#tide ECO, 46 mm, Sustainable Outdoor Watch
#tide ocean material® is made from 100% ocean-bound plastic, developed in partnership with Swiss scientists. On five islands in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Thailand, local fishermen are being trained and paid to gather and sort plastic waste. This material is registered, washed, shredded and turned into a granular material that can be injected or spun into a yarn. #tide has just launched a third product: Filament that can be used for 3D-Printing.
In the #tide Luminox timepiece, this 100% recycled material is used to make the case, bezel, and strap.
Case and dialThe blue case features a grey wave textured dial with sapphire crystal and a 3R’s (Reduce Reuse Recycle) logo at 6 o'clock.
Our sustainable outdoor watch comes with green and orange light tubes, that are visible in any conditions without having to be charged by an external source. This proven technology uses tritium gas encased in sophisticated tubes, and the tritium gas is itself recycled.
The timepiece is housed by a blue case made from 100% recycled ocean waste.
Strap made from #tide ocean waste materialThe ECO series watch comes with a signature buckle, quick release spring bars and a dark grey strap in 24 mm. The material of the strap is called #tide ocean material, which is made from 100% ocean-bound plastic.
All straps with the same lug width fit the watch.

About #tide ocean material®The material is made from 100% ocean-bound plastic, developed in partnership with Swiss scientists. On five islands in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Thailand, local fishermen are being trained and paid to gather and sort plastic waste. The #tide material starts out as this collected plastic waste, which is then broken down by a sophisticated sustainable process to its base particles. These are treated, cleaned, and then shredded so that they can be injected, just like the original plastic it once was. In this way, Luminox reuses this material, reduces the impact on the planet, and helps to clean up the ocean, while also helping these indigenous people learn a new skill and make a regular income.
