Oris’ latest diver’s watch is inspired by a submarine volcano located off the coast of El Hierro, the most south-western of the Spanish-owned Canary Islands.
The independent Swiss watchmaker Oris has partnered with the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) to support three student scholarships at the Faculty of Marine Sciences at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC). The travel scholarships will be open to those studying for a Master’s degree in oceanography and will include internships which will be framed to the Master thesis project in relation to the El Hierro volcano. Despite being a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2000, the volcanic El Hierro is the least studied of the Canary Islands.
