two worlds, practicing the fine woodworking art of marquetry that has its roots in the 16th Century, while learning techniques and ordering supplies via the Internet.
Our craftsmen are constantly designing new styles of wood watches. Each year, we create roughly 25 new wood watch styles and refresh our featured assortment of over 125 different styles. We are constantly searching for the latest trends in watch designs from around the world. We are looking for innovative styles that can inspire a new design of our wood watches.
We use a variety of hardwoods to create our watches. All the links are carved from solid wood. We do not use veneers or metal links like some other retailers. The wood is specially chosen to be particularly dense to withstand intricate carving into individual links.
Our wood watches are assembled by our partner in British Columbia, Canada. The expertise of our watch maker is unparalleled when it comes to creating wood watches with our designs.
