Oris Wings Around the World II Limited Edition
Polly Vacher was born in Oxfordshire, England in 1944. She worked as a physiotherapist, then a music teacher, before becoming involved in fundraising for the disabled. In 1997, just three years after achieving her private pilot’s licence, she flew solo across the North Atlantic in her single engine Piper Dakota. In 2001 she made a solo circumnavigation of the globe. Oris was proud to be a principal sponsor of her 2003 flight, which made her the first woman to circumnavigate the globe via both the North and South Poles.
The Wings Around the World II watch, which commemorated her flight, is limited to 2000 units. A portion of the profits has been donated to the Flying Scholarships for the Disabled charity.
