Renowned watch houses offer the best in battery-free timepieces

It’s automatic – a battery-operated timepiece leaves a bigger carbon footprint on the environment.

Try an automatic self-winding watch instead. it’s a positive step in the eco-friendly direction. and for those looking to take their love for the Earth further, some companies are offering pieces powered by the sun, made entirely with eco-friendly materials and even making the switch to greener ways of doing business.

For now, however, a sturdy watch with automatic movement is a great way to contribute to the well-being of the Earth, without sacrificing fashion and elegance.

Many brands, such as Patek Phillipe and Omega, take pride in their lasting products, which often means a family heirloom that can be passed through the generations. Now that’s a great idea for sustainability.

But as for non-battery pieces, many brands offer automatic movements, that simply require – well, movement. it’s true that automatic watches generate their own power, thus minimizing environmental impact. Check out these battery-free creations courtesy of Tag Heuer, Cartier and Jaeger-LeCoultre
