Blancpain Ocean Commitment
From the birth of our legendary Fifty Fathoms which made its mark as the world’s first modern diving watch, defining the genre ever since, we have established intimate connections with the world’s oceans and the communities dedicated to their preservation. Working closely with passionate divers, leading scientists, underwater explorers, environmentalists, and photographers, our mission has grown far beyond the creation of the world’s finest diving timepieces. We have come to understand and support vital initiatives aimed at ocean preservation and the building of public understanding of the cause. Our ocean preservation efforts are summarized with what we term the Blancpain Ocean Commitment to which we have devoted substantial resources. We hope as you discover the many initiatives we have undertaken, you too will be inspired to lend your voice in support.
In continuation of the Fifty Fathoms' role in the opening up of the underwater world, Blancpain has been supporting those who best raise awareness of ocean issues and especially those who convey a positive message insisting on the inspiring beauty of what's intact.
