The reason for focusing on the fishing nets is because there is in excess of 22,000 tons of plastic waste left in the ocean every day, becoming a major cause of maritime pollution.

The product was designed to symbolize France's message to the world that humanity needs to reconsider its impact on the planet, especially in relation to safeguarding the oceans.

As a gesture, the watches were offered by France to other worldwide presidents and guests during the G7 meeting in Biarritz (which took place between 24th and 26th August 2019).
