Tom Ford extends its collection of watches made using recycled materials with the Tom Ford Ocean Plastic N.004, a rectangular-cased series with a minimalist, number-free dial design.
Cased in a 27mm by 48.5mm semi-matte black or white recycled ‘ocean plastic’ case with a steel back, the quartz-powered series extends the brand’s eco-friendly ethos to its matching white or black strap, which is made entirely from the same recycled material as the case. The braided straps are similar to the black and white straps found on its round-cased, black-dialed Ocean Plastic watches that debuted earlier this year.
According to the company, each Swiss-made Ocean Plastic N.004 watch “permanently removes the equivalent of 35 bottles of plastic waste from the ocean, with all packaging being recyclable.”
Tom Ford says it plans to release a metal version of the watch this Fall made with 100% recycled steel.
The new model is dressier than the earlier Ocean Plastic designs, with elegant diamond cut hour and a minute hands, double-curved sapphire crystal and a crown made of either matte stainless steel with a white ocean plastic insert or a black PVD plating and black ocean plastic insert. No markers beyond the Tom Ford logo at 12 o’clock are visible.
