Why should I buy a wooden watch? Are you allergic to metal watches?

For most of your life watches have been unchanged.  They are made of metal.  Mainly they are made of stainless steel, titanium, gold, platinum or carbon fiber.  Many people cannot wear metal watches due to being allergic to the metals.  Skin irritation may result from metal ions from the metal parts of a watch being extracted by perspiration.

 Let’s face it; metal watches and wooden watches are both durable.  Wooden watches receive special coating of protection to make them more durable.  This makes the wooden watch smoother and softer.  Fact is that wooden watches are lighter because of the type of wood we use to manufacture them.  Normally we use bamboo or zebrawood to make wooden watches.  Most people understand that the wooden watches are more comfortable because they are lighter.  It just has a nicer feel.   

 So far not everyone wears a wooden watch.  A lot of people have never seen a wooden watch.  So, when people wear them, they are noticed by friends and clients.  Wooden watches are handmade and are more intricate and have a nicer design than metal most important they are hypoallergenic.
