Oris is continuing its efforts to help clean and protect the world’s water through a new partnership with Seoul Korea Federation for Environmental Movements (KFEM) – a non-profit organisation that aims to restore the Hangang River, one of South Korea’s most important natural resources, to its true glory.
With the release of the Oris Hangang Limited Edition diving watch, the world-renowned luxury Swiss watch brand is placing its full support behind Seoul KFEM’s campaign. After years of neglect, the water quality from the Hangang has declined dramatically, with the river becoming choked by litter and other damaging pollutants.
Oris and Seoul KFEM are joining forces for a series of river clean-up days, and Oris is also supporting the project through sales of this 2,000 piece limited-edition diving watch, which sports a striking deep green dial and ceramic bezel insert – a colour choice inspired by creek waters found at the Hangang’s source.
Based on the foundations of Oris’s high-performance Aquis diving watch, this bold 2,000 piece limited edition with its striking green dial and bezel supports Seoul KFEM’s mission to clean, protect and restore the Hangang River in South Korea
The timepiece is made from a stainless steel 43.5mm case and bracelet. The colour of the unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel insert and dial are inspired by the natural creek waters found at the Hangang’s source. The hands and indices are coated in Super-LumiNova® for extra visibility in darker environements, and you can also find small seconds at 9 o’clock and a circular date window with white indicator. This timepiece has a 38-hour power reserve and is resistant to 300m.
A Hangang River map engraving adorns the stainless-steel case back of this limited edition, which comes in its own special presentation box.
