ORIS, one of the top global manufacturer of luxury Swiss watches, recently launched its latest products happened at the The Gallery and Amphitheater in Greenbelt 5, Makati.
The lunching event was joined by Mr. Michael Meier, Regional Manager of Oris, members of the press, online community and friends from Oris Philippines.
Mr. Meier shares to the members of the press its campaign about protecting and conserving the world’s oceans as part of mission to bring change for the better. He also introduced Oris Aquis Date Relief into their collection of high performance Aquis diver’s watches, and a new partnership with the expedition swimmer and water ambassador Ernst Bromeis.
Ernst took the Oris Aquis Date Relief to Lake Baikal with photographer Maurice Haas for a preparation swim ahead of his 2019 project ‘The Blue Miracle’, which will see him swim across a number of lakes, including Lake Baikal, the world’s largest freshwater lake, to raise awareness of the world’s water. The Oris Aquis Date Relief is inspired by the colour and feeling of water. The grey dial recalls the colour of a stormy sea, while the watch’s signature diving scale numerals in relief are a reminder of the texture of water, as well as its elemental role in all life.
The watch shares its architecture and performance values with the Oris Aquis Date. It has a 43.50 mm (1.713 inches) stainless steel case with a uni-directional rotating diver’s bezel and is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres). It comes on a choice of straps or a metal bracelet, and its sapphire crystal sits over a dial decorated with applied hour markers, which, like the hour and minutes hands, are filled with luminescent Super-LumiNova®. Its Swiss Made automatic mechanical movement provides it with a central seconds hand – in urgent red – and a date, seen through a window at 6 o’clock.
