5 Awesome Wooden Watches That Cost Under $30
I’ve long been a fan of wooden watches, they’re a unique take that work with a lot of traditional styles.
I feel like most watches fall into one of two categories these days:
- Simple, which I love and fits the description of most watches I own.
- Modern, typically based around a huge dial and have a billion things going on from functionality to design.
Enter: the wood watch. Typically featuring a classic dial with a design and band that stands out in a crowd of wrists.
When buying your first wood watch, it’s best to grab a good looking model that doesn’t break the bank. The unique look and feel can differ from most watches, so take a flyer on one of these for less than $30 and see if a wooden watch is worth a bigger investment down the road.
Regardless, these will do the job without costing a wrist and a leg.
1. BOBO BIRD D27 – $29.99
Bobo Bird’s D27s is as clean and simple as they come, making for a great looking timepiece. It’s made with real bamboo, so it’s tough as hell. The D27 is handmade, easy to adjust for size, and priced right.
All-in-all it checks every box for a dope, wooden wristwatch.
2. CUCOL Afternoon 1:00 – $21.99
CUCOL brings a zebra design to the bi-color watch with a black or white dial featuring gold dial. I really like the roman numeral for 12:00 with simple dashes for the remaining hours.
This watch highlight’s it’s simple dial by using a two-tone zebra wood, drawing attention and without a flashy watch face. Plus, at $21.99 you have to love the price tag.
3. Shenzhen Sentai Sandalwood – $25.99
This Sentai is made from beautiful walnut wood. While most of the timepieces on this list feature a simple design, this one may be the cleanest. With a face that matches the whole watch in color tone, this is a sleek and clean look that works on any wrist.
It also comes in this cool Red Sandalwood color, which is very unique. If you’re looking to go for a more bold look but like this Sentai, give that Red Sandalwood a try.
4. Tempus Willoughby – $29.87
Moving away from wooden bands, we have the Tempus Willoughby. Straight up, I love this watch; a lot.
I’m a huge fan of ribbon band timepieces, they’re super light and really comfortable. This combo of a wooden watch body and blue face is really distinct but I think it works.
I love this look of the simple dial, no numbers but a three-hand setup. Big fan.
5. Uwood Eco Friendly Sandal Wood – $29.99
Last but far from least, Uwood’s beautiful two-time timepiece. Again, simple and similar in style to the CUCOL Afternoon above but featuring a different bezel and hands.
This watch is made with all natural sandalwood and stainless steal clasp, so outside of soaking it in too much water/beer it should take a beating and literally keep on ticking.
