Living in a windy city may be bad for your hair but it could be good for your watch; that is, if you are wearing the Eole watch from designer Julien Moise. The Eole watch is wind-powered and tells time only when its turbine is spinning.
No wind means no time, but it also means no electronic waste afterwards in the form of used watch batteries. Despite their small size, watch batteries are still significant landfill polluters as they are usually thrown away instead of recycled. I for one would wear the Eole watch but I am a little wary about making it my primary time-teller as I can't always rely on the wind to blow every time I want to tell the time.
