I'd choose this wooden timepiece over a smartwatch anytime

Grovemade is very good at creating wooden mobile accessories that look nice. The Portland, Oregon-based company always has been good at this, reaching all the way back to 2009, when it introduced some unique, handcrafted Apple accessories and other office items. 

   Now, Grovemade sells minimalist timepieces. The company teamed up with industrial designer Stefan AndrĂ©n to try their hand at making the Grovemade Wood Watch, a wooden take on the traditional dial wristwatch. Unlike other timepieces, each Wood Watch ($239) is equipped with a unique set of circular hands to display the time. The red dot represents the hour, whereas the white dot indicates the minute.

   The watch's face is made from premium maple or walnut wood, while the rest of the device is made with a stainless steel backing and a vegetable-tanned leather strap. Check out the video below to learn more about this wooden timepiece:
