Troy Watch

While both our collection of products and team have grown, this project is allowing us to expand our passion of making beautiful wooden products with a sturdy look, bold design and honest price.

The Lumbr team launched their Kickstarter campaign today and is looking to raise a total of about $30,000 to help bring the Troy watch to life. The wood-based watch is the first wooden watch on Kickstarter to possess a fully-visible mechanical skeleton with automatic movement.

The ultimate gift for any watch enthusiast, the Troy watch makes a statement without causing any discomfort. Both the case and the strap are made entirely out of solid Oak, while the front and back of the watch are made with sapphire glass, the second hardest material in the world behind diamonds. The use of this manufactured crystal makes the watch hard to scratch and built to last. While Troy was designed with aesthetics in mind, the modern wood design of this premium timepiece can also withstand rain, splashing and accidental submergence in water.

“Our team has a real passion for bold, practical and stylish design,” said project creator and lead designer Bart Hulshof. “While both our collection of products and team have grown, this project is allowing us to expand our passion of making beautiful wooden products with a sturdy look, bold design and honest price.”

Lumbr, a young, Netherlands-based company with a focus on craftsmanship, stays true to the country’s deep history of woodworking, specializing in creating innovative and wood-centered lifestyle products by hand. Each Troy watch also has glow-in-the-dark dials to ensure wearers can see the time even when it’s dark. The 46mm-diameter watch also comes with a hidden RVS butterfly clasp.

Early adopters can purchase an Oak Troy watch on Kickstarter for about $175, which is 40% less than the market retail value. Walnut Troy watches will also become available once the campaign reaches $40K in funding. For more information about the Troy watch, visit http://bit.ly/TroyKS.
