Danevych’s amazing idea took time to take shape. The carpenter – who comes from a family of craftsmen – had no watchmaking training at all, but after studying the mechanical aspects of watches for around three years, his first fully-functioning watch began to come to life.
Each of these unique pieces present a different type of beauty, using exotic types of wood like juniper and bamboo to create the detail. But functionality is also a key principle to his designs: he uses birch for strength and resistance. The watches are traditional, and some have power reserves of around 20 hours.
To celebrate his success in the watchmaking world of design, Danevych was welcomed by the Horological Academy of Independent Creators last year.
