New Oris Pilot Watches Benefit Medical Charity Wings of Hope
The timepieces are a natural fit for the humanitarian aviation organization, which brings medical aid to remote areas of the globe.
The Swiss watch brand is releasing two limited-edition timepieces in collaboration with the U.S.-based aeronautical humanitarian organization that brings medical support to remote and vulnerable communities around the globe.
Founded in the 1960s, Wings of Hope has delivered life-saving medical supplies and transported patients in more than 50 countries through its fleet of aircrafts, staff, and volunteers.
In 2021, Wings of Hope’s programs and services reached more than 65,000 people.
Twice nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the organization is primarily funded through donations. According to the organization, for every dollar donated to Wings of Hope, $0.86 directly funds its programs.
Wings of Hope also funds education with its “Soar into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)” program that sponsored 90 students last year in learning about humanitarian aviation.
The company partners with local non-governmental organizations around the globe to complete its missions, like the Flying Medical Service in Tanzania that brings a health clinic to remote Maasai tribes every two weeks.
To contribute to Wings of Hope’s mission, Oris has created two limited-edition timepieces to benefit the organization.
Both are based on the company’s signature “Big Crown” pilot’s watch and are powered by the caliber 401 five-day automatic movement.
Oris is making 1,000 watches in a 40 mm stainless steel version, which will be available in October, retailing for CHF 3,300, or $3,427 per current exchange rates.
Launching now is the 38mm 18-karat yellow gold version, which sells for CHF $15,500, or approximately $16,098.
