50th Gift Pen

Regular price$150.00


An heirloom quality gift for the 50th that will be cherished for years to come.  We found a century old tree and crafted a pen that features 100+ annual rings. Each of the annual rings represents one year of the tree's life.   The year 1972 is engraved on the pen at the corresponding year to commemorate this milestone year.  

In the words of Herman Hesse "one can read its whole history in the luminous inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured."

The Douglas-fir tree used to make this pen had sprouted in Western Montana in the late 1800's. The first year of the tree’s chronology is also included on the pen. In 2022 the tree was harvested as part of a forest restoration project. See restoration photo below pen photo.

 This pen features a magnetic cap, and is made of high quality components. It comes with a premium rollerball cartridge from Franklin Christoph. The pen also comes with a beautiful wooden case for displaying both the pen and the information card describing the tree ring/natural history and forest restoration. 

Each pen is one-of-a-kind, and will vary in origin date and grain pattern.

Pen is available as rollerball or fountain pen.

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.

Don't take our word for it


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.....
