Introducing Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition With The Coral Restoration Foundation
Oris, which is on a mission to bring Change for the Better, supports a number of nonprofits working to secure the future of our oceans. This year, Oris is partnering with the Coral Restoration Foundation, a Florida-based organization that has become the world’s leading expert on coral restoration.
In partnership with the organization, Oris released the Craysfort Reef Limited Edition in both stainless steel and rubber strap-limited to 2,000 pieces.
Based in Florida, the foundation has developed restoration methods that have been adopted by enterprises around the world, including the Reef Restoration Foundation, which Oris partnered with last year for the Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III. Oris began working with Coral Restoration Foundation in 2014 as part of its mission to bring Change for the Better. That year, the organisation’s founder, Ken Nedimyer, was recognised as Oris’s Sea Hero of the Year and given a grant towards the foundation’s work.
The first watch collaboration followed in 2017 and proved to be a huge success in raising funds and awareness for the foundation. Oris is thrilled to be able to step up its support again for the organisation’s vital work with the launch of the Carysfort Reef Limited Edition.
The name Carysfort is taken from the iconic Carysfort Reef, a coral reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary near Key Largo, Florida. Carysfort is part of the Florida Reef Tract, which is the third largest barrier reef in the world and the only barrier reef in the USA. In the 1950s and 1960s, it was the epicentre of the early recreational dive industry.
