The product listed are all made out of 100% natural wood, but It also needs some help from other materials. It's hard to create the mechanics of movement or hinges without metal as well, so, no, you're not wearing 100 percent wooden product. But what wood lacks in flexibility it makes up for in visual appeal. Blending two grains creates contrast that will be a great addition to your look as the weather cools.

Handling

Wooden product are not known to be a part of your diving & swimming equipment, but these are designed to handle a bit of light water contact. The companys say the cases are waterproof, but submerging the band could cause expansion in the wood. For upkeep, simple cleaning and maintaining with a bit of oil keeps the sheen. "Wearing it on your wrist over time, it will absorb the natural oils from your body."

HOW IT'S MADE

Don’t you love to see how usually plastic & metal things are produced from wood?

Wooden sunglasses & watches are usually either fully hand-crafted or machine cut and hand-finished. There are a few masters in the world who keep the production cycle completely hand made, they create their pieces on demand and they can be quite costly. All manufacturers have their preferred ways of picking the best wood for producing wooden products. Some of the companies get their wood "from furniture factories where the pieces are too small to make another piece of furniture," and and it's a resource-saving process.
