Time for the planet. Blending style with sustainability, several leading watch manufacturers have embraced eco-friendly timekeeping.
This unique Swiss-made timepiece from artisan watchmakers H. Moser & Cie. is a garden on your wrist. A reminder of how precious and fragile planet earth is, Moser Nature Watch is a symbol of the watch manufacturer’s commitment to promoting sustainable and respectful development. The steel case is adorned with succulents, moss, mini echeveria, cress, spiderwort and onion. The dial is natural mineral stone and lichen from the Swiss Alps and the strap is made from grass.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is the result of Breitling’s partnership with sustainable apparel manufacturer Outerknown, co-founded by surfing legend Kelly Slater. In a nod to the oceans in which Slater surfs, the unique blue NATO strap is woven from ECONYL® yarn, a material produced from recycled nylon waste such as discarded fishing nets from oceans around the world.
Every year, discarded nets kill nearly 100,000 whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals and turtles, according to World Animal Protection. Partnering with environmentalist Ben Lecomte, Ulysse Nardin is using polyamide yarn recycled from fishing nets for a new waterproof wrist strap, compatible with their Diver 44mm, Diver 42mm, Diver Chronograph, Marine Torpilleur and Freak X timepieces.
Purified and recycled metal from Mike Horn’s exploration yacht makes the Submersible EcoPangaea™ Tourbillon GMT – 50mm namesake a sustainable piece of history on your wrist. Water-resistant to 300 meters, it is the perfect boating companion.
Ethically sourced gold is at the heart of Chopard’s Alpine Eagle collection of chronographs. The 44-millimeter case and bracelet are crafted in 18-carat rose gold with a flyback function inspired by the power of the eagle and the Alps. The power reserve is 60 hours.
