**I asked Richard Rachunek to supply some info about his super groovy watch. His reply:
The name of the company is WeWOOD time pieces. They’re endorsed by ‘American Forests’ and ‘Global Re-leaf’. Their mission is to plant a tree for evey WeWOOD watch sold, and their philosophy seems to be ‘Sexy Sustainablity’: “And as true to its roots as the watch itself, WeWOOD will bring a little piece of mother nature into your otherwise urbanized life, while it brings a little more life back to our planet.’
My watch is made of ‘red wing celtus’, leftover from hardwood flooring scraps; and maple cut-offs from a guitar manufacturer. I got a certificate saying that my tree for my watch purchase was being planted in a town in Italy.
Thanks Richard!! You’re the coolest :-)
