Analog Watch Co. Review: Carpenter Collection Makore & Red Sanders Watch

It was very interesting to do a review on a watch company that not only creates innovative fashion but does so in tribute and harmony with nature. Analog Watches are partners with Trees for the Future. This means that every time you buy a watch from the Carpenter Collection a tree is planted. Furthermore, Analog gets all its wooden materials, such as bamboo, teak, maple, and makore, from waste at lumber mills.

The watch is made out of a bold red sanders wood. The straps are makore, and actually the world’s first bendable wooden strap for a watch. The simplicity of the design only emphasizes the wooden material and stands out on the wrist.

While the grain in the red sanders wood makes it a beautiful piece, I was skeptical at the comfort level of walking around with literally a wooden watch on my wrist. But the straps smoothly run along your wrist, and in my opinion, are more comfortable than some leather strap watches I have worn.

I recommend this watch for anyone who has an appreciation for nature or who wants a unique watch to add to their collection. The watch looks great with casual wear and is guaranteed to be an interesting talking point.
