Oris has renewed its collaboration with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat, revealing a brand-new special-edition Aquis, inspired by salt marshes. Meet the Dat Watt Limited Edition II.
Taking inspiration from the salt marshes of the Wadden Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s largest unbroken intertidal flats system, the Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition II “is a joyful symbol of Change for the Better”, the Swiss luxury watchmaker says. The second watch created in partnership with CWSS, an organisation working to conserve the Wadden Sea in northern Europe, this 2 009-piece limited edition is a symbolic timpiece.
The Dat Watt Limited Edition II sports ’s 43.5 mm multi-piece stainless steel case, replete with a screw-in crown and case case back, and a uni-directional rotating bezel with a grey insert. The latter hue is beautifully contrasted by the watch’s shimmering green dial, reminescent of the waters of the salt marshes. The hands and indices are treated with Super-LumiNova for enhanced visibility, whether its nighttime or you’re 300 metres below the surface of the sea.
The case, which is coupled with a multi-piece stainless steel bracelet, complete with a security folding clasp, houses Oris’ 743 calibre movement. The automatic unit offers a power reserve of 38 hours.
Each piece ships with a special presentation box. The Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition II is priced at CHF 2 900 (R62 680).
