When I received this Tempus Wood Watch to review, the first thing I noticed was the packaging. This handcrafted wood watch arrives in a size appropriate box that is 100% recycled paperboard. Before I even opened the box I could read the name of the watch, see all of the Tempus social media channels, and get the specifications of the watch enclosed. I loved opening it and finding my watch wrapped around this cute little pillow. I plan on storing it this way as well.
Tempus Wood Watches:
I chose to review the “Elenor” women’s wood watch made from red sandalwood. Tempus is a fairly new company. They like to see their brand as more of a lifestyle brand not just a watch company. The watches are made from reclaimed wood from all over the wood. They try to be as eco-friendly as possible. The founder’s original idea was from a Cu Chi Tunnel trip in Vietnam, where he purchased a wooden bracelet from a craftsmen affected by Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. As he wore the bracelet beside his watch, he thought how cool would it be for the wrist watch to be made in the same material. They offer a 30 day warranty and carry both men’s and women’s watches.
I was a bit worried when my watch arrived because I have a small wrist. It’s always been a problem buying bracelets and watches. I wondered what I would do once I received my product. It was easy to adjust! Included in my box were these pieces of watch band, pins and a tool with instructions on how to make your watch larger or smaller. It took seconds to remove the links and adjust the watch to just the right size for me! Perfect!
In a world where I feel like most of us depend on our cell phones to tell us the time, it’s nice to be able to put my phone away and where a stylish piece on my wrist. Imagine leaving your phone in the car or in your bag and just being? I find that wearing a timepiece lets me focus my attention on the present moment without the distraction of social media. The fact that this watch is made from wood helps me to connect with my natural surroundings in a more grounded way. A great gift item for a graduating student, mom or dad.
