Ever since the launch of the Fifty Fathoms, the first modern diver's watch, Blancpain has been intimately connected to diving. In recognition of this heritage, we are committed to the exploration and preservation of the ocean. At Blancpain, we are convinced that support for environmental protection is directly dependent on keeping the public informed. Thus, we work to raise overall awareness by sponsoring significant scientific projects, oceanographic exploration, underwater photography, environmental forums, exhibitions, and high-profile publications. Since 2014, our efforts in this area have been concerted under the label Blancpain Ocean Commitment. At the same time, Blancpain presented a 250-piece limited edition timepiece, which at its launch was announced as the first in a series of limited editions. After the success of this first edition and the tangible results of our partnerships, Blancpain presents in 2016 the second series of limited edition timepieces, the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Flyback Chronograph Blancpain Ocean Commitment II. This new watch expresses our strong determination to pursue our commitment to the oceans despite the target being set very high. Indeed, over the past two years, Blancpain has co-financed ten major scientific expeditions, celebrated its contribution to doubling the surface of marine protected areas around the world (three million square kilometers have been added with Blancpain's contribution), and presented several award-winning documentaries, underwater exhibitions and publications.
