The most famous person is the late OMEGA celebrity ambassador and friend, Sir Peter Blake. One of the motivations for the shooting of Planet Ocean Is a tribute to it.

Ocean crisis in global development
The ocean provides the main food source for nearly 3 billion people, and it also supplies anti-cancer drugs and cosmetic raw materials. At the same time, the marine ecosystem also plays a natural protective role. However, under the uncontrolled use of the natural environment by human beings, the marine environment is improving. Facing many crises, including the decline in the number of seabed organisms caused by overfishing; global warming has caused sea levels to rise, and by the end of the 21st century, sea levels are expected to rise by more than 1 meter, which will also cause the disappearance of many natural beauty and organisms; and According to the assessment of the United Nations Environment Program, 80% of marine debris comes from inland, and 60% to 90% of it is plastic. Some garbage covers the ocean with ocean currents. For example, a Pacific garbage island ‘Great’ is formed between California and Hawaii. ‘Pacific Garbage Patch’, covering an area of one third of Europe, is nicknamed the ‘plastic continent’, which is undoubtedly a huge threat to marine ecology!
The purpose of the ‘Planet Ocean’ movie is to make the public face up to the issue of marine conservation. OMEGA also adhered to environmental protection requirements during the June 20th event. The food and beverage at the event site were all taken from unharvested sea areas.
