Original Grain Launches Handcrafted Watches With Wood Dials

The brand launches solid wood dials in two collections for summer 2016

Solid wood watch dials are the latest addition to Original Grain's collection. After a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, the brand continues to launch stylish and eco-conscious watches inspired by the Pacific Northwest. Featuring 100% exotic and sustainable wood, Original Grain timepieces stand out with their use of pau rosa (rosewood), American maple, mahogany and reclaimed American oak from whiskey barrels. The wood demonstrates the brand's handcrafted nature and care for details. When paired with stainless steel the designs showcase a refined, authentic aesthetic.

Original Grain is releasing a few impressive additions to their Minimalist and Barrel collections. Both now feature a few styles with solid wood dials (most brands in the wood watch industry use wood veneers). The three Minimalist styles are truly that—with a simple design, a very thin 6.7mm case and a restrained 40mm width. The two heftier additions to The Barrel collection are in mahogany (with a 47mm case diameter) and rosewood (at 43mm). All of the wood is FSC-Certified sustainably sourced exotic hardwood. All of the watches are powered by an accurate Miyota Japanese Quartz movement.

Combining stainless steel and wood lends the watches a distinctly sophisticated, modern yet outdoorsy vibe—not an easy balance for any accessory. Whether you're looking for something slim and sleek or statement-making, Original Grain offers a mix of watches you won't find anywhere else.

The updated Original Grain collections are available online, where prices start at $149. Use the code COOLHUNTING at checkout to receive a discount of 15% off of your order. For every watch sold, the company plants 10 trees in partnership with the non-profit Trees.org. Together, they plan to plant a million trees this year alone.
