A Watchmaking Extraordinaire Who Crafts Complete Wristwatches from Wood (44 pics)

Posted in Arts » Beautiful   8 Jun 2013   / 7883 views

Ukranian born, Valerii Danevych is a watchmaker who specialises in crafting one-of-a-kind watches entirely out of wood.

 

He has dedicated his life to the trade and starting making functional wristwatches in 2005 and by 2008, he had completed his first working wooden pocket watch. He has since perfected the art using only one metal spring in the whole design. His most recent watch took 1800 hours to complete and is selling for $132,500 (€100,000).

He is an incredible craftsman, there's no doubt about that but, the watches are NOT made entirely of wood as he uses a metal spring (as noted in the 3rd sentence above). Plus, he can price it at any level he wishes, but has he sold any at $132k?
