300 miles across
the plastic continent
In partnership with the long distance swimmer Benoit Lecomte, we decided to create an Aquascaphe especially for the expedition: "The Vortex Swim". A 300 nautical miles swim, that is to say 550 km across the "plastic continent" in order to raise awareness about the pollution of the oceans by micro-plastics.
To further personalize the watch, the expedition’s logo is applied to the dial in place of the traditional “Aquascaphe – 200 m”. The caseback was engraved differently as well, sporting the words "For the planet I swam the Pacific".
Only one piece was made available to the general public, which was auctioned for the expedition at 6000€ in November 2019.
