HISTORY

François Aubry sails on the high seas with the watch «La Planète Bleue». French words for «Blue Planet» to pay tribute to our earth. Blue means a clean and healthy ocean, which is not really the current situation. However, we are optimistic and pleased to announce a partnership with Yvan Bourgnon and his organization The SeaCleaners. Part of the profits from La Planète Bleue’s sales will go directly to the organization to preserve the ocean from plastic pollution.

About forty years ago, long before learning the skills of jeweller-watchmaker, François Aubry dreamed of building sailboats in shipyards. The inspiration of the watches’ design was born from this time of his life.  During the conception, the footprint of Yvan Bourgnon as ambassador of the watch was obvious from the first sketches. Yvan is born in the watch metropole of La Chaux-de-Fonds, before starting to explore the ocean from the age of 8.

Yvan Bourgnon is undoubtedly one of the greatest marine adventurers of his generation. He regularly meets the challenges of the extreme as the Northwest Passage alone on a sports catamaran. He also holds a number of records and sports titles to his credit. Accompanied by his son Mathis, they have recently broken two world records, that of “La Manche” and the Mediterranean. He is

preparing to meet a new challenge on multihulls, sailing around the world against with only him against the wind alone. This challenge, considered as very dangerous, is reserved for the most experienced skippers on the planet.

During the world tour on a sport catamaran Yvan Bourgnon faces a new obstacle; the pollution in the ocean and plastic waste slows down his course.

After taking up the challenge, in 2015 he founded the association The SeaCleaners, which aims to protect the oceans. It was then that the project, the first ocean plastic collector boat was born. The project «Manta» will not only have been built, but it will be autonomous and able to clean the oceans and will equally raise awareness and sensitize people to development and recycling.
