The Oris x Cervo Volante collaboration begins with three Big Crown Pointer Date watches. Each has a gradient dial inspired by Alpine hues and a strap made of sustainable deer leather. They come with a pouch and a cardholder made of the same material. But they’re not limited, nor is this a one-time deal.

In 2017, friends Kadri Vunder Fontana, a biotechnology engineer and experienced businesswoman, and Conny Thiel-Egenter, a biologist specializing in nature protection and wildlife and habitat management, founded Cervo Volante. Their vision was to take the waste, specifically deer skins, and transform them into beautiful, hard-wearing, and ultimately sustainable footwear and accessories. Their business has grown quickly. After learning of Oris’s Change for the Better campaign, they approached the company and asked to collaborate on a sustainable deer leather strap project.

Cervo Volante’s hand-crafted products, low-impact methods, and huge vision are excellent. Not only are their leather shoes and accessories beautiful, but they also tell stories in a way typical mass-produced equivalents never could.

For example, they keep imperfections that occur during the life of a deer in their skins, where many companies would discard them. Their skins are never the product of farming, and they never require chemicals or fertilizers. And if the skins weren’t used in this way, they’d simply be burned. Cervo Volante has also employed Switzerland’s last two remaining tanneries, both of which use 100 percent vegetable tanning processes.
