Do you want to wear a watch that is totally unique and special? Then the Oris Aquis Date Upcycle is for you! Oris has a daily commitment to fighting against plastic pollution in our oceans, and to further this fight the watchmaker chose to release a watch to reflect this initiative. In this post, GENEVE introduces this watch model and explains how it is made.
A timepiece made from PET plastic
Unlike other watches by the brand, this model is made from a recycled synthetic material called PET plastic, which is part of the polyester family, a manmade synthetic material derived from petroleum. As the watch is made from this recycled material, each blend is unique and no two dials are exactly the same. Oris wanted to prove that it was possible to create a watch that was both beautiful and made from recycled plastic, and they did an excellent job!
For all wrists
There are two Oris Aquis Date Upcycle models to ensure that no one is left out. Indeed, you can choose between a 41.5 mm diameter and a 36.5 mm one, ensuring that the watch will adapt to your wrist. Both sizes contain the Oris 733 automatic calibre based on the Sellita SW200-1, which builds up a power reserve of 38 hours. The model features all the elements of a diving watch, i.e., the screw-down crown, the unidirectional rotating diver’s bezel, the luminescent dot and the luminescent hands and indexes. The timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 300 metres. The ceramic bezel has an attractive light grey colour that contrasts with the coloured details of the dial. Meanwhile the dial is surprising, fun and colourful and gives your wrist an artistic touch.
