SWII Solar rPet Watch: It’s About Time for Sustainable Watches

Born in 2016, One Eleven watches act and look as if they have been around since your great grandparents. With timeless beauty in the slim profile design, One Eleven turned to sustainability and giving back to the environments they play in.

The rPet 42mm One Eleven watch isn’t as flashy as their previous models (see SW1 Solar review). The dials are matte and in brighter, bolder colors. The cases are constructed with environmentally friendly reclaimed castor bean oil and the wrist straps are made from recycled plastic bottles.

Quality Construction and Design

Made with the same hardened mineral crystal lens as the SW1 line, the rPet One Eleven watch is also water resistant to 10A ATM. The rPet One Eleven watch does not have a date feature. However, it is a unisex watch! By making one watch that can fit a variety of frames, One Eleven is true to their sustainability model.

The dial is a simplistic design with dash lines instead of numbers and the One Eleven logo at 12 o’clock. I love that this is just a watch. It doesn’t tell me the altitude, who is calling, what my steps are for the day, etc. It tells me the time and that is all I want my watch to do.

The 22mm nylon straps are comfortable enough to wear all day long. They also repel water and wash up well after a messy day outside. The stainless steel caseback to the plastic case sits nicely on my wrist and is the perfect low profile to fit easily under base layer, gloves or my jackets without feeling bulky.

Retailing at $125.00 the rPet One Eleven watch is a great value for a timepiece that will handle to great outdoors as well as the hectic indoors. With the solar charging capabilities of the rPet and the whole line of watches from One Eleven, you do not need to carry charging pods or cables and can rest assure that your rPet watch will be keeping track of the time so you can enjoy it.

One Eleven doesn’t just make watches, they also have a great blog on their website that is updated regularly. They have gear suggestions, trip information and some all-around fun information.

One Eleven watches can be purchased on their website. A small selection of watches can be found on Amazon.com.
