Oris is once again introducing a model to support the work of the Australian non-profit Coral Reef Restoration Foundation.
*Great Barrier Reef
The Limited Edition IV (4th edition) is a model that supports activities to prevent coral bleaching, and is equipped with Caliber 400 under the beautiful gradation dial. Limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. *

A unique dial with a vertical gradation starting from the 12 o’clock position. Coral reefs around the world are in crisis due to large-scale bleaching events. Oris supports the non-profit Coral Reef Restoration Foundation in its efforts to conserve life-giving ecosystems.

Research shows that 73 per cent of the remaining corals on the Great Barrier Reef are severely bleached.
According to a report by the Australian Institute of Marine Science, 73% of coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park are affected by bleaching. In March this year, the Great Barrier Reef faced its fifth major bleaching event. This is due to an increase in small algae caused by rising water temperatures. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, coral reefs occupy just 1% of the ocean, but support 25% of marine life, which keep the oceans healthy and provide 70% of the planet’s oxygen. Masu. Coral reefs also contribute trillions of dollars of value to the global economy and have a significant impact on the future of our planet.
Coral reefs are found in more than 100 countries around the world, supporting marine biodiversity and providing social, cultural and economic benefits. More than 800 species of coral are home to one-third of all known marine life, many of which exclude
microorganisms such as fungi. Scientists estimate that 90% of coral reef species remain undiscovered, and that there could be more than 800,000 species. This is a surprising number since coral reefs cover only 1% of the sea surface, or approximately 285,000 square
kilometers.
Coral reefs, which have an evolutionary history spanning hundreds of years, provide a rich habitat for biological symbiosis, and it is estimated that approximately 1 billion people benefit directly or indirectly. In addition to their roles as sources of food, tourism, and medicine, as well as their role as breakwaters that reduce damage from storms and floods, coral reefs have a total economic value of approximately $2.7 trillion. It is rated as being the best.

The Coral Reef Restoration Foundation is an Australian non-profit organization established in 2016 to combat coral bleaching. Coral is cultivated to adapt to environmental changes.
A diver works to grow coral into a tree shape. The goal is to transplant billions of coral larvae into a natural environment.

Oris has been co-sponsoring the Coral Reef Restoration Foundation since 2018 as part of its mission to ‘make a difference for the better’, and is pleased to announce that the Great Barrier Reef will be limited to 2,000 pieces.
We are pleased to announce Limited Edition IV (4th edition).

This watch provides financial support for the foundation’s coral cultivation activities.
New generation Aquis Date unveiled at Geneva Watches & Wonders Based on the Caliber 400, we added some special details that express the Foundation’s story.
First of all, the vivid gradation blue dial reflects the turquoise blue of the Great Barrier Reef seen from the sky and the sunlight pouring into the ocean. It is characterized by a unique sunray finish that spreads out from the 12 o’clock position instead of at the center of the dial. The bezel insert is made of gray tungsten, and the case back is engraved with a special design and limited edition number. The base Aquis Date 43.50mm is a tool watch that is water resistant to 30 ATM (300 m). The stainless steel case, screw-down crown, crown guard and triple bracelet all feature ergonomic improvements. Oris’ new patented quick-adjust clasp system allows you to easily fine-tune the size without removing the watch. Convenient for putting on and taking off your wetsuit, or when you want to loosen it up a bit or improve the fit.
The movement is Oris’ revolutionary in-house self-winding Caliber 400, which has a 5-day power reserve, high anti-magnetic properties, and is maintenance-free for 10 years. The warranty period is extended to 10 years with Myolis registration.
The gradation dial looks like looking up at the sea surface from inside the sea. The back cover is engraved with Great Barrier Reef coral and the limited edition number.
