OVI Watch, established by three social entrepreneurs from Latvia has recently launched a crowd-funding platform Indiegogo to manufacture unique hardwood watches and to fight deforestation in Latvia.
Behind OVI Watch are Davis Paipa, Gvido Asns and Zintis Sintceris: three social entrepreneurs and watch enthusiasts from Liepaja. OVI Watch concept includes manufacturing high quality, handmade hardwood watches from environmentally friendly materials. Part of the proceeds from every watch sold will go towards planting a new tree to fight deforestation.
Wood is the number one export good in Latvia,appreciated globally. It is used in many creative design objects, but has never been applied in high quality watch making. Realizing a free niche in their favorite industry, founders of OVI Watch knew that they have to take a chance.
Price starts from $79
Date of Delivery: Jun 2016
