Looking for a new timepiece? These sustainable watch brands are creating an eco-friendly alternative to one of the most practical things we wear - the watch! As someone who tries to be on their phone very little, I like to wear a watch to tell the time to avoid the constant checking of the phone. There are a few brands I have personally tried and love, which I’ve included in this list, along with a few others I’ve heard great things about.
What makes a watch ‘sustainable’?
I look for a few things when determining if a watch brand can be added to this list. The first, who made them? Each watch brand should have high standards in their factories and support ethical production. The second, what are they made from? Many of these brands use non-conflict and recycled materials to create their watches (one even uses solar to power - pretty amazing!). The third, what is the quality? Are these watches something you can wear for many years? Are they versatile? Are they affordable and accessible price-wise? We ask many questions before adding a new watch brand, and these have all passed the bill.
Now, our top picks for the best sustainable & eco-friendly watches:
These beautiful watches from WoodWatch are so timeless. This ethical brand fights against climate change by planting 3 trees for each product sold. To date, they’ve planted 120,000 trees thanks to their customers!
You can add custom engraving on the back of the watches, which make for a perfect gift. Plus, they offer free worldwide shipping, a 45-day return policy, & a 2- year warranty.
Travis and I both have a watch from this brand, and love them! Nordgreen’s Chief Designer is inspired by nature and a desire to get a little simplicity back into our lives. Their interchangeable straps come in natural stainless steel links or vegan leather (made with both virgin and recycled synthetics), and make the watches very versatile. Their entire production is carbon offset and they partner with Danish factories that ensure ethical labor practices. Plus, every purchase gives back to one of three causes.
