Bend / Hend Watch

Bend
Bend

In Search for a cheap material to work with, I have found a factory producing veneer surfaces for kitchens.
This factory throws large amounts of veneer sheets completely un-harmed, too small for their use Excellent for my use.

The different veneer sheets from the factory are laser cut, each watch is built from at least 13 layers of veneer. The color of the wood exposes the layers order.

The watch is then band and pasted. It is worn as a bracelet, using the flexibility of the veneer.
Except the mechanism and the glass the watch is made entirely out of wood which gives it a unique look.
