CH Premier partnered with Swiss watchmaker Blancpain to bring the Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition to Westfield Valley Fair, Santa Clara. The exhibition has traveled all around the world: China, Hong Kong, Sydney, Tokyo, and Moscow. This is the second showing in North America following Las Vegas in January.
On May 5, 2016, CH Premier and Blancpain hosted an evening cocktail reception and speaking engagement with Blancpain US Brand President, David Gely and long time friend of the brand, Jeffrey Kingston, where the two discussed about the brand’s longstanding connection and commitment to persevering and protecting the world’s oceans. Among those in attendance was VIP clients and watch enthusiasts from the Bay Area.
For the duration of the exhibition period, CH Premier will be showcasing an extensive collection of the Fifty Fathom timepieces. The collection embodies Blancpain’s passion for the underwater world since 1953 by creating the first modern dive watch. Each Fifty Fathom model features the signature elements from the original diver’s watch and design choices based on the risks and necessities in the diving world. Latest editions added to the collection pay tribute to the pioneers of diving, whose passions and dedication has continued to inspire Blancpain to create timepieces with technological advancement and innovative materials for underwater exploration.
To highlight the Ocean Commitment, Blancpain offers the limited edition Ocean Commitment Bathyscaphe Chronograph Flyback, limited to 250 pieces worldwide. The timepiece features Blancpain’s in-house movement in gray ceramic case and blue dial. For every piece sold, Blancpain will make charitable contribution to the Ocean Commitment.
The Blanpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition is open to the public until May 31, 2016.
