The Baume Ocean is an absolute game-changer for anyone looking for a sustainably made luxury timepiece. Issued by B&M as a limited edition piece, this is one you’ll want to jump on ASAP as an add-to-collection, or even as a daily-wearer if eco consciousness is really your thing.

Coming in a 42mm format, the watch features a Swiss-made automatic movement from Sellita (the SW200, to be specific) encased in a polished aluminum shell offering 3 ATM water resistance. There’s a 38-hour power reserve, though we can’t fathom why you’d take it off for that long.

You’ve got two choices of colorways: blue and green, of course, and the colors are reflected in the hands, on the dial, on the case, and in the stitching on the band. And let’s talk about that band for a sec, because it’s actually made of recycled PET (plastic) from the oceans, and lined with natural black cork.

The best part about this must-have piece? 5% of the sale proceeds from each watch get donated to Waste Free Oceans.

Now here’s the tricky party: getting your hands on one.

The only way we know of now is to actually call (yes, on the phone) Baume et Mercier to place your order. Check out their info here. And the price tag? A veritable bargain at $1,490.

Pro tip: Depending on when you make a move to get one, your luck might run thin. This is, after all, a limited edition. We’d advise getting a jump on the process ASAP.
