CUSTOM WATCH CASE 

 Wooden Watch Cases - Maker Watch Co.

Each case is custom cast, CNC cut, hand-sanded, and finished with a clear coat so strong we got rocks asking us to seal them! We assemble it all and complete a rigorous quality control check all by hand.

 

Our watch cases are a hybrid of resin and wood. The wood undergoes a stabilization process to make it stronger and less vulnerable to expansion and contraction due to temperature and humidity changes. It's then cast with resin and a little creative magic to make some of the most insane visions come to life.

The entire process takes approximately 54 hours from start to finish when we cast in-house. We generally use burls for this process (Maple Burl, Box Elder & Buckeye Burl) as the live edge creates the most visually appealing finished product.

 

Deranged Donkey - Pourcasso - Maker Watch Co.

 

Some of our case material is sourced from Pourcasso, aka Deranged Donkey. Pourcasso is a wizard when it comes to resin casting. In our opinion, this shop from the Bay Area of California is at the top of the game when it comes to creating the most unique stabilized wood and resin casts. Creators alike source Pourcasso products to make pens, shift knobs, knife handles and now for the first time, watch cases!


The possibilities are limitless with our watch cases - You think it, and we'll do our best to bring it to life. Check out our Portfolio to get an idea of what we can do. Let's chat further and see what's possible to build you the most unique watch case on the planet.

Our movement of choice is the Citizen Miyota 8N24 automatic movement. We’ve personally owned watches powered by this movement for almost a decade! One of our first builds took an impromptu dip into the washing machine to try and get clean...needless to say we had to do some repairs but that 8N24 still runs strong today and no batteries required! Woohoo!!
