How to Take Care of a Wood Watch: A Comprehensive Guide


Wood watches have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are stylish, unique, and environmentally friendly. However, taking care of a wood watch requires some extra attention and care compared to traditional watches. In this guide, we will walk you through some of the best practices for maintaining your wood watch in top condition.

Keep Your Wood Watch Dry

Proper maintenance of your wood watch requires keeping it dry, as moisture can cause damage to the natural material of the watch. It's crucial to avoid exposing your watch to water, but if you plan on wearing it during outdoor activities, it's okay if it gets splashed with water. However, you should avoid submerging it in water. If it does get wet, make sure to dry it as soon as possible to prevent any potential damage.

Clean It Regularly

Regular cleaning is essential to keep your wood watch looking its best. Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the watch clean, and if there are stubborn stains or dirt, use a damp cloth with mild soap. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the wood. You can also use a specialized wood watch cleaner for deeper cleaning.

Use a watch box

When you're not wearing your wood watch, it's best to store it in a watch box. A watch box protects the watch from dust, moisture, and other elements that can damage it, and it keeps the watch safe from scratches or other types of physical damage. You can also choose a watch box with a moisture-wicking fabric to help absorb excess moisture.

Oil the watch

To keep the wood moisturized and looking its best, you can use a small amount of oil to condition the wood. You can use natural oils such as olive oil or coconut oil. Apply a small amount of oil to a soft cloth and rub it into the wood gently. This will also help to enhance the natural wood grain and color.

Check the battery

If your wood watch is a quartz watch, it will have a battery that needs to be replaced periodically. Check the battery level regularly, and replace it when it's running low. You can also opt for a wood watch that uses a mechanical movement instead of a battery-powered one.


By following the tips above, you can maintain your wood watch in top condition. With proper care, your wood watch can be a beautiful and durable accessory for many years to come.
