As this is an effort to spread a positive message, I'll let the folks from Oris explain it in their own words -

The source of life
Oris continues its mission to bring change for the better with a limited edition watch that celebrates water – the source of life

Hölstein, Switzerland – Despite growing awareness and the efforts of government and international non- profit organisations, the world’s water continues to come under threat because of carelessness, neglect and waste. Pollution levels are rising – and something must be done. Oris is proud to introduce the Source of Life Limited Edition, a philosophical watch inspired by the River Rhine that highlights the plight of the world’s water sources and marks a new chapter in Oris’s mission to bring change for the better.
