Hublot and Nespresso unveil a watch made from recycled coffee capsules

Hublot joins forces with Nespresso for an eco-responsible collaboration – the first circular creation between a Nyon manufacturer and a coffee brand.

Nespresso Second Life, the programme behind the new Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origins, aims to create new partner products by recycling aluminium from used capsules.

The watch-case is made entirely of recycled aluminium, 28% comes from Nespresso capsules, and these are also used in the composition of the bezel, the crown and the pushers of the watch. The bracelet is made of 95% recycled polyester and 5% coffee grounds.

200 limited-edition pieces were designed, enabling Hublot to launch its new case, the Greenbox – a more sustainable packaging, designed in oak wood, with traceable materials from short circuits. The Greenbox will now be part of all Hublot’s watch collections.

It took the teams a year of R&D to achieve colour homogeneity in the seven materials making up the watch, to find the right proportions of materials and finally to carry out quality and durability tests on all the elements of the product,” explains Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
