A committed watch, a watch that rescues
The meaning of this watch, sober with its 41 millimeters diameter and its arrow hand, seemed to bring a breath of brightness and brilliance to my little underwater creature between animal and vegetable morphs. And for me a breath of oxygen, protected by a helium valve discreetly appearing on the side of the case middle at 9 o’clock. Fluid, agile, he or she waved his or her ramifications towards me, as if to thank me. Little by little, moving around, I finally gave it a feminine identity. But it was especially because its presence full of life and colors pushed me without mercy in a still alive memory, arousing strange resonances with a still open pain. A feminine pain, that of a sorrow, of a breathlessness, of a lack of air. One of these still burning pains able to transform existence’s salts into indescribable burns.
“The fact that there are human beings somewhere who care about my condition, it restores my hope,” she suddenly blew me out of my musings, pointing to her fellow creatures around. She was talking about Coral Guardian, this non-profit organization that captures those of her kind in order to carefully replant them in more peaceful areas in order to save them. She also mentioned this summer campaign full of hope and concreteness, launched by Luc Tissot, great watch captain and owner of the historical brand Milus founded in 1919: purchasing a Milus Archimèdes Orange Coral allows you, with a certificate, to give your name to a coral and to organize its survival by transplanting it.
