Oris Divers Kittiwake Limited Edition

To commemorate the deliberate sinking of the USS Kittiwake in Grand Cayman, Oris proudly presents the Kittiwake Limited Edition. Inspiring a fresh generation of diving enthusiasts, the watch is designed with the intention of offering visitors to the site a professional and trusted timepiece.
 
Built in 1944, USS Kittiwake served for 54 years in many important missions around the world. This included the recovery of the black box recorder from the doomed Challenger spaceship in 1986. On January 5th, 2011, the Cayman Government oversaw the deliberate sinking of the Kittiwake to form a new artificial reef. Limited to only 500 pieces, for every Oris watch manufactured there will be a donation given to the Kittiwake artificial reef project. The mechanical room of the sunken ship is dedicated to this partnership with the Oris plaque installed there. Available in a ProDiver titanium case with “Rotation Safety System”, the back of this unique watch features the Kittiwake logo, together with the “diver down” warning flag on the dial, marking the association with the historic ship and its new role as a Mecca for diving enthusiasts. The black dial displays wave printing, and the indexes of the timepiece are filled with Superluminova.
 
The set includes a rubber strap, with an easy adjustable titanium buckle, perfect for wearing over a wetsuit. Water resistant to 100bar (1000m) the Oris Kittiwake Limited Edition is something to savour from an adventure to the Kittiwake reef in Grand Cayman.
