Introducing the Oris Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition watch
Friday - 16 April 2021
Limited to 2009 pieces worldwide, the gradient grey-blue dial of the new Oris Aquis Dat Watt Watch mirrors the hues of the Wadden Sea territory and its salty marshes that are a haven for both sea life and marine birds.
The new Oris Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition watch is ready to take to the water with its impressive dive features combined with a stunning gradient blue-grey dial. The watch signifies the importance of clean oceans and marine conservation with a timepiece that marks Oris’ collaboration with the Wadden Sea Secretariat.
If you were to travel the southern part of the North Sea between Denmark, the Netherlands and Germany, you would find the Wadden Sea. An area that covers over 11,000km2 of biodiverse sea, of which 2,300 species of flora and 2,700 marine species call home. In addition to this, the location is also where 10 million migratory birds find themselves heading each year. Sadly, it is also under constant threat of maritime traffic and fishing. Despite this, much of its intertidal ecosystem still functions undisturbed but it needs protecting, thus here is where Oris comes to the rescue once again with its commitment to clean-up movements around the world. Oris watch company has collaborated with many non-profit environmental organisations over recent years in a bid to raise awareness of the devastating effects mankind is having upon marine ecosystems. Its latest project involves the Wadden Sea Secretariat – an organisation that aims to preserve and protect the Wadden Sea and its unbroken tidal flat system. In addition to raising awareness of ocean conservation, it releases the beautiful Oris Aquis Dat Watt limited edition.
To mark its support for the new cause, Oris borrows from its reliable dive watch model – the Oris Aquis. The 43.5mm model comprises a multi-piece stainless steel case construction and comes with a stunning gradient blue-grey dial. The watch is limited to just 2009 pieces. That’s not any old number. It refers to the year in which the Wadden Sea was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. CEO of Oris explains a little more about the outcome the brand strives for in releasing the new limited edition Aquis watch;
As well as raising awareness, we will also be supporting the organisation’s conservation efforts with funds raised from sales of the Dat Watt Limited Edition. Why? It’s the right thing to do.”
The new Oris Aquis Dat Watt diver’s watch offers many key features in addition to its limited availability. It features a robust stainless steel bracelet, a unidirectional rotating bezel and is named after the local dialect referring to the Wadden Sea territory. It also features a pointer moon function - a complication that was developed exclusively for Oris dive watches. The new Oris Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition watch has a water mark of 300-meters, making it suitable for diving and underwater exploration. The unidirectional rotating bezel crafted from brushed steel can only rotate in a counter-clockwise direction to eradicate the risk of increasing remaining dive time whilst underwater. The back of the case is screwed down and is specially engraved with an image depicting the Wadden Sea, along with its limited edition number.
The dial of the new limited edition Oris Aquis Dat Watt watch in a gradient blue-grey displays different shades depending on the angle the dial is admired from. The baton-shaped indexes have been coated in a layer of Super-LumiNova as have the chunky, legible hands. The central second hand is topped with a lollipop feature and the 6 o’clock location occupies a date window dressed against a white background. As mentioned earlier, the dial shows the lunar cycle and tidal range through a pointer moon function. The watch shows the tidal range once the date relating to the moon function is aligned with the correct day in the 29.5-day lunar cycle, and also shows the waxing and waning of the moon as it appears in the night sky each evening.
Beating at the heart of the new Oris Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition watch is the Oris Calibre 761 – an engine modified from the Sellita Sw200-1. The self-winding movement promises a 38-hour power reserve and beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Being a limited edition timepiece, the Oris Aquis Dat Watt comes in a unique presentation box. In addition to its screw-in crown and protection guard feature that seamlessly complements the case’s chiselled profile, the watch is also completed on a rugged stainless steel link bracelet. It secures to the wrist with an Oris-engraved foldable clasp with an additional diver’s extension mechanism for wearing over the top of heavy diving gear.
