What type of steel do you use?
What is Automatic movement?
"Automatic” is just another term for “self-winding”, meaning the watch winds itself using a weight inside the watch that oscillates to put tension on the mainspring through the random motion of the watch wearer's arm. Batteries not included — or needed.
What wood types do you use?
We use all sorts of exotic hardwoods including Rosewood, Ebony Wood, Maplewood, Verawood, Mahogany Wood, Sapele Wood, Zebrawood, Burl Wood, American Oak Whiskey Barrel.
All our woods are naturally sourced and treated, After our wood goes through the handcrafted process this same wood continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment.
Wood will change color over time as it’s exposed to air and sunlight. Wood is also a hard thing to replicate over and over. We find this as a valuable part of our company as NO 2 watches will ever look the same, making them truly original.
We use 316L Stainless Steel. Our watches have not been treated with potential allergenic spray, We do caution people who have allergies to Nickel , Steel, Wood or polyurethane to make sure you do not come in contact with these watches or other watches who use these materials.
Can I get my watch engraved?
Unfortunately we do not offer engraving services, but there is space above/underneath our “Original Grain” emblem on the back of the watch that can be engraved. We suggest taking the watch to a local jeweler or engraving company to be engraved. This does not apply to the Automatic styles as it has a skeleton case backing.
Are the watches waterproof?
What kind of movement do your watches feature?
Our watches are recommended as “Splash Proof” meaning minimal water exposure, will have no problems keeping your watch looking fresh. We do not recommend long periods of exposure or full submersion in water. We don’t offer warranty for water damage.
Currently our only fully waterproof watch is the Burl Wood Chronograph
and the Alterra Redline Chronograph.
These watches feature an epoxy coating that protects the wood and is 10 ATM water resistance.
The majority of our watches contain a Japanese Quartz Miyota Movement. This is a reliable and popular movement.
We also offer an Automatic 8215 Miyota Movement (21 Jewels / 40 Hour Power Reserve) in our Automatic watches
For more information about each watch, see here.
How do I adjust the band?
How do I set the time and date?
To set the time you have to pull the "Crown" out two clicks and turn clockwise to desired time. For the date, push the crown in one half click (you will feel it move and slightly click) then you can turn the Crown counterclockwise in which the date will start moving. Another option would be to change the date by changing the time until you reach the accurate date.
Original Grain watch bands are adjustable to fit most any size wrist. It’s likely that your watch will need to be adjusted before properly wearing.
We strongly advise that you take your watch to a watch professional who can use the proper tools to either add or remove links, depending on the size of your wrist.
