WILL I HAVE ANY ALLERGIES TO MY WOOD WATCH?
Our watches use only 100% natural wood and we refrain from the use of toxic chemicals to either treat or protect the wood.
For any client that experiences discomfort (itching or rash) on their wrist after wearing a Timeofwood watch, we suggest you stop wearing the watch and consult your doctor.
Our watches feature stainless steel (304) clasps for those who may have nickel allergies. Please see the below study from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9330816):
In 1994, a study of nickel release and allergic contact dermatitis from nickel-plated metals and stainless steels was published in this journal. It was shown that low-sulfur stainless steel grades like 304 release less than 0.03 microgram/cm2/week of nickel in acid artificial sweat and elicit no reactions in patients already sensitized to nickel.
HOW CAN I CARE FOR MY WATCH TO PREVENT CRACKING AND INCREASE DURABILITY?
With proper care, your wood watch can be worn for many years to come.
The biggest enemy of wood is sudden changes in temperature and humidity. This means if you leave your watch in a car on a hot sunny day, the high temperature has the ability to swell the wood and cause it to crack. Same with leaving it in the car on a particularly cold day or night, the cold will shrink the wood, putting pressure against the glass and pins and could cause breakage at those points.
Humidity control is also important. Too much and the wood will absorb the water and swell, too little and it will dry out the wood and shrink. Swelling and shrinking increase the possibility of cracking at the time and in the future.
SO, when you are not wearing your watch be sure that it is inside, and also protected in either its original packaging OR in a watch or jewelry box to protect it from an overly wet or dry environment.
Additionally, the best thing you can do for the wood of your watch is make sure it is properly conditioned, protecting the wood from the elements. We recommend Tung Oil or Lemon oil both of which can be found at hardware stores, or online.
Using a soft cloth, pour 1 teaspoon of your chosen oil on to the cloth and then use the cloth over the surface of the wood, buffing slightly. This will aid in keeping your watch clean and conditioned and will increase the luster.
HOW CAN I ADJUST THE DATE & TIME ON MY WATCH
Step 1: Pull out the crown. Turn crown to move the hands forward (clockwise) to set the time. Set the minute hand approximately 5 minutes ahead of the desire minute marker, and then turn back to the same marker.
Step 2: Push the crown back to the “IN” position.
Setting Date Models
Step 1: When The Second hand reaches the 60th second mark, pull the crown to the “OUT” position.
Step 2: Turn the crown to move the hands forward (clockwise) until you see the date (for date only) or both day and date change (Midnight).
Step 3: For AM time, continue to move the hands forward until the minute hand is approximately 5 minutes ahead of the desired minute marker; then turn back to the same minute marker. For PM time first advance the hands past 12 o’clock midday, then set the time.
Step 4: When the time standard that you are using reaches the 60th second, push the crown to the “IN” position
Step 5: For normal date or date displays, pull the crown to the “intermediate” position (one “click”). Turn crown one way until the correct date appears. Push the crown in.
ARE BOBO BIRD WATCHES WATER RESISTANT?
BOBO BIRD watches are considered to be splash proof. Normal wear and use can include kitchen activities, a day on the beach, the gym, etc. However, full submergence in water is not recommended both for the integrity of the movement and the wood itself. Excessive moisture exposure can result in a diminished flexibility in the bands wood links. If this occurs, allow the watch to dry for 1 to 2 days to allow the wood links to dry and return to their natural size.
