Swiss watch brand Oris has joined forces with the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) to help protect and preserve the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest reef system. Oris will make a donation to the charity’s vital work, funded by sales of the limited edition diver’s watch called the Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition II.
This is the second time Oris has partnered with the Australian charity, following a successful partnership in 2010. The luxury Swiss watch company is particularly proud to be working with AMCS in its 50th anniversary year. The independent charity was set up in 1965 with a vision to protect Australia’s diverse ocean wildlife. Its work focuses on threatened species, making the country’s fisheries sustainable, and keeping oceans free from pollution.
When designing the watch, Oris took inspiration from the sea, but also focussed on functionality and legibility. So while the dark sea-blue dial and coral yellow detailing mirror the colour palette of the Great Barrier Reef, they also create contrast and therefore legibility, even in the murky conditions below the surface of the water.
The Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition II is a striking, high functioning diver’s watch that makes a significant contribution to the work of one of the world’s most respected and effective marine conservation charities. It will be available from February, 2016, priced CHF 2,100.00.
