Wood Watches

Our Story

Tense (noun): A set of forms taken by a verb to indicate time; One moment in time in relation to another moment in time. Past, present, future. Tense Watches designs high-quality wooden watches. They are made from 100% recycled or reclaimed wood, and are powered by premium Rondo 6004D Swiss Movements or Japanese Miyota Watch Movements. Each watch is manufactured by hand in our workshop in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Our products are designed and built around our core beliefs in quality and craftsmanship. In 1957, Ken P. Lau started his profession as a clock designer. He pioneered experimentation with natural components, such as wood and stone. In 1968, Ken moved his focus to wristwatches, and in 1971 Tense Wooden Watches was founded. Even now, Ken brings his over 50 years of experience as a crafter of timepieces to the workshop everyday.
