Laurent Ballesta and his team succesfully achieved their mission in South Africa. After 40 days of deep water diving to meet with legendary bottom-dwelling sea creature, the coelacanth, they are now back to analyse the scientific data they collected.
We congratulate the whole "Projet Gombessa" team for their outstanding work and commitment, and we look forward to discover the complete TV program on Arte Channel later on this year.
Another great news is to hear from Laurent Ballesta himself that the Blancpain X Fathoms which he was wearing throughout the expedition, gave him entire satisfaction during these very challenging dives.
The watch was directly sent to our laboratory to undergo a complete analysis. What better experimentation could we get for the most high-performance mechanical diving watch ever produced.
