Solios, just launched into the UK. Launched in Montreal, Canada in 2019, Solios is the first solar powered watch to combine eco-responsibility with a minimalist design. Solios are also the first ever watch company to have received a B-Corp certification of “social and environmental performance”, a private certification of for-profit companies, distinct from the legal designation as a Benefit corporation.
The unisex watches available in 36 and 40mm dials feature a 7.5mm thin case, just 2 hours of natural or artificial light powers the watch for 6 months. The solar technology allows the watch to recharge itself forever so the battery will not need replacing. With interchangable straps made from stainless steel mesh or eco leather, could it really be the only watch you will ever need?
Solios are a brand putting their money where their mouth is, particularly when it comes to sustainability. Main collection watches retail at £240. Offering free shipping. All packaging is handmade in Montreal from 100% recyclable card, FSC certified. Plus, if that want enough, for every watch sold, Solios will protect one acre of the Rainforest.
Solios has also just launched their first limited edition watch in collaboration with the Make-A-Wish Foundation with blue face in gold and silver dials. For every watch sold Solios will donate £30 to the foundation.
