A keen supporter of the Red Sea Environmental Centre’s work to protect one of the world’s top diving sites, Swiss watch manufacturer Oris unveils the new Aquis Red Limited Edition. Dedicated to the ongoing support of marine life projects, the latest addition to the Aquis collection celebrates Oris’ commitment to preserving this idyllic seawater inlet.
Nestled between Africa and Asia, the Indian Ocean’s Red Sea is not only one of the world’s top diving sites but also boasts one of the planet’s most diverse ecosystems. A delicately balanced and thriving sub-aquatic environment that homes over 1,200 species of tropical marine life, the conservation of this lush underwater paradise is overseen by the RSEC.
Oris’ new Aquis Red Limited Edition is dedicated to the important role played by the RSEC. Revamping its sportive Aquis case design with striking red accenting, Oris’ new specialist diving watch clearly displays its allegiance to the Red Sea on its numerals, second hand and the minute-scale upon its unidirectional top ring.
Combating the wetsuit compression caused by underwater pressure and the need for adjustments whilst below the surface, Oris’ safety anchor and sliding sledge clasp keep the watch attached to the wrist and easily adjustable at all times. Water resistant to 300m and limited to only 2,000 pieces, the new Oris Aquis Red Limited Edition is presented in a special set.
A tribute to the Red Sea’s wondrous depths and a call to arms for its preservation, this stunning timepiece is the ideal diving companion for those looking for an eye-catching aesthetic underpinned with an environmental consciousness.
