With the help of his foundation SolarPlanet, Raphaël Domjan is involved in various humanitarian projects to promote the use of renewable energies. For the Solar Arctic Passage project, he will complete the first solar-powered polar sailing expedition, travelling some 3,000 km through the ice of the Northwest Passage in a kayak specially equipped with solar panels. This venture has never before been attempted.
Academia Blackstream Chronograph
The Blackstream inspiration is to be found in the sporting world and is designed for a young, dynamic and sporty masculine clientele. In that respect, a streamline spirit of modern and fashionable velocity was instilled into this creation.
In the previous Chronograph model of the Academia collection, time was displayed in a rather poetic way through the rotating movement of a fan-shaped hand over the seconds dial. Today, in the new Academia Blackstream Chronograph, the sequential seconds were replaced by classical seconds on a counter at 9 o’clock. A second counter, visually interconnected to the first one and positioned at 3 o’clock, plunges us once and for all into a sports car universe, as we now face the eye-catching speedometer of a racing car.
