It is just fitting that for having initiated the world’s first dive watch, Replica Watch Blancpain stays committed to maintaining the kingdom which its watches were initially purpose-built to explore: the seas. New for 2020, Blancpain is now taking a page from its customary Ocean Commitment playbook and turning the script using a new green-dialed dip watch benefitting a new conservation organization: a time-only 43mm ceramic Bathyscaphe, made to benefit from Mokarran Protection Society — a hammerhead shark defense nonprofit based in French Polynesia.

Contrary to BLANCPAIN JOUR NUIT REPLICA WATCH FOR LADIES three preceding Ocean Commitment watches that have been blue-dialed, or blue-cased affairs (or any combo of both ), this brand new Mokarran seizes upon the green-dialed fad in 2020, but does so with aplomb, leveraging Blancpain’s conventional stainless steel Bathyscaphe using its brushed’Meteor’ grey dial and punching into a glowing, tropical colour of green. Think palm fronds and hot sunshine filtering through dense mangroves, instead of this staid’Kermit’ or British Racing Green tones which we have seen dominating the media cycle this summer. The dial is complemented with a matte green porcelain bezel with mirrored Liquid Metal demarcations, and fitted using Blancpain’s black NATO strap which matches the situation’s black ceramic exterior.
