Because wood is not the right material for precision, inside the naturally looking wood watches from Tense you find a 100% stainless steel gear responsible of keeping time. Like many modern watches today, Tense wood watches are equipped with a Japanese Miyota Movement (a very popular clock and watch movements manufacturer).

According to Tense, their watches are hypoallergenic because they are made of 100% natural wood. From pale to dark, wood types used in Tense watches include sandalwood, rosewood, maple wood, butternut wood, walnut and bamboo. Tense designs its watches cases in different shapes : circular shape, oval and cubic.
