Building a Sustainable Future: Our Commitment to Eco-Friendly Practices

we care about sustainability

Welcome to our sustainable page, where imperfection meets innovation! At HK Watches, we believe in giving imperfect parts a second chance at life. Instead of discarding them due to minor scratches or imperfections, we’ve embarked on a mission to breathe new life into these cases by crafting unique and eco-friendly products. Our inaugural offering? Stylish keychains made from these reclaimed materials.

Join us in our commitment to sustainability by choosing one of our keychains. 

Each keychain tells a unique story

The watch industry grapples with imperfect products, leading to 20% of watch cases and parts being discarded due to minor cosmetic flaws. This results in significant material waste, energy consumption, and CO2 emissions. To address this, enhanced quality control, sustainable supply chain practices, and consumer education are vital. Investing in technology, designing durable products, and promoting awareness can help reduce the industry’s environmental impact and foster sustainability.

By giving these "almost perfect" parts a second chance, we're not only reducing waste but also taking a step towards a more sustainable future.

LET'S Design your Accs.

At HERMANN KOBLER WATCHES, we believe in creating beautiful, high-quality watches while minimizing our environmental impact. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our new range of keychains, crafted from “almost perfect” watch cases.

These cases may have minor imperfections, such as a small scratch, that prevent them from meeting our strict quality standards for watches. However, these imperfections are purely aesthetic and do not affect the functionality of the case.

Instead of discarding these cases, we’ve given them a second life by transforming them into unique and stylish keychains. This approach allows us to reduce waste and promote a circular economy, where resources are kept in use for as long as possible.

Second Life for almost perfect Parts

More Than Just Keychains

It’s a commitment to sustainability?! We use recycled materials and repurpose “almost perfect” parts to minimise our environmental impact. While we can’t provide exact CO2 reduction figures for each keychain, our commitment to eco-friendly practices is unwavering. Join us in protecting the planet while enjoying quality products.

the story behind the HK Keychains

BUT WHY keychains

Ever wondered what happens to watch parts  that don’t quite meet perfection standards?

Ever wondered what happens to watch parts that don’t quite meet perfection standards? At HERMANN KOBLER WATCHES, we’ve found the answer: they get a second chance at life. Our sustainable keychains are born from the idea of repurposing these imperfect cases into something new and meaningful.

But why keychains? Because they’re more than just accessories; they’re daily reminders of our commitment to sustainability. Each keychain is meticulously crafted from reclaimed materials, showcasing the beauty of imperfection and the potential for transformation.

By choosing one of our keychains, you’re not just adding a stylish accessory to your collection; you’re making a statement about your values. Join us in our mission to reduce waste and promote sustainability, one keychain at a time..

The Problem with the almost perfects parts

Sustainability on various levels is worthwhile in many respects. Not only does this statement strengthen the brand itself, but furthermore also reassures our conscience and that of the target consumer. In short, this means that the aspect of sustainability will be increasingly addressed in the future and taken into account more strongly in the choice of raw materials (e.g., vegan leather straps) and component producers (keep the distance between the suppliers as short as possible). 

This comes as the aspect of sustainability has so far not been addressed sufficiently in the watch industry as a whole or only in the very high-end watchmaking.

By repurposing “almost perfect” cases that would otherwise be wasted, we’re not only reducing our environmental footprint but also spreading awareness about the importance of embracing the circular economy.

With every purchase, you're not just acquiring a functional accessory; you're supporting a movement towards a greener, more sustainable future.
