Over the past year or so, we’ve covered a number of Time for Action watches from Triwa, with many of the more recent ones featuring cases made of recycled ocean plastic. Fittingly, for the material, their latest collaboration is the Triwa x Sea Shepherd.
Who – or what – is Sea Shepherd? It’s the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and they’re doing what they can to help preserve our aquatic ecosystems. That seems to fit right in with pulling plastic from the oceans and recycling it into something else – like a watch case and watch strap. So, it’s a very literal way to put ocean conservancy into action, in our book.
Of course, if you pick up your own Triwa x Sea Shepherd, you’ll be proudly flying the Sea Shepherd colors on your wrist, as well as helping to support the organization. You see, 15% of the proceeds of selling the watch (which runs $159) will be going directly to Sea Shepherd. Check out the details over at triwa.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.
