Great News! #Canada and Arctic Inuits have agreed to create the Tallurutiup Imanga nature reserve at #LancasterSound in Nunavut. Covering 109,000 sq. km, the newly established MPA is the largest in the #Arctic. Blancpain has contributed to raising awareness of the dramatic changes in this region, and of the need to protect it through the funding of two scientific expeditions led by Dr. @EnricSala in 2015. Discover the breathtaking Arctic landscape via link in bio.

A unique annual gathering: 18'000 groupers, 700 grey reef sharks, and a group of audacious research divers. Is this a chaotic feeding frenzy or an organized hunting pack? The Gombessa IV Genesis by Laurent Ballesta and his team builds on observations made during the Gombessa II (2014) study of the grouper reproductive phenomenon, and prepares the Gombessa IV expedition. This project has been realized in French Polynesia in June 2016 with an additional donation linked to the first limited edition Blancpain Ocean Commitment watch.

Blancpain’s CEO in the early 1950’, himself a passionate diver, had a keen appreciation from his own experience of what divers needed for their watch:  water resistance, legibility, a locking rotation bezel that could be used to time the dive, anti-magnetic protection, automatic winding. He brought all of these together when he created  the first Fifty Fathoms which has defined diving watches ever since.  He had one other inspiration, a backup safety feature in the form small disk placed on the dial to detect the presence of humidity inside the watch.
