Time for Peace Main Description Text
Every minute a person is shot somewhere in the world. Every minute. There are hundreds of millions of illegal firearms in the world making the violence possible. Together with IM, Swedish Development Cooperation, we want to change this. The collection of watches in Humanium Metal is made from destroyed weapons. For every watch sold you support the meltdown of more weapons and help finance the rehabilitation of victims of armed violence. By wearing a Humanium watch you join a global movement against armed violence.
The Process of Destruction Text
Illegal firearms are confiscated by local authorities in conflict torn societies, where our partner IM (Swedish Development Partner) is operational . The weapons are then being melted down by local foundries. This metal is then being bought by us and transformed into watches. Last but not least for each watch sold we give back 15% to IM and their work with victims of armed violence in the areas from which the weapons have been confiscated. So far, we have been able to give back approx. $150 000 to IM and their work with victims of armed violence and we have been part of the destruction of over 12 000 weapons. It is time for peace!
