Oris - Maldives Limited Edition

After last year's Great Barrier Reef campaign to save the marine life, Oris will donate 20 Swiss francs (HK$193) to environmental charity Bluepeace to help protect endangered marine life in the Maldives for each unit sold of this limited-edition timepiece of 2,000 pieces. The dark blue ceramic inlay on the revolving top ring comes with an engraved 60-minute scale handy for precision timing, while the indices and hands in dark orange superluminova enhance readability under water. Water resistant to 300 metres, this diver's watch (HK$18,500) in titanium features a Manta ray logo on the case back.

This newcomer is water resistant up to 1,000 metres.

Two versions: polished and satin-brushed titanium (HK$86,800) with markers in luminescent orange, and blackened titanium case with red gold bezel (HK$122,500) featuring black markers.

To enhance its structural strength and resistance to corrosive action, the 47mm case is in brushed bronze. Housing a P.9000 calibre manufactured in-house, it's water resistant to 300 metres has and a three-day power reserve. This timepiece (HK$81,500) stands out for its patented bridge protecting the winding crown and lever.
