WeWood produces eco-friendly, stylish watches that are made from 100% recycled or reclaimed wood. The timepieces are manufactured in an environmentally friendly way using non-toxic, biodegradable and recyclable materials, and are also hypoallergenic. They do not include dyes, chemicals, nickel or other harmful components.
The Italian brand shows that being environmentally conscious shouldn’t be a barrier to style and luxury, with the watches gracing the wrist of sophisticated British actor Colin Firth, amongst others. The current collection offers classic shapes and analogue faces, complete with a quality Japanese Miyota mechanism for precision timekeeping.
There are twenty three style and colour options available, including natural, black, brown, two-tone and even camouflage. The use of wood makes each watch completely unique (due to natural distressing) and ultra lightweight. Here we showcase a few of the key styles…
The Key Styles
The ‘Voyage Black’ model features a classic circular design with a matte black finish, complete with a slightly oversized face. This is a great evening watch; one of the smarter options in the collection:
As we all know by now, camouflage is a huge trend for SS13 – and WeWood have taken note with several styles featuring the polarising pattern. One of our favourites is the ‘Jupiter Army’ watch, which features an all over green camo print and a dual minute/seconds face.
The chunky design has an almost ‘cuff like’ aesthetic, making it perfect for those looking for a distinct and contemporary timepiece that stands out from traditional models:
The ‘Metis Chocolate’ is a particular favourite here in the FashionBeans office. Featuring a vintage look square face, it weighs a mere 24 grams. The combination of wood grain and a vintage silhouette results in a beautiful and classic design that can be styled for casual or smart occasions:
