Humanium Metal is not the elusive material the protagonists in the coming Avatar movie are trying to protect. It’s far more important, actually. Humanium Metal is made from illegal firearms that have been melted down. For TRIWA’s latest run of watches, the brand teamed with IM Swedish Development Partner to obtain the metal and use it in crafting the timepieces. TRIWA took the metal and molded it into the watch cases seen here. While the attractive timepieces are worth copping regardless, the purchase of Humanium Metal also helps the societies where the firearms were originally collected, as a portion of the proceeds go to support the victims of armed violence. The entire collection is up on Kickstarter now and it has already crushed its funding goal.

Timex-MK1-Chronograph-Black-IF2

[Shop]  The original Timex Military Watch was designed based on two things: ruggedness and simplicity. Ruggedness to stand up to the demands of a soldier, and simplicity so the time could be grasped with a passing glance. That doesn’t mean such a watch couldn’t receive some updates, however. This is the MK1 Chronograph, a reimagining of the original military watch. Now packed with a chronograph, this Timex still allows for easy readability, only now you can use it as a stopwatch as well. Built with a robust aluminum case that’s strong yet light and a double-layer black slip-through band, the Timex MK1 Chronograph is as comfortable and stylish as it is dependable.
