Italian Wood

I don't own too many watches in my jewllery collection, so when offered the chance to choose from new Italian watch manufacturer, AB Aeterno, I was delighted to select two pieces to add to my so-far limited collection. AB watches are an Australian based company offering a selection of mens and ladies watches in 100% natural wood. There are a selection of colours to choose from in various wood grains.

I opted for the men's style Envy (I do like my watch faces on the large side) and the slightly smaller, ladylike version Hazel in a darker mahogany wood. You are also provided with some small tools to remove the links, so no need to visit a watch repairer, you can get on with it at home yourself. The watches are a classic style which I love, but at the same time very unusual and elegant, with the beautiful wood grains. A perfect combination of quirky and cool.

AB Aeterno are also running an Instagram competition. I appreciate it is only valid if you already own one of these watches but as an Instagram addict, I thought why not? And perhaps if I win, I could give it away to a lovely reader! All I needed to do was - Wear the AB Aeterno - Shoot an Instagram photo with #abaeterno - Enjoy the contest! Every 20th of the month, the best 3 pictures are put on the AB Aeterno blog, if the one on the 28th which has been winning lots of votes is mine, I win another watch.

These look so great! I love natural materials. :)

I don't even own a watch. Never really learned how to wear one. Other than my Spice Girls-watch when I was little, I havent found a watch that would not give me an allergic reaction because they all have parts that has nickel. :/

This could be the solution, would love to wear one. :D

wow these are really great, and made out of wood too, who knew. i've recently seen some sunglasses made from wood, that would be pretty mad together. really like the idea of being provided with tools to fix them too, that is a cracking little extra

Wow, these look great. I've been looking for a different watch for so long.

I took a look at the website and it doesn't seem to want to convert to GBP or recognise my postcode to make an order. Slightly annoying!
