For example, when you buy 1 white watch, food supplements are supplied to 16 children in the Horn of Africa. Through the 1:Face Watch website and social media, stories of the change being created are constantly highlighted. You will literally be able to see the change you have created.

The watch has a thick silicone band that comes in six different colors, each representing its own cause. The mirrored face of the watch displays the time in bright white LEDs at the push of a button.
