ORIS Honor launches the fourth edition of the new Carlos Coste diving limit watch, a high-performance watch suitable for free diving. This sport requires divers to hold their breath for several minutes underwater, and above all, they have the courage to push the limits. This is what drives the image ambassador of Carlos Coste, ORIS. In 2003, he became the first person to dive freely to break the 100-meter barrier; in 2010, he swam 150 meters in an underwater cave in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, breaking the Guinness World Record. Surprisingly, Carlos can hold a breath for 7 and a half minutes. In Venezuela, he is known as the ‘born aquaman.’

The best way to test the performance of a diving watch is to perform an underwater test, which is why ORIS has been working closely with Carlos Coste since 2006. Before Carlos made his most recent record-breaking attempt in 2015, ORIS Glory launched the fourth edition of the Carlos Coste Diving Limited Watch. The multi-piece case of the fourth edition of the ORIS Carlos Coste Diver’s Limited Edition is made of strong but lightweight titanium. The watch is 46 mm in diameter. In the dark world underwater, readability is very important. To this end, ORIS specifically places a minute scale on the top ring of a black ceramic watch that rotates in one direction, and embeds white fluorescent material so that divers can see the remaining diving time at a glance. The scale and hands on the black dial are embedded with orange fluorescent material. At the same time, the inside of the double-sided arched sapphire glass is coated with anti-reflective coating to minimize glare. The watch is water-resistant to 500 meters.

ORIS Carlos Coste Diving Limited Edition Fourth Edition, a high-performance diving watch, limited to 2000 pieces worldwide
The fourth edition of the ORIS Carlos Coste Diving Limited Edition is available with a black rubber strap and a titanium strap, both of which are equipped with ORIS’s original quick-adjust sliding skid folding buckle.
Another ingenious design is the dark orange dot on the manual helium exhaust valve at 3 o’clock, which is designed to quickly distinguish the time and date setting crown at 2 o’clock. The fully automatic movement in the case not only provides power for the operation of the watch, but also for the calendar display at 3 o’clock and the operation of the small seconds hand between 7 and 9 o’clock. The back cover of the fourth edition of the ORIS Carlos Coste diving limit watch is engraved with Carlos’s unique symbol, and it is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. This is another true manifestation of ORIS brand’s purpose ‘real watches for real people’.
