But, why bamboo watches?

Generally, bamboo wood is eco-friendly and sustainable. It only takes 2 to 4 years to grow to maturity.

Basically, this is good for our environment and the prosperity of the bamboos wooden watch industry.

Furthermore, bamboo wood watches have a good balance between aesthetics and durability. It is one of those woods with the best strength to weight ratio.

In fact, bamboo wood is superior to some metals. Even when you subject bamboo wood watches to high pressure and everyday use, they neither crack nor splint.

That is, watches made from bamboo wood can withstand every day wear and tear.

With virtually non-visible pores, easy to customize and polish for a smooth finish, you will still get the best bamboo wood watch at an affordable price.

For accuracy and consistency, the best bamboo wood watches use Citizen Miyota quartz movement, powered by the SONY SR626SW Battery. Of course, this should last for more than 24 months.
