New York Harbor Limited Edition

Oris’s new limited-edition backs Billion Oyster Project, a wonderfully ambitious non-profit aiming to restore one billion oysters to New York Harbor.

Nations, big corporates, non-profits, individuals living normal lives – the responsibility for reversing climate change falls on all of us, no matter where we are or how much impact we think we can make. Change for the Better, Oris’s continuing mission, will only come if we collaborate. At Oris, our focus has fallen on the world’s water, the source of life. We’re passionate about cleaning, restoring and protecting water. We’ve brought stories and watches to life around a water monitoring station on Lake Baikal, coral restoration outplanting programmes in Australia and Florida, and initiatives ridding our oceans of plastic.

We’ve also been cleaning up our own act. In 2021, Climate Partner independently certified us as a climate neutral company. We’ve since released our first sustainability report, a ‘square one’ that details our carbon footprint, how we’re offsetting it, and how we’re going to reduce it by 10 per cent a year for the next three years. Today, sustainability and Change for the Better are a core attitude at Oris. They impact every product we release, every decision we make – everything we do.

This summer, our mission continues in collaboration with Billion Oyster Project, a non-profit restoring New York Harbor, once one of the world’s most polluted waterways.

To support the project’s pioneering work, we’re releasing the New York Harbor Limited Edition, a 2,000-piece limited edition based on our high-performance Aquis diver’s watch. Its signature feature is its green motherof-pearl dial, inspired by the colour of the famous harbor’s water, and by oyster shell. It’s a powerful symbol of an incredible story.
