Products Wood Watch
This "Wood Watch" wrist watch casing is made from Arboform® "liquid wood".

ARBOFORM® shows very little mould shrinkage. So it allows very tight manufacturing tolerances to be met. Creep properties are good which is utilized in the constant pressure from the springs in the watch casing.

Unlike the use of plastics, which show sink marks in the situation, there is no problem in changing wall thicknesses from 1 mm to, for instance, as much as 50 mm in one step.
