Lorenzo Buffa set his goals pretty modestly. When he started his Kickstarter campaign, he figured $10,000 should cover initial production costs for his all-natural wood watches.

With three days left to go for bids, he’s already raised more than $61,000. The project is the highest rated on Kickstarter for the region.

“It’s fantastic. I’m totally elated,” Buffa said.
