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 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.

About The Author: Scott Meller


Born and raised in Los Angeles, Scott joined Feldmar Watch Company, Inc. under the tutelage of his father, Sol. As a fourth generation family member, Scott’s forward-thinking business acumen has placed Feldmar on the cutting edge of the luxury timepiece market. Scott’s favorite part about working at Feldmar is being a part of his family’s multi-generational business and having worked alongside his father. His accomplishments are many, including the expansion and remodel of the Feldmar flagship store, as well as a second location inside The Beverly Hilton.

Since attending Santa Monica College, Scott has become an expert in the technical aspects of the timepieces sold at Feldmar. Each year, he travels to Switzerland—the watchmaking capital of the world—to attend the Baselword Watch & Jewelry Fair and build upon his extensive knowledge of this quickly-evolving industry.

Scott is very proud of the way Feldmar customers are put first: “We regularly go out of our way to meet the needs of our clients. A client once purchased a rather significant watch as a birthday gift for his brother who lived in New York. Our client asked how we were going to deliver the gift and we responded with the typical answer, we would ship it by FedEx. After we answered his question, we could tell that he wanted a more personalized experience for the delivery and offered to have it hand-delivered by one of our associates. He lit up at the thought, and so off went one of our associates to New York City for the day to hand-deliver the gift.”
