In the Spanish Canary Islands meanwhile, Oris is backing the scholarships of three university students at the Faculty of Marine Sciences at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) to support their research of El Hierro’s submarine volcanic activity. The sombre watch, named after the volcano, is essentially a DLC-coated, limited edition of the Oris Aquis. The 43 mm dive watch is again powered by an automatic movement based on a Sellita SW 200-1, but this time, the date window is placed at 6 o’clock. It will be limited to 2,000 pieces, is available from May, and will be priced CHF 1,950.
