Cape Town-based designer and entrepreneur David Green has a background in engineering and has worked with internationals based in Japan, Italy and France. Today, he applies his keen eye for detail together with a passion for the environment to create his latest innovation – the David Green Timepiece Collection. Each David Green Timepiece is crafted by hand and uses processes and materials that are required to meet his stringent prerequisite criteria. Continuing the philosophy of ‘Individuality in harmony with nature’, David Green has integrated a real leaf for the face design, meaning that no two are the same and each piece, unique. Water-resistant with an atmospheric depth of five meters, the case is made of iron-plated stainless steel, ensuring that it is not just attractive but also durable. The dial plate is crafted from brass with mineral glass for the face and the genuine leather strap has been hand-stitched with green cotton – a striking yet stylish detail which will not go unnoticed by the discerning individual. It is this meticulous attention to detail that delivers comfort, elegance and timeless style for which David Green is renowned. “For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it” – Jacques-Yves Cousteau Purchase here now.
