Product Description

Carpenter Watch

Warm and rustic yet thoroughly modern, the Carpenter Watch is the first soft-strapped watch made of all-natural wood. To achieve an uncluttered design in which the organic beauty of the wood remains the focus, designer Lorenzo Buffa created a myriad of prototypes before he arrived at the final iteration—an understated, gender-neutral watch form that accentuates the loveliness of wood veneer by taking advantage of its flexibility. With an innovative bonded wood-and-leather strap made from lumber offcuts and a solid hardwood body, the timepiece is as beautiful as it is earth-friendly. Dark: Made of red sanders with strap veneer made out of reclaimed makore off-cuts. No time markings. Light: Made of maple and strap veneer made out of sliverheart off-cuts. Stainless steel hour markings. Miyota quartz movement. Made by craftspeople in Japan. Case: 1.66"diam.

The Carpenter Watch is featured in the Kickstarter@MoMA Design Store collaboration, and was brought to life by 716 backers on Kickstarter.
