@Oriswatches @Baselworld – Business and Diving. I invite you to discover two new Oris timepieces.

 

 

 Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition

 

The Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition is a diver that will help raise funds for a shark conservation project run by the non-profit organization Pelagios Kakunjá, and supported by Oris ambassador and professional diver Jérôme Delafosse. Project scientists will tag sharks using MiniPAT satellite transmitters funded by Oris.

Each transmitter will track the sharks for six to nine months before being automatically released on a set date and floating to the surface, from where they will transmit collected data to satellites. This data will help scientists understand sharks better so they can advise government agencies on fishing practices. Fishing is one of the greatest threats to sharks, which can become entangled in nets while feeding.

The Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition is based on the second-generation Aquis collection, also launched this year. The new line picks up on the spirit and design DNA of the original 2011 Aquis. The new Aquis has a visually lighter feel than its predecessor. Being a professional diver it offers a uni-directional rotating bezel with a black ceramic inlay, the case is water resistance to 50 bar (500 metres).

Limited to 2,000 pieces, the watch reflects the colour of the ocean with a blue central seconds hand and a blue minutes scale around the outer edge of its grey dial. The case back is embossed with a hammerhead shark and the limited edition number.

  • The new ones of Oris are nice watches but for me too large and big.
    I stay with my maximum 40mm watches at all.
