OCEANS 11: As part of the celebration of World Oceans Day, Susan Rockefeller will premiere her most recent documentary, “Mission of Mermaids,” Tuesday at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The event is sponsored by Susan and David Rockefeller, along with Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux. To commemorate the event, the upscale brand will launch a limited-edition timepiece called the Seahawk 1000 “Big Blue.” Retailing for $10,900, the watch includes a steel case and blue rubber strap with a matching dial that features a world map.

“Time is truly the only limited and precious resource that we have in this world,” Susan Rockefeller said. “The message that Girard-Perregaux, David and I are sharing is that by giving our oceans time to rest and replenish with simple acts of thoughtfulness, they can continue to provide a bounty of necessities for human life.”

In addition to her 15-minute film, Rockefeller will fete the launch of her ocean-inspired jewelry collection, which is available at susanrockefeller.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Oceana, an organization that focuses on ocean conservation and protecting marine ecosystems and endangered species.
