Plastic is all around us and unfortunately it is not going away any time soon. We use it daily in our packaging, containers, and water bottles, to mention a few. In the 1970's, a healthier, more eco-friendly alternative to plastic was developed, now known commonly as PET. PET stands for "Polyethylene Terephthalate", which now utilized and recognized as the more eco-friendly option for the clear plastic we use for water and soda bottle containers. PET has gained notoriety and recognition as being the plastic alternative that holds reputable characteristics, such as being safe, recyclable, strong yet lightweight, non-toxic, and flexible. This material is so fantastic in that it is 100% recyclable, and it can be used to replace plastic in many items that we go through in our daily lives. Here at Mondaine, we want to give back a little to the environment so we have launched an innovative design to the SBB collection.
The SBB Fall 2017 Collection is an extension of the Classic collection, in that these models preserve the signature SBB watch face and the red dail hands, except this watch face has a new black tone rather than the classic white. The watch has beautiful grey felt-like straps that are layered on genuine leather, coupled with intricate dark grey stitching. The stainless steel case comes in a brushed finish and in an ion plated option. Each watch face is protected by an ultra-scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
