Watch Out for Our Favourite Ethical Watches

If you find yourself pulling out your phone to tell the time more than to actually use it, it’s probably time to get a wristwatch. These sleek and stylish accessories are the perfect combination of fashion and function. If you’re on the hunt for a new timepiece, check out our list of men and women’s watch brands that are completely honest and totally modern.

WeWOOD - WeWOOD is one ethical fashion brand that makes most of their eco-friendly wooden watches from scrap-wood. They’ve also teamed up with tree-planting partners 'American Forests' and 'Trees For The Future'; through this collaboration, WeWOOD promises to plant a tree for every purchase made. So far, they’ve reached over 420,000! Talk about a great buy for the forests and for fashion.

Time IV Change - We love Time IV Change’s minimalist vegan leather watches for three main reasons: 1) their beautiful range is both animal- and human-approved; 2) they maintain an ethical supply chain from the manufacturer to the faux leather suppliers; and 3) 20% of the proceeds from each band goes towards one of six charities they work with. Can we buy them all?

Eone - Eone is an ethical fashion brand that believes good design is not exclusive, but inclusive. That’s why they’ve created their brand of edgy 3-D watches – each one is made to accommodate both sighted and vision impaired users equally. We’re head-over-heels for Eone’s inclusive designs that are both innovative and stunning in every way. 

Analog Watch Co. - Each design in Analog Watch Co.’s gender-neutral collection is carefully considered. The wood from their wooden pieces is made from off-cut lumber, and is naturally 80% biodegradable. Analog also partners with charities that plant trees, and fund education on environmental and mineral conservation. Their minimalist watches go with everything; with these geometric marble faces what’s not to love?

ochs und junior - The watches from ochs und junior’s collection are both edgy and ethical. Not only are all of their pieces locally assembled by hand in Switzerland, but also ochs und junior’s made-to-order pieces mean they can minimize waste. Even the leather and suede straps are vegetable-tanned; another conscious and environmentally friendly choice for this gorgeous brand.
