Oris Glory launches the fourth edition of the new CarlosCoste diving limit watch, a high-performance watch suitable for free diving. This sport requires divers to hold their breath for several minutes underwater, and above all, they have the courage to push the limits.
This is also the driving force for Oris image ambassador Carlos Costa. In 2003, he became the first person to dive freely to break the 100-meter barrier; in 2010, he swam 150 meters in an underwater cave in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, breaking the Guinness World Record. Surprisingly, Carlos can hold a breath for 7 and a half minutes. In Venezuela, he is known as the ‘born aquaman.’
The best way to test the performance of a diving watch is to perform an underwater test, which is why Oris has been working closely with CarlosCoste since 2006. Before Carlos made his most recent record-breaking attempt in 2015, Oris gloriously launched the fourth edition of the CarlosCoste Dive Limit Watch.
The multi-piece case of the fourth edition of the OrisCarlosCoste Dive Limited Edition is made of strong but lightweight titanium, with a watch diameter of 46 mm. In the dark world underwater, readability is very important. To this end, Oris specially places a minute scale on the top ring of a black ceramic watch that rotates in one direction, embedded with white fluorescent material, so that the diver can see the remaining diving time at a glance. The scale and hands on the black dial are embedded with orange fluorescent material. At the same time, the inside of the double-sided arched sapphire glass is coated with anti-reflective coating to minimize glare. The watch is water-resistant to 500 meters.
Another ingenious design is the dark orange dot on the manual helium exhaust valve at 3 o’clock, which is designed to quickly distinguish the time and date setting crown at 2 o’clock. The fully automatic movement in the case not only provides power for the operation of the watch, but also for the calendar display at 3 o’clock and the operation of the small seconds hand between 7 and 9 o’clock.
The models are available in black rubber straps and titanium straps, all of which are equipped with Oris’s original quick-adjust sliding skid folding buckle.
The back cover of the fourth edition of the OrisCarlosCoste diving limit watch is engraved with Carlos’s unique symbol. It is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. This is another true manifestation of the Oris brand’s purpose ‘realwatchesforrealpeople’.
