Reasons You’ll Love Lux Woods Watches
While there are various things that people collect, we collect watches. They are a subtle but, incredibly visual way to make a statement. That is why Lux Woods watches made a huge impression on us because not only do they make stylish timepieces, they give back with every single watch.
Darasak is a tinkerer and it’s no surprise that he enjoys something as intricate as a watch. He especially has a love for them and has been collecting them for years. When we had the chance to review a couple timepieces from Lux Woods, he was stoked and ready to lend a helping wrist.
Read on to discover why you’ll not only love wood watches for both men and women, you’ll love the uniqueness of Lux Woods watches.
You’ll find that Lux Woods has many styles to suit everyone’s taste. One of their most versatile watches is the Gaston Wood Watch. It is handcrafted out of high-quality Zebra wood and is available in 7 different colours.
For an additional $24.97 you can interchange your band. Get your fave colour, or get them all. I love how for a small amount, you essentially get a new watch. The bands are available in Concrete Suede Leather, Brown Suede Leather, Black Suede Leather, Orange Suede Leather, Grey Canvas, Olive Canvas, Blue Canvas. The leather bands are interchangeable and you can swap them as often as you swap your outfits.
With the Gaston watch, you don’t only have to reserve it just for casual clothes, in fact, you can sport it with a dressier outfit. So whether you’re rocking a tee, hitting the town, or going out on date night–the Gaston Wood Watch will shine. Darasak has been rocking it day to day and on date nights.
Unique, Lightweight and Comfortable
Weighing only 80z, this watch is lightweight and the leather straps make it super comfortable. I also find that wood watches are rare and unique. People notice and they are blown away at how gorgeous a wooden timepiece is.
Darasak wore the Gaston Wood Watch to one of our getaways and he got many compliments and people would ask to see it closely. I can’t say I blame them, it is a beautiful watch. They’re like, “Whoa! Is that a wood watch?”
Why yes, yes it is.
Since they are made out of wood, that means that each piece is unique. They are handmade and since not one watch will ever be the same, you can guarantee that no one else will have the EXACT same watch as you.
What sets apart Lux Wood Watches is the fact they are so customizable. One of the biggest ways to customize each timepiece is by using their option to engrave the case back. For an additional $15, you can engrave it with quotes, names, dates, logos, etc.
I chose to engrave the Gaston Wood Watch with a quote for my husband, “Every second, I love you more.” Well, because, we are mushy like that. I adore the notion that every morning when he goes to put on his watch, he will see that thought and know he is loved.
On the Pilot Wood Watch, we chose to engrave the Whispered Inspirations logo. Simply because our small business has been such a large and significant part of our lives. I am blown away by the quality since my logo has very small and intricate details. It came out PERFECT and flawless, which is quite impressive.
They Can Go Smart
For a watch lover, you can bet that among our collection you will find a smartwatch. The nice part of having a smartwatch like an Apple Watch is that it can be used daily if you want. It can keep up with your day to day life and send you notifications so you’re always connected.
It is actually one of my favourite watches to wear. Luckily, the bands are interchangeable and Lux Wood Watches has wooden bands that take them to another level.
Both Darasak and I tried the band out on our smartwatches and I love the fact that the band fits comfortably and is super lightweight. Opposed to rubber bands, I feel the sweat, slipperiness, and tightness. The Apple Watch Bands are $59.99 for the 38mm and $64.99 for the 42mm. So, they are well on-point with the price in my opinion.
They come in several colours and wood offerings. I chose the African Blackwood wood and I think it’s a beaut. I especially like the stainless steel butterfly jewelry clasp. It makes it much easier to put on. It also comes with 42mm adapters in case you don’t have the 38mm like we do.
Who doesn’t love a watch that looks good and is easy on the wallet too? Especially when they can boast the high-quality, attention to detail, and style that they do. Lux Wood Watches range from approximately $69-$100. The Gaston Wood Watch is $71.97 and the Pilot Wood Watch is $79.99. To me, that’s a great price for the handcrafted design that you get.
Now the Pilot Wood Watch is classy, sophisticated and beautiful. It is made from African Blackwood wood and is handcrafted. It glows at night with its glowing LUM Dial. The watch has classic pilot styling with large and over-sized numbers. To me, the face of the watch is just stunning. You can adjust the watch simply by removing the wooden links.
Eco-Friendly and Philanthropic
Lux Wood Watches are crafted from a sustainable, renewable resource–wood. Not only making you, the wearer, environmentally conscious but, allowing you to be a part of helping the environment. Their philosophy is “Buy one, Feed one, Plant one.” When you purchase a Lux Woods watch, you do something small to make the world a better place.
I can get down with that.
Lux Wood Watches works with a couple of carefully chosen foundations like FeedTheChildren.org and PlantABillion.org that share their vision for the future. I love supporting companies that give back and can’t wait to buy Darasak’s next watch from them too.
It’s easy to fall in love with Lux Woods Watches. Like they say–they are class with a conscience. Visit luxwoodwatches.com for more information and to take a look at their selection for men and women.
