    New Oris Dive Watches with Beautiful Blue Dials

    Oris released two dive watches with gorgeous blue dials, both of which are produced in partnership with ocean conservation organizations.

    The first of these is the Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III, my favorite of the two.



    This great looking Oris is 43.5mm is created as a collaboration with the Reef Restoration Foundation, and its blue color is obviously reminiscent of the water that surrounds these reefs. 2,000 will be made, and this one is expected to cost $2,550.



    The second of these watches is the slightly smaller 39.55 Clean Ocean, also limited to 2,000 pieces. This watch is a collaboration with the Pacific Garbage Screening, an organization that develops plastic recovery technology to prevent ocean pollution. Interestingly, some of this recycled plastic forms the case back of the watch, which comes off looking a bit like abstract art.



    This one is expected to cost $2,300. Both should be arriving this June.

    Update: Some early photos from Baselworld 2019. Many more to come.

    Will the dial colour be this vibrant in real life? I fear not.

    The Source Of Life LE looks great in official shots/on the Oris website but, personally, I was left a little deflated after seeing one in the metal. Think they over do the colour saturation for official pics.

    I'd be interested in seeing those photos too. I had a blue Aquis up until recently. It was a very nice dial but appeared black in all but the brightest of light.
    I'm almost hoping its disappointing that way I won't be tempted.

    These blue/green watches are called Glacier Blue by other brands.

    The Clean Ocean has the Clipperton dial with a different bezel. I might be in the minority, but I think I prefer the Clipperton's black bezel to offset the radiant blue.

    I disagree though don't have first hand about the Source of Life--of the ones that I do know about, I think Oris is one of the few companies that really do blue dials well, and rather the fear for the negative, hope for the positive--that in fact the new watches here live up to their past achievements. Would love to see a "refined" (non-diver, smooth bezel) version as well, as they sometimes do with their divers.
