Four reasons to love wooden watches

Updated: Dec 9, 2020

We really wouldn’t be without our Orange Otter wooden watches and this is why we think they’re such a treat to wear:

1. They are just so comfortable, we often forget we are wearing them. The wood strap and case on our watches give a feeling of warmth that you don't get with metal, plastic or rubber straps.

They’re pleasingly lightweight, weighing less than a tennis ball. They came into their own during the heat wave this summer, when we were pleasantly surprised to find that the wooden strap meant that sweat didn’t build up like it does with other watches.

2. You are going to stand out, especially wearing one of our neon painted watches that really begin to glow as the light fades.

You won’t find hand painted wooden watches from anyone else than Orange Otter Design. We have a range of beautiful colours, but if you want to take this a step further, for a truly unique look we will even paint one in your own choice of colour. All you need to do is email us at with details of the colour you are looking for.

3. As well as looking beautiful, our range of bamboo watches are eco-friendly as well with bamboo being so fast growing. Did you know, the world record for the fastest growing plant belongs to a certain species of bamboo which have been found to grow at up to 91 cm per day! They also come packaged in cardboard boxes to avoid unnecessary plastic waste.

4. They’re just so versatile, offering a great mix of casual and more formal. We love that we only need one watch when we head off for a weekend away or business trip.

So would you wear wood too? If like us the answer is yes, why not take a look at our range of wooden watches.
