31.08.2006 - Oris Watch Honours King of Thailand
Thailand is currently commemorating King Bhumibol’s 60-year reign. To mark this occasion the Swiss watch manufacturer Oris, which is well established in Thailand, is launching a special limited edition of 999 High-Mech watches, individually numbered and only available in Thailand.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to King Bhumibol’s charitable organisations. To honour his majesty’s coronation in 1946 Oris will be presenting a special model made in titanium to the King.
The edition consists of a stainless-steel watch in tonneau form, sporting the emblem for the celebrations on the dial together with the engraving ‘The Sixtieth Anniversary Celebrations of His Majesty’s Accession to the Throne’. The watch also features Thai numerals for the hour and date display. Beside the number on the case back the mechanical movement with the red Oris rotor is clearly visible. What’s more, this majestic special edition comes in a fine luxury box.
