From Jakarta to Geneva: Lucius & Ki Blend Indonesian Woodwork with Swiss Watch Movements

Lucius & Ki watch

Lucius & Ki, a small Indonesian brand based in Jakarta, has made a name for itself as one of the more unusual boutique watchmakers on the planet. The dials are made of tropical wood sourced from Sumatra and the watches themselves are powered by ETA-sourced Swiss movements. Because of the organic nature of wood, no two watches look the same even if they share the same movement.

Every watch is hand-crafted from a carefully trimmed sliver of fragile wood that is just 0.02 inches thick.

Lucius & Ki buys its wood from a sustainable Sumatran supplier certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an independent organization promoting global environmental preservation.
