At DFD, we are proud of our partner Oris and their commitment to sustainability and the environment. In support of the Coral Restoration Foundation’s mission, Oris has launched a new limited-edition timepiece. This is actually the second watch Oris has released to raise funds and awareness for the benefit of the foundation.
Headquartered in Key Largo, Florida, Coral Restoration Foundation is the world’s largest reef restoration organization, created in response to the widespread loss of Florida’s Coral Reefs. In 2014, an alliance was established between the Foundation and the Swiss watch company in order to strengthen Oris’ mission known as “Change for the Better”.
This new timepiece, the Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition, is the first Oris Aquis made of solid gold. The case is cast in 18-carat yellow gold, accompanied by a solid 18-carat gold bezel with a ceramic insert. ithas a GMT function, showing three time zones at the same time.
Oris will donate three pieces of a collection of fifty 18-carat yellow gold watches to the foundation. The auction will consist of the numbers 02/50, 03/50 and 04/50 and will take place during the spring season, with the objective of raising funds and awareness in support of Coral Restoration Foundation’s activities.
