Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. To stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases, visit our tag page.
The ocean is no place for plastic trash, but your wrist just might be — at least, if it’s in the form of an attractive watch. Triwa is among a handful of watch brands that have partnered with organizations helping to clean and protect the oceans. Some have focused on raising awareness and financial support, or even making straps from recovered plastic. Triwa, however, goes a step further with its Ocean Plastic watches, using straps and cases made of upcycled material.
Not only do the watches represent a good cause, but they’re good-looking and affordable. Available in four colors, each measures 37mm wide and is water-resistant to 100m — so they can go right back in the ocean and come out working without a problem. They’re also lightweight and styled in a way that will feel right at home on the beach or surfboard, with casual, summery colors and dials that feature an embossed, 3D wave pattern.
Available directly from the brand for preorder now (delivery by end of April 2020), each version is powered by a Japanese quartz movement from Miyota and has a price equivalent to about $150.
