The goal was to certify that the Tijger flagship sunk in 1650 lies there and to find some other possible shipwrecks of the other ships belonging to the Ternate fleet.
The results of the expedition have exceeded from far all expectations!
Relevant cultural material was discovered, additional tumuli were observed and a total of seven shipwrecks were found (4 shipwrecks were initially planned to be found).
All remnants are now at a conservation facility of the government in Makassar for further investigation.
The next expedition is planned in November 2017 and will focus mostly on a possible trail-excavation of the Tijger wreckage and on the seven new shipwrecks inspection.
Edox is supporting this project of saving maritime cultural heritage and is releasing the new Delfin Fleet 1650 Limited Edition. Limited to 300 pieces worldwide, this new timepiece is a true tribute to the vintage Delfin timepiece collection born in 1961 and perfectly makes the link with this thrilling adventure of the research of the five lost ships of the Ternate fleet in 1650.
