Certina has always felt a great affinity for the oceans of our world. Whether it is participating in underwater research projects, the development of pioneering diver's watches or our partnership with the Sea Turtle Conservancy: We feel a deep connection with the element of water.
That is why we love the idea behind #tide ocean material®. Together with scientists from Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences OST, the committed team has developed an award-winning method of mechanically upcycling plastic waste from the oceans. The upcycled material is then made into cool, robust and high-quality watch straps, for example, which will be featured on a few of our timepieces from now on. We would like to invite you to discover this new, colourful aspect of Certina.
