WATCH PRO – Breitling burnishes its green credentials by making Superocean watch straps out of discarded fishing nets
By Rob Corder
Breitling used this week’s summit in London to add an environmentally-friendly timepiece to its Superocean Héritage family.
The Héritage II Chronograph 44 was developed in partnership with Outerknown, a company that makes nylon fiber out of fishing nets that have been abandoned at sea.
“We are happy to have this chance to strengthen our collaboration with Kelly Slater, who is a member of our Surfers Squad and co-founder of Outerknown. Also, by introducing the Econyl yarn strap, we are taking another important step in our commitment to sustainability.
