ORIS have released a Limited Edition DIVER to commemorate the deliberate sinking of the USS Kittiwake in Grand Cayman, which done in order to create an artificial reef.

Priced at $3500, the watch is available at The Mansion in Camana Bay.

The Kittiwake DIVER measures 49mm and has a water-resistance of 100 bar or 1000m. It is a Limited Edition of just 500 pieces, and for every one manufactured, Oris will make a donation to the Kittiwake artificial reef project.

The sunken ship’s mechanical room has been dedicated to the partnership with Oris and in recognition of this a plaque has been installed there. The back of the Oris Kittiwake Limited Edition dive watch shows the logo of the Kittiwake artificial reef project with USS Kittiwake.

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.
