Swiss watch maker Oris has announced a new partnership with the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance, also known as Force Recon, one of the elite US Special Forces companies.
Force Recon is a special operations command unit – like the US Navy Seals or Army Special Forces – that operates independently behind enemy lines to provide military intelligence to Marine Air-Ground Task Forces, performing deep reconnaissance and direct action missions at sea and on land.
For Force Recon, Oris has created a high-performance, state-of the-art wristwatch designed to meet the unit’s demanding equipment standards. The Oris Force Recon GMT is based on Oris’s innovative ProDiver, the diver’s watch renowned for its Oris-developed Rotation Safety System, which locks the bezel into place according to the wearer’s requirements.
The 49mm case is made of titanium and treated with a tough black DLC coating, while the unidirectional rotating bezel inlay is made of scratch-resistant matt black ceramic. The watch comes on a black rubber strap, with a black NATO fabric strap option included in the presentation case. The rubber strap features Oris’s pioneering quick-adjustment sliding sledge folding clasp, which can be adjusted while the watch is being worn. Protection and cover is offered by a ‘tactical watch cover’ – a mask with a retractable top section that wraps around the watch.
