About Treehut Watches
We often think of Treehut as one of the first big companies that started to make wooden watches more mainstream. They weren’t actually the first, but they were on the cutting edge and have stayed relevant despite the explosion of wooden watch companies over the past few years due to their beautiful watches, engraving and great story.
The company was founded by Julia and her Husband Joh after a trip to Bali where they were inspired by nature, adventure, life and family. They set out to create a beautiful gift that could represent the uniqueness of each bond between people while allowing them to customize colors and engravings to match their love.
What started out in their apartment in San Francisco has grown to a company of 20 people and an 8,000 square foot office!
What Watch Movements Does Treehut Use?
Treehut sources their movements from companies that specialize in building watch movements. The exact movement will depend on which watch you choose, but they primarily use battery powered Japanese Quartz movements from Miyota.
These are high quality, accurate movements that are used in dozens of watch brands around the world ranging from Michael Kors, to Timex etc. With proper care, a Miyoto movement can easily last for a decade and probably many more.
Does Treehut Make Automatic Movement Watches?
Yes! Treehut does make watches with an automatic (self-winding) movement. Their first collection of mechanical movement watches is the Atlas Collection.
