Being a natural raw material, wood offers unique advantages. Given its individual figure, each TENSE Wood Watch is as unique as the person wearing it. TENSE Wood Watches are light and are comfortable to wear. They are hypoallergenic, since we only use natural wood.
Our TENSE Wood Watches are very durable in every day use and do not need special care. The natural oil of the surface gives a protective patina to the watch, making it even more beautiful. Choose from a variety of precious woods like: black oak, karriwood, maplewood, butternutwood, walnut, zebrawood, olivewood, teak and bamboo to find your personal TENSE Wood Watch.
TENSE was founded in 1971 as a family business in a small suburb of Vancouver, on the Westcoast of British Columbia. Our aim was to give elegant watches a unique and natural Canadian lifestyle design.
Since then our unique TENSE wooden watches have been highly appreciated by our customers. We want to pass this faith on to our European customers.
High quality and satisfied customers are our main goals. TENSE wooden watches have been a trademark for tradition and for Canadian art of watchmaking combined with excellent quality even for the smallest detail.
For our casings and bracelets of our TENSE Wood Watches we only use high quality wood of ecological origin. The heart of each TENSE watch is a high-quality Japanese stainless-steel Miyota clockwork that gives your wooden watch its durability. You can rely on our TENSE promise: Only perfectly manufactured products will leave our factory.
We love our TENSE Wood Watches as much as you will. Each of our TENSE Wood Watches is handmade in our workshop near Vancouver. We attach a lot of importance to the best material and the best manufacturing during each stage of production.
Wood is a unique material for a watch and working with wood requires great craft skills. Our TENSE Wood Watches represent a perfect blend of unique wooden beauty and excellent craftswork.
The Tense Wood Watch around your wrist is an ecological product, because environmental protection is to us as important as it is to you. For our production we therefore only use sustainable wood and the remains from furniture production that would usually end up in garbage. Wood suppliers from all over the world that we have been working with for decades can guarantee that.
All our production stages focus on sustainability. We replace single components of our bracelets instead of changing the entire bracelet, we ship our products with DHL GoGreen to avoid CO² pollution, and we offer secure jobs in our region. Even our website is operated with eco-electricity.
