The thing about dive watches is that you need to keep Earth’s oceans healthy in order to properly utilize them to their fullest potential. It is this conservationist mindset that drove Oris to pair up with famed Swiss swim legend Ernst Bromeis and introduce their new awareness-raising Aquis Date Relief dive watch to the masses.

As we’ve come to expect from Oris, this waterborne precision timepiece is exceptionally well-built — boasting an automatic 26-jewel winding movement with a 38-hour power reserve, a 43.5mm stainless steel case with a screw-down crown, and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Of course, while the construction is exceedingly important, it’s the combination of a gray dial with a date window and matching minimalist dive timer bezel — meant to mimic the appearance of stormy seas — that first catches the eye. If you want to get your hands on the watch to be worn by Bromeis during his ‘Blue Miracle’ campaign swim across Lake Baikal, the Oris Aquis Date Relief dive watch can be yours now starting at $1,800.

Purchase: $1,800+
