WeWood crafts eco-luxury watches from wood

Accessories made of wood seem to be the trendy thing these days (see Shwood sunglasses) and Italian brand WeWood has jumped on the bandwagon with a line of watches made entirely from wood. Modeled after the traditional analog style watch (WeWood Date) and a more modern, square digital style (WeWood Crono), these timepieces are unexpectedly cool and classic at the same time. WeWood creations are all hypoallergenic, free of chemicals, and feature Miyota movement pieces.

The watches come in several colors, all derived from specific wood types including beige Maple, black Ebony, brown Red Wing Celtis, and army green Guaiaco. In addition to making a unique luxury product, WeWood has a heart for the environment, too. For every watch purchased, the company will plant a tree in North America.

Above: Date Beige, Crono Brown, and Date Beige/Army. All $119.
