    Any watches that incorporate wood into the dial like this Schaumburg?

    I’m not looking for those typical “wood” watches with cases/bracelets, etc made from wood, just curious if anyone’s aware of any brands that have incorporated wood into their dial design?

    I stumbled upon this Schaumburg and find myself intrigued. I’m sure it presents some challenges, but I think the right wood could make a stunning backdrop for a dial.

    So, just curios....anyone know of any?

    Thanks, Mike. That UG is really nice looking. Wouldn’t mind seeing that one brought back in a 40mm case.

    Moto Koure did a really attractive motorsport-inspired chrono with a Seiko NE88 a few years back. Can't confirm if it's an actual wooden inlay or just wood effect (sources seem to differ), but it looks good IMHO!

    Na Hoku, the jewelry brand, uses Hawaiian wood in some of their watches.

    Appreciate the replies so far. Thought I’d add a few pics (swiped at random) of what’s come up. I like the look, kinda curious as to why it doesn’t seem to be tried much these days by the major manufacturers. Just not a popular look? Too difficult to work with?

    I know several use to as Mike mentioned. Bulova, Tissot, Cartier and Hamilton for example. I've always wanted a wood dial Hamilton Ventura.

    I don't think in general they survived very well, at least the Hamiltons. There were a bunch of models all under the "Sherwood" model umbrella.

    Aren't you worried about termites?
