This year, Oris is partnering with the pioneering Seoul KFEM, part of the Korean Federation for Environmental Movements, by issuing the Oris Hangang Limited Edition, a limited edition watch that highlights the plight of the Hangang River in South Korea.
The Hangang is South Korea’s second longest but most important river because it supplies water to the 10 million inhabitants of the country’s capital, Seoul. But years of neglect have left it dirty, polluted and in desperate need of restoration. As part of the new partnership, Oris will be supporting a series of clean-up days Seoul KFEM has scheduled for later this year. Sales of the 2,000-piece limited edition watch will help fund the Hangang clean-up project.
