Oris Creates Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition Watch

Jun 04, 2010
The top Swiss watchmaker Oris has initiated a partnership with the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) in order to ensure survival of the Great Barrier Reef, the largest reef system in the world. On this occasion the brand has released a limited series diver’s watch.

The Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition watch is instantly identifiable due to its charismatic design. Encouraged by clear blue waters around the reef, the brand’s creative minds dressed the watch dial in blue and graced it with a wave pattern. The timepiece display features Superluminova-coated indices, which ensure that the time can be easily read even in dim underwater conditions. The progression of hours and minutes is marked by nickel hands treated with “Dark Orange” Superluminova compound.

The alluring dial of the Oris limited edition watch is housed in a multi-piece 47 mm case rendered in stainless steel. It is equipped with a crown manufactured from the same material. The case is also endowed with a manual helium valve, which guarantees the watch endures the pressure during resurface time. The watch is framed by a unidirectional rotating bezel equipped with a minute scale. On the front side the case reveals a domed sapphire crystal with an internal anti-glare treatment. The back of the case is embossed with the AMCS logo.

At the heart of this horological product is beating a self-winding mechanical movement. This mechanism provides the functions of indicating hours and minutes. They are complimented by that of small seconds displayed at 4 o’clock. The date aperture is nestled at 6 o’clock.

The Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition watch is accompanied by a rubber strap or a multi-piece stainless steel bracelet. Each of the versions is equipped with a stainless steel folding clasp and an adjustable strap lengthening system. The issue of this model is strictly limited to 1000 pieces.

The novel Oris watch is proposed with a neoprene zip case, bearing AMCS logo, a diver’s log book and a limited edition certificate.

CHF 50 from every timepiece sold will be transferred to AMCS.
