Hublot becomes a partner of the Polar Pod expedition

Jean-Louis Etienne has created the Polar Pod expedition to study the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica. This approach is supported by the Hublot watch brand as part of its Hublot Xplorations program.


Polar Pod‘s mission is to collect data for the international scientific community with an environmentally friendly, zero-emission vessel.


Driven by westerly winds, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) brings together three oceans: the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic. Driven by the circumpolar current, like a satellite around Antarctica, the Polar Pod will allow the acquisition of data and long-term observations that will be transmitted to researchers, oceanographers, climatologists and biologists. In total, no less than 43 scientific institutions from 12 countries are involved in the project.
