The Marc men’s chronograph integrates burl wood and brushed stainless steel in a balanced design that marries the materials together with grace. A welcome addition to your business casual attire and a happy hour favorite offering a down to earth real world charm without sacrificing the polish.
Being that type of hands on guy that many of us are, we can all appreciate the beauty of a handcrafted wooden product. We’re always big fans of such personal work, but for wearability the piece needs to have an aesthetic balance as well as coming off classy and ultimately refined. Part of OG’s Alterra Chronograph collection, The Marc watch is able to showcase its wood elements without coming off like a woodshop project gone too far.
The integration of Burl Wood appears around the bezel as well as the dialface and secondary dials. Embedded Burl wood accents adorn each segment of the brushed stainless steel bracelet. The handcrafted wood accents and stainless steel compliment each other enhancing each other’s presence.
