Carpenter carves functioning watches entirely from wood

Valerii Danevych makes his functional wrist watches almost entirely out of wood, with the sole exception of a metal spring needed to propel the movement.

Wood you believe it? The only part that isn't timber is the metal spring needed to propel the movement.

Intricate: Valerii has had a fascination for wood since his early school days when he made a 3cm guitar using human hair for strings.

Talented: Later in life, Valerii moved on from restoring wooden objects and creating miniature artworks to making mechanical products.

Time for a change: Despite having no training as a watchmaker, he began working on functional wooden wristwatches in 2005.

Different styles: Valerii mostly uses birch because of its strength and resistance, but also more exotic wood such as juniper and bamboo
It took a while for Valerii to determine which type of wood were most suitable for the tiny parts needed and to learn the basics of watchmaking.
But within three years he had completed his first functional wooden pocket watch.
According to Unique Watch Guide, he mostly uses birch because of its strength and resistance, but also more exotic wood such as juniper and bamboo.

Functional: Some of his watches have power reserves of 20 hours and are typically accurate to withing five minutes a day.

Honored: Last year, in recognition of his impressive wooden watch contributions, Valerii was inducted into the Horological Academy of Independent Creators
Each type of wood gives his timepieces different textual beauty. Some of his watches have power reserves of 20 hours and are typically accurate to withing five minutes a day.
