The limited edition diver’s watch made in partnership with Coral Restoration Foundation.
For the second time Oris teams up with the coral restoration organisation. By the end of this year, the foundation will have outplanted over 30,000 corals on Florida’s Carysfort Reef. The independent Swiss watch company donates three yellow gold watches from 50 limited edition pieces to the non-profit organisation, which will auction numbers 02/50, 03/50 and 04/50 at a series of events this spring. The purpose of this special gold edition is to raise as much as possible in support of the foundation's pioneering activities. The Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition is based on Oris’s Aquis diver's watch and features the same standard specifications, including water resistance to 300 metres. Hoverer it’s the first Oris diver’s watch produced in solid 18-carat yellow gold – the 43.50mm case, the bezel, crown and crown protectors are all made of this precious metal. Its hands are yellow-gold-plated and filled with luminescent SuperLumiNova, including the ‘lollipop’ central seconds hand.
The GMT function, indicated by a central hand makes a full tour of the dial once every 24 hours and can be read off against a 24-hour chapter ring on the dial. A laser-engraved 24-hour scale on the bi-directional rotating bezel can be used to indicate a third time zone. The bezel insert is made of scratch- and fade-resistant black and blue ceramic, designed to indicate day and night time for an additional time zone. The watch has a sapphire crystal over a gradient blue dial that darkens towards the edge, and a date window at 3 o’clock. The solid gold caseback is decorated with the limited edition number and a special motif celebrating Coral Restoration Foundation’s milestone of 30,000 corals planted. Inside there is an automatic caliber Oris 798-Sellita SW 330-1 with 42 hours of power reserve. The watch is set on a blue leather strap with a rubber coating, and each of the 50 pieces made will be presented in a special wooden box. The price for Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition – CHF 17’900.
