Breguet Races for Water
Breguet and the Race for Water Foundation announce their partnership at Baselworld 2018 with a special exhibition. Breguet is joining forces with Race for Water to support the Odyssey 2017-2021 and its crucial mission for the oceans. A special exhibition launching at Baselworld 2018 will travel to various destinations to further contribute in raising awareness for this mission.
Advance scientific research on marine ecological balance has been carried out by the Race for Water Foundation, which now teams up with Breguet to raise awareness of ocean preservation and plastic pollution. A pioneering vessel embarks on a journey with the goal of promoting innovative solutions capable of transforming plastic waste into energy resources, and accelerating clean energy transition. The Race for Water Odyssey will make around 35 stopovers all around the world and provide an opportunity for scientists and decision-makers to gather and share their learnings on the need to preserve water, humanity’s most precious resource. Breguet is committed to supporting this new Odyssey through its completion in 2021.
Breguet has made an indelible mark in history by equipping sea going vessels with accurate chronometers that were set in the heart of the vessels and served to calculate longitude at sea. Breguet demonstrates its exceptional mastery of time measurement through its contemporary Marine collection. In celebration of the partnership with Race for Water, Breguet creates a special edition of its Marine 5517 timepiece. It is set in a light titanium case with a custom blue dial that features the Race for Water vessel in a clous de Paris motif. The Breguet Marine Special Edition will embark on an oceanic tour traveling in its natural environment on the wrists of Race for Water explorers and accompanying them in their mission.
