It appears SWATCH is on to something. These are nice looking. Be interesting to know what ML's formulation is.
the AIKON #tide is helping to make the oceans a little bit cleaner, thanks to revolutionary technology that converts discarded plastic waste into Swiss quality watches.

Case : Made from ocean-bound upcycled plastic & Strap : Black rubber
Water resistance to 10 ATM
40mm


Interesting read about ml commitment to ocean plastic recovery

Forbes said they use fiberglass and as yet "undisclosed" materials to formulate the composite. ML's commitment to use 10 million bottles will yield almost 600,000 watches - perhaps another model or two will be in store if these sell through.

According to ABTW, ML won't reveal the movement they used other than to specify Swiss Quartz, which is curious. The website indeed specifies only, quartz. I suppose as they hit the market someone in the horo-media will open one and we'll know soon enough.

Still nothing on the movement - what the hell is the big secret?

Indeed- but ML won't specify what movement they are using which I find curious.
