Manta rays are one of the many sea creatures whose survival is being threatened by overfishing. The Manta Trust – a UK registered charity – is committed to protecting and ensuring the survival of these mysterious and charismatic animals in more than 20 different countries. Carl F. Bucherer has supported this charity for many years in order to help with the conservation of manta rays. In the summer of 2017, the Swiss watch manufacturer is launching a limited-edition timepiece dedicated to the charity for the first time. Part of the sales proceeds of these 188 watches will go to help finance an entirely new kind of research expedition.
