Raising awareness and promoting recycling
BAUME and ZAG are guided by the same principles – disrupting their respective industries by adopting sustainable practices, challenging the status quo to shift its mindset on environmental impact, and taking on current pressing issues around material waste and re-use head on.
The BAUME x ZAG Limited Edition watch will be available exclusively on www.baumewatches.com. Only 100 of the BAUME x ZAG watches will be available to purchase worldwide, retailing for $1,350.
Recycled skis and plastic bottles: the importance of re-use
The new BAUME x ZAG watch, featuring an automatic Miyota movement, has a 42mm casing made using excess materials from the production of ZAG professional skis. The casing is made up of two materials: natural wood and carbon. A blue anodized aluminium container encapsulates the movement and clips onto the casing to protect the movement from any external damage and ensures water-resistance.
Adding a sports luxe feel, the BAUME x ZAG Limited Edition watch comes with two interchangeable straps: a white version with cork lining and blue stitching, and a blue version with cork lining and yellow stitching. The yarn of the white strap is made from recycled PET, sourced from plastic bottles fished from the oceans by NGO and long term BAUME collaborator Waste Free Oceans (WFO).
In celebration of the BAUME x ZAG launch, is donating a portion of the sales of each ZAG 2 sold to ProtectOurWinters, a non-profit whose mission is to turn outdoor enthusiasts into climate advocates.
