In an era when so much of fashion is disposable, we try to look out for style pieces that stand the test of time. However, we sometimes come across accessories that are just too cool too pass on, of which the Flud Big Ben Wood Watch epitomizes.
Aptly named the London Big Ben, Flud has created a traditional granddaddy clock face, but the real selling point is that it’s made from wood. From the wooden dials to interchangeable wood-linked bands, the Flud Big Ben wood watch comes in four different materials, Oak, Black wood, Redwood and Birch.
Unlike the Ralph Lauren Sporting Chronograph we previously reviewed, the Big Ben wood watch isn’t subtle and it won’t go under the radar. It demands attention from the moment you shake your wrist to check the time on its large 48mm clock face. The clock face is detailed and the woodwork is also finely crafted.
We like how the Flud Big Ben watch also comes with leather stitched bands and silicone bands so you can chop and change the style of the strap.
It also comes in a rather spiffy case.

PS. On a random note, if you notice, four of the five watch faces above are set to ten past ten. That’s because the hands evokes a smiling face which (supposedly) make people more inclined to purchase. Most online retailed have their watches set to this time.
