Enjoy Oris Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series Watch

Apr 13, 2011
The horological company Oris delights the audience with the presentation of its new Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series watch.

The novelty is a respectful nod to Carlos Coste, a world class free-diver and record-holder. In 2010, he stunned the world by swimming without apparatus 150 meters through a passage inside Dos Ojos. The latter is a colossal cave network that twists for 31 miles under Yucatan, Mexico.

Strictly limited to 2000 pieces, the new Oris watch employs a titanium case with a ceramic top ring and Superluminova inlay. It also features a screwed back side, embossed with the brands logo.

The automatic helium escape valve, found at 9 oclock, deploys if critical pressure thresholds are exceeded. It allows the helium to escape but prevents water from entering the watch. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 500 meters.

The new Oris Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series watch shows off a black dial. It reveals applied indices inlaid with Superluminova. The dial ensures central hours, minutes and stop seconds. The watch face also offers subsidiary dials at 6, 9 and 12 oclock.

The minute counter, glowing in the dark, shows the time spent under water. The triangle at the 2-minute position symbolizes the time Carlos needed to complete the run that is 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The other triangle at the 7-minute position denotes his personal record of holding the breath for up to 7 minutes.

Animating the functions is an automatic mechanical ETA 7750 chronograph movement with a red rotor. The new Oris watch is coupled with a titanium metal bracelet, terminating in an easy adjustable folding clasp.
