Based on the design of the famous Swiss Railways Clock, this bold, clean watch is as stylish as it is eco-conscious: the Mondaine Essence is made with renewable materials.
The case is made from Rizinus, or castor oil, which is cultivated from the seeds of the tropical wonder tree.” The oil is extracted from the seeds by a mechanical pressing process and is then processed in granulate form to create a bio plastic. This is the first time this type of material has been used in the watch industry.
The very durable and comfortable strap is made of natural rubber. The watch comes with a multi-purpose storage pouch that is made from recycled PET bottles.
