Blancpain hosts ocean commitment pop-up exhibition in Hong Kong

To celebrate the 65th anniversary of the launch of Fifty Fathoms, the world’s first modern diving watch, Blancpain is hosting a watch pop-up exhibition at Pacific House, Central, from 28 June to 6 July 2018.


The exhibition not only celebrates Blancpain’s rich heritage, but also showcases its commitment to preserve the underwater world. On display is a choicest selection of Fifty Fathoms watches – vintages ones from 1953 to more recent pieces from 2018 – along with a preview of the new limited-edition BOC III.

The exhibition also features photographs captured by underwater photographers, among them, Laurent Ballesta, marine scientist and winner of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 (Earth’s Environments category).


To commemorate the occasion, Blancpain hosted an exclusive cocktail reception attended by most of Hong Kong’s elite, including celebrities like Sing Lam, Adrian Wong, Bruce Tong, Derek Wong and Derek Lam, and athletes like Kent Cheung, Tsui Chi Ho and Chris Cheng.
