Moving to the bracelet, this has to be the one feature that really dresses up the Navigator Army. Constructed from 5 wood links, the bracelet rocks a darker wood along the outside, and a lighter wood along the middle, supporting the bezel of the watch. As I mentioned about the casing, wood is unique piece by piece. The bracelet of the Navigator Army shows tons of grain personality, and is a true focal point of the watch for me. The only grief I have with the bracelet is the jewelry clasp used. I know options are limited with the types of clasps for wood watches, I just personally have never been fond of jewelry claps, as I always have a struggle trying to unclasp the clasp on wrist.
I will admit I was a bit hesitant about reviewing a wood watch, as I really never had the desire or interest too, but I’m glad I did. Overall, I am really impressed with the Navigator Army by Konifer, as it really opened my eyes to wood watches. The Navigator is quality built, by hand that is, and is 100% natural wood. Lightweight, and comfortable to wear, I encourage you to check out the Konifer website and give one of their watches a shot. With summer right around corner, this would be a good add to your summer time collection.

Thank you to Max Clement for supplying the Navigator Army for review.
