    'Timberrr'.... quite wooden in one's habits ....

    Just came across this place, interesting concept - for the eco warriors ?

    Not sure about pricing, maybe good idea for the kids ....

    I have one, obtained from a fellow MCGTGer. Phenomenally light, surprisingly accurate, very hard to fasten the clasp.

    My thinking was that as my life revolves around wood, it would be a visible statement of the inner Green Man.

    Also a no-brainer as to which watch I will wear at my funeral.

    I quite like them but their range is limited. They need to branch out more...

    I think that the TZ members who like these watches should form a splinter group...

    My prediction is that this will all turn to ash. I wish there was an alderternative to take to the beech in Cypress. That would be the cherry on the cake for us elders. My friends Holly and Hazel would no longer need to wear their firs. Very poplar indeed. Yew are bound to lichen it.

    You’d think the spec would’ve been more indus-tree-al.

    I think we all need to step back to look at the bigger picture, otherwise we run the risk of not seeing the wood for the trees.....

    Now now surely in times like this we should be more sap-portive than this! If we all start fighting the company making these watches will be left unchallenged to s-oak up the glory.

    I think there should be a root and branch reform to stop threads like this.
