Mining Materials

The process of mining materials used to create watches is one of the most damaging parts of the watch-making industry. From traditional gold or copper to rare earth metals such as neodymium and yttrium, extractive processes are often incredibly energy-intensive and can cause significant environmental damage.



During the production of watches, various chemicals are used to shape and craft materials into the final product. These chemicals can be released into the environment, leading to air and water pollution.



The process of disassembling watches is a major contributing factor to environmental damage. Watches often contain various types of plastic, rubber, and metal components that can be difficult to recycle or repurpose.
