Partnership Spotlight: Oris and Water Conservation
For years, Oris has been committed to protecting and conserving the world’s water, and they’ve recently announced multiple innovative new timepieces that support this mission.
Aquis Clean Ocean Limited Edition
As part of The Oceans Project and through a partnership with Pacific Garbage Screening, the Clean Ocean Limited Edition brings awareness to the abundant amount of plastic affecting the world’s oceans. Each of the 2,000 timepieces features a unique medallion made of recycled plastic in the case back and are presented in boxes made of environmentally friendly algae with recycled plastic inlays. This model will be available starting in June 2019.
Aquis Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III
Oris’ 3rd edition of the Great Barrier Reef watch was introduced as part of The Oceans Project and will support the coral planting activities of Reef Restoration Foundation. The uni-directional rotating bezel signifies the colors of the reef waters. This model will be available starting in June 2019.
Aquis Date Relief
Oris’ new high-performance diver’s watch, the Aquis Date Relief, was created with the goal to raise awareness of the Earth’s fragile supply of freshwater. Oris has partnered with expedition swimmer Ernst Bromeis who is currently working on “The Blue Miracle,” a series of swims across Lake Baikal, the world’s largest freshwater lake, that will take him 60 days. The gray dial is said to be inspired by a stormy sea, and the timepiece boasts 30 bar water-resistance, applied hour markers and luminescent Super-LumiNova® hour and minute hands.
We’re continuously impressed with Oris’ commitment to water conservation and their partnerships with individuals and non-profit organizations on initiatives that promote change.
