Oris Dat Watt Limited Edition II is a Commitment to Sustainability

Oris are continuing their commitment to the environment with their Dat Watt Limited Edition II....

Oris have been taking their commitment to conservation and sustainability seriously. As part of Oris’ Change for the Better initiative, the brand partnered with the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat (CWSS) in 2021 and created the first Dat Watt Limited Edition to commemorate this commitment. Since then, Oris have announced that they’ve reduced their global carbon emissions by 7.8% and have renewed their partnership with the CWSS for another two years. Once again, Oris are commemorating this event with the new Dat Watt Limited Edition II.

For those unaware, the Wadden Sea is found in the north of both the Netherlands and Germany as well as the western part of Denmark. It is the largest unbroken tidal flat system in the world stretching across 11,5000 square kilometres and is extremely delicate as well as incredibly unique. It’s home to over 10,000 species of flora and fauna. The locals call it “DatWatt”, and it unfortunately faces threats from human activities like overfishing, tourism, shipping, and general pollution. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is protected by the CWSS who unites all three nations in their conservation efforts.

One of the most recognisable aspects of the Wadden Sea are the emerald green Salt Marshes, which have inspired the colourway of the Dat Watt II. It takes the familiar 43.5mm case of the Aquis which comes equipped with all the diving features you’d expect; a screw-down crown, 300 metre water resistance, a uni-directional bezel in grey tungsten with a minutes scale, as well as Super-Luminova on the hands and indices for high legibility.

The usual Aquis line has a 6 o’clock date function, but the Dat Watt II has decided to go with a circular date window in the centre of the dial. This utilises a white dash that rotates through a 360-degree channel over the course of a month.

Inside you’ll find the Swiss Sellita-based Oris 743 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve. On the caseback you’ll see an engraving exclusive to the Dat Watt depicting the Wadden Sea shoreline as well as the individual watch’s unique serial number out of 2,009 (the year that UNESCO recognised Dat Watt as a World Heritage Site).

These will ship with both a stainless-steel bracelet and blue rubber strap that each feature a safety clasp and extension system allowing it to be worn over a wetsuit.

As mentioned earlier, these are limited to 2,009 pieces and will cost CHF 2,900 ($4,800 AUD) and are available now on Oris’ website.
