Oris Divers Sixty-Five Special Edition Model with r-Radyarn® Strap

In September this year, to mark the World Clean-Up Day (Sep 14-15), Swiss watch brand Oris launched a special edition Divers Sixty-Five on a strap made of recycled plastic.

The material used in the strap is called r-Radyarn®, which is made from post-consumer recycled polymer. The versatile material is dope-dyed, bacteriostatic, UV-stabilised and certified for harmful substances according to the international Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

This delivers a number of benefits. PET recycling uses an existing material; it removes the need for further natural resources; when reworked, it doesn’t lose its basic characteristics; it can be re-used several times; and under certain conditions, it can be 100 per cent recyclable with no harmful emissions. In fact, every 1kg of recycled PET prevents the emission of 3kg of carbon dioxide.

It also saves approximately 50 per cent of the energy required to produce new PET, meaning recycling conserves the non-renewable energy sources from which PET is derived. Similarly, the solution dyeing process saves water and energy consumption.
