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. However, there is something magical about a custom watch made from exotic wood and handcrafted by a local creative, that a smartphone or mass produced watch cannot replicate.
Bonheur Watches are handcrafted in Burlington, Ontario. Founder and lead designer Jay A’s 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 forged into each watch. The woodgrain is unique and cut to showoff the luxurious grain. Bonheur watches are performance tested and adaptable to any environment, guaranteed.
Exotic woods used in the watch are ethically sourced and obtained responsibly. The watch mechanisms are assembled in Japan using parts only 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. Bravely place your watch facedown as it is made of scratch resistant sapphire. 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. Most important, each watch is 100% Canadian produced and assembled, supporting Canadian families and artisans.
So if you’re interested in treating yourself to a timepiece you can pass down, or giving the gift of time to mark birthdays, wedding , and anniversaries, browse Bonheur’s catalogue here: https://bonheurwatch.com/
