Everyone get on board the ocean plastic train, because this one is chugging right along. Earlier today, we saw a new Shinola model using ocean plastic from #tide, and we’ve also talked about Triwa’s efforts with the same material. While Christopher Ward works in steel-cased watches, they offer textile straps – including one made with recycled ocean plastic.
On the surface, the Christoper Ward C60 #tide Strap looks much like any other woven textile strap – a bit of a weave, fairly smooth texture, and a bit of splash with the pale blue contrast stripe down the middle. The secret is hiding in plain view, of course – the plastic here is coming from material that #tide harvested. As the product page mentions, this was originally created for the C60 Blue, but it will fit into any watch with 20mm lugs. And easily so, with the quick-change spring bars.
If you’re looking to pick up a Christoper Ward C60 #tide Strap for your collection – go into it forewarned. At $75 this will no doubt be the priciest woven strap you’ve gotten for a watch. But, hey, you’re helping save the oceans, right? christopherward.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
