Ocean plastic statistics make for difficult reading. For example, scientists believe the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), an area of plastic waste drifting between Hawaii and California, is four and-a-half times the size of Germany. That figure was calculated by the environmental engineering organization The Ocean Cleanup, which also estimates that 46 per cent of the GPGP is made up of fishing nets that have been lost or discarded. This is particularly serious because while they may no longer be in use, these ‘ghost’ fishing nets still catch and kill marine life as they hover in the water.

Experts estimate that up to a million tons of fishing nets enter the oceans every year, and that a ghost net will keep fishing for 400-600 years. It’s only recently that awareness of ghost nets has begun to rise, thanks to the vision and efforts of people like Benjamin Wenke and Madeleine von Hohenthal, founders of our new partner, the social enterprise Bracenet.


Today, we’re very proud to introduce the Oris X Bracenet, a special-edition version of the Aquis Date diver’s watch with a spectacular dial made of recycled ghost and end-of-life nets.


Making these kaleidoscopic dials involves taking small green, blue and white clippings from ghost nets and gently warming them until they melt into the raw material.
