Experience our mission in Croatia in a video by Breitling

05 November 2019

The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Breitling partnered with us to support our diving project in Croatia in August 2019 and produced a stunning video showcasing our journey from waste to wear. The brand’s interest in Healthy Seas was motivated by the launch of its second edition Superocean watch, which features a NATO strap made of ECONYL® yarn, in collaboration with Outerknown and Kelly Slater. Along with this new Superocean model, Breitling launched an entire ECONYL® yarn collection of 18 strap versions in different colors and sizes.

We were very excited to have the Breitling team with us at Kvarner Bay. The company’s outstanding dive watches are legendary among the diving community! Despite the long, exhausting hours that filming required, it was an absolute pleasure to work with such a highly professional and skilled crew. We think that the end-result speaks for itself!

The 18 new ecologically responsible straps, which will dress up any Breitling watch, are crafted from ECONYL® yarn, a material created from regenerated nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets that Healthy Seas recovers from the seas through projects with Ghost Fishing divers.

In October, our team was invited to the Breitling Summit in Zurich where we were delighted to meet Georges Kern, CEO, and hear about the company’s commitment to sustainability. We were warmly welcomed by Georges, who said,

“We are excited about our partnership with Healthy Seas and to be able to turn the discarded fishing nets they recover from the oceans into something beautiful, sustainable and useful. We look forward to doing even more with them in the future.”
