Only Watch 2017 @OnlyWatch2017

Please allow me to draw your attention to Only Watch 2017

Since 2005 a one of a kind project called “Only Watch” underlines how watch-brands from luxury groups or independent craftsmen have achieved to unite in the pursuit of a common goal:

Financing research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

In six editions Only Watch has raised more than 25 million Euros (!) for Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy) helping make significant advances in research over a decade.

These are the watch-brands supporting Only Watch 2017:

Blancpain X Fathoms - live taken pictures

The Blancpain X Fathoms – the most astonishing and sophisticated diving watch ever built.

Did you watch the spectacular Blancpain video? I personally already watched it twice, since what you see is so amazing and unique. I am sure some of you did see the Blancpain diving watch on the wrist of the divers.

If you asked yourself which model it was, here comes the answer: It was the The Blancpain X Fathoms. So in brief this is all you need to know about the the most astonishing and sophisticated diving watch ever built …

Gombessa IV –Genesis

World Oceans Day – Together with Blancpain I invite you to watch a spectacular 26-minute film

Today is the Word Ocean Day. 

Lend me 26 minutes of your precious time and please watch this film. Unbelievable what you are going to see…

It is an unique annual gathering: Approximately 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 of 250.000 Euro linked to the first limited edition Blancpain Ocean Commitment watch.
