Select media, VIP guests, business partners, and watch collectors in Singapore joined Blancpain to celebrate the 65th (Blue Sapphire) Anniversary of its first modern diving watch, the Fifty Fathoms, in Singapore. Since the creation of this pioneering timepiece in 1953, Blancpain has been consistently identified with the sea through its commitment to the exploration and preservation of the oceans.

In continuation of its 65-year heritage, Blancpain’s affinity to the underwater world has progressively become a strong determination to support important activities and initiatives dedicated to the oceans. For the past several years, the Blancpain Ocean Commitment has been manifested through its support for oceanographic projects and partnerships with leading organisations, such as the Pristine Seas expeditions, Laurent Ballesta’s Gombessa project, the World Ocean Initiative organized by The Economist’s, and the World Oceans Day.
