Under the influence of waste plastics, the global ecology is facing an extremely severe test, and environmental protection actions cannot be delayed. In order to awaken people’s awareness of jointly protecting the global environment, from September 14 to 15, 2018, the Swiss independent watchmaking brand, Oris, actively joined the World Cleansing Day in the world, and it was obliged to clean the town and garbage waste along the coast, what’s more, Oris launched the “World Clean Day” special watch, that is Oris Divers 65 2018 Recycled Textile Strap Mens Automatic Watch 01 733 7720 4035-07 5 21 13.
Environmental problems caused by plastics continue to plague the planet: on the one hand, resources that can be used to produce plastic are being exhausted, and on the other hand, improper disposal of plastic products will have potentially catastrophic consequences for the ecological environment. According to UNEP estimates, about 8 million tons of plastic waste flows into the ocean each year, posing a huge threat to the marine ecosystem. Decomposing these plastic wrecks will take years, decades or even centuries.
In the awe of the ocean, Oris has been committed to marine environmental protection in recent years, such as funding the marine research and protection of the island of Ile, and working with the International Coral Rehabilitation Foundation to adopt the sand tiger shark in the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium as well as planting vegetation in Chongming Island, Shanghai. This year, as a brand that is responsible for society and ecology, Oris decided to continue to participate in the “World Clean Day”, a global environmental protection initiative, and to form a team of thousands of people with subsidiaries and partners around the world. In the third weekend of September, globally, it is obliged to clean garbage from towns and coastlines.
As a part of the 2018 response to World Cleansing Day, Oris launched the Divers Sixty-Five special watch with a belief in environmental protection. Unlike the iconic traditional Divers Sixty-Five series, the strap of this special edition diving watch is made of recycled plastic polymer material r-Radyarn®. The metal frame of the scale is also different from the previous one, it is adopted with gold-plated material. As a pioneer in the industry, Oris has integrated innovative recycled materials into the production of timepieces, saving about 50% of the energy needed to produce materials for the first time, fulfilling the promise of #changforthebetter.
In addition, Oris also invited the French marine documentary producer Jérôme Delafosse as the brand ambassador and filmed the theme blockbuster for this special edition at the seaside. As a pioneer in marine protection that has been exploring the ocean for more than 20 years, Jérôme Delafosse is well aware of the damage caused by plastic waste to the marine ecological environment, and it is also true that marine environmental protection cannot be delayed. He believes that the awareness of awakening people is one of the cores of the marine protection industry can continue to advance, and the launch of the special Divers Sixty-Five on the occasion of World Clean Day has a far-reaching significance. “When you are proud of having a watch made from recycled plastic, this will be the first step in your change.” Jérôme Delafosse believes that the world should be work hard for a better future.
As a Swiss independent watchmaking brand, Oris is proud of its brand watchmaking tradition, and with a heart of hope to make the world a better place, especially in terms of environmental protection. Oris always has a sense of responsibility for society and ecology, and actively participates in various public welfare activities. Ulrich W. Herzog, President of Oris Global, said that he is very happy to be involved in the global change initiative, which is part of the brand’s long-term strategy and will continue to focus on sustainable materials in the future. In the production of watches, it contributes to a better future.
