The Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition wants to save ‘Jaws’
Oris is on a mission. They’re not fighting for their lives against sharks, they’re fighting to save the world’s sharks. And the Hammerhead Limited Edition will help fight the threat of shark extinction. Save ‘Jaws’, buy an Oris!
It’s a pretty bleak picture but in 40 years time, sharks will be extinct. That is the troubling prediction of leading ocean conservation experts who have tracked the decline of the world’s shark population over the last 50 years. Oris won’t have none of that. The independent watch company that made its first diver’s watch in the 1960s and has had a close relationship with the oceans ever since, decided to step up and do something about the threat. Oris wants to make a difference to the future of endangered species, particularly those found in the ocean.
A watch as a weapon
Second generation Aquis
The Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition is based on the second generation Aquis collection , also launched this year. The new line picks up on the spirit of the original 2011 Aquis, bringing the same high-performance together with a more stylish silhouette. Limited to 2,000 pieces, the 45.50mm steel Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition reflects the colour of the ocean with a blue central seconds hand and a blue minutes scale around the outer edge of its grey dial. The case back is embossed with a hammerhead shark and the limited edition number.
The Oris Hammerhead Limited Edition goes on sale in June 2017, priced CHF 2,550.
