  • love it i would deffently wear one all the time it looks great and makes a everyday need more fashionable and awesome

    tiffany Mcdonald says:
  • another smart ass remark, this one’s from me…did anyone else notice the scale of the wood grain veneer in relation to the watch? on a persons wrist the knots in the wood would be smaller than that of a leaf. which leads me to conclude that the diameter of this watch mock up, looks like it’s that of an oil drum.

    sassark says:
  • but if you do look closely the wood grain and knots are identical in each of the three mock ups …. make your own judgements – the concept is fantastic. Would definitely wear these. Hope they do take them to production.

    lelliB says:
  • I’d buy these! They are elegant and interesting to look at. Make them. Make them.
