Original Grain a fantastic Californian watch company who kindly asked me to be a brand ambassador for them. Anyone who knows me will know my passion for timepieces nearly matches my passion for photography and so without hesitation I agreed to and they kindly gifted their latest release the Brewmaster, each watch being made with authentic reclaimed wooden beer barrels, flame tempered to bring out the grain in the wood and finished with brush silver steel.
This has been a real source of interest, the salesman in the watch shop where I had the strap adjusted wanted to know where I got it from because he had never seen one this unique. This is the 42mm version, they also offer a 47mm at no extra cost.
Sustainability is an ethos for this company too, planting one tree for every watch sold.
Hand crafted in wood and steel, which is a nice unique marque, this watch is so sleek with the bezel being only 1.7mm in thickness. Styled in ebony and matte black with Japanese Miyota quartz movement. At a sleek 1.7mm this is the world's thinnest bezel. Sustainability is an ethos of this company too, planting one tree for every watch sold which is nice to see.
Each watch comes in the Original Grain crafted wooden presentation box which is also a really nice touch and despite being based in California they have a distribution depot in the UK which enables delivery within a couple of days after receiving the order.
