Nicolas Dubreuil. There is no arctic adventurer, who is unfamiliar with the name Dubreuil. While maintaining the life of an academic, Dubreuil was a pioneer in exploring the Arctic.
He moved to Greenland from Paris and mastered the art of hunting, making kayaks, and fishing harpoons, becoming one of the best explorers of the Arctic.
After sharing and introducing the Inuit culture to the world, he led the first expedition across Greenland’s Great Ice Cap with a group of deaf children and students with learning disabilities.
He has survived twice after falling into the freezing Arctic Ocean and was saved by Greenlanders, a story many would not live to tell.

Olivier Marchal Not everyone can do the job of a police investigator, but they can play one in a movie. Oliver Marchal joined the French Police Force in 1980, later becoming an investigator in the Intelligence Unit at the Anti Terrorist Squad, while taking acting classes at night. After some encouragement from a friend, he gained his first role as an investigator in Don’t Wake a Sleeping Cop (1988).
This kick started his acting career and soon he began writing scripts and scenarios for his own movies, incorporating his vast knowledge of the criminal world. Nominated for three Cesar Awards for his famed film « 36 Quai des Orfèvres », he soon fell into a cocaine addiction, as he descended deeper into the world of Show Business.
Olivier Marchal was able to overcome his addiction through his fantastic Resilience and continued his career.
Here are his words:
""in the midst of winter, I have found out, that after all, there was an invincible summer inside me" The beauty of Albert Camus' words ring in my head at times when I suffer from what my life had sometimes been..." Olivier Marchal
""au millieu de l'hiver, j'apprenais qu'il y avait enfin en moi un été invincible" La beauté des mots d'Albert Camus sonnent dans ma tête les jours où je souffre de ce que ma vie a parfois été..." Olivier Marchal
Loving our watch and its message, Olivier insisted on having our watch as the main evidence in his internationally acclaimed film « Rogue City » on Netflix.
He has created many more critically acclaimed films, the last being the action film «Overdose», soon to be seen on Amazon Prime streaming platform.
