The retro-inspired Oris 65-year-old watch was immediately successful and became one of the best diving watches in the world. And its modern and stylish Aquis Date diving watch is constantly being updated. In May last year, Oris funded the Clipperton Island expedition initiated by the folk scientific research organization N2Pix, carrying out data collection of the endangered shark migration and the research on continuous protection of Clipperton ecosystem. At the end of the expedition, Oris launched a limited edition of Clipperton limited edition under the iconic diving Aquis watch, let’s have a look about one of them, Oris Diving Aquis Clipperton Date Limited Edition Men’s Wristwatch 01 733 7730 4185-Set RS.
Like all diving watches, the Oris Aquis collection has always been characterized by performance and reliability: high performance, flawless legibility, a muscular outer shell and a seamless blend of bracelet and case; a redesigned 43.5 mm case is made of high-grade stainless steel, which offers a stylish silhouette with a combination of polished and brushed finishes. This helps to highlight important lines and curves in the watch design. The screw-in crown is wrapped by a sturdy crown protector to prevent erroneous operation during dive.
The new Oris Aquis Clipperton Automatic Blue Dial Men’s Watch also features a one-way rotating bezel with a scratch-resistant and fade-resistant ceramic for durability. In addition, the use of sapphire crystal on both sides of the case provides additional scratch protection. The black bezel features a 60-minute scale and built-in Super-LumiNova material for added readability. The bezel is also specially knurled, giving excellent grip even when wearing a wetsuit under water. Of course, there is no doubt that this watch has a good 300M waterproof performance, enough for professional diving tasks.
Oris Aquis Date 43.5mm Mens 01 733 7730 4185-Set RS watch born to protect the Clipperton Atoll is specially designer with a gradual blue dial inspired by the color of the waters of Clipperton Island, the lagoon in the middle of the atoll, which is light and blue, but it is surrounded by a sharp drop of more than 60 meters, showing dark and blue charm. The pointer has been redesigned to present a more angular form that is combined with modern and refined aesthetic themes. The hands (hour hand, minute hand and ‘lollipop’ seconds hand) are coated with Super-LumiNova, giving off an exceptionally bright luster, so they are extremely legible even in very low light/dark conditions – any divers’s essential function of diving watch.
