Emerald rainforests, turquoise waters lapping on to secluded beaches, blissful snorkelling and scuba diving.

Watching over the Earth’s Blue Heart
Rolex’s Perpetual Planet initiative supports those using science to understand the world’s environmental challenges and who are finding ways to restore balance to our ecosystems, particularly the oceans, which are under siege from a host of pressures.
Rolex has joined forces with Sylvia Earle’s Mission Blue initiative to watch over and safeguard the Earth’s oceans. Since 2009, Mission Blue has been creating a network of Hope Spots around the planet, flourishing icons of marine life in the immensity of the Earth’s Blue Heart.
