Hmm...  I wonder what else can they recycle to make watch cases.

Totally agree!

Well, they've had a free recycling program for several years...

No idea what they did with them, though.

So no discount for recycled

Pay more😭 I'd expect nespresso could subsidize some to help offset their waste footprint and use up some of those used pods.

Chopard's Alpine Eagle watch is made from recycled steel!

Lucent A223 steel is made by a foundry specially for Chopard. It uses at least 70% recycled steel. It's also smelted twice. Resulting in a 30% reduction in greenhouse emissions. The resulting steel is whiter, brighter, harder, and more scratch resistant t... 

For sure

But that is to help chopard be more eco, for their image. This is hublot helping nestle offset eco issues with all the plastic for their pods, they could def subsidize a consumer of hublot making nestle more esg. Not like nestle is a selling point for hub... 

I wish! Nestle? Subsidizing? Unfortunately, that's not how it works in reality...

When Hublot partners with Nestle, Nestle is expecting like 20% of royalties on the sales revenue Hublot gets on the watches! Nestle is now a business partner. So costs are HIGHER! Because Hublot and Nestle now have to SHARE THE MONEY! NESTLE is expecting ...

Most collaboration there is benefit to both sides. I guess I fail to see nestle helping sell watches. But I don't know I'm no executive!

In this particular case, I don't think the executive at Hublot nor at Nestle did a good job.

I think that you'd have done a better job. Besides, why does a watch made from coffee pods look like Matcha Green Tea? Can someone at Nestle or Hublot explain that to me??? Both of us could've done better jobs. They should hire us as management consultant... 

Sounds good to me!

How about a WPS collaboration, they would sell more than these green things 🀣

Maybe someday!

We still remember the Zenith we designed with JCB, and Biver himself presented it to all of our members at Baselworld. At least the members who came to Basel to pick up their watches in person.

wow it seems very nice !! πŸ‘

but I am not super sure about the aluminium cases in general (Hublot did it already but seemed not as robust as steel or titanium)

That’s good coffee

I waited when Hublot made a green that is under 43mm case width. I mean not a sapphire or with three tourbillons. A payable Big Bang that is green that not made for 250 mm wrists. Here she is, and i discover her on the Hublot website, and was curious if o...
