What inspires brothers to create a watch integrating hardwood and stainless steel? Growing up in the Pacific Northwest doesn’t hurt! In 2013 Ryan and Andrew Beltran felt there was a void in watch craftsmanship using all types of wood grains (Rosewood, Ebony, Mahogany, Maple and even watches made from whiskey barrels)?
Further, with each watch sold Original Grains commits to planting trees, alleviating hunger and reducing poverty in Senegal, Africa by partnering with the Forest Garden Program. This program creates a systemic and sustainable ecosystem for the Senegal African community, which impacts over 12,000 lives.
If there is a whiskey lover in your life we highly recommend their bourbon barrel watches created with re-purposed wood from American Oak Bourbon Barrels.
