Wooden Watch Care Guide

Wooden Watch Care Guide

Our watches are made from high quality wood that is made to last.

Durability

One of the first things you'll notice upon wearing your wooden watch is that it is quite lighter than a regular steel watch. Because of this, it also is not as strong as steel materials, and cannot withstand a lot of force. Please take care not to strike it with excessive force and to handle it appropriately in order to prevent damage. Due to this, it is not recommended to wear your Narra Wooden Watches while undergoing extreme and strenuous activities and sports where there is increased risk of hitting the watch.

 

Water Resistance

Our watches are splash proof, meaning that they can get wet from time to time without damage. This may include contact while washing your hands, kitchen use, rain, or even small amounts of sweat.

But in order to improve the useful life of the watch, please take care NOT to expose it to water as much as possible. Exposure to water can cause the wood to expand and weaken, so we encourage that you remove your watch while washing the dishes, or washing your hands, or other water based activity. It is also not recommended that you douse or submerge the watches in water. If this happens, allow the wood a few hours or a day to dry out. 

 

Adjusting the Watch Links

You can adjust the watch links if they are too big using the watch adjuster pin that comes with the watches. When removing links, please take a look at the back side of the watch, and look at the direction that the arrow is pointing. This means that to remove the push pin, you must push it towards the direction of the arrow.

Likewise, upon returning the screw, push it back the opposite direction, with the screw head being the last to reenter the watch. Follow this to avoid damaging and loosening the links of the watch.
