Breitling Organises Beach Clean Up As It Unites with Ocean Conservancy on Limited Edition Watch

To launch the new chronograph, the watchmakers organised a beach cleanup in Bali alongside high profile surfers such as Kelly Slater, Sally Fitzgibbons, and Stephanie Gilmore.

 

Breitling has collaborated with Ocean Conservancy on a new project, and the watchmaker has launched 1,000 limited edition models to celebrate the union.

 

The Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition model – which will be engraved with the organisation’s logo on the caseback – is powered by a Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical movement, features an ultra-hard scratch- and shock-resistant unidirectional rotating bezel with a luminescent central dot at 12 o’clock. The last of which is a feature particularly handy for divers.  The dot alongside the watch design’s hour and minute hand are also distinctive thanks to a coating of Super-LumiNova which emits and eye-catching blue light.

 

And to celebrate the partnership between the two – which is built in part upon their shared commitment the health of the oceans and the cleanliness of the beaches – the two companies got together on May 10th 2019 to work together to clean the shores of Bali. In fact, 100 Breitling guests along with a handful of generous volunteers mustered the energy to collect hundreds of kilograms of rubbish and plastic from the coastlines.

The CEO of the 1884-founded watch company spoke about the union, and how important raising global awareness is. Georges Kern – who previously spoke to A&E about his mission for the company – said: “This cleanup initiative in Bali underscored the power of our partnership with Ocean Conservancy.
“With the launch of this first great watch, we want to add a meaningful and credible element to our partnership and its global projects. I would like to thank Ocean Conservancy, all the volunteers, and the members of the Breitling Surfers Squad for making this event such a resounding success.”

Meanwhile, Janis Searles Jones, the CEO of Ocean Conservancy, added: “We are all proud to be able to work with Breitling. The new Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition watch is stunning, and we are thrilled that this partnership contributes to our important work to keep plastic and trash out of our oceans.”
