blancpain-ocean-commitment-exhibitionLast Night, Macau’s most sophisticated retail destination, The Promenade Shops, and one of the world’s most prestigious Swiss watchmaking brands, Blancpain, officially unveiled the first-to-Macau Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition. Located at the Opal Lobby of Galaxy Macau™, the exhibition is an environmental initiative that has toured the world and is now docking in Macau for the very first time – only at The Promenade Shops, and only until 31 October.

Visitors to the Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition at The Promenade Shops are invited to explore the underwater universe and learn about the environmental initiatives headed by Blancpain, the iconic timepiece brand founded in 1735 that developed the first modern diving watch. In Galaxy Macau’s airy and spacious Opal Lobby, visitors will discover zones devoted to history, science, exploration and art, including a section of breathtaking images by some of the world’s finest underwater photographers.

With a full calendar of aspirational lifestyle events, including interactive showcases like the Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition, The Promenade Shops features more than 200 luxury, designer and high-street labels. Discerning shoppers can also find exclusive collections from fashion favorites at The Promenade Shops.


Alan Walker, Senior Vice President of Retail at Galaxy Macau, said, “Protecting the ocean is a vital mission for all of us. The Promenade Shops is proud to team up with Blancpain in order to raise awareness of the prestigious watchmaker’s efforts to preserve the world’s oceans. This first-to-Macau exhibition is an innovative fusion of style, art, history and environmental celebrations, and we are delighted to host it at The Promenade Shop’s elegant exhibition area, the Opal Lobby.”

The Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition at The Promenade Shops will also feature, for the first time in Macau, the limited-edition Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Flyback Chronograph Blancpain Ocean Commitment II timepiece. Only 250 of these timepieces were produced. Each one features an engraved Ocean Commitment winding rotor and was crafted in the meticulous tradition of a prestigious Swiss watchmaking brand that has won the hearts of connoisseurs and collectors since its founding in 1735. For each of these timepieces sold, €1000 will be donated in support of scientific expeditions. In October 2016 it will be available exclusively at the Blancpain Boutique at Galaxy Macau.


Discerning patrons of quality timepieces are invited to show their support for the environment and the oceans of the world by visiting the Blancpain Ocean Commitment Exhibition at The Promenade Shops, Galaxy Macau, from now until 31 October 2016.
