This Month, Pray For Guarding The Nature But in Style. Did You Know Your Timepieces Can Save Nature Too? If Not, Now You Do!
What we wear on our wrists represents the personality we wear all the time. While one can’t directly change his/her personality in a blimp, they surely can change what they wear on their wrists. Representing chic contemporary – watches come with many faces and many hands. While the gist of each watch remains the same, they feel miles apart. If we give you a smartwatch on one wrist and quartz on the other, you can easily tell the difference too in a single touch. Today’s era is quite different from that of the latter and one thing that prospered quite prominently is the wave of eco-friendly. As with everything else, this wave has also taken over the watch industry. So, today we have got some eco-friendly alternatives in this era of depletion!
- TOM FORD OCEAN PLASTIC
Tom Ford is an American fashion designer known for his zeal for fashion.
Launched more recently in 2005, this brand was founded by its eponymous founder; Tom Ford. He is an American fashion designer known for his zeal for fashion and an inclination toward filmmaking. Speculations were that he had a big role in the revival of the house of Gucci.
What do you first think of while listening to Ocean Plastic? Are you thinking about the waste plastic that’s found in the ocean? If you are, then bingo! It’s the correct answer. This black beauty is made up of the waste plastic found in the ocean.
Although, the watch comes with a stainless-steel casing; it is made by mixing ocean plastic with stainless steel and even in the crown there is a tint of ocean plastic, steel, and black DLC. The strap is also made by handpicking and crafting the ocean plastic. The eco-friendliness doesn’t end here – they also choose recycled boxes and papers for their packaging.
- VINCERO VESSEL
The looks of this timepiece seem inspired by an aviation watch with that edgy and sharp design all along.
Not even a decade old, Vincero was founded in 2014 with a vision to revolutionise the watch industry by manufacturing watches at an affordable price and not comprising on the quality a bit. It was a surprise but Vincero watches are one of the trendiest watches of today’s time.
Vincero Vessel also falls in the same category. It is not only one of the brand’s most risky choices but also one of the most popular by being the best seller of 2019. The looks of this timepiece seem inspired by an aviation watch with that edgy and sharp design all along.
Talking of the eco-friendly element – this watch is 100% carbon-neutral. Carbon emissions are one of the most devastating and one of the most damaging problems that prey wide open upon nature and it is one of the main reasons for the greenhouse gas effect that haunts our future generations.
- TENSE CAMBRIDGE CHRONO
Chrono is made up of high-quality wood that gives it a unique finishing that no other watch gives.
Are you the one who craves something different all the time? Well, different is synonymous with Tense Watches since 1971. This time, coming from Canada, Tense watches are handmade and designed with precision to details.
As the Chrono is also made up of high-quality wood that gives it a unique finishing that no other watch gives. Nothing fancier with the lithium powered 0S90 Miyota movement it runs well.
Wood is the primary material used in this watch – this wood is 100% recycled and reclaimed, which minimises the natural damage and discourages cutting wood. Talking about the strap, they are made up of 100% vegan leather. Even for the bracelets, wooden was the primary material. Tense is also a part of the 1% Planet partnership and donates 1% of the proceeds towards various green organisations.
- G-SHOCK FROGMAN
Taking a first look at the watch, it looks out of a sports era. With that cluttered dial and screws upfront, it is one of the most durable watches out there.
Also unfurled like an actual shock to the watchmaking industry, G-shock was founded in 1983 and coming directly from the house of Japanese watchmaker Casio – it built a trust factor right away. Although, Casio watches are tough too – G-Shock is made to last an eternity and that too full of ups and downs.
The frogman is not another name for a marvel character but a very popular watch from G-Shock. Taking a first look at the watch, it looks out of a sports era. With that cluttered dial and screws upfront, it is one of the most durable watches out there.
But what can be eco-friendly in such a watch as G-Shock? While every other watch is busy taking power supplies from various sources, G-Shock Frogman takes the power from the sun. Solar power is its only source of energy with Casio’s “Solar Technology”. It not only saves energy but also nullifies the wastage of the watch as you don’t have to throw or repair this watch even after an eternity. Thanks to solar power- we can see our time clear yet being eco-friendly.
