Skagen Henrickson Solar is A Green Dream for Woke Watch Fans

Are you woke? Fantastic, and congratulations on your gender-neutral Blue Peter badges. No doubt you’ll want to ditch that nasty battery powered wristwatch you currently own, and replace it with something like the Skagen Henrickson Solar, which features a solar cell power unit, plus a strap made from recycled plastic.

Actually, the savings to the planet by ditching battery powered watches are huge, as a typical solar cell lasts ten years or so, instead of 2-3 years for a battery watch. So yeah, seriously, solar watches are a good thing.

The actual movement holder inside the case is partially made from castor oil, which reduces the plastic content too. Plus the packaging around the watch is made from recycled paper.

Fantastic news, but the downside is that the new Skagen Henrickson costs £195, putting it beyond the reach of many poor working class people. Not very inclusive we think, because solar watches like this need to retail at inder £100 if we are going to really change the watch industry.
