ORIS – Aquis El Hierro Limited Edition
















ORIS Aquis El Hierro Limited Edition NEW

Oris’s deep commitment
The independent Swiss watchmaker’s latest diver’s watch is inspired by a submarine volcano

Oris’ latest diver’s watch is inspired by a submarine volcano located off the coast of El Hierro, the most south-western of the Spanish-owned Canary Islands.

In October 2011, strange activity was observed off the coast of El Hierro, the most south-western of the Spanish-owned Canary Islands. Patches of pale-coloured water began appearing, dead fish floated on the ocean surface, and locals noted a strong smell of sulphur in the air. It turned out that these were the first signs of a submarine volcanic eruption, some 1,000 metres below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. The eruption continued until March the following year, leaving the cone of the volcano just 86 metres below the water’s surface.

The independent Swiss watchmaker Oris has partnered with the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) to support three student scholarships at the Faculty of Marine Sciences at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC). The travel scholarships will be open to those studying for a Master’s degree in oceanography and will include internships which will be framed to the Master thesis project in relation to the El Hierro volcano. Despite being a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2000, the volcanic El Hierro is the least studied of the Canary Islands.

Funds for Oris’s contribution to the scholarship will be raised through sales of the Oris El Hierro Limited Edition watch, a black DLC-coated version of the Oris Aquis. The back of the watch will feature an engraving of the volcano and its coordinates. The new El Hierro Limited Edition watch mimics the volcanic rock with its black and grey colour scheme, while the red used on the bezel minutes scale, dial and central seconds hand represent molten lava.

The watch is powered by an automatic movement and has all the features common to Oris’s collection of Aquis diver’s watches, including a unidirectional rotating bezel with a ceramic inlay; a crown protection device; water-resistance to 30 bar/300m, and a black rubber strap with the Oris-developed safety anchor and quick-adjust sliding-sledge folding clasp.
