At Oris, we’re fortunate to have collaborated with some of the world’s most inspiring and ambitious agencies for change. Some have taken us under the water; others into the sky. Some have kept us on dry land. But always, the ambition is to fulfil our mission: to bring Change for the Better.

This summer, we’re enormously proud to announce a new collaboration with Wings of Hope, a US-based aeronautical humanitarian organisation founded 60 years ago. Twice nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, Wings of Hope has used the power of aviation to bring medical support to remote and vulnerable communities in more than 50 countries. In 2021, more than 65,000 people used the organisation’s programmes and services.

Wings of Hope relies heavily on donors and volunteers. Last year, 350 volunteers gave their time. Fuel costs are covered by donations. Sometimes, donations come in the form of aircraft, and if these can’t be used at one of Wings of Hope’s 11 field bases, they’re sold to fund the mission. This way, 86 cents of every dollar given to the organisation goes directly into funding its programmes.

The Oris Wings of Hope Limited Edition watches will support its mission, too. We’re making two models, both based on our signature Big Crown pilot’s watch, and both powered by Calibre 401, one of our high-performance five-day automatics. One is in 40 mm of steel and limited to 1,000 pieces; the other is in 38 mm of solid 18-carat yellow gold and limited to 100 pieces. Both come on Cervo Volante sustainable deer leather straps. It’s an exciting collaboration – because together we can bring Change for the Better.
