    Oris, true to their word on environmental conservation?

    Oris is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands with their sharp designs and environmental conservation mindset (VERY important to me as a man in his early 20s. I used to only buy Rolexes, Omegas, Breitlings, Tudors for Swiss brands, but now Oris has my interest peaked. I am looking to buy a new Oris Clean Ocean Aquis and I’m wondering if Oris actually donates a significant portion of the organizations? Does anyone know what else they do for these organizations?

    I have a spot for the new 50th Apollo 11 Omega Speedmaster, but frankly this Oris excites me a lot more now if they really do support the ocean cleanup groups.

    I imagine that they do - being fraudulent about that would come to the surface pretty quickly. As to how much? Who knows. I assumed, when I bought by Doxa Project Aware (which is committed to the same general purpose), that at a minimum the price difference between the PA Special Edition, and the regular Doxa 1000 would be the amount of the donation. In any case, I was happy to support the company and the cause - just like I would here - and didn't have any concerns about the veracity of it all.

    Curious to know why you had to mention your age? And if you believe this marketing rubbish then you didn’t have to mention your age - millennials are generally gullible

    I'm a 51 year old Gen Xer that also makes purchases based on track records of companies regarding both environment and child labor. It's not a "social statement" necessarily it just makes us feel good that we're not as much a part of the problem as we could be. In other words, don't complain about it if you aren't doing your part to fix it. Having said that, both Germany and Switzerland are at the top of the environmentally conscious countries list so you can't really go wrong with any of the watches most of us are interested in.

    Buy the watch if you like the blue color, not because of the virtuous image they are trying to sell you. If anything, they are only donating the $20 or whatever portion of your purchase so they can write it off of their corporate tax bill, not to make an actual difference.

    Yonger age = more years still to live = more plastic particles from the oceans you'll digest in your lifetime. Simple. A the devil may care mentality when it comes to the vast ecological problems of our oceans is a kick in the teeth of the younger generation.

    Here is my Alpina Alpiner "Race for Water" limited edition chrono. With each piece, a 50 CHF donation went to the Race for Water Foundation, and I'm proud to wear it.
