Oris is proud to introduce the Dat Watt Limited Edition II, the second watch created to mark our collaboration with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat (CWSS), an organisation that works to conserve the Wadden Sea in northern Europe.Oris’s mission to bring Change for the Better is gathering momentum. As we publish our second Oris Sustainability Report and detail how we’ve reduced our global carbon emissions by 7.8 per cent, we’re delighted to announce that we have also extended our highly successful collaboration with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat (CWSS) by a further two years, running to the end of 2025.
Our partnership began in 2021 with the Dat Watt Limited Edition watch and now continues with a second limited-edition piece. The Dat Watt Limited Edition II is inspired by the salt marshes of the Wadden Sea. It’s a joyful symbol of Change for the Better
Oris returns to the beautiful Wadden Sea, a vital ecosystem, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the world’s largest unbroken intertidal flats system
The watch serves as a powerful symbol of Oris’s commitment to bringing Change for the Better and to the strength of our newly extended partnership with the CWSS. It’s based on the Aquis, our evergreen diver’s watch, and features a shimmering green dial inspired by the waters of the salt marshes that form a vital part of the Wadden Sea’s diverse ecosystem. These salt marshes are home to 2,300 species of flora and fauna and act as natural storage for CO2 that might otherwise be released into the environment.
Its 43.5 mm case is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres) and features a number of devices designed to ensure safe underwater timekeeping. It has a uni-directional rotating bezel for securely timing dives (the minutes scale appears on a grey tungsten bezel insert); a screw- down security crown with protection; and lumed hands and indexes for clear underwater legibility. It also comes with a blue rubber strap and a three-link stainless steel metal bracelet, both equipped with a safety clasp with an extension system so it can be worn over a wetsuit.
Inside it is a Swiss Made automatic mechanical movement that equips the watch with a small seconds at 9 o’clock (half of which is coated in lume to provide a diver with evidence the watch is running) and an unusual circular date function, indicated by a white dash that rotates through a 360-degree channel over a 31-day period.
The Dat Watt Limited Edition II captures the natural beauty of the Wadden Sea and the joyful spirit of the ongoing partnership between Oris and the CWSS. Only 2,009 pieces will be made, signifying the year the Wadden Sea was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
