Oris Staghorn Restoration Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand Oris is unveiling the Staghorn Restoration Limited Edition, a high performance diver’s watch made in partnership with the Coral Restoration Foundation, a non-profit conservation organisation working to preserve the world’s coral reefs. Oris is supporting its vital work through sales of the watch, which is limited to 2,000 pieces. The Coral Restoration Foundation is a Florida-based, non-profit ocean conservation organisation committed to restoring the world’s coral reefs.
The Staghorn Restoration Limited Edition is part of the sleek next-generation Aquis collection launched this year, and has a number of distinguishing features. The first is its use of colour. The dial is dark blue, while key indications, including the central seconds hand and the bezel’s zero marker on the minute scale are in punchy orange. Orange was chosen both to reflect the colour of Staghorn coral, and because it’s one of the most visible colours in the low-light conditions found underwater.
The dial is punctuated by day and date indications. The day is shown through a sequence of seven windows cut into a circle running around the inner part of the dial, each of which fills with orange on the appropriate day. The date is positioned at 6 o’clock, and is also orange.
As with all watches in the new Aquis collection, the Staghorn Restoration Limited Edition features an automatic mechanical movement and a uni-directional rotating diver’s bezel with a ceramic insert for timing dives. This model has a 43.5mm stainless steel case and is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres). The case back is decorated with a Staghorn coral embossed in relief and the limited edition number.
