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

      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.
