Introducing the new Environmentally conscious Aquis made with an Upcycled Fishing net dial in 41.5mm and 36.5mm. Back in 2015, Bracenet founders Benjamin Wenke and Madeleine von Hohenthal were diving in Tanzania when they became aware of the tragedy of "ghost nets," the lost, abandoned, or discarded fishing nets that float for centuries through the ocean and leave a terrible impact on ocean life in their wake. They began making bracelets out of upcycled ghost nets but now make a full catalogue of products that transform this potentially life-threatening waste product into something beautiful.
In this case, these waste nets are used to make dials. They're a kaleidoscope born out of small green, blue, and white offcuts, gently warmed and melted, then cooled and hardened into a thin sheet of material. That sheet is then cut to size, planed, and sanded down to 0.3mm thick with no additives, fillers, or glues used in the process. Due to the changing materials used in the process, each dial is unique.
The watch, which is available with either a 41.5 mm or 36.5 mm case, is very special. The upcycling process produces random patterns, meaning no two dials will be the same. Essentially, each piece is unique. Oris not limiting production in either size, and plan on making them for as long as there’s demand. The hope is that Oris collectors will choose Aquis Date Upcycle and join us in making a daily commitment to reducing the world’s ocean plastic crisis.
Oris have created the perfect wrist companion for any ocean explorer with this striking and high functioning Aquis Upcycle watch. With the use of intensive research and collaborative thinking, this Oris Aquis Date watch still boasts exceptional functionality without losing out on style. Cased within the impressive 41.5mm stainless steel case and top ring is the Oris 733 automatic winding movement which can be watched hard at work through the mineral glass case back where the famous red Oris rotor twirls around with every movement of the wrist.
This men’s Oris Aquis watch continues to impress with an array of features enhancing its use for shallow diving such as a 300 metre water resistant case, stainless steel screw in security crown, uni-directional bezel with marker and a 38 hour power reserve. Housed beneath the domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment is a a unique multi-coloured dial set with large hour and minute hands decorated in glow in the dark Superluminova for easy legibility underwater and a handy date window at 6 o clock. To complete the Oris divers watch, a sophisticated stainless steel bracelet is added alongside a folding buckle with diving extension.
What we like: The legendary Aquis now with the most unique dial. Much has been written about the capabilities of the Aquis so we will just say....it looks stunning AND does good.
