In November 2019 Kering partnered with The Explorers. Ulysse Nardin reinforces this collaboration and becomes the official timekeeper of this ever-lasting around-the-globe scientific and exploratory expedition. Ben Thouard, one of Ulysse Nardin’s “friends of the brand”, is a key partner of the expedition.

Ulysse Nardin is proud to announce its partnership with The Explorers, a French initiative with global ambitions. The Explorers brings a new approach to educating and raising awareness of our planet. This very first collaborative global media platform is present in 170 countries and is in the process of compiling an inventory of the Earth’s heritage in 17 languages. The goal is complex and dynamic: raising awareness of the planet’s wealth, beauty and fragility.

The Explorers’ Foundation, founded by Olivier Chiabodo and Jean-Pierre Morel, counts six specific preservation programs already supported by the initiative: lemurs in Madagascar, turtles in Polynesia, red macaws in Honduras, radiated tortoises in Madagascar, crocodiles in Jamaica and humpback whales in Polynesia. The team includes scientists, filmmakers, cameramen, reporters, photographers, artists, designers, pilots, technicians, editors, musicians, programmers and community managers. Member of Ulysse Nardin’s family, Ben Thouard is one of the contributors to The Explorers while carrying the flag for Ulysse Nardin.
