Gift watch – what should a watch have to be a proper gift?


Celebrations usually involve the purchase of gifts, it is not surprising that it is stressful for people looking for something suitable, which also will fit the situation and satisfy the recipients.

A gift watch is a very risky investment, but if we know the taste and lifestyle of a person well, we can easily try to find something interesting. However, we must follow a few basic principles.


First of all, we need to set budget possibilities, because buying a cheap watch, for a person who is more likely to like branded products, will be a bad choice and if we are not able to allocate a sufficient amount to match the standards of a loved one, it is better to let this purchase and choose something else. Mid-range watches, however, already made in a really solid way, you can buy in the price range of 400 – 800 PLN and such production will certainly be an excellent choice.


Since we already know how much we can spend on the purchase, now you should ask yourself which gift watch to choose best? We have a lot of possibilities at our disposal, starting with bracelets, going through leather, webbing and rubber belts, ending with low and high envelopes. If the jubilarian is the type of man who spends his time mainly in an official outfit, he cares about the elegant look in every situation and values the class, the best choice will be a subtle model with a leather belt. You can easily fit it into everyday clothes and suits, so it’s the most versatile one.

For teenagers and those who like sports clothes in the main, models made of synthetic materials are the best solutions. The bracelet will work for people who do not have to wear elegant outfits too often. An interesting idea that is becoming more and more popular among people bored with routine is the selection of watches made of wood. They fit into everyday shirts and sports style. They can, however, be demanding in terms of cleaning and care, so if you buy a gift to someone who simply does not have time to clean the watch daily, it’s better to choose something more classic.


Now we have a visual issue. Gift watches do not have to be always elegant and if you can afford to buy something interesting, you should choose a model with interesting colors. The size of the envelope and its height need to be adjusted to individual preferences. People with a narrow wrist and slender hands will not look very well in wide bracelets and belts, large and tall envelopes. It is better to choose something delicate. On the other hand, high-ranking men should use their dimensions, having massive productions, because they will not, in a sense, “disappear” on their hands.

The choice is huge, but we can only buy such a gift for a person we know very well, otherwise, it may be dissatisfied and simply not use the gift received.


Bracelet or leather belt – style and beauty in the watches for every occasion

Can a man look better in a situation when he is dressed in a jacket and elegant trousers tailor-made and has genuine leather Italian shoes? Well, it will look spectacular but without the proper additions, which will emphasize the rest of the dress, unfortunately the impression will not be electrifying. Speaking of watches and clips, of course. Matching the watch to the current outfit says a lot about the man, so you need to take care of every detail in your outfit.


We have two basic options available, i.e. a classic leather strap and a bracelet. Most young men usually choose solutions such as a stainless steel bracelet, not being able to match it well with the rest. The thickness and size are very important because the watch should only be an addition, which will emphasize our taste. It should not be in the foreground because we run the risk of negative comments and opinions. It is also worth mentioning that the bracelet at the watch is accepted only when we put on a sports suit or every day. If our outfit is evening, we should choose a model with a leather belt.

Well, bracelets can also be elegant, but they look much better when it comes to casual, loose and even sports clothes. If we put on a shirt to work, we can easily allow a watch with a bracelet, but if it is an official dinner with the boss, a company banquet, or even a wedding, it is better to put on a belt.



Walking around the streets of the city, we can pay attention to a small detail, most men have on their wrist a leather strap in the watch and surprise here – in most cases, they are not dressed in evening suits. Why is this happening? Well, the answer is very simple. Natural leather strap in the watch, great for any type of clothing. It is a subtle highlight of elegance and even the establishment of a classic sports jersey will look more pleasing to the eye.

Men who often wear elegant and evening outfits may even have several types of belts or complete watches in their equipment. In this way, they can choose the right color, color, and additions to the rest of the set. Replacing the straps is not complicated because in most cases, using a small flat screwdriver, in a few seconds we will undermine the special spring and mount a new belt. When choosing a bracelet, unfortunately, we will need a special tool and skill, so it will not be so easy and fast.

Counting all the pros and cons, it can be said that if we can not decide on the right watch model, the best offer will be to buy a timepiece with a leather strap that will add elegance and style to any occasion.


Mechanisms in wooden watches

Wooden watches have been popular on the market for many years. It is, in a sense, a return to the roots of manually making timepieces. Pocket watches made of wood began to be produced in the first half of the nineteenth century, they were dealt with by artists from the Bronnikov family, and their products were even admired by Russian Tsars.

At present, it is safe to say that they survive the second birth because the mechanisms in watches are much more accurate at much smaller sizes. Which of them will be the best choice in value for money? It is worth considering, especially if you intend to buy a handmade piece of art that is completely unique. The watch will serve us proudly for many years, and with proper care, we can confidently say that over time its value will only grow. Wooden watches are equipped with modern countdown systems and mechanisms that have a “soul”.


In a sense, this is the most desirable mechanism for customers, because it guarantees very high accuracy and no need to replace the battery or tension. Automatic mechanism winds up thanks to the spontaneous physical activity of the body, thus storing energy, so that after putting it on the shelf, it can easily lie down for a few days. In the case of people with a collection of watches, it is worth buying a special box that constantly moves and winds up our entire system for further work.

The combination of an automatic mechanism, with a hand-made watch in an artistic way will give us something special so that we will have a unique watch.


In the case of slightly cheaper products, we can expect the use of popular solutions such as quartz mechanisms, which are as good and precise as automatic, but their price is much lower. The difference in price comes from a very simple reason – the mechanism is much less complicated and is powered by a battery, which should be replaced on average once every two years.

Given that quartz watches are much cheaper, the craft itself is valued very high due to the accuracy and uniqueness of choosing. Having a wooden watch with an automatic mechanism is a combination of a unique look with the mechanical precision of watches.

Mechanisms in watches usually most effectively raise the price of the product up, so if we do not have a sufficiently large budget or do not want to spend too much money on the mechanisms of automatic models powered by batteries will work just as well (quartz mechanisms). However, let’s use the offer of native artists and craftsmen who are able to provide their customers with a very prestigious product, which are hand-made wooden watches. With time, we can expect that their price will increase with the popularity of the artist, so it is worth constantly taking care of your timer and treat it as a possible investment for the future.


Wooden watches – how to take care of impregnation?

Deciding on wooden watches, we must remember about the appropriate preparation of accessories for impregnation and nurturing them, so that they would serve us proudly for as long as possible. Wood is a much more delicate material than stainless steel, from which most watches are made, so wiping and polishing your timer once a week, unfortunately, may not be enough.


Self-impregnation of wooden watches is not the best idea, especially if we do not have the right skills and tools that will allow us to achieve satisfying results. Many manufacturers of such accessories, very often to create their best quality products, use special preparations that have been developed for specific models. The impregnation will wipe over time during use, so if you notice the first signs of the aging of the watch, the best idea will be contact with the producer himself. In the end, no one knows his product better, and hence, he will be able to professionally advise us what we can do.

If the product was made by a craftsman and an artist, we can expect that he will offer us help and we will have to send the watch we bought to him. Naturally, such a service may be additionally payable, so if we want to maintain the best quality for many years and we want to make corrections over time, it is worth setting the issue earlier, sending even a message to the producer, or by contacting the phone.



However, care is a completely different matter, because not only is it necessary, but it can be safely said that it is required for wooden watches.

This delicate material very much does not like contact with all kinds of chemicals, i.e. detergents for cleaning, and we should even be careful to contact with perfumes that contain alcohol in their composition. Care of wooden watches is not particularly complicated because after each day we should only wipe them with a soft cloth that will be moistened with clean water beforehand.

Unfortunately, we should not leave our watch anywhere and subject it to a lot of sunlight, because it can affect its color and hardness of the varnish. The proverbial “throwing in the corner” can cause scratches, through which the wood will later become damp. The best solution will be to buy a special box, which inside is filled with a delicate material, we will be able to hide your watch every day, without any fear that something may happen to it.

Most of us have probably wondered if this is a game worth the candle. Relax, if we want to see in the first place how the care of a wooden watch looks like, we can always buy a model that will have a webbing or leather belt, because we will have much less work with it.

Wooden bracelet in the watch – eco trend

For years, we have been observing the growing popularity of the topic of ecology and how it gains hearts, more and more people. In a sense, it can be said that eco has already come to the subject of fashion and accessories, taking over the market with its unique style. A wooden bracelet on watches can look amazingly elegant and tasteful, but it will not fit any type of outfit.

Timers made of wood are nothing new, but only recently have become popular, because people are constantly looking for something completely new, and a wooden bracelet will certainly attract the attention of others. It suits everyday business shirts, but the choice of such a watch for an evening dress may look too abstract for our interlocutors.

Watches with wood bracelet


They are mainly light and delicate, so they will not cause discomfort during many hours of use, which is often a problem in the case of more massive stainless steel production. They also fit into everyday outfits, so putting on a t-shirt and jeans will not be a problem at all.

The current market is very large, we can find artists on it, making their products manually in an artistic way, thanks to which we will obtain an extremely unique and precise execution. We do not have to worry that we are closed to models made one hundred percent from this raw material, because in a wide range of products, there is such a possibility as replacing a wooden bracelet with a leather strap.



Deciding on a watch made of wood, we will have to pay special attention to the care of your choice. Although the wood is varnished with a special protective preparation, however, each of us is perfectly aware of the everyday life and its consequences. All you have to do is place your hand on the desk and move it around the desk when filling out documents, or reaching for a piece of paper. Varnish in this way can be quickly wiped, and unprotected wood will quickly lose its attractive appearance. The envelope and bracelet should be wiped daily with a soft cloth that has been slightly moistened with water – wood does not like sweat, which is constantly secreted by our body. Contact with detergents and perfumes is also not advisable when wearing wooden watches.

The purchase of such a clock is a very responsible decision and if we care about long life, we have to be very careful about it. If we protect it from water and scratches, it will stay with us for a long time and its appearance will be perfect all the time.

Fashion is not always convenient and often requires a lot of sacrifice from us, so before buying such a wristwatch, we must seriously consider our choice. It is a good idea to buy the first watch, which will have a webbing or leather strap, to see if we are interested in such a solution, how they look at our hands and how our feelings look like.


Engraving in wood – dedication for every occasion

Looking for gifts for special occasions for your loved ones, or something interesting for colleagues and contractors, we often use the possibility of engraving. It is a very tasteful and elegant addition that will constantly remind you of the donor. Engraving wooden watches is also possible and presents really surprisingly great!

Engraving in wood is very durable and will not affect the life of our watch, so putting a few important words on the envelope, can bring the other side even more joy from the received gift.

The engraving in most professional companies is for free, we only need to indicate when ordering that we are interested in such a service, at the same time define our needs and what is to be placed on the product. For wooden watches, there is often an addition in the form of a wooden card, on which we can place longer wishes and a few words from each other. If such a service is free, because the company from which we order our range has the ability to perform such a range of activities, it is certainly worth using it for yourself by placing a funny inscription on your watch.


Usually, we find solutions such as firing or inscription engraved in wood, it can arouse mixed feelings in many users, because such a serious interference will affect the varnish. We do not have to worry about it, however, because the product is finally secured after detecting elements ordered by the customer. The engraving can also be in a different color, because wooden watches are varnished with special preparations that not only protect the material but also darken or brighten the wood, in this way we can get a bright inscription when you buy a dark watch.

An engraver on wood is very durable and if the person using his watch will properly care for him, he can be sure that he will not lose his luster, and the engraved inscription will not be destroyed.


Well, such companies as Giacomo Design also offer us great opportunities to place interesting designs, so we do not have to worry that if we have an interesting idea for the project, it will not be possible to implement.

Engraving watches in such a way may be an interesting idea for companies that will want to offer a gift to their client or an employee who created a given place for a very long time. On the envelope of such a watch, you can put even the logo of the company, adding to this wish, so that the person could feel really appreciated for their work and effort put in every day.

The Giacomo Design company does not limit the possibilities of its clients by offering them a really wide range of fonts in the catalog. Thanks to this, everyone will perfectly match the idea to their requirements. Wood can introduce a few restrictions because it is a bit more difficult material when working, so all selected fonts must be filled inside.


Wood in watches – maple, oak or maybe walnut?

We can often find the opinion that wooden watches are made in the same way and they look almost the same. Well, the same can be said for people who are looking for and want to buy a wooden wardrobe. The watches are also made of various types of wood, which gives us different hardness, density, and weight.


It is relatively easy to process, making it very often used for making watches, it also has a light color, an even structure and, above all, medium hardness. With its help, you can make very interesting contrasting projects, which will be used such raw material as ebony wood.


If there is a topic of hardwood, most oak comes to the first thought and it is a very good choice because just look at the wonderful furniture and home furnishings that are prepared from this raw material. It’s hardness and durability can surprise you very much. A watch made of such a raw material will certainly serve you bravely for a very long period of time, especially if it is properly impregnated and nurtured.

Another very hard and durable wood, which is used in the case of more expensive models of watches, will be even a nut, which, after proper preparation, will be a very luxurious final product.


We can meet with different combinations and can only be additional elements to create a contrast or as the main material that will create a unique and unique product. Such materials include, among others, pink tree, or even sandal wood.

Another interesting idea may be, among others, acacia, because after proper treatment it will look incredibly elegant and the very fact of having a watch that has been made of acacia is already a very attractive alternative.


If our watch is to be an ecological product, the use of synthetic materials would not make much sense, so you will not be surprised at the fact that you can usually count on a natural stone, which will be extremely impressive. At this point, some may ask how it is a stone, after all, such a watch will be heavy. Not necessarily, because it is a very thin and well-polished layer, and the wood itself is very light, so in a sense, it’s very much balanced.

The stone is seemingly an extremely durable material, but with such a delicate layer, we have to watch out for your watch even more, because one delicate fall from a small height, can cause very large damage and ordinary spillage of our supplement.

The possibilities are huge, and the only thing that limits us is the imagination of ourselves and the skills of artists, so if we only have an interesting idea that belongs to unusual solutions, it is worth trying to find a person who will not only be willing to try to create such a watch but also it’s the best.



Zegarek z drewna - Najwyższa jakość w najlepszej cenie


It is always said that the price is not a determinant of quality – not really! If you want to compare the quality of materials used, with products for tens of gold, just put a cheap wooden watch next to the model, which cost between 600 – 800 zlotys. The difference will be visible to the naked eye in materials and workmanship. If we are able to try on a given watch, the difference in price of both watches from wood will be colossal! The construction of slightly more expensive watches will be more solid and will last much more time than a cheaper watch.

Wooden watches are extremely delicate, so you should choose the right manufacturer before buying, which will make every effort to ensure that its product is as resistant to all destructive factors as possible.



The price of wooden watches can depend on many factors, it is the wood used in the production. The amount used may also be increased by the mechanism used. Quartz movement watches will be cheaper than watches with an automatic mechanism. They are just as precise, but the watch with automatic tension has a soul. Wooden watches, in which the automatic mechanism was applied, will be much more expensive and can cost even more than PLN 1,000.


People who start their adventure with wooden watches should take into account models that have a webbing or leather belt for a very simple reason. Not everyone will like this material in use, and the care of such a strip is much easier. The price of a watch with a leather or leather strap is lower than the price of a wooden watch with a wooden bracelet. We will buy such a watch at prices around 300 – 400 PLN, thus convincing ourselves that it is worth investing in a wooden watch with a bracelet in the future.

Do not buy counterfeit models at a low price, because the quality of their performance raises many reservations at first glance. Low-quality models that will work very briefly can effectively discourage the purchase of another wooden watch and unduly pinned a defect of a faulty product to other watches.


Zegarki z niską kopertą – szyk i elegancja


The man is wearing a jacket, leather slippers, and an elegant fashionable shirt, while his partner has a well-fitting dress. They both also wear accessories that emphasize the rest of the design elements. Most of us will immediately think that they are intelligent and well-off people. However, to make such an impression, you should know how to emphasize the rest to look good!


The time when the watch had to have a wide bracelet and the watch was massive and visible was gone forever. The role of large and massive watches has been taken over by smartwatches, which are very popular on the Polish market. Young people and those who practice different sports use them sharply. Currently, the wide bracelet and high watch case are associated with the lack of tact and an attempt to attract attention, which allows us to be assessed very negatively by the environment. The low case of the watch guarantees us the complete opposite of the situation and elegance in all its glory!

The device on which we constantly check the time is a smartphone, but the watches remained on our wrists for a simple reason – the full function of classic jewelry, which among women and men is problematic and not always suitably matched. Among the ladies, it is the only possible choice because their wrists are much narrower, so a high envelope would look very unsightly and immediately throw your eyes into the eye. The final effect depends on our imagination and what we want to achieve by wearing a watch – whether we want to stand out from the crowd or whether we want to remain neutral.


 Zegarek z wysoką kopertą


Is throwing away our watch, which has a high envelope is the only solution? Easy, everything depends mainly on our stature. If you are a tall person and as a massive figure, a watch with a low envelope can simply disappear or look like a cheap hand allowance that is disproportionate to the posture. The low envelope is designed for slim and delicate posture.

For example, putting two men next to each other, one of which will have a watch with a low envelope, 170 cm tall and 60 kg weight and a second individual, having a timer with a high envelope, a height of 190 cm and a weight of 100 kg, a watch on their hands it will look relatively similar and will look proportional to the figure.



The offer of almost all stores selling watches on the Internet, we find models with a low envelope, which will have both webbing, leather, rubber belts and bracelets. However, the situation is different in the case of high watch envelopes, because the use of a leather, delicate and narrow belt will look rather unattractive.

The watch is best to try in person, especially if you want to spend a large amount of money on its purchase. This is, after all, an element that will serve us faithfully for many years, so we do not have to worry that a similar expense will be waiting for us in a month. Thanks to this, we can afford a bit different purchases.



However, if we want to make an electrifying impression on others, a good choice will be the use of sophisticated gadgets and jewelry in this watch! The leather strap for the watch will perfectly emphasize our taste and attention to detail. The use of a belt in the watch adds to the elegance.


Entering the living room with watches very often we can find a huge selection of watches without a strap, which can be purchased separately. Have we ever wondered why this treatment should be used? The sale of watches without a belt allows you to choose the right belt by the buyer without imposing a specific style on it. Thanks to this solution, the buyer can immediately choose the watch strap that suits his needs. In the case of watches, which are more expensive in the set, we get several watch straps that we can change ourselves.

People wearing watches pay great attention to the correct matching of the color, tone, and color of the strap to the rest of the outfit. Buying several watch straps is dictated by the fact that you will be able to choose the right strap for your current outfit. This approach is more economical in terms of having a few or a dozen watches with a fairly limited budget for accessories in the form of jewelry or watches.

The installation of a new watch strap is not complicated. We only need a special tool to replace the straps or a very small flat screwdriver. In this way, we only need a few minutes to enjoy our new look of the watch.



Replacing the bracelet with a belt and vice versa is not a complicated operation. Keep in mind that not every watch. Which has been manufactured with a bracelet will look good with a webbing belt or with a belt made of genuine leather. The decision to replace the bracelet with a strap carries more commitment and additional tools. However, it is possible to replace the bracelet with a belt. Attaching the strap to the massive watch that the bracelet was on can be a completely new understanding of the watch.


Seriously and modern without skin? Yes, it is also possible! An interesting solution that appeared relatively recently is even a wristband watch that conquers the hearts of enthusiasts and people who value the practicality and convenience of wearing watches on a daily basis. Going with the times, more and more people using watches on a daily basis chooses practical solutions that will not be a hindrance to their work.

The trends that the timers deal with are very variable. A multitude of colors, various types of watch straps, including material straps, webbing straps, natural leather straps or synthetic leather straps, allow you to freely choose the arrangement of your watch to suit your preferences.

People, who already have wooden watches certainly repeatedly asked themselves this question: How to care for a wooden watch, so that it could be used as long as possible? Certainly, a big plus will be the regularity in the maintenance of a wooden watch. If this is the first contact with a wooden watch, it will be a good idea to choose a model with a leather belt or a leather belt. There is a lot less work with them and we will be able to learn new everyday activities. The more demanding element of the watch will be a wooden bracelet, to which you should have the right accessories and impregnations to fully take care of its maintenance.

Drewniany zegarek i drewniana bransoleta -


Each watch should have a cotton cloth (ideally the same ones that are used in the case of glasses for spectacles), a short-haired brush, a container with compressed air. First, carefully wipe your wooden watch with a dry cloth and then perform the same process with a damp cloth soaked in water. This is to get rid of the remains of sweat, the dust that we left on your watch, during the whole day of use. The next step will be to clean hard-to-reach places, eg. Combination of wooden watch case with a belt of the aforementioned brush. Thanks to this, we will get rid of the dust that has accumulated in this small space. The last element is cleaning the watch with compressed air, which will quickly clean up the remains that we missed or were hard to access.

If we have a watch model, which is made of wood, which includes even a bracelet, it will be a good idea to use special preparations for cleaning wooden surfaces. These preparations will add gloss and create a special protective layer to protect the wood in the watch from moisture. An interesting remedy is also a special preparation to remove scratches, so it’s worth equipping yourself right away. These preparations form a protective coating on the wood that prevents scratches on the wood.

An interesting idea is to buy a special box that is used to store watches. It is finished on the inside with a very soft material so that our watch will not be accidentally scratched or damaged. Given its lower scratch resistance than traditional watches with a metal envelope, one fall, splash, a scratch can even destroy the mechanism, not to mention the external elements.

If you have decided on a wooden watch model that has a whole bracelet made of wood, you may find that our use is bad in relation to this material. We must first pay attention to whether we do not rub our wooden watch on the desk or table top during everyday tasks. Unfortunately, we must expect different types of impacts, as this is unavoidable, and each of them may damage the paint and wooden material. The best choice then will be contacting the manufacturer, who will advise us to use the methods of re-varnishing a wooden watch or undertake such a treatment for us.
