Oris Aquis Dat Watt Limited Edition II

Over the past few years, Oris has been actively pursuing a more sustainable path in the realm of watchmaking. Their commitment extends beyond just reducing their own carbon footprint; it also involves collaborating with carefully selected organizations dedicated to environmental causes like beach cleanup, wildlife preservation, and the protection of aquatic ecosystems.
This sustainability drive finds its expression primarily through the creation of limited edition watches, with a particular emphasis on the enduringly popular Aquis collection, renowned for its dive watches. In 2021, Oris unveiled the Dat Watt special edition watch in partnership with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat. Now, as we fast-forward two years, Oris returns to the Wadden Sea region, drawing inspiration from its salt marshes for the creation of the Dat Watt Edition II timepiece.The Wadden Sea is situated along the northern coasts of the Netherlands and Germany, as well as the western portion of Denmark. It stands as the world's largest continuous tidal flat system, a remarkably fragile yet profoundly significant ecological region teeming with a multitude of species, encompassing fish, birds, insects, plants, and more. Its exceptional nature arises from its unique transformation from salt marshes to marine and brackish habitats, a phenomenon unparalleled anywhere else globally. Spanning an expansive 11,500 square kilometers, the Wadden Sea received UNESCO's World Heritage Site designation in 2009, a recognition aimed at safeguarding and preserving this exceptional natural wonder. Oris' second collaboration with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat aims to heighten awareness of this vital ecological marvel, with a portion of the proceeds dedicated to various conservation programs aimed at its protection.
The 43.5mm multi-piece case is made of stainless-steel with an overall brushed finish, mostly visible on the wide casebands. Mounted to the case is a unidirectional rotating bezel with a brushed gray scratch-proof ceramic insert. It has been engraved with a 60-minute scale to assist divers with immersion times, which can be easily used for other useful countdowns.On the flip-side is a solid steel caseback embossed with a special “Dat Watt” decoration. It is a geographical image of the Wadden Sea and the coastal regions of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, plus a flock of birds flying overhead for an extra touch of natural fauna. It also includes an engraving with each limited edition's unique number.It comes equipped with a stainless-steel screw-in crown embossed by the Oris logo, protected by screwed on crown guards. Topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 300 meters (984 feet). Time is exhibited on a green dial with stainless-steel applied hour index markers, followed by a ring of smaller white printed minute indices circling around the flange. This hue was clearly inspired by the salt marshes of the Wadden Sea.As we look towards the center there are four cutouts forming a circle, which reveal a gray-tinted date disc underneath with a white pointer indicating the correct date on the printed scale. This is an interesting way of providing a date without using the more conventional framed date window. Plus inside the circle is a very discreet small-seconds, aligned near the 9 o’clock spot.The thick uneven central stainless-steel hands, the hour index markers, the small-seconds hand, and a dot on the rotating bezel, have all been fitted with a luminescent coating for an enhanced legibility.
