Two amazing vegan watch companies
Here are two 100% vegan watch companies that you can count on for a timeless cruelty-free accessory. Both of these vegan watch companies donate a percentage of each sale to charity and use high-quality materials.
Votch is an incredible brand new company launching this month, August 2016. Their watches come in five color combinations and are super modern and stylish. 10% of each watch sale goes to a charity that rotates monthly. The current charity is Viva, a UK based vegan advocacy organization. You can choose from tan with a white face and gold case, and black with a white face and gold case, pastel pink with a white face and rose gold case, light grey with a white face and silver case, and dark grey on black. The watch piece itself incorporates high quality Japanese movement with mineral crystal glass. All watches come with stainless steel casing and come in their own vegan eco felt pouch. What we love most about these watches are the details. The band is embossed with VEGAN LEATHER on the underside, and the clasps are engraved with a tiny V mark. You can reserve your Votch watch through their limited presale now. Watches will ship next month.
TIVC stands for Time For Change. Their 100% vegan watch line comes in a variety of colors and 20% of sales benefit a different charity, depending on the band color.
If you choose to not go with a 100% vegan company, then be sure to be extra careful about double-checking the materials. Many companies don’t actually know what their watch bands are made from. Unfortunately, mislabeling is really common. You could buy a watch that’s advertised as faux leather, only to find out upon receiving it that it’s actually made from animal parts.
