The August 2019 WWR Giveaway: The Ovi Watch Prunus

It’s the start of a new month, so you know what that means – it’s time for a new giveaway! This time around, we’ve got one of the more interesting watches I’ve had the pleasure to review, the Ovi Watch Prunus.

Now, we did tell you all about this watch in our full hands-on review earlier this year (which you can read right here). If you didn’t read the review, or don’t remember, go check it out, as there’s a pretty awesome video in there that shows how the watch is made.

We’ve looked at a few wooden watches over the years here, and what impressed me so much with the Ovi Watch Prunus is how the case and dial are all of one piece, with 3D milling occurring to create the indices. This is really quite a clever approach, and results in a really unique look, not to mention a rather superb fit and finish.

A wooden watch may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who it is, the Ovi Watch Prunus is sure to impress. For all of those people, you of course have your chance to win the very one we reviewed. To get your entry in, do the following:

  1. Comment below what your favorite watch is that uses a non-traditional material for the watch
  2. Head on over to the giveaway widget to complete your entry

Be sure to do both steps to complete your entry. Contestants are limited to North America (not that we don’t like the rest of the world, it’s just expensive to ship). Good luck, and thank you for being a loyal reader!

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I happen to have a wooden watch, complete with wooden bracelet, and I love it. Its a very wide bracelet and a heavy looking case, yet its the most comfortable watch I own, because there is absolutely no weight to it. I completely forget its even there.

  2. Wood has always been my favorite non-traditional material, and when I saw your previous coverage of this watch it shot to the top of my list of favorites. It’s a beauty.

  3. I saw many different materials being used for watches but the one i found most curious is the Giuliano Mazzuoli Cemento, whose case is partially made out of concrete. Not necessarily practical but an interesting idea indeed. On the more wearable style instead i’ll probably stick to ceramic as an alternate material

  4. I would have to say wood is my favorite. It feels more organic that a hunk of metal on my wrist. Plus, it is a fantastic conversation starter.

  5. Wood being a natural material seems like it would be perfect to make a watch from. I really enjoyed watching how this watch was made.

  6. I don’t have any watch that is not steel or plastic. I am making a transition to a vegan life for the sake of our planet, and I want a wooden watch to symbolize my motivation. I think this model will be perfect.
