Sustainable Luxury Watches To Covet

Companies are now waking up to the fact that products need to be produced in a sustainable fashion both to preserve our planet and for the discerning consumer. 

We picked some of our favourite watches from the finest brands employing genuine efforts to clean up their manufacture. Watch companies that check the provenance of their suppliers and pay them correctly, including conflict free gems and ethical gold.  Some pay a percentage of their sales to cleaning up the environment and the seas. Whilst others use bio plastic cases, natural rubber and recycled packaging.

Why You Wont Find Us At Baselworld by Raphael Granito, CEO of Formex Watches
You may have recently read a variety of articles reporting on the dramatic changes in the world’s most important watch fair. These changes have been building over the past few years and should be worrying for organizers as the numbers speak very clearly. 2017 saw a decrease of 200 exhibitors from the previous year and this year, another whopping 600 exhibitors decided not to join the show, effectively cutting last year’s numbers in half.
