Whisper clockwork by Dugena

Dugena is a traditional brand known for its precision, reliability and high-quality workmanship. A special feature of Dugena is the "Made in Germany" label, which the brand proudly wears on its watches. This means that the clocks are manufactured and assembled in Germany, ensuring high quality and reliability.

Dugena has a long history dating back to 1917. The name "Dugena" stands for "Deutsche Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft Alpina", which was founded in 1917 as an association of watchmakers to jointly produce high-quality watches.

Dugena began producing wristwatches in the 1920s and soon gained a reputation for its precise and reliable timepieces. In the 1950s, Dugena launched the first German automatic watch, setting a new standard in the watch industry.

Today Dugena is known for its classic and timeless designs.

Miracle material cork

Cork is an outstanding material in many ways. The cork comes from cork oaks, which are cultivated in sustainable forestry in Portugal. Cultivation and harvesting is a traditional occupation with a good income. The oaks produce a new cork bark every time they are peeled and bind 3 times as much CO2 as without harvest. However, peeling is only possible by hand. Too deep a cut prevents the bark from forming again.

Back made of cork granulate

Cork is a very sustainable material. It is the starting material for many applications, including our cork fabric for backpacks and mobile phone cases. During processing, of course, there are also residues, such as the cork granules. Products made from it are therefore a contribution to the sustainable use of our resources. It is also 100% natural and recyclable.

Thanks to the stable wooden ring, the cork disc is stable like wood. It is produced in the Netherlands.

Why a wall clock from smukbird®? 

We, that is Manu and Bogdan, with a lot of experience in felt and cork accessories. Since 2008 we have been managing companies that produce and sell felt products. Since 2021 with our own small company Smukbird®. 

Our contribution to the environment

Our contribution to the environment is not just the use of sustainable, natural and long-lasting materials for your wall clock, designed by Anja Streese. In addition, we plant three trees with every item shipped and thus support the reforestation projects of the global organization “Eden Reforestation Projects”. Here, unemployed farmers in Madagascar, for example, can earn their own living again through reforestation and at the same time valuable mangrove forests are being renaturalized.
