Oris’s series of limited edition luxury watches is helping clean, protect and restore the world’s oceans.
The independent Swiss watch company has been leading the way by supporting ocean conservation initiatives for years, most recently through The Oceans Project, which raises awareness and funds for non-profit agencies with game-changing visions.
The latest expression of Oris’s mission is the Blue Whale Limited Edition, the third and final piece in the Oris Ocean Trilogy, a trio of watches based on the Oris Aquis diver’s watch.
The new watch is limited to 200 pieces and will only be available as part of a set delivered in a unique presentation case made of recycled PET plastic bottles.
The first two pieces in the trilogy were announced at Baselworld this year.
The Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III and the Clean Ocean Limited Edition have been made in partnership with the Reef Restoration Foundation and Pacific Garbage Screening.
While those watches focused on restoring coral reefs and cleaning the world’s waters, the Blue Whale Limited Edition protecting and preserving our oceans greats-whales.
The Oris Blue Whale Limited Edition is the first Aquis chronograph with a 3, 6 and 9 dial layout.
The timepiece is encased with a stainless steel case, uni-directional rotating bezel with aqua blue ceramic insert. Its size 45.50 mm, and a water resistance of 50 bar (500 m).
Its winding mechanism is automatic with a power reserve of 48 hours.
With only 200 limited edition pieces this Swiss watch is presented alongside the Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III and the Oris Clean Ocean Limited Edition in a box with an outer shell made of recycled PET plastic bottles.
