Oris - Springtime Vibes at Oris

Oris Springtime Vibes at Oris

If you need some horological cheer, then look no further than Oris’s spring releases that capture all the magic of the season of rebirth

Oris usually unveils its 2021 timepieces in early December on the ski slopes of Zermatt. It is one of my favourite events of the year as it entails skiing over a whole range of mountains to get there! This year, of course, was quite different, but Oris still found a way to delight us with a new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy collection that looks almost good enough to eat!

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy

This new unisex collection takes the full bronze case, bezel, crown, and bracelet from the Oris Hölstein Edition 2020 and adds a pop of colour with dials in a choice of sky blue, wild green, and lipstick pink to lighten your mood after the winter season.

The Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy comes in a 38mm size and features the same hands and applied indexes filled with a bright Super-LumiNova and domed sapphire crystal from the Divers Sixty-Five family.

The timepieces are powered by the Oris Calibre 733, a Swiss Made automatic movement that indicates the hours, minutes, and seconds from the centre, and the date in an aperture at six o’clock. Other details include a stainless steel caseback, water-resistance of 100 metres, and a power reserve of 38 hours. Each piece will patinate over time as the bronze will start to oxidize and take on its very own character.

Oris AcquisPro Date Cal. 400

Next in Oris’s 2021 spring line-up is the AcquisPro Date Cal. 400 professional diver’s watch. This is the latest Oris timepiece to be equipped with the brand’s new in-house Calibre 400. This movement sets a new standard in mechanical watchmaking with its elevated anti-magnetism, superior accuracy, five-day power reserve, and a 10-year warranty.

The AquisPro Date Cal. 400 comes with several innovations developed specifically for divers. The first is the brand’s patented Rotation Safety System that enables the diver to lock the uni-directional rotating bezel and read the remaining dive time with certainty. There is also a patented Oris Sliding Sledge Clasp that allows divers to finetune the size of the strap, even when in the water with a wetsuit. And lastly, a third innovation, the Oris Safety Anchor, stops the watch from falling off if the clasp accidentally opens thanks to two hooks that hold the strap in place. The timepiece comes in a 49.5 mm titanium case with a low-glare black DLC coating and a yellow and white minutes scale for low-light legibility. Divers will also appreciate the chunky rubber grip which makes use possible even with diving gloves.

Oris Dat Watt Limited Edition

The Oris Dat Watt Limited Edition continues Oris’s mission to create “Change for Better”. This special edition has been created to raise funds and awareness for the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat (CWSS) whose mission is to conserve this incredibly important biodiverse site located in the southeastern part of the North Sea.

The 11,500 km area spans Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands and has over 500 km of coastline, making it the world’s largest tidal system. Over 10 million migratory birds pass through the area every year. The Wadden Sea is under constant threat from fishing, harbour development, oil and gas rigs, wind farms, maritime traffic, tourism, and climate change.

A portion of proceeds from the Oris Dat Watt Limited Edition will go to support the work of the CWSS. The name of the watch – “Dat Watt” – is taken from the name of the Wadden Sea in a local dialect. Limited to 2009 pieces, as a nod to the year UNESCO added the area to its World Heritage Site list, the timepiece is part of Oris’s Aquis collection. Housed in a 43.5mm stainless steel case, the Dat Watt is powered by an automatic movement and features the lunar cycle and tidal range in the Northern Hemisphere on the dial.

The system works using a central pointer hand that once aligned with the date in the 29.5 lunar cycle, shows the corresponding tidal range via the white outline on the dial. This same hand also indicates the phases of the moon.

There is certainly a lot to be excited about at Oris this springtime with an eclectic selection of timepieces that have been created to allow clients to interact and appreciate nature like never before.
