This past spring, an expedition known as Big Migrations 2, led by two Quebecois marine biologists, set out from the southern tip of Mexico, motoring by boat, to visit Clipperton. The team had the ambitious agenda of carrying out a number of scientific studies, both on land, and in the waters surrounding the island. The expedition had the primary goal of documenting the migration patterns of pelagic species in order to support the establishment of a protected marine area to protect these species from overfishing. My colleague (and fellow HODINKEE contributor) James Stacey was lucky enough to tag along for the 16-day expedition at the invitation of Oris Watch Company. During their time there, they cataloged the trash on the island, removed long-line filament from the surrounding reefs, tagged sharks, and dodged aggressive moray eels. Oris was a primary sponsor of the expedition, and this week, at a 2018 preview event in Beaver Creek, Colorado, the brand introduced a limited edition watch celebrating Clipperton Island and commemorating the expedition.
