NEW : Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition II

Following on from their first collaboration in 2010 Oris has once again partnered with the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) to issue a new limited edition diver’s watch, part of the proceeds of which will go towards the protection and conservation of the Great Barrier Reef.

Based on Oris’ Aquis, the new Great Barrier Reef II’s case is 46mm of stainless steel, water resistant to 500m, and with a unidirectional rotating bezel with a black polished ceramic inlay.

The dial is dark blue (a nod to the water of the Reef) with applied indices filled with Super-LumiNova. Being a dive watch, naturally the hour and minute hands and yellow seconds hand are also lumed. In addition to the date window at 6 o’clock is a day display on an inner chapter ring.

The case back features a commemorative engraving of a map of Australia and the limitation number (x/2000).

Inside is the Sellita SW 220-1 based Oris Calibre 735 with 28,800VPH and a power reserve of thirty-eight hours.

RRP will be $2,900 on a rubber strap and $3,000 on a metal bracelet with an adjustable clasp. It should be available from February 2016.

  2. Possibly a little but Oris has used this design for quite some time. If anything maybe the crown area. The Oris Aquis overall has a look and style of its own or appears to be. Of course I recently purchased this piece on the bracelet and there is a ton of attention to detail on this model so I amight be a little bias lol. However, I do see what you are saying. I think it’s the crown area maybe?
