A fundamental human flaw is that we do not take care of our Earth nearly as well as we should. This is especially the case with our oceans and corresponding sea life. A recent article written by Laura Parker of National Geographic suggests that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea. This is a troubling statistic and one that watch manufacturer Triwa is hoping to change with their beautiful timepiece made completely from recycled ocean plastic.
Triwa design watches with stories that transcend style, trends, and status that they hope can highlight important issues of our time. They work with innovative materials, organizations, and ambassadors that care about making the world a little better. Hoping to be part of the solution rather than the problem, this drove the company to explore how they can create something that makes a statement, is sustainable, gives back, and looks good too, thus, the ocean plastic watch was born.
Together with the Swiss organization – Tide Ocean Material – the ocean waste is transformed into premium granules with the help of solar energy, and then remolded into the foundation of the watch. Available in a plethora of colors, the watch features a classic 37mm 3D wave polished dial with a recycled plastic nylon wrist band and is powered by Miyota 2035 quartz movement. Aesthetically, we love its svelte styling and oversized luminous indexes and hands that make it easy to read day or night, and combined with the domed mineral glass, it is quite the conversation starter which was exactly what Triwa intended.
The watch also features an adventure-proof 10ATM water resistance and is incredibly light and comfortable on the wrist. The available colors are vibrant and Summery, the price is very affordable at less than $150, and best of all for every watch sold, you help to clean the oceans from more plastic and take a stand for the health of our oceans.
