A Ukranian carpenter made these watches entirely out of wood, including the fully functioning gears!
are crafted entirely from wood to create exquisite time-keeping devices that are totally functional. Ukrainian-born Valerii Danevych creates the wooden accessories using a variety of wood, including birch, juniper, and bamboo. He only makes an exception to incorporate a necessary metal spring into the mechanism. But otherwise the designs are formed inside-out using only specific wood for each minuscule detail. Such elaborate labor certainly pays off as the watches look like works of art.
