On a quest to educate the world on the importance of water, Oris have teamed up with expedition swimmer and water ambassador, Ernst Bromeis. His 2019 project ‘The Blue Miracle,’ which includes a series of swims starting with Lake Baikal, an 800km challenge across the world’s largest freshwater lake, taking him 60 days at 12 degrees Celsius is the perfect way to raise awareness. 

 

Of course, the Oris Aquis Date Relief will be fastened to his wrist, which is designed to survive tough underwater environments. Its grey dial reflects the stormy sea and the diving scale emulates the texture of water. Together, they hope to bring change to our oceans before it is too late.

Limited to just 2000 pieces, the design hopes to raise awareness of the threat that plastic causes to our oceans and marine life. Every timepiece features a piece of recycled plastic inserted into the case back as a reminder that we can all try to find a more ecologically friendly way to live and to clear the seas of trash. Oris are working with the pioneering organisation, Pacific Garbage Screening that is currently developing a way to capture plastic before it can enter the ocean and turn plastic into energy. The new limited edition with its aqua blue dial emphasises the importance of water in all its beauty.
