Product Information

Are the watches made of real wood?

Yes, they are. The wood we use originates from all over the world and is selected in several criteria. Our top priority is to be sustainable and to deliver high grade products to our customers.

The different kinds of wood used are indicated on the product pages of the different watches. More information about the different types of wood that we use is available on our Wood Types page.

Who designed the movement of my new watch?

We use movements of the highly appreciated Citizen Miyota.

Are the watches waterproof?

No, the watches are not completely waterproof. However, they are splash proof, so some light rain will not hurt your watch. Do not wear your WoodWatch in the shower or when going for a swim because the warranty does not cover damage from water or any other liquid.

Will the watch fit me?

Yes! The size of your watch can be adjusted by removing some links from the strap. This is easily done by a jeweler, a watchmaker, or yourself. Your delivery will include several screwdrivers that you can use to easily adjust the strap yourself.

Your watch can always fit you perfectly!

Can the colors differ from the photos?

As all of our watches are made of natural wood, each watch has its own unique pattern and will therefore differ slightly from the pictures. This makes each piece truly unique.

What type of a battery do you use in WoodWatch?

The batteries we use in our wooden watches are replaceable. Any watch repair shop or jeweler should be able to assist you with the battery replacement. We currently use the following type of batteries: SONY SR626SW. It's good to know that this is among the most sustainable type of batteries as it is mercury-free.


You can keep the watch vital by giving it some occasional attention. Make a mixture of olive oil with lemon in equal proportions. Use a cotton bud to apply the mixture to the wood and allow it to dry.
