Let us introduce you to the new Oris World Clean Up Day Special Edition watch, another fine example of the commitment and passion the Oris watch company has for the preservation of our oceans. From the recent Source of Life model to last year’s Clipperton limited edition, Oris continues to demonstrate a determination to be both socially and economically responsible for our precious planet.
Every year, the Let’s Do It Foundation brings together millions of volunteers from all over the globe to clean up the world in a single day. It has become one of the biggest civic actions in history and this year, on September 15th, Oris made it their mission to take part. With over 15 of the watch manufacturer’s global subsidiaries involved, they helped raise awareness and gather over 1,000 people to clean up our world’s towns and coastlines.
Oris Chairman Ulrich W. Herzog stated: “As an independent Swiss watch brand, we’re proud of our watchmaking traditions, but we’re also very passionate about bringing change to our world for the better, and in particular about conserving the world’s environment. Our goal is to protect the environment and to support other areas in the world in need of conservation.”
Alongside their participation in the event, Oris released the new Oris World Clean Up Day Special Edition watch which not only raises awareness for the cause but also sports a strap made from recycled plastic. The woven strap has been sustainably sourced and recycled from r-Radyarn plastic, a first in the watch industry that demonstrates the importance of turning plastic waste into something reusable.
The Oris World Clean Up Day Special Edition watch will be a familiar sight to most Oris fans since the design is the recognisable Sixty Five model we have seen many times before. It boasts a 42mm stainless steel case with a black unidirectional aluminium bezel and domed sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment. The dial itself is a gorgeous ocean blue with retro inspired Superluminova hands and indices equipped to display hour, minutes and seconds and the date at 3 o clock. The well-known Oris 733 automatic movement is hidden within which provides an impressive power reserve of 38 hours and 28’800 A/h.
We expect more charitable efforts to come from Oris in the future, but for now why not get involved and help raise awareness for an incredible cause and pre-order your own Oris World Clean Up Day Special Edition watch here. This gorgeous model currently retails at £1,550 with a release date expected later this month.
