Openwater Heroes is CLERC’s new Ocean Conservancy Program dedicated to generating and expanding awareness of specific ocean conservancy initiatives throughout the world.
Every year, CLERC will promote and raise awareness for specific causes dedicated to preserving the beauty and health of our marine ecosystems. The individuals spearheading these causes will be selected as CLERC Openwater Heroes then recognized and rewarded for their efforts and leadership.
According to CLERC CEO Gérald Clerc:
“Our Hydroscaph watches were born from the oceans, and extreme underwater conditions at depth drive everything we do on the engineering side. The same can be said for the aesthetic side of our timepieces. So it’s only natural that CLERC should strive to give back to the oceans for inspiring us. We will do this by promoting significant ocean causes and the selfless heroes behind them who too often remain unknown and uncelebrated.”
Gerald, himself a certified scuba diver, believes the oceans are increasingly being threatened by industrialisation, consumption, and energy exploration. Yet the beauty of the wide oceans and the life they contain is a gift to all mankind and deserves protection and preservation.
CLERC’s Openwater Heroes promotional efforts will undoubtedly benefit from the brand’s newly-announced partnership with Sub Aviator Systems – making it the first Swiss luxury dive watch company ever to conceive and test its watches in partnership with a luxury submarine builder at their underwater testing facilities.
