Continuing its efforts in ocean conservation, Swiss luxury watchmaker Oris has crafted the brand’s very first solid gold timepiece in celebration of the 30,000 planted corals in partnership with the Coral Restoration Foundation in Florida.

Dubbed the Carysfort Reef Limited Edition, the watch is based on the Oris Aquis model and boasts a 43.5mm case constructed out of solid 18k yellow gold. Powered by the inhouse Oris 798, base SW 330-1 movement, the watch carries a GMT function via a fourth hand and a 24-hour dual-tone ceramic bezel, sitting comfortably around a blue sunburst dial. A 24-hour scale can also be found on the dial itself, as well as a date indicator at 3 o’clock. Of course, as a piece to celebrate the sea, the watch itself is also water resistant up to 300 meters, and can hold a power reserve of up to 42 hours. As a finishing touch, a Carysfort Reef motif can be found engraved on the caseback, coupled with a deep blue leather strap to complete the look.

For those interested, the Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition Aquis will be available sometime this April, limited to only 50 pieces, with a retail price of CHF 17,900, or roughly $18,338 USD. Head over to Oris’ site to learn more.

Elsewhere in watches, MAD Paris has crafted three blacked-out Patek Philippe Nautilus watches.
