In 2019, we developed the first watch case completely composed of of re-engineered, fishing nets and ropes responding to the code name Re:FN-S1
The first iteration of a new generation of more efficient and more resistant recycled plastics, this project represents a major step in our vision of responsible innovation.
TOWARDS UPCYCLING AND UPGRADING MARINE WASTE
Fishing nets represent nearly 50% of the continent's plastic waste, and constitute a permanent danger for aquatic fauna. Collecting them and giving them a second life in new applications is an extraordinary opportunity to transform environmental threats into sustainable resources.

RECYCLED FISHING NETS AND ROPES, A REGENERATED MATERIAL WITH EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE.
This composite material of recycled marine litter offers unprecedented performance in terms of lightness, strength and durability.
Much more successful than standard (recycled) plastic, our upcycled fishing nets are the symbiosis between technical performance, quality and impeccable finishes.
A MATERIAL THAT WILL DEMOCRATIZE WASTE UPCYCLING
To work with waste is to conceive objects from an assembly design. We mix the materials, we compose the colors, we highlight the imperfections. We are convinced that this new aestheticism will allow a logical transition of practices and uses towards a more responsible mode of consumption.
Today we are able to create unique and exclusive composites, each with their own signature, their identity. Finally, each watch becomes unique, each Awake carries a message, an attitude, a style, which embodies this futuristic and committed lifestyle for which we are fighting.

A CIRCULAR PROJECT OF COLLECTION AND WASTE TREATMENT
In order to guarantee a short supply chain, our fishing nets are collected by our partner PLASTIX. Thanks to their experience, we thus benefit from a qualitative and traceable supply of our raw materials, which will then be processed locally in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
