OMEGA presents Planet Ocean Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain


Since 2011, OMEGA has worked alongside the GoodPlanet Foundation raising public awareness of our oceans and sharing its dedication to sustainability. On June 19 2013, OMEGA presented Planet Ocean, The Exhibition, featuring photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Bryan Skerry that reveal the current situation on the health of the oceans.

The luxury brand hosted an exhibition and cocktail party with Jean-Pascal Perret, OMEGA Vice President of Communications and PR; Yann Arthus-Bertrand, director and founder GoodPlanet; Gonzalo de Cevallos, General Manager Swatch Group Spain and Daniel Casas, OMEGA’s Brand Manager in Spain. The event took place at the Atarazanas of the Maritime Museum in Barcelona.


OMEGA, which invented the first diving watch in 1932, has a long legacy of creating timepieces that help explore, enjoy and now conserve the oceans. With that history in mind, OMEGA funded the Planet Ocean film and commissioned acclaimed photographer, filmmaker and environmentalist Arthus-Bertrand and his non-profit organization, GoodPlanet Foundation, to create an exhibition of photographs taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Bryan Skerry.


The guests and journalists who attended the exhibition were impressed by the quality and the photographs and expressed admiration for the powerful message they conveyed.
