Time is a fleeting commodity we cannot buy back, so it’s important to keep track of it, down to the second. In today’s tech driven society, custom handcrafted watches have taken a backseat to the displays of our smartphones for time-telling. Smartphones cannot replicate the magic of artisan watches handcrafted from exotic wood.
Founder and lead designer Jay A handcrafts Bonheur Watches in Burlington Ontario. His passion for unique timepieces and functional designs makes him the ticking heart of Bonheur. A team of specialized wood artisans, horologists, assembly, and sales staff work to keep each watch exclusive. Rare exotic woods, Japanese machinery, powerful stones and steel are crafted into each watch. Woodgrain is unique and cut to showoff luxurious grain. Performance tested Bonheur watches adapt to any environment, guaranteed.
Exotic woods are ethically sourced and obtained responsibly. Watch mechanisms are built in Japan using parts sourced at Bonheur’s Japanese plants to ensure quality. Take a shower with your watch and run in the rain. Bonheur watches are water resistant to 3 ATM. Boneheur’s sapphire watch-faces are scratch resistant. Feel free to place your watch facedown. The dials on Bonheur watches, crafted from enamel, which if you didn’t know, is the strongest substance in the human body, last a lifetime. If you’re a watch handy man, each Bonheur includes self sizing tools. Briskly remove your watch with quick release straps offered in leather and wood. Each watch is 100% produced and assembled in Canada, supporting Canadian families and artisans.
