This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. While many aficionados might swear by stainless steel and, occasionally, titanium for the construction of their timepieces, there's no denying that the wooden watches on our list offer an eye-catching alternative to traditional materials. We've ranked the best the market has to offer for you here by their movements, looks, durability, and the quality of the woods they employ. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best wooden watch on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 07, 2019:

The market for these has grown considerably in recent years, so quality has gone up at a much greater rate than price, with several automatic self-winding options available from companies like Jord and Laimer. There are even some nice pieces that play down their woodenness, if you will, — like the Pono Castaway — to appeal to a wider set of customers.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
