Candino sponsors solar-powered boat adventure

May 2009

The watch brand Candino Swiss Watch has agreed to take part in an extraordinary technological and human challenge: the first round-the-world trip powered by solar energy.

PlanetSolar, the largest solar-powered boat ever constructed, will start its visionary journey in 2010.


Candino, a member of the Festina Group, will be one of the main partners for this project and the official timekeeper for the adventure. Swiss Made quality, a project on an international scale and technological innovation are the main features of this collaboration.
