As someone who has been a collector of watches for over 45 years I was super-stoked to receive this handcrafted Two Tone Wood Wrist watch from Etsy shop Urban Designer NYC.
This is the second wooden watch that I have from their range, and I am pleased to say that it lives up to the style and quality of my first one! The watch is made of Bamboo, a sustainable material, a fact that is very important to me, as an environmentally aware person, so bear in mind that for that reason these type of watches are less sturdy in use than metal or plastic, but it is well worth it!
It is clear that the watch designer takes attention to detail very seriously, so the watch is very well made, being polished to perfection and even the wooden strap is smooth to the touch, making it very comfortable to wear. I particularly like the fact that the watch is large and so it sits well on the wrist. The style of this particular watch is more formal, but with the natural wood it also looks good with informal wear.
It only took a few days to arrive even with the engraving I requested, and it was one of those rare occasions where a photo of a product matches exactly what you end up receiving.
On a final note, the watch was engraved for me, despite which it was done and delivered in super-fast time, and customer service is really helpful with any questions.
Any of these watches would make a very special personalised gift for a boyfriend, husband, father, or even a son (especially with the Holiday's right around the corner)!
I can’t wait until I can add all of the Urban Designer NYC range of wooden watches to my collection!
