The Garwood is a wooden watches manufacturer out of 100% natural wood. The Garwood design their timepieces in Los Angeles. Clean and Modern look, their watches have seriously appealing look which is, from the first sight, clear to be destined to men. Their marketing campaigns always feature a man by the way. They have been featured in famous Men’s Fashion online magazines like GQ and Esquire. Garwood has also made a limited edition watch in collaboration with the American football player Davante Adams. The minimalist watches from The Garwood are equipped with a Japanese Myota Movement. This is not a watch made by a woodworking amateur !
The Latest Garwood Watch
The Garwood has released recently their new timepiece entitled “360”. I think they named it this way because The Garwood have always designed their watches in a cubic shape, so this is the first circular watch in their catalogue. This is also the first watch from the American watchmaker that doesn’t have a wooden strap. The strap of this watch is made of cotton felt with leather on the inside to make it comfortable on the wrist. The dial face of this model is an oil-painted carbon fiber protected under a sapphire crystal glass.
The Garwood Watches
The Garwood watches are all, except the 360 model, designed with a cubic face and has an arrow shaped hour/minute hand, the same arrow shape found on the brand’s logo. Almost all The Garwood watches have a purple color seconds hand, except for the “Great Dane” and “The Sumo” models which have it painted in red. The purple color on the seconds hand is a great choice as it adds a subtle coloring touch that matches both the black and the white dials of their watches.
Wood types used by The Garwood on their timepieces are mainly American Maple wood like on “The Great Dane”, Zebrawood like on “Wakati” and the Indonesian Sandalwood found on “Kuta”. The clasp is made of a Stainless Steel.
The Garwood watches prices range between $149.00 and $159. The watches are delivered with a nicely designed box in which you find the timepiece on a cute small pillow that hold the brand’s logo and a message saying “Enjoy Your New Watch”.
