Fossil has launched limited edition solar-powered watch for their ongoing commitment to create products for social and environmental impact. The outer ring of the Fossil Solar watch case acts as a solar panel, capturing light and converting it to energy using a solar cell beneath the dial. It then stores the energy in a rechargeable battery that powers the movement of the watch. Once fully charged, the Solar Watch is expected to run for around 4 months before you will need to charge it again as stated by the company.
The Solar Watch of Fossil comes equipped with five pull-through straps, which are made with yarn spun from approximately 16 plastic bottles (16oz). That is 16 fewer bottles in a landfill, or an ocean or a national park, and one step closer to a greener future.
Fossil has partnered with EcoMatcher to plant a tree in honor of each person who purchases the Solar Watch. Wearers will have to simply follow the instructions inside the Solar Watch’s box to name their tree, see where it is planted and track its CO2 performance.
The Fossil Solar Watch is available in a limited edition of 1,754 pieces for each size – 36mm and 42mm. Encased in a partially bio-based plastic case made from environmentally-friendly castor oil, this watch retails for INR 9,995 in India and is available on Fossil.in and at select Fossil retail stores.
