On November 11, 2016, Blancpain grandly released the Fifty Fathom Series Deep Submersible Flyback Chronograph ‘Mind the Ocean’ 2016 New Limited Edition at the Shanghai Xintiandi Flagship Store and held the ‘Mind ‘Marine Unscrupulous Without Borders’ Global Marine Public Welfare Achievement Exhibition.
Mr. Alain Delamuraz, Global Vice President of Blancpain, Mr. Liao Yu, Vice President of Blancpain China, Mr. Liang Wendao, Blancpain Cultural Ambassador, Mr. Wu Xiubo, Brand Friend, Mr. Laurent Ballesta Attend the event together. The stars are connected by the ocean because of their hearts, and they collectively have a title of ‘噚 者’.
Liang Wendao: What is a cripple
Blancpain believes that the ocean is the common wealth of mankind. While devoting himself to the protection of the ocean, he must also call for more people to join in. This group of like-minded people is the ‘slayers’. The end of the sea, the unbelievers are boundless, and those who care about the ocean because of Blancpain will fulfill their lofty commitments to the ocean with practical actions in various fields and jointly guard the vast blue.
Press conference of the new limited edition watch, hosted by Mr. Liang Wendao, Blancpain’s brand cultural ambassador. His wit, humor, and eloquence instantly lit the atmosphere of the event, and explained to everyone ‘what is a puppet’, that is, a person who loves the fifty and loves the ocean because of Blancpain.
Wu Xiubo: The Example of Martyrs
Mr. Wu Xiubo, a close friend of the Blancpain brand, is a role model for many ‘smart people.’ In 2014, he was invited to take part in Blancpain’s ‘Focus on the Ocean’ South France departure event, purchase the first limited edition watch, join the ‘Focus on the Marine Community’, and actively participate in marine public welfare. And this year, Mr. Wu Xiubo continued to cheer on Blancpain’s ‘Teaching the Ocean’ China tour, calling on the Chinese people to pay attention to and support marine public welfare.
As a role model, as # 心 系 海洋 活动 派 #, Mr. Wu Xiubo took the initiative and purchased the first “Mind Ocean” 2016 Limited Edition 001 watch on the spot. Wu Xiubo admits that he bought this blue watch because the sky is blue, and the earth is blue from space. This is the color of life. This is also a small contribution he made to the ocean. , I hope that through this action, we can call on more people to cherish the marine environment resources, let those living creatures live in the environment where they should live, and also for marine science like Lauren Ballesta. The family pays deep respect.
Lauren Ballesta: Leader of the Martyr
Leading figure of “Heart in the Ocean”, marine biologist, diving photographer and explorer who just finished the Antarctic expedition project, Lauren Ballesta, as a guest and media reporter on the scene, shared his support for the three times of Blancpain The mysterious and beautiful underwater world in the coelacanth scientific research project displayed, countless grotesque, extremely rare underwater creatures, and his adventures on the sea floor affected the guests’ breathing and heartbeat.
The Lauren team has achieved remarkable results:
For the first time, the mysterious veil of the coelacanth fish, the greatest zoological discovery of the twentieth century;
For the second time, the record of the largest group of grey reef sharks (about 700) that humans have observed so far, and the grouping of groupers at night;
The third time, dived 120 meters to the bottom of the ice floes in Antarctica, revealed the deep-sea organisms and living environment at the bottom of the ice floes in the Antarctica, and helped to count the emerging deep-sea biota affected by global warming, and shared all image data to the research For reference.
For the fourth time, they are about to set off to explore the night hunting of sharks accidentally discovered during the second Coelacanth operation. If this strategy is proved, it will directly challenge humans’ perception of existing organisms.
On his second expedition, he was not afraid of the huge number of grey reef sharks and was excited to take underwater photography. When the guests present exclaimed, he smiled and explained that in the eyes of the grey reef sharks, humans are huge, and they think that humans are also a predator, so they will not attack humans. However, the herd of grey reef sharks would still bump into his body, and when he got ashore, he found that his body was already full of bruises.
Lauren is a science man, and no one can imagine that he is the first person in the world to reach a 24-hour deep dive. But Lauren himself said frankly: he didn’t do this for record breaking, he just wanted to discover more about marine species and the environment underwater at such depth and allowable time, and make his own research for human beings to study the ocean. Some contributions. This feeling touched every guest on the scene. The applause rang throughout the audience.
‘Heart is the ocean’, Blancpain’s life-long charity
Mr. Alain Delamuraz, Blancpain’s global vice president, said: In marine public welfare, Blancpain has always focused on long-term projects, not short-term, temporary behavior; the ocean and the earth are the common wealth of mankind, and environmental issues are also global issues. Therefore, the public welfare cause of “Hearts Concerning the Ocean” must focus on the world and unfold in all major countries and regions. Marine protection not only requires the introduction of professionals and institutions to solve scientific research challenges, but the most fundamental thing is to raise public awareness. Let the public go from knowing the ocean, to respecting and loving, to protecting and practicing, to enjoying the beauty of the ocean; even in the downturn of the global economy, investment in public welfare must be sustained.
Deciphering the unique rarity of Blancpain
Mr. Liao Yu, Vice President of Blancpain China, was present to explain why it was so difficult to obtain the delicate Blancpain. In order to achieve such a uniform Blancpain, watchmakers must use two different ceramic processes:
The first technology, stamping ceramic powder, completes shaping and coloring, and is mainly used for the manufacture of watch cases, bezels and case backs.
In the second technique, ceramic particles are embedded in the mold through an injection die process, and the crown and timing buttons are completed. The blue color is completely consistent with the case, back and bezel by firing. And can make the blue consistent and stable. What’s even more commendable is that Blancpain is a solid ceramic from the inside out, rather than simply using a coating to achieve the whole body blue of the watch, which is the industry’s first.
Amazing results of ‘Mind in the Ocean’
Since the launch of Blancpain’s “Mind-Related Ocean” business in 2014, Blancpain has supported ten expeditionary exploration projects, which has doubled the total area of global marine protected areas and increased 3 million square kilometers (nearly one-third of China). Land area) and presents many colorful award-winning documentaries, underwater exhibitions and publications to the world.
The theme exhibition “Hearts Concerning the Ocean” presents many marine public welfare projects promoted by Blancpain worldwide, including the Primitive Ocean Expedition, the Coelacanth Expedition Research Project, the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco and the World Ocean Summit. Achievements and latest developments. Since 2014, Blancpain has continued to hold “The Heart of the Ocean” tour theme exhibitions in major cities in China, further expanding the influence of the “Heart of the Ocean” and promoting public awareness of protecting the ocean.
