Whether you’re shopping for your very first watch or adding to an existing collection, you’re likely facing the same challenge… you want premium features, attention-grabbing design, and superb quality. Here are six reasons guys like you are loving Ovi Watches.
1. The Ovi Story
We’ve been on an epic ride since we started up our watchmaking operation. The idea for a wooden watch came from our inventor/designer Ivo Asns (24), who was working on his thesis at the time. He decided to do his thesis about the wooden watch, because, as he says, “I like to work with wood and wear watches.”
Since neither Ivo nor his business partner, Davis Paipa (28), had watchmaking experience, it was a huge challenge for them. Undaunted, they focused on creating a beautiful, eco-friendly line of watches manufactured from recycled and reclaimed wood. The two partners eventually figured out the manufacturing process, and the final product is a high-quality, super light watch, suitable for wear for just about any occasion.
2. For the Love of Wood
Ovi Watch is a proudly Latvian company, founded in 2016. As you may already know, Latvia is heavily forested, and the country’s main export is wood. Latvian forests are certified, meaning that an outside agency has verified that they are managed in a sustainable manner.
Wood is 100 percent renewable, and it is an unusual watchmaking material – your watch will be one of a kind. The manufacture of wooden products also reduces the effects of climate change, since wood absorbs and stores carbon according to the concepts laid down in the Kyoto Protocol. In addition, wood products are long-lasting and eco-efficient.
We are not using any manufacturers to produce Ovi watches and to keep high quality we are producing all of the OVi Watch Collection in our hometown Liepaja.
3. We create iconic limited edition designs.
4. Their watches get plenty of compliments.
The Latvian wunderkinder behind the Ovi Watch have a good thing going, namely the ideal combination of cool factor and capabilities that might just win round die-hard watch classicists. Using a Swiss movement prized for its reliability (a quartz Ronda, caliber 762 3H, to be very precise), and premium sapphire glass over the usual mineral, reviewers say the quality is discernible.
The design is a cut above too, with an unusual button fastening and raised carved numerals rather than metal inlays, making this a real standout. - Carys Lowry-Carter
5. Design Your Own Watch
Choosing an Ovi custom-made wooden watch is a significant act of love for nature. At Ovi we have imagined a way of rendering this experience even more exclusive by offering the Personalized Ovi Watch, enabling lover of nature to share the privilege of personalizing their Ovi Watch.
The lines are from nature, clean, precise and, above all, elegant. With Personalized Ovi Watch you have the privilege to specifically select a signature of your choice on the top of the watch either at the front side or back side.
6. It’s run by young watchmakers with a mission
Ovi Watch Representing 1% of watches made outside of Asia.
Every day in Asia there is over one million watches produced per day, which later is sent to Europe, the United States, and other countries. We are doing something different with love for design and uniqueness; if you look at few biggest watch brands around the world, they have a similar design for timepieces. Simply because manufacturing in Asia doesn’t offer creating unique designs, or it is too expensive or maybe not possible for large quantity production runs.
Our mission is to create unique timepieces with touch nature.
