If Instagram accounts with wall-to-wall pictures of the world’s most beautiful people in its most beautiful places make your spirit curdle, you may want to look away now.
But before that, consider this: beyond his perma-tan, six-pack and tales of a life spent travelling the world with his former Miss Universe girlfriend Pia Wurtzbach, Jeremy Jauncey might actually have something important to say. Jauncey, whose travel strategy and creative agency Beautiful Destinations has more than 30 million Instagram followers – and who is announced today as AAA Swiss Panerai replica watches global ambassador – wants us to travel more, but better.
Why? “I passionately believe travel is a force for good,” says the 36-year-old entrepreneur, offering a sentiment landlocked Brits won’t struggle to grasp, even if they can’t currently act on it. “When you get out into the world with an open heart and an open mind, you can have transformational experiences.”
If that sounds like the sort of standard influencer variety of fluff Instagram is full of, his argument grows weightier. He talks just as passionately of sustainable tourism, regenerative travel and the “circular tourism economy”.
The what now? “This is where you improve the whole ecosystem in the travel experience,” says the softly spoken but authoritative Scot (who has a Colombian mother and an English accent). “It’s about the local community you’re travelling to, the environment and your own experience.”
The personal experience and the value of tourism to local economies aren’t hard to compute. Anyone who’s ever haggled over a leather wallet in a Moroccan souk will understand.
But the notion of sustainable tourism still sticks in the throat. Surely, given the tonnes and tonnes of CO2 the tourism industry coughs into the atmosphere and the falling pollution levels during the pandemic, the most sustainable form of travel is to stay at home?
Before I can even ask the question, Jauncey is on it, admitting all this could sound a bit rich coming from a man whose recent IG posts have him in Greece, Abu Dhabi, the Maldives and Iceland. When we speak, he’s just arrived in Dubai.
“My own carbon footprint is larger than the average person’s,” he admits. “But I’m able to act on it. Today, all the different facets of life that have a carbon footprint can be measured. And once they’re measured, you can take quantifiable action to offset the impact you have.”
Rather than being some finger-in-the-air guesstimate, he points to a carbon footprint calculation tool available via the WWF and the climate and development organisation Gold Standard. He’s an ambassador for both and says he uses them to offset the environmental impact of his globetrotting. “You can’t ask people to stop travelling,” he says. “But you can encourage people to educate themselves better.”
On paper, so to speak, the handsome, chiselled Jauncey and his glamorous, but apparently environmentally responsible Instagram life become the picture perfect match for best Panerai fake watches for sale. Earlier this year, the brand introduced the Submersible eLAB-ID, top quality replica watches for men that it says is 98.6 per cent recycled by weight, setting an astonishing new benchmark for sustainable watchmaking. But it appears there’s more to it.
1:1 perfect replica Panerai watches boss Jean-Marc Pontroué makes no attempt to hide the fact that he believes Jauncey’s digital-first, mobile, environmentally conscious audience might just be worth talking to.
“We strongly believe Jeremy can help us get the message across to a younger audience,” he says. “It’s not enough to offer a vast assortment of sustainable products. You have to take concrete steps in this direction, too, taking part in projects and showing real actions are taken.”
The timing of the announcement is no coincidence. Today is World Oceans Day. As well as pushing the sustainability story, high quality CA fake Panerai watches also has inherent links to the sea: it began life as a supplier to the Italian Royal Navy.
In April, Panerai copy watches wholesale store announced a partnership with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of Unesco and is involved in its Ocean Literacy initiative, building a global community of people working to conserve and restore the world’s oceans. “Sustainability is now a hot topic,” says Pontroué. “And it’s not an option any more for consumers. It is essential, taken for granted.”
Later in the year, we can expect to see Swiss best quality replica watches or two bringing cheap Swiss movements super clone Panerai watches and Jauncey together. They’re keeping their powder dry for now, but given luxury Panerai fake watches’ recent record of pairing limited-edition Swiss made knockoff watches with money-can’t-buy experiences fronted by their ambassadors, it’s reasonable to assume there’s a Jauncey watch-cum-ticket to ride package in the pipe.
“If you get travel right, you can have a positive impact on the places you go to, the environment and yourself,” says Jauncey. “That’s the circular tourism economy.”
