Making a difference

The Khaki Conservation timepieces have GMT functionality, with the second time zone selection covering a range of focus locations for Conservation International projects, from Colombia to Indonesia. Harrison Ford was actively involved in the design of the watche and his signature of stylish adventure is clearly evident. The classical black dial bears bold numbers with inner and outer counter rings adding a touch of edgy dynamism. And just as the success of every heroic stunt depends on meticulous attention to detail, the watch comes with crafted finishing touches such as fine cut-out hands and date windows, or studded and stitched leather strap.

Every second counts

The preservation of planet earth is extremely time-critical. The highprecision Swiss Automatic GMT movement in the Khaki Conservation watch, visible through the see-through case back, mirrors this fact. Decorating this ’window’ is the engraved signature of Harrison Ford together with the Conservation International logo. Special packaging in corrugated cardboard also supports the message of preserving resources by utilizing recycled materials. Harrison Ford vividly sums up the urgency of environmental protection in his own words - “Our health relies entirely on the vitality of our fellow species on Earth. When we protect the places where the processes of life can flourish, we strengthen not only the future of medicine, agriculture and industry, but also the essential condition for peace and prosperity.”
