Oris Big Crown with Cervo Volante deer leather
Time - Nature - Beauty
Time - Nature - Beauty. These three words symbolize the new collaboration between the Swiss watch manufacturer Oris and Cervo Volante. Time and nature are our most precious goods. From these, with extensive handcrafting, our deer leather is created, which forms a beautiful symbiosis with the iconic Big Crown watch by Oris.
And so begins the historic collaboration with three Big Crown Pointer Date watches. Each watch has a gradient dial inspired by alpine hues and a strap made of Cervo Volante deer leather in the three natural leather colors.
Deer leather watch accessories
The watches come with a case and a card holder made of Cervo Volante deer leather. A leather watch roll for up to three watches completes the series. In addition, an Oris edition of the popular Cervo Volante shopper is available in select Oris stores.
Cervo Volante natural leather features scars and scratches in the leather, as traces of wild deer life, and a sign of authenticity and uniqueness. The unique leather is used in a way that minimizes waste and offcuts, and showcases nature in the best possible way in design and form. For all Cervo Volante products, their components are analyzed for their environmental footprint and whenever possible, eco-friendly, natural, plastic-free and eco-degradable alternatives are sought and used.
A sustainable collaboration
Change for the Better campaign by Oris
The collaboration between the two Swiss brands is an expression of the Change for the Better campaign of the Swiss watch company Oris.
“It is our duty to respect and preserve nature and the environment”
Oris is working hard to produce watches more sustainably, improve the efficiency of its factory and supply chain, and reduce emissions. Last year, the Swiss company was certified by Climate Partner as a carbon-neutral company for this effort.
“A mechanical watch is a sustainable product – it uses existing kinetic energy and is designed to last. Oris focuses exclusively on mechanical watches. We have not produced a quartz model with a disposable battery since 1995.”
Ulrich Herzog, Chairman of the Board Oris
More than a decade ago, Oris launched partnerships with pioneering conservation organizations and brands that share its heartfelt commitment to protecting our planet. These pioneers include conservation organizations such as the Coral Restoration Foundation, the marine conservation organization Everwave, and the Wadden Sea Secretariat. For Oris, however, nature “on the doorstep” also counts. With 15 of its worldwide subsidiaries and a total of around a thousand people, Oris has collected trash as part of worldwide clean-up events. These collaborations and engagements have resulted in Oris special editions that express the company’s environmental efforts: A diver’s watch with a strap made of recycled PET and a watch case made of algae material, or the Aquis Date Upcycle with a dial made of recycled PET.
“One area where we are working to get better is in our watch straps. We are happy to announce the next step in this process: a collaboration with the Swiss company Cervo Volante, which makes beautiful products from sustainable deer leather.”
