I recently teamed up with a watch maker who specializes in quality watches, Wood Mark, who create great watches with all of my expectations provided. Wood Mark makes unique, all-wood* (*but for the mechanics and hardware, of course) watches that keep track of time and date, but also look sharp and classy. I found the Voyager model to be a watch that can work with most outfits; casual, dressy, and outdoors.
Upon first inspection of the Voyager watch, the quality was apparent immediately. The red sandalwood band works smooth and fits comfortably, and the watch face is simple and elegant, with silver line markings and no numbers to indicate time, and is complete with a small pearlescent square that indicates the date. The Voyager watch is water resistent, which is a requirement for my lifestyle.
I have a deep love for Nature, if you can’t already tell this by reading Eye & Pen. So when I team up with a company who works with leather or wood, I like to be sure I choose partnerships that are ethical, with companies who are not actively working to make the world a worse place. Wood Mark’s handcrafted watches are made of strictly sustainably forested woods, which I think is an important distinction.
