At Original Grain we make watches for Time Well Spent. Founded in 2013 when brothers Ryan and Andrew Beltran were inspired to create a watch that simply didn’t exist. Influenced by their roots growing up in the Pacific Northwest, the mission was to create unique timepieces that seamlessly integrate natural wood and stainless steel.
Today, Original Grain is not only known for the craftsmanship that goes into each design, but the stories that can be told about the materials used. From reclaimed whiskey barrels and baseball bats to recycled ocean plastic, Original Grain is committed to creating one-of-a-kind products with sustainable materials.
To us, craftsmanship means using only the finest sustainably sourced hardwoods on the planet- materials that tell a story. Preserving the character of these reclaimed materials, be it Kentucky bourbon barrel wood or miliary ammo crates, our goal is to create a watch you're proud to wear and know will last.
With an unwavering commitment to authenticity, innovation, and next-level craftsmanship, Original Grain has emerged (in an otherwise crowded watch category) as a world-class leader for timepieces.
Behind the Craft
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Relying on her mighty resources as we do, there was never any doubt we’d be giving back to Mother Nature in spades. Our partnership with Trees for the Future in Senegal ensures that for every watch purchased, a tree is planted in a region where it’s about much more than beautification—it’s a building block to reducing poverty, feeding families, and changing lives. Original Grain remains 100% committed to giving back to the global community and striving for a better tomorrow.
TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING TECHNIQUES
The speed of technology is moving at a blistering pace, but when it comes to craftsmanship, we choose traditional over trendy. That means using only the finest time-tested raw materials. It means strictly adhering to age-old woodworking techniques. And it means sacrificing a few extra hours each day to handcraft each timepiece to perfection.
NO TWO WATCHES ARE THE SAME
Painstakingly preserving the character and patterns ingrained in each piece of timber - be it from Kentucky Bourbon barrels or Yankee™ Stadium seats - means every timepiece is a one of its kind, born to chronicle.
SUSTAINABLY SOURCED MATERIALS
We pride ourselves on being good stewards of the environment. That means strategically designing each timepiece to use a minimum amount of wood to its maximum effect—not one grain is wasted. It also means actively partnering with Trees for the Future in Senegal, proudly planting a new tree for every watch sold.
