Holstein, Switzerland-Despite the efforts of governments and international public interest organizations, and the growing awareness of protection, the world’s water resources are still threatened by neglect and waste, and pollution levels Still going up, what we have to do. Oris has introduced a limited edition watch inspired by the Rhine, the Source of Life, to contribute to protecting water resources.
Oris latest limited edition watch with water theme inspired by the Rhine
The source of life limited edition watch, based on Oris’s most iconic Aquis diving watch, is a mechanical work combining practical functions and innovative design. Oris has decades of professional diving watch production history, but what Oris is proud of is that the brand not only manufactures diving watches, but also pays attention to and protects the origin of diving sports-rivers and oceans. The spirit of ‘Go Your Own Way’ as an independent brand.
Water nurtures life, nourishes life, and is closely related to us. The Oris Source of Life Limited Edition is a watch that pays homage to the water. Its design is inspired by the Rhine. The birthplace of Oris and Holstein, the global headquarters, is located in the Rhine Valley, and the brand name ‘Oris’ is also taken from a stream of the same name flowing through the town. A watchmaker with an inextricable bond with water uses watches to express gratitude.
Oris not only manufactures diving watches, but also focuses on and protects the source of diving sports-water
The bottom cover of the watch is engraved with a map of the Rhine river basin. She originated from the Swiss Alps, Lai Da Tuma or Tomsee at 2,343 meters above sea level, stretches 1,233 kilometers northward, flows through 6 countries, and ends in the Netherlands Remit to the North Sea. This largest river in Western Europe is the source of life for people who have lived there for centuries.
Source of Life Limited Edition has the excellent performance of the Aquis series diving watch. Its 43.5mm case is made of stainless steel, waterproof to 300 meters, and equipped with a tungsten steel diving bezel that can only rotate in one direction.

The watch’s calendar display is very special. The calendar scales from 1 to 31 are evenly distributed in the circular groove in the center of the dial. A white calendar pointer runs in this ‘channel’ every month, which means that the cycle is repeated Endlessly, this is the philosophy of water.
The slim second hand has a Super-LumiNova® in the middle, which looks like a ‘lollipop’, suggesting that the effect is very obvious. This is also a major feature of the diving watch. The running second hand can remind the diver that your watch has not stopped and is still timing the dive normally.

The unique gray-blue dial design of the watch is derived from the source of the Rhine, and the color of clear ice and snow is full of vitality and vitality. The watch can be equipped with a stainless steel strap or a rubber strap. The buckle of both straps has an extension, which can be quickly adjusted when worn outside the diving suit.
The Oris Source of Life Limited Edition watch, with 2,343 pieces issued worldwide, is the altitude of the Rhine source. Oris hopes to use this to deepen our understanding of water resources protection and change for the better.
