Oris has introduced the Aquis Date Relief into its collection of high performance Aquis diver’s watches.
The new watch was released as part of a new partnership with the expedition swimmer and water ambassador Ernst Bromeis.
Mr Bromeis took the Aquis Date Relief to Lake Baikal with photographer Maurice Haas for a preparation swim ahead of his 2019 project ‘The Blue Miracle’, which will see him swim across a number of lakes, including Lake Baikal, the world’s largest freshwater lake, to raise awareness of the world’s water.
The watch shares its architecture and performance values with the Oris Aquis Date and has a 43.5mm stainless steel case with a uni-directional rotating diver’s bezel and is water-resistant 300 metres.
It comes on a choice of straps or a metal bracelet, and its sapphire crystal sits over a dial decorated with applied hour markers, which, like the hour and minutes hands, are filled with luminescent Super-LumiNova.
Its Swiss Made automatic mechanical movement provides it with a central seconds hand and a date, seen through a window at 6 o’clock.
