Mission 31 endeavor, to be conducted this fall on Aquarius, the only
undersea marine habitat and lab in the world located in the Florida

will also set a record for the longest continuously used dive watch under water.
DOXA will commemorate the mission by manufacturing a special edition of
331 pieces of the famous orange face DOXA SUB dive watch, 31 of which
will spend 31 days under water with Fabien Cousteau’s mission team. A
few lucky individuals will be able to acquire these commemorative
watches when they become available for pre-order; sold exclusively by
Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 endeavor will be conducted on the Aquarius, which
is owned by
NOAA and managed by Florida International University.
Saturation training for Mission 31 starts mid-Sept. and Fabien Cousteau's team
will submerge on Sept. 30 for the first full day on Aquarius, Oct. 1.

name of science and discovery, breaking his grandfather’s Conshelf Two

anniversary of Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s original mission.
