Last June 8, marked the World Oceans Day. According to the United Nations, this day’s purpose is to “inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans.“
To mark this year’s celebration, the partnership between Marine Conservations Philippines or MCP, a Non-Government Organization based in Central Visayas, Philippines and Aquinus Watches, produced a hundred watches as a limited edition for its MCP2019 collection.

Aquinus Supports Marine Conservation
The people behind Aquinus describe themselves as “divers, explorers, and watchmakers“. The oceans and its conservation and protection for the future is central to their mission. As they put it, it is “to be eco-responsibly committed to the world’s oceans.”
With only 100 numbered watches available, to commemorate World Ocean’s Day, the partnership with Marine Conservation Philippines is also seen as a natural synergy.
Through its website, the Aquinus MCP2019 limited edition dive watch can be purchased at USD $245.
Twenty percent (20%) of this is will go directly to benefit the Marine Conservation Philippines and support their mission of empowering and engaging local and national capacity to conserving marine ecosystems.
