ORIS presents a special series of its Big Crown Pointer Date watch in collaboration with the Swiss sustainable deer leather manufacturer Cervo Volante. This series proudly reflects the Swiss watch company’s commitment towards environment protection.
Every year, around 15,000 wild red deer are culled in Switzerland. The operation is entirely legal and necessary, highly regulated, and undertaken to manage deer populations and protect the Swiss countryside.
In 2017, friends Kadri Vunder Fontana, a biotechnology engineer and experienced businesswoman, and Conny Thiel-Egenter, a biologist specialising in nature protection and wildlife and habitat management, founded Cervo Volante. Their vision was to take the waste, specifically deer skins, and transform them into beautiful, hard-wearing and ultimately sustainable footwear and accessories.
Passionate about nature and driven by a desire to make eco-friendly, sustainable shoes and accessories from wild leather, Cervo Volante has also employed Switzerland’s last two remaining tanneries, both of which use 100 per cent vegetable tanning processes.
Recently, Cervo Volante has partnered with Oris for a collaborative project on a sustainable deer leather strap project. Oris has been active in various environment protection activities since long time. This new partnership is a part of the Swiss brand’s much acclaimed Change for the Better campaign.
The Oris x Cervo Volante collaboration begins with three Big Crown Pointer Date watches fitted with deer-leather straps that are allergy free, sustainable and unique. This trio of watches features colourful dials inspired by the Alps, and straps, pouches and card holders produced from Cervo Volante sustainable deer leather.
The Big Crown Pointer Date watch features a 38mm diameter stainless steel case with sapphire crystals on the front and back. It houses an automatic movement with 38 hours power reserve.
