WeWood is a new watch brand made of wood and is the brain-child of an Italian watch lover and two eco-smart entrepreneurs.

Using state-of-the-art Miyota movements and made mostly of scrap-wood to fashion the  wooden timepieces, the hybrid technology results in a unique, handsome, and earth-friendly watch.

In 2009 WeWood teamed up with tree-planting-partners ‘American Forests’ and ‘Trees For The Future’ with the goal of to help restore Mother Nature, one watch at a time.

scrap-wood-used-to-fashion-wooden-timepiecesI had the pleasure of reviewing the Alpha Black Gold timepiece (Pictured above). This stylish and elegant looking watch is made from African Blackwood, which comes from the dry savanna regions of central and southern Africa. African Blackwood is considered to be among the hardest, and densest of woods in the world. I found the watch insanely light and as you would expect simple to operate. The Golden moving parts look great in contrast with the darker shade of the wood and glow in the dark. I did find that the Watch was a touch to large for myself so in hindsight a smaller faced watch would have been more suitable for a guy with a smaller body type. For me what stands out the most about this watch is its eco-friendly nature. Even WeWood's packaging is incorporated of mostly recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. I love the fact that for every timepiece purchased a tree is planted in its replacement.
