Oris Source of Life Limited Edition

Water scarcity is one of the main social problems of our time. Despite growing awareness and the efforts of governments and non-profit organizations, the lack of drinkable water is still a problem in many parts of the world. It is estimated that half a billion people in the world face severe water scarcity all year round. In an effort to raise awareness about this important problem, Swiss watchmaker has released a limited edition watch that that celebrates water – the source of life. The new Oris Source of Life Limited Edition highlights the plight of the world’s water sources and opens a new chapter in the brand’s mission to bring change for the better.

I'm an Oris fan, but WTF.

I don't know how just "bringing attention" with a watch does dick. Donate the profits to water conservation efforts? Okay. Putting out a watch to remind people of the dangers of water scarcity? Utter bullshit - it's like walking around with my turgid Johnson hanging out of my fly to bring attention to animal cruelty; one thing doesn't tie in with the other in the least.

A watch that celebrates water. Get the fuck outta here with this one.

I guess this is one way to target affluent hipsters who sponge off their parents. This is a real demographic and the message of saving humanity by purchasing this watch should resonate.

Nice but the theme is utter BS.

That's the thing - that's a pretty sharp piece. Dumb, with frosting.

It takes 34,000 gallons of freshwater to make a ton of steel. Just saying.

It is, but it doesn't signal its virtue enough for today's buyers. Can't it come with a sign? Or a little card you can hand out to everyone?
