Psst! Wanna Wooden Watch? [Extended]

Dublin-based Pieces of Wood

Irish-made watches carved from recycled and reclaimed wood and bamboo with love.

Founder Gavin Duff writes:

Pieces of Wood is a 100% Irish company newly formed in 2020 who are here to help connect you with the most incredible wooden watches.

But we also have a mission… to be environmentally friendly.

We are carbon neutral. We’re offsetting our delivery footprint by helping to fund the Jarí Para Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon Rainforest.

Also, when you place an order you are given the opportunity to plant a tree for just €1. We are doing this in association with Trees For The Future.

These watches are sustainable, eco-conscious, hypoallergenic, and pretty awesome.

And we have oONE (yes, one) available in an exclusive giveaway for a Broadsheet reader!

To enter, just complete this simple rhyme.:

‘My watch not only tells the time,

It helps the the forests remain sublime,

For the strap and dial are made of wood,

_______________________________.’

          Well met, Janet! There’s only one other person I’ve met [who was an American woman] in my life who can’t wear a watch because they slow down and stop; I tried different types/brands throughout my life but I gave up years ago.

    I get to that this is an Irish company. But can you confirm the watches are actually made in Ireland or are they just sourced worldwide and then sold by an Irish company. Big difference.

            You’re may be right Brother.
            But if things get that bad in Ireland I’ll just do what the Irish always do in hard times and that’s move to the UK.
