The documentary brings together of the legendary oceanographer and Rolex Testimonee, Sylvia Earle, and a team of pioneering marine scientists
For Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, the world was like a ‘living laboratory.’ This perspective enabled him to use it as a testing ground for his watches back in the 1930s. However, at the turn of the 21st century, exploration for pure discover has given way to exploration as a means to preserve the natural. Keeping this mind, Rolex launched the Perpetual Planet initiative in 2019 with a mission to “make the planet perpetual.”
Within a short period of time, Rolex has set up mportant partnerships with the National Geographic Society to collect climate data and Sylvia Earle’s Mission Blue initiative to protect the oceans through a network of marine protected ‘Hope Spots.‘
Today on the occasion of World Environment Day, we celebrate and explore the recently released special documentary by Rolex called Perpetual Planet: Heroes of the Ocean.

What Is It About?
The documentary brings together legendary oceanographer and Rolex Testimonee, Sylvia Earle, and a team of pioneering marine scientists. They tell the story of the work that is being undertaken across the planet to protect the ocean’s fragile and deteriorating ecosystems. Rolex has taken on this project under their Planet Perpetual initiative, signifying the brand’s commitment to foster exploration for the conservation of the environment. The hour-long documentary invites viewers to immerse themselves in a spectacular underwater world and discover the challenges faced by our oceans today. It also focuses on the solutions that can be taken to make a credible change.
Perpetual Planet: Heroes of the Ocean documents the work of six marine scientists, five of whom are Rolex Award Laureates; Angélique Pouponneau, who is a Mission Blue champion for the Seychelles; and Ghislain Bardout, co-founder and Director of the Under The Pole expeditions.
