BATHYSCAPHE MOKARRAN LIMITED EDITION
GREEN FOR THE BIG BLUE
The hammerhead shark is an endangered species that is being studied in order to protect it better. The watchmakers at Brassus have designed a limited edition to help save them.
Ocean diversity is a key concern for Blancpain. The Manufacture’s Ocean Commitment (BOC) campaigns participate in the study of the oceans. The 50-piece Bathyscaphe Mokarran Limited Edition is dedicated to observing and helping to protect the great hammerhead shark. Each customer who acquires a timepiece in this series joins forces with Blancpain to support the Mokarran Protection Society with 1,000 US dollars. A total of 50,000 dollars will thus be added to the brand’s regular contributions to raise awareness about, respect and protect the ocean world.
This diver’s watch has a 43.60-mm satin-brushed black ceramic case and is water-resistant to 30 bars. The case provides ideal protection for the caliber 1318 that powers the hour and minute hands rotating on the ultra-bright green dial. Like all the watches in the collection, this model has a unidirectional bezel to ensure safe diving. It is machined in the same material as the case and has Liquidmetal® hour markers. The self-winding movement has a balance wheel equipped with a silicon hairspring and three barrels. They provide a 5-day-long power reserve. The solid gold rotor, which can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback, is engraved with a great hammerhead shark, Sphyrna mokarran, with NAC coating.
The Bathyscaphe Mokarran Limited Edition has a NATO strap so it can be worn comfortably directly on the wrist or when wearing a neoprene wetsuit.
