Oris has highlighted environmental causes for years by promoting them alongside new editions of its popular Aquis dive watch. The Aquis line’s latest release is the Oris Aquis Date Relief which is coupled to the efforts of Ernst Bromeis, an endurance swimmer and water conservation ambassador. Bromeis and Oris have partnered for a global freshwater preservation campaign called The Blue Miracle, a series of swims that will start with an 800km swim across the world’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Baikal.
The 43.5mm timepiece is a high-performance diver that’s rated to 30 bars of water resistance and is the first-ever Aquis to offer a relief bezel. Its radially-finished slate dial is inspired by the color of a stormy sea and pairs beautifully with a red rubber strap. It’s a perfect watch to accompany Bromeis as he raises public awareness of the need to conserve our freshwater resources.
