A little while ago we were sent a pair of wooden watches from Konifer, a Quebec based company who specialist in eco-friendly, 100% natural hardwood watches with a non-toxic oil finish. We aren’t wood watch newbies so we were excited to see how unique they were.
Konifer is one of the many companies coming out with wooden watches now – apart from their obvious hipster appeal; they actually have a few advantages over metal and plastic. Firstly, they’re very lightweight, which is a big plus if you’re into chunky watches. They’re also not as sweaty and sticky as plastic. On top of that, the natural wood grain finish is gorgeous!
Konifer has an innovative story behind its production, the brand believes in sustainable products. What we really loved about this company is that they don’t just claim that their products are eco-friendly. They also give back to the environment by planting a tree through WeForest for every watch sold.
After being introduced to the brand and their range of watches, we teamed up to review a couple of their newest designs on our blog. We decided on 2 different styles, the KRONO BLACK ZEBRA from men’s watches and the SEQUOIA BLACK from the women’s. They’re both gorgeous and the wooden texture surprisingly smooth to touch, combined with its light weight, and gave us a very comfortable experience.
The Korno Black Zebra’s dual shade is quite uncommon and would pair easily with any outfit. The Sequoia Black is not less special; it has a gorgeous classic color, and is suited with any day to evening wear or a special occasion. The packaging used by Konifer is exactly what you would expect when ordering a wood watch. The watches will arrive in a stunning earth toned box made with durable cardboard, with the watch resting comfortably on a pillow cushion inside.
Konifer watches come in many different finishes and use Citizen Japanese movements in their timepieces. The Konifer Watches are a fantastic example of how both style and nature can blend together to create a product that is completely unique and beautiful.
