What was the trending topic in 2018? If you think it was #KikiChallenge or #10YearsChallenge, you are completely wrong.
On Instagram or Facebook there were so many discussions about climate changes, eco friendly materials, how we can save our planet etc. The fashion and watch industries are aware of this global issue and want take a part on this.
World’s leading designers such as Gucci pledged its commitment to sustainability and transparency of their latest creations by using eco friendly materials for their “Gucci Equilibrium” collections. And this trending countinues in 2019!
But, what does sustainibily exactly mean?
“Sustainability is the process of maintaining change in a balanced environment, in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations.”(“What is sustainability”. www.globalfootprints.org)
Sorrento: Sustainable Timepiece
One of the watchmakers which is aware of this issue is Spinnaker.
Paying tribute to the world of yatching, Spinnaker is specialized in producing nautical watches, which combine the best of engineering prowess, technical skills, strength and determination.
Taking a part on the sustainibilty lifestyle is a credo of the upcoming Spinnaker’s collection. Et voila! SORRENTO is the result of this commitment.
For this hands-on I received the Sorrento with the brown dial – the colour of the wood or the colour of the narure. This automatic timepiece is inspired by the nautical traditions of wooden hulled rundaround speed boats and yachts found on the coastlines and lakes of Italy.
So, which sustainable material is used for the Sorrento Family? Instead of using the endangered teak wood, Spinnaker uses sustainably sourced Rosewood.
The brown dial is designed in harmony to the overall look of the watch, with a clearcut presentation of the facetted hour indexes, minute track around a gentle horizontally etched center. It is definetely an eye-catching timepiece!
This fashionable and sustainable watch is also reasonably priced – at only USD 310,-
Its water resistant up to 10 ATM makes SORRENTO wearable on water. And especially, its unique luxurious, organic appeal makes this watch also look stylish and fashionable on land. Definetely a must-have timepice for nautical lovers!
