Color

Dials are crafted from thin slices of Gaia Wood harvested from forests of western Montana.  This stunning amalgamation of tree resin, bark, and wood forms over recently harvested or fallen trees.  The blending of these elements forms gorgeous patterns making each piece truly unique. This Gaia Wood, also known as “living stump” wood, was harvested from the stumps of Douglas-fir trees in Western Montana.  We coined the term “Gaia Wood” because of the patterns in the wood that resemble the mountains, oceans, and sky that the Greek deity is believed to have created.  Additionally, these living stumps are born from an interconnected underground world that mostly remains unseen.  A mysterious world where roots of numerous different trees (perhaps even different tree species) graft together to form a community.  Through this network trees communicate, share resources, and likely increase the resiliency of the forest. A case where “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts”.   It works like this… a tree is cut or blown down in the forest, adjacent trees that have grafted onto the roots of those from the felled stump keep that stump alive by healing over the wound.  It is believed that the protective layer reduces the opportunities for disease to enter into the connected root systems.  Tree Ring Co. only removes small sections of living stump wood with the intent to preserve the protective function of the stump’s shielding layer.

Underneath each wood dial sits a Swiss made quartz movement. The watch is enclosed by a high quality stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal.  Hand crafted in the Big Sky Country of Montana.

50 Annual Tree Rings- Est. 1973

Yes, the 1.5" tree used to craft this watch was a tiny seedling in 1973. Count the rings!

The Forest

Example of a sappling tree used for Tree Ring Watches. In the rugged mountains of Montana, where century old trees grow slowly, wood acquires extraordinary character. In our forest restoration work, we harvest thousands of small trees, only a few have the character to make the grade as a Tree Ring Co. piece.

Gift Box and Display

Each watch comes mounted on a small wood slab nested inside a cherry veneer box. When not being worn, the display stand allows the watch to serve as a small desk or shelf clock.

The watch is fabulous. Looks even better in real life than in the images. The watch was for my husband’s 50th and combined his 3 passions: watches, wood and Wales.....
