Sharks will go extinct in another 40 years! Over the past 50 years, marine conservation experts have noticed a serious decline in shark populations worldwide and have made this worrying prediction.
The new Oris Hammerhead limited edition is an extension of the second-generation Oris Aquis series, with a water resistance of 50 bar (500 meters)
In the 1960s, Oris built the first dive watch and continued to maintain a close relationship with marine issues. Today, brands have a clearer mission to prevent more endangered species.
With this in mind, Oris launched the Hammerhead Limited Watch, which will help the non-profit organization Pelagios Kakunjá to help raise funds for the shark conservation program, with Oris brand ambassador and professional diver Jérôme Delafosse all involved in the program. The group studies marine predators at the top of the food chain, their movements and migration pathways. The latest plan is to learn more about the migratory routes of the endangered Luke hammerhead shark (sphyrna lewini) in the Eastern Pacific. According to the International Conservation Union, the global number of hammerhead sharks has fallen by 90% in the past 30 years.
The stainless steel case back of the Oris Hammerhead Limited Watch is decorated with hammerhead sharks and limited numbers. Limited to 2,000 pieces worldwide
Scientists in this project will use the MiniPAT satellite marker funded by Oris to mark sharks. Each marker will track the shark for six to nine months, then automatically release and float back to the ground on a set date, sending the data they collect to the satellite. The data will help scientists better understand sharks in order to advise government agencies on fishing activities. Replenishing fish is one of the biggest threats to sharks, as sharks can become entangled in fishing nets during fishing operations.

Oris Hammerhead limited watch design, based on this year’s modified Aquis series. Maintaining the spirit and DNA of Aquis brings the same high-performance but more stylish silhouette. Lighter than its predecessor, the unidirectional rotating bezel in black ceramic is water-resistant to 50 bar (500 meters).
Globally limited to 2,000, the Oris Hammerhead limited watch reflects the colors of the ocean, with a blue central seconds hand and a blue minute scale around the outer edge of its gray dial. The back of the case is embellished with a Lucio Hammerhead shark and a limited number.

Oris President Ulrich W. Herzog said: ‘This watch is a clear reminder of the threat to shark populations in the world and Oris’ clear commitment to conserving endangered species.’ We are pleased to support the Pelagios Kakunjá organization and work with Ambassador Oris Jérôme Delafosse collaborates and looks forward to seeing the results of the plan. ‘
‘The number of sharks in the world has continued to drop, and what must we do?’ Said Jérôme Delafosse, who has continuously tracked sharks and dolphins for the past 20 years. ‘Sharks have a vital role not only in the ocean but also in the overall ecosystem, and we must do everything we can to ensure their future. Humans have a responsibility to protect them, and I am very happy to work with Oris and Pelagios Kakunjá in this great project . ‘
