Oris has been crafting beautiful and innovative mechanical watches for over 115 years — and unlike many watch companies, Oris is still independently owned. Hailing from Hölstein, Switzerland, Oris thrives in the rugged environments of diving, aviation and motor sport — all while maintaining its focus on accurate timekeeping and daily function. Oris’s 43mm Great Barrier Reef dive watch is now available in a limited-edition model as part of Oris’ Oceans Project, aimed at raising awareness of the many threats to the health of the world’s oceans.
This limited edition piece is stunning as well as capable with a blue-gradient dial, a blue ceramic bezel insert and a circular date window that stands out in a sea of square equivalents. In keeping with the purpose behind it, a portion of all profits from this timepiece will directly support coral planting in partnership with the Reef Restoration Foundation, an Australian non-profit organization. If you want a beautifully-made Swiss dive watch and ocean conservation is a cause you care deeply about, this Great Barrier Reef diver gives you the chance to put your money where your heart is.
