Oris Aquis Clipperton Limited Edition Ocean Dial Diving Replica Watches UK

By most accounts, Clipperton Island is the most remote coral atoll in the world. Located in the Pacific Ocean, west of South America, the nearest landmass is over 900 kilometers away. To many, it is an unimportant ring of guano-covered rock in the middle of nowhere. But to scientists, it’s a bellwether of human impact on ocean levels and aquatic life, and a case study for the effects of pollution and overfishing. Over its history, Clipperton has been the temporary home to various small human populations, a French military outpost, a Cousteau expedition, and a lot of birds and colorful crabs. And its a catchment for a lot of plastic garbage.

This past spring, an expedition known as Big Migrations 2, led by two Quebecois marine biologists, set out from the southern tip of Mexico, motoring by boat, to visit Clipperton. The team had the ambitious agenda of carrying out a number of scientific studies, both on land, and in the waters surrounding the island. The expedition had the primary goal of documenting the migration patterns of pelagic species in order to support the establishment of a protected marine area to protect these species from overfishing. My colleague James Stacey was lucky enough to tag along for the 16-day expedition at the invitation of Oris replica Watches Company. During their time there, they cataloged the trash on the island, removed long-line filament from the surrounding reefs, tagged sharks, and dodged aggressive moray eels. Oris was a primary sponsor of the expedition, and this week, at a 2018 preview event in Beaver Creek, Colorado, the brand introduced a limited edition watch celebrating Clipperton Island and commemorating the expedition.

The Clipperton Limited Edition is based on the popular Aquis family of Oris dive fake watches. It has a 43.5mm stainless steel case rated to 30 bar of water pressure (roughly 300 meters) with a rotating ceramic timing ring bezel. The watch has the familiar Oris cues: prominent crown guards, bright, SuperLuminova-swathed hands and markers, and narrow lugs that take either a proprietary rubber strap or a steel bracelet with foldover pushbutton clasp. The self-winding movement inside comes courtesy of Sellita, decorated by Oris, and called the caliber 733.

Two features separate the Clipperton Limited Edition from the standard Aquis diver: the dial and the caseback. Up front, the dial has a gradient blue color treatment that catches light to emulate the waters around Clipperton, which drop off around the atoll to 60 meters just offshore. And while I’ve seen gradient blue dials before, this one does seem to bear the most striking resemblance to the way sunlight plays on deep water when you move the watch around. Turning the watch over reveals the engraved caseback with a likeness of Clipperton Island, the latitude/longitude coordinates, and some commemorative text.

The Oris Clipperton Limited Edition copy watches UK come packaged in a box made of 30% algae, a sustainable, natural material that has a nice oceanic tie-in with this special diver’s watch. In speaking with Oris CEO Rolf Studer in Colorado, I learned that Oris is starting to look at the impact of packaging materials for its products and considering other options. This one is just the beginning.

There will be 2,000 Clipperton Limited Editions produced. The watch is priced at $2,000 fitted with the rubber strap and $2,200 on the steel bracelet. The watch will be available starting in February. As for visiting Clipperton Island, it is off-limits except by special permission from the French government, so you might have to be content with the watch.

UK Replica Watches Oris Artelier Calibre 113

In the world of horology, the term “in-house” is generally associated with high-end luxury timepieces which are often exorbitantly priced, and this makes owning one a distant dream for many watch aficionados out there. But in recent times, a few brands including replica Oris seem to have acknowledged the situation and aimed to bridge this gap by producing watches like the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 with in-house movements at relatively affordable prices.

Oris has been in the business of making timepieces since 1904, and the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 watch showcases the company’s continued growth in the field of research and technical innovation. It was in 2014 that Oris released their first modern in-house movement, the Calibre 110, which we went hands-on with here, and since then, the brand has been adding more functionality to this base calibre every year leading to the creation of their newest and fourth version, the Calibre 113.

The Calibre 113 is a hand-wound movement which operates at a frequency of 3Hz, and like the three calibers before it, this one also features a small seconds at 9 o’clock along with the massive 10-day power reserve, which I feel is a remarkable feat as it uses only a single barrel to do so. Additionally, the Calibre 113 also offers a complete calendar setup including the day, date, week, and month of the year. The Calibre 113 movement on the cheap fake Oris Artelier Carlibre 113 can be admired in all its glory through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back. Although the movement is devoid of fancy decoration and has more of an industrial look, I like it for the fact that it holds true to the Oris philosophy, and that being “real watches for real people.”

Just reading the number of complications the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 watch features had me thinking that this is going to be one difficult dial to read, but having a look at the release photographs, I must say that Oris have done an admirable job of keeping the dial balanced and legible. The dial on the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 is cleverly laid out and shares its general design aesthetics – such as the finely applied hour markers, applied Arabic numerals at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, the subsidiary seconds dial at 9, and the power reserve indicator at 3 – with the previously released Oris Artelier Calibre 112 watch and the luxury copy Oris Big Crown Pro Pilot 111 watches.

But what really sets the dial of the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 apart and gives the watch a distinctive look is the way Oris have implemented the calendar complications on this timepiece. To execute the calendar complications, the folks at Oris have made good use of the real estate available on the dial by pulling the hour indices slightly inwards, eventually freeing space to display the month and week of the year in the outer periphery of the dial. And to read these details, Oris has made use of a red-tipped pointer hand which simultaneously indicates the current month and week (hence Oris using the term “business calendar”) of the year. The date is shown via a neatly cut date window within the sub-seconds dial at 9 o’clock, and finally, to complete the calendar setup, the day of the week is displayed through a thoughtfully placed window just below the power reserve text. All the functions the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 offers are controlled via the single crown.

At 43mm, the Oris Artelier Calibre 113 is a somewhat large timepiece, especially for a more dress-oriented watch, but looking at the set of complications it offers, I feel it is aptly sized. The brand’s materials do not mention water-resistance, but we expect it to be in line with previous similar watches, at 30m. The Oris Artelier Calibre 113 will be officially launched at Baselworld 2017, and will be available to purchase in a couple of strap and dial options. One can either opt for the anthracite dial with a dark brown Louisiana crocodile leather strap or an opaline silver dial with a gray, black, or dark brown leather strap. Both the versions will also be optionally available on a steel bracelet. The UK replica Oris Artelier Calibre 113 watch will retail at a price of CHF 5,900.
