Norwalk, CT (February 13, 2020) – Oris Watches USA, announced that their Lake Baikal Limited Edition watch will be on public display at the 2020 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show, presented by West Marine February 13 – 17, 2020.

Oris’ latest limited edition is based on the popular Aquis divers watch and will be available for viewing in the Oris Airstream located in the Show Merchandise Tent.  Only 1,999 pieces will be made, marking the year Russia passed the Baikal Law.


As a new decade begins, the vital role of water has never been more apparent. At Oris, they believe we have a shared duty to behave responsibly and to look after our world and our climate. They are on a mission to bring “Change for the Better”, working with non-profit organizations and conservation agencies all over the world, with an emphasis on water, the oceans and the life they contain.

With that in mind, Oris announced the Oris Lake Baikal Limited Edition, based on the Oris Aquis divers watch and made in partnership with the Lake Baikal Foundation. Sales of the watch will help raise funds in support of “Point No. 1”, a Lake Baikal conservation project run by the Scientific Research Institute of Biology at Irkutsk State University which is also the longest-running and most detailed environmental water monitoring project in scientific history.

“We believe passionately in water conservation now and for future generations,” said Rolf Studer, Oris Co-CEO. “Every year we seek out pioneering organizations, who share these values and work to protect the world’s water. We’re proud to be working with the Lake Baikal Foundation as it continues its vital research and raises awareness of pollution and the urgent need for clean water.”

For over 115 years, Oris has been making purely mechanical watches in Hölstein, Switzerland.  Comprised of four worlds: Diving, Aviation, Motor Sport and Culture, Oris watches are made for everyday wear and offer the luxury of common sense. That means Oris provides the best possible watch for the money, using useful complications and functional designs. Staying true to a rich heritage, Oris is one of the few Swiss watch companies to remain independently owned and operated.

A big part of Oris’ story is how they behave and how they define their mission. Because of their independence, Oris has the freedom to follow its own path - #GoYourOwnWay. It is their mission to behave more responsibly. The world faces numerous threats and Oris is focused on bringing change for the better, which means making choices that are ecologically, socially, ad financially responsible. This is at the heart of the Oris philosophy.

Beyond ocean conservation and recycled plastic partnerships, Oris’ mission remains unchanged – to produce inventive, high-functioning Swiss Made watches that serve a real purpose and at prices that make sense.
