Oris has launched a new limited edition diver’s watch luxury and its first pure gold watch to support the Coral Restoration Foundation.
It’s time to talk about ORIS again. Do you think I can join ORIS payroll now? No, just brand fans, especially what they are doing to raise awareness about climate change.
Let’s talk about the watch first.
It is called the Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition and is the first watch made of 18 carats of pure gold. Only 50 pieces are available, so I won’t bother the PR team in this tie round to ask for free gifts. (Although I can actually do this).
Carysfort gets its name from Carysfort Reef, a coral reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
The Florida Keys is just a lofty place to visit. If you want to travel by car, you can fly to Miami, rent a convertible, and take the infamous Seven Mile Mile Bridge to Key West. A drinking water town with fishing problems.
Since 2014, Oris has been collaborating with the Coral Restoration Foundation as part of its mission to “bring better change” and has donated three works to the foundation for auction. The funds raised from the sale of the remaining limited edition works will also help support its work.
What is shocking is that, what is shocking is that climate change is causing slow and irreversible damage to corals all over the world. It is believed that human heritage may be the degradation of all natural corals in the world. A terrible statistic in the press release (if you want to send me a message directly, I will be happy to forward it) is that the coral population of the Keys Islands has decreased by about 98%.
However, Oris is the standard bearer who made people aware of the terrible deletion of natural coral. The limited edition of Oris Carysfort Reef may have a huge impact on the work of the foundation. The auction of the three works donated by Oris to the foundation will be held in a series of events in the United States in February, March and April, and the last one will be the Foundation’s own “Elevating the Reef” celebration. The funds raised from the sale of the remaining limited edition works will also help support its work.
The Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition is based on Oris’s high-performance Aquis diver’s watch, and has the same standard specifications, including water resistance to 300 meters. But this is the first Oris diver’s watch, made of sturdy 18-carat gold – the case, bezel, crown and crown protection are all made of precious materials. Its hands are gold-plated and equipped with luminous Super-LumiNova®, including the “lollipop” central seconds hand.
The automatic mechanical watch has the function of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or the second time zone. It is indicated by the central pointer and performs a complete inspection of the dial every 24 hours. The second time zone can be read on the 24-hour chapter ring on the dial, and the laser-engraved 24-hour scale on the bidirectional rotating bezel can be used to indicate the third time zone. The frame insert is made of scratch-resistant and fade-resistant black and blue ceramics, and is designed to indicate the day and night time in other time zones.
The blue gradient dial of this watch has sapphire crystal glass, the edges gradually darken, and the date window at three o’clock. The solid gold caseback is decorated with a limited edition numbered sapphire crystal inlay with a special pattern to celebrate the milestone of the Coral Restoration Foundation planting 30,000 corals. It is placed on a blue belt with a rubber coating.
