๐Ÿ”ฅ BREAKING NEWS: Shiseido acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand, Drunk Elephant for $845 Million! ๐Ÿ˜
Whatโ€™s the current situation with Drunk Elephantโ€™s cruelty-free status?๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป
Shiseido is NOT a cruelty-free corporation, they DO test on animals when required by law and the brand, as well as, some of their subsidiary brands (like NARS) are sold in mainland China and are required by law to test on animals.
Shiseido does own two cruelty-free brands, bareMinerals and BUXOM.
So.. will Drunk Elephant remain Cruelty-Free?
YES! According to Drunk Elephant, they'll remain cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified!!! โœจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸปโœจSwipe ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป to read their response when asked about their cruelty-free standing after the announcement.
TL;DR - Shiseido (a non-cruelty-free corporation) acquires Drunk Elephant but theyโ€™ll remain committed to being cruelty-free. Drunk Elephant is not sold in-stores in China and has no plans to.

List of Vegan Watch Brands – Timeless Timepieces Without the Cruelty

This post may contain affiliate links.

A sleek and sophisticated timepiece completes every outfit but I had never considered the materials used to make my everyday accessory. Most watch straps are made using leather derived from animal skin, so in order to find a cruelty-free watch, I had to look for vegan leather watches made with synthetic and/or considered materials.

Thus, began my search for vegan watch options! As a result, I found 8 vegan-friendly watchmakers that have created some of the most stylish yet functional timepieces using a variety of vegan materials!

Here is a round-up of the very best, sleek vegan watches for men and women, all made without harming any animals!

    I bought a watch from Aubry Watches. Their website states that they would reply within 24 hours. However, I’ve emailed them at the start of January to enquire about the possibility of an exchange. It’s now the end of February and they don’t reply. I just wanted to know whether if it’s possible or not.

      Hey Jen,
      I’ve removed Aubry Watches from this list and anywhere else on my website. Sadly, I would no longer recommend buying from this brand. You’re not the only one who has complained about their lack of customer service. I’ll reach out to them to ask them to get back to you and hopefully your issue will be resolved. So sorry you have to deal with this! -Vicky

    It clearly says they use calf leather! How is this list vegan???

      If you read my article, it says “Although NOT ALL of Instrmnt minimalist watches are vegan, their beautiful K-series watches feature an Italian vegan rubber strap.” If you wish to only support and buy from 100% vegan brands, then I have listed 6 other completely vegan watch companies in this list.

  • Danielle

    A Votch rep said their straps have a backing which is glued on. Glue = not vegan! I checked with PETA on that so Iโ€™m not sure how they got Peta vegan certified.

    • Vicky Ly
      September 8, 2018

      Hi Danielle,
      Some glue is considered vegan but I’ll reach out to Votch to inquire if they can confirm if the glue they use doesn’t contain any animal-derived components. I also don’t think PETA verifies if the glue used in products are vegan before they certify brands as being “vegan”, their certification process is a simple online questionnaire where companies just fill it out and then get approved.

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll look into this and report back if I hear anything =)

      I recently got my hands on the CPTN vegan watch and I have a full review of one of their watches which you can read here: https://ethicalelephant.com/cptn-watches/

      I wish I could try some more! but my bank account wouldn’t be happy about that! =( Keep checking back to see if I get my hands on any more to try, as I will always give my honest review!

      • Briana
        December 7, 2017

        Hi there! Do you happen to know what CPTN’s vegan leather is made of? A lot of vegan leather is made of various polyurethanes. I am looking for something both eco- and wallet-conscious. Some vegan leathers are cork or kelp-based though. Is this one of them?

        • Vicky Ly
          December 7, 2017

          Hey Briana,
          Iโ€™m not sure what the exact materials the CPTN vegan watch straps are made out of but itโ€™s some sort of polyurethane.

          For more eco-friendly watch straps..

          VOTCH (USD$228) โ€“ has a pineapple leather vegan strap but those watches start at $228, they also claim that their VEGAN LEATHER โ€œstrap materials are free from PVC, heavy metals, flame retardants and have no added antimicrobial chemicals. They are produced with low VOC emissions and also incorporate recycled and renewable content.โ€

          TIVC (USD$130) โ€“ they have straps made out of pineapple leather as well and also a collection of ECO-SUEDE bands that they claim โ€œitโ€™s production process is similar to that used for paper recycling, in which no harmful chemical substances are used. The recycled polyester contained in the eco suede material derives from polyester fibres (T-shirts, fibres, etc.) and PET (bottles, plastic, etc.)โ€

          and TIVC also claims their VEGAN LEATHER watch straps are โ€œmade up of different microfibre bundles as well as raw and recycled materials. They are eco friendly towards the environment as well as the people who create the leather. There are also no nasty chemicals involved in the process of manufacturing our bandโ€
