Nespresso Capsules Upcycled to Watches

While you may be good about recycling, are you up cycling things around your house to new uses? I've been using the Outpresso to recycle my Nespresso Capsules, but I never thought I would see a watch face made from a crushed Nespresso capsule. The flattened capsule forms a uniquely designed face of a beautiful wrist watch. Each one is slightly different given the crushing behavior of the used capsules.

The watchmaker, Blacier, uses a hand winding mechanism, and proudly displays the non-battery, green state of their watch's mechanism via the clear glass back plate. The hand winding should last for approximately 42 hours according to their website, so daily winding is recommended.

Cost of the Blancier watches start at 495 Euros…. at Blancier Watches - Grand Cru Watch

Another way Nespresso Capsules are being used is that they are being recycled into Pixie side panels. Seems like a nice closed loop system…..

I agree, very original, but I hope they didn't build for huge demand. - on top of that, at 495 Euros, I'll end up recycling more than they end up selling, I would expect.

I give them points for originality, but those are not what I'd call lookers!
