Oris’s care for the marine environment is well-known in the altar, which can be seen from their repeated support for different marine conservation programs or related actions, like a brand Not long ago, it sponsored the Swiss extreme sports player Ernst Bromeis to engage in a project called Blue Miracle, in order to awaken people’s awareness of water resources protection. At the 2019 Baselworld exhibition, ORIS continued to launch the Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III The third generation of the Great Barrier Reef Limited Watch. This is a related series created by the brand to support the coral reef conservation plan after 2011 and 2016.
After 2011 and 2016, ORIS re-launched the Great Barrier Reef Limit List in 2019, in order to awaken people’s attention to the coral reef conservation plan. The new model was replaced with a different movement and the faceplate color was changed. The same thing is Efforts of brands to actively maintain the environment and ecology
The first Great Barrier Reef limited edition watch is equipped with ETA 2836-2 movement, the face plate is mainly blue with orange, the second Great Barrier Reef limited watch is equipped with movement 735, the color is changed to blue With yellow, the function is also in addition to the junior hand + date, and the week display is added. Today’s Great Barrier Reef Limited Table III is also based on the Aquis series, but it has a refreshing experience in function and color.
The new blue face plate is reminiscent of the clear blue of the shallow waters where the coral reefs are located. With the radial effect of the upper plate, the blue is like a constantly changing sea scene in the real ocean.
ORIS began working with the Coral Reef Recovery Foundation, a non-profit organization in 2016. Therefore, the second generation of the Great Barrier Reef Limited Watch is said to be a maiden show of cooperation between the two parties. At the time, although the sales of the second generation were good, the market liked the watch. However, for the purpose, the protection of coral reefs has not attracted much attention because of this. Even in 2016 and 2017, the damage of coral reefs has become more serious. Therefore, the establishment of the Coral Reef Recovery Foundation plays an important role in promoting this action. The role, from ORIS’s 2018 operation to help build a coral tree on the emerald island in Australia, we can see that both sides are working to have some positive impacts on the marine environment, but in order to allow such conservation awareness to sprout in more people’s hearts, By choosing to design a special edition watch, more people can respond to and even participate in such environmental protection actions.
The solid bottom cover is equipped with a movement 743, which is based on the SW220-1 movement and added to the exclusive design of ORIS. If the red automatic disk can be wound in both directions, the power reserve is 38 hours.
The Great Barrier Reef Limited Watch III uses a stainless steel case. Compared with the previous two generations, its 43.5mm diameter is relatively small. This bezel is also made of ceramic. In addition to its attractive visual effects, it has a scratch-resistant and wear-resistant protection. It is also better; the blue dials of the first two Great Barrier Reef Limited Watches are dark blue, and the third generation of blue is biased to the bright blue-green color, which looks reminiscent of the clear shallow seas of coral reef waters, including the bezel The color of the ceramic also continues the hue of the face plate, and the blue used by ORIS on the face plate is still a gradation design, which looks more like the realistic feeling of sea water fluctuations. Different from the previous two generations, ORIS emphasizes the importance of blue in the Great Barrier Reef Limited Table III, so the proportion of the auxiliary color is lowered again, leaving only the inverted triangle mark and date indicator at the 12 o’clock bezel. Use orange embellishment.
Responding to the precious meaning of the limited edition of the Great Barrier Reef Limited Table III, ORIS has also specially designed an exclusive box with a coral reef pattern printed on it, so that the watch owner can get a little surprise only in the limited edition.
The watch is equipped with a movement 743. The functionality of the dial is reflected in the central hour and minute hands and a small second hand at 9 o’clock. The date of the Great Barrier Reef Limited Table III does not follow the common window design of the brand. Instead, a date ring is set on the inner circle of the faceplate, and a third pointer is set on the center axis to indicate the date. Since it is a special edition for the Great Barrier Reef, the waterproof function is of course one of the key points of this model. Its waterproof performance has reached the threshold of the diving watch-300 meters, while the solid bottom cover is engraved with the coral reef pattern. It also indicates the independent number of the limited edition of 2000 watches, and ORIS has also specially designed an exclusive watch box to echo the significance of the limited edition collection.
