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.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
